39 weeks and this little babe seems to be super comfortable in there ♂️ .
There are so many challenges throughout pregnancy, most of which we have no idea about or can even understand until we actually go through it ourselves. I’m constantly learning more and more about my body, experiencing a range of emotions on some days, driving countless kilometres to and from appointments, being given advice from others (yes they mean well but some advice is best given if asked for first), as well as NOW the waiting game to meet our little man. This waiting feels like a whole new stage of the journey, having so many thoughts, excitement and anticipation running through my mind wondering what day will he choose to join us earthside. .
But the challenges have certainly been outweighed by the endless support, love, soulful chats and guidance I have received from my nearest and dearest friends and the excitement from my family. Watching my body grow and change every week has been nothing short of incredible, full of wonder! And being able to feel our little man roll, turn, hiccup and kick each day is something I will absolutely miss when we meet him.
So the waiting game is real and having connected with so many mummas this week sharing stories, it’s certainly a joint challenge that requires so much trust and patience. Trusting that our body and baby knows what it is to do, knowing they choose the right time to be birthed and having patience with the unfolding (something that is an ongoing life lesson for this semi-recovered perfectionist ). .
I have a feeling this little man may just boot my semi-perfectionistic approach to life in the butt big time. Challenging me with trust, flow, patience, embracing the unknown and living in the now. All of which are high values of mine and that I coach my my divine clients on, but i feel it’ll be stepped up a notch as the journey of motherhood enters a new stage! Some of many things he’ll be here to teach me in this lifetime 🥳#bringiton #thepowerofnow - 25 minutes ago
