‘Round here, preparing for new life means contractions, which for now are the dreaded and often annoying Braxton Hicks contractions…on a side note, who decided that fake contractions would be fun? Anyway, it means feeling immense pressure anytime you move, but it also means feeling life moving around…feeling those little baby kicks, squirms, and hiccups.
‘Round here, preparing for life means getting daddy ready to be the “single parent” that is responsible for all things school related, therapy related, and home related, so that mama can focus on the baby for the first month of her life…I can’t thank my husband enough for taking on all of that, and I can’t express enough how much I DON’T envy those parents that are single parents every single day…you guys have it rough, and you have my love!
Finally, ’round here, preparing for life means, counting down to the moment when the last nine months come to a head, and everything I have been through, and all the preparations we have made, will come to fruition, and I will lay eyes on another beautiful creation, made partly of me, and partly of the love of my life. I can’t wait, and my only wish is that this sweet girl knows that she is loved.
Thank you for reading a story from #BehindTheBlogger Hop. Every 2 weeks a group of bloggers is given a writing prompt. These prompts are very open ended, so our bloggers can write about whatever they desire. The main rule is that their blog post directly relates to the topic of that week. The point of this hop is for our readers to get to know us on a personal level. Please hop along and read all of the blog posts in this weeks hop. Just click the links below. If you want real and raw emotion, then you will find it here. After you read each post, please comment and share. We want to get to know you too!
