Ryan and I couldn’t be more excited about becoming new parents. The idea of finally meeting her crosses my mind about a million times a day! Every night, we watch and feel her little kicks and wiggles and sometimes get a little hiccup show. Although pregnancy has its ups and downs, it is truly amazing and a blessing. I think I will miss feeling her move around in my belly from time to time. (Probably even wish I could put her back in on those nights when we aren’t getting any sleep) Jk!
Last Tuesday, we went to our first birthing basics class and learned quite about what to expect when in labor as well as safety precautions and ways to prepare for baby’s grand entrance. I myself was shocked after watching the delivery video where every last detail was shown. I’m sure my delivery will be much easier and only take a couple minutes. Ha! Who am I kidding? I am scared to death of labor and contractions! Hoping all goes well.
