Oh my gosh, I cannot get over how fast these past couple of months have gone! It feels like I have gone from announcing our pregnancy to being almost ready to go… How does it happen so fast?
So I am feeling really good so far. None of the usual symptoms I was hearing about when I first fell pregnant like the swelling limbs, nausea etc so I am definitely counting myself lucky!
We have been attending some awesome antenatal classes at the hospital where we have registered for the birth which have been really informative and helpful. There are only a few couples in the class which means we have been able to ask questions and really interact with the midwife that has been teaching us. This week is our last week and I feel like it has really helped prepare us for the up-coming birth. I have also been recommended a lovely book/birthing method called Hypnobirthing and it has made a serious difference to the way I am viewing our birth and how we want everything to “go down” in the maternity ward. The best part is that the midwives we have been seeing for our check-ups and the teacher from our antenatal class have all been so supportive about the way we want to give birth and how natural we want to go so I am actually looking forward to the experience and just can’t wait to meet our beautiful little baby. It’s going to be amazing and apparently so empowering to me as women… I just cannot wait to be the one who gets to welcome our little baby into this world in a relaxed, calm and natural way with my phenomenal, supportive and loving husband by my side!
