It seems I have more and more emotional days as the birth of this baby draws near.
I knew that I was going to talk to my OB today about my fears and thoughts surrounding this baby’s birth, so I was already “in that place” emotionally. I fought and gave into tears off and on all day long. And of course, I cried as I talked with my OB. Through teary-eyes, she told me when I give birth, “We’ll all cry…it will be okay.”
I still have so many questions and thoughts. I can’t even begin to wrap my brain around them. Will my body kick in and do what it needs to do? Will I have scary thoughts and fears during the labor and delivery? Will I be able to be fully engaged in this birth the way I want to be?
