It’s finally come to that last hurdle of this beautiful journey!
The stage I’ve been looking forward to, but at the same time dreading. Let me explain…
Majority of the year I’ve been carrying this beautiful human inside of me, and it gets more and more exciting as the weeks start getting closer. I CANNOT WAIT TO MEET YOU! I wonder who you will look like, will you have my hair? I bet you’re going to be a footballer or maybe a boxer because the way you kick and punch me, mate you’re bringing home a gold medal one day! He’s definitely going to be some sort of athlete though because mummy and daddy are!
With the last hurdle – comes the insomnia, but at the same time the tiredness, the lack of breath, the back aches, the swollen feet, the heartburn. Not really that much fun, but all so worth it!
The past week has been crazy, it’s like this baby doesn’t want me to sleep, when I want to sleep is when the full kicks and punches come to play. Why now please? I ask myself every time! So we lie there together, I massage you through my belly and sometimes we chat just to keep you calm so mummy can sleep.
My mates with babies keep saying; “Make sure you get as much sleep as you can because once the baby comes you won’t get any”! With that I look at them and say “Thanks” (in my head I’m like, I know this already stop reminding me!!)
But how do I sleep when no position is comfortable? Or when I feel like the meal I ate 3hours ago is still sitting in my throat? How about the fact that I feel like baby is trying to show off his skills like he’s at a Manchester United football trial?
Well simple answer is I don’t! But what I do do is embrace it, because soon I’m not going to have a bump to play with, or get the comments like “you look so good pregnant, you haven’t even put on weight” *flicks braids*
My bump has been my best friend! I love knowing I’m carrying a human being who’s soon going to be my child and will call me mummy!
I do get scared sometimes though, I want to be able to provide for you and never ever lack! I want to support you in ALL you do! I just want you to have the best life possible.
There’s no time to waste now, no more favours, just straight dedication to make sure I’m ready for your arrival. I remind myself everytime, GODS GOT ME!
As I lie here on my babymoon in France (my last holiday before baby comes), I thank God for this beautiful blessing! I honestly CANNOT wait to meet you! The love I have for you is already undescribable, YOU ARE BLESSED!
Roll on the last hurdle! I’m ready for you!
