34 Weeks

I am excited beyond words at the pending arrival of my baby.  My husband has been the sweetest most supportive man during this entire process.  If you had asked me if he could get any sweeter at the beginning of this journey I would have told you he was already at maximum sweetness, but somehow he has found even more love to share with me and the baby.

I never anticipated how powerful of a journey pregnancy would be.  The two birthing classes we have attended were life changing for us both.  Not only were we able to grow in our relationship, and see just how lucky we are to not face some of the challenges we saw other couples face, but we have grown both our spiritual and practical knowledge of parenting beyond words.  These classes were nothing like what you see on TV, but rather spiritual workshops that have proved to be one of my favorite parts of the pregnancy process.

I chose a birthing center as the place to have our baby because they believe a baby should be born into the world in the same way we do, but I didn't anticipate how powerful the guidance I would gain from the midwives would be.  Each visit I gain more and more knowledge.  I have even compared the experience to friends as a college course.  I feel educated and ready for my journey.

So week 34 has been a week of reflection, a week of thankfulness, and a week of anticipation.
