tomorrow (technically today) is my first mother’s day. i know travis has some surprises up his sleeve, and i’m excited to find out what they are! i would give my left arm right about now for a cold beer and some sushi, but that ain’t happenin’ anytime soon. i’ll settle for a glass of pomegranate juice and a foot rub, please.
on a different note, it hit me today that i’m only a few weeks away from my third and final trimester. i’m really starting to feel the urge to nest and get little sylvie’s nursery nook ready for her arrival. speaking of her arrival, is it strange that i’m really excited to labor and give birth? like, REALLY excited. i have never felt better about or more secure in my body. nor have i ever felt unsure of its ability to birth this child, my precious daughter. i feel STRONG and ready. i’ve felt like this from the beginning and keep thinking i’ll change my tune as august 31st approaches, but everyday i remain steadfast in my decision to attempt a natural birth. this is what my body was made to do. not only do i think i can do it, i think i can ROCK it!
i’m so excited to meet my sylvie.
