Halfway to the finish line, and now we know there’s a little girl on the way. Some of you are even referring to her by name. (Let’s see if it sticks ;)) One thing is sure, we have a lot to do before she arrives.
- If all goes well, we’ll be moving into our new home in fourteen days.
- We have a birth to plan: doula or not? hospital preferences? birth classes?
- I need to help my work understand what I do so they can cover my leave.
- We need to find daycare for the baby for when I go back to work.
Just enumerating these things is stressful. Still the baby was active today. She tickled my ribs. It was like she was telling me, “Lighten up, Mama. We’re still celebrating!” We are celebrating! There is a baby girl thriving in my growing belly.
