This is my 8th-month update, but I’m currently a few weeks til popping at the time of writing. I’m overcome with so many emotions- anxiety, excitement, fear, curiosity… you name it. We’ve discovered that this is going to be a one-woman battle- Slater won’t be allowed to stay with me at all during labor and delivery, and no family member or friend is allowed to visit or help us. I can’t even put into words how that makes me feel, but I guess I have to come to terms with the fact that I don’t have a choice in the matter and that this birth story will not be how I imagined it.
In spite of this obstacle, I’m aware of how incredibly lucky I am to be having this baby at all. At the end of the day, as long as both he and I are healthy, we are alright. ❤️
It’s still crazy to think about how this pregnancy came to us as a surprise, and how we’re now almost at our final stretch. For all the pregnant mommas like me, I hope this video will help you in any way. Whatever you’re feeling- you’re not alone. And if listing down my feelings and symptoms helps you feel more connected- I’ll try my best to film more and be here for you. At a time like this, we need all the support we can get.
