The closer I get to D-day, the more I think about birth. Such an exciting event, yet, oh-so painful. I am totally looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time. I have spent no time preparing for it as I haven't spent a great deal of time thinking about much of what's going to happen after the baby's born.
I purposely stop myself from thinking about "how I am going to do it" after the baby is born because my theory this time around is that what comes will come and if I try to anticipate everything that could/may happen during the birth/post-partum period I will be worried and anxious. So, I have saved myself a great deal of anxiety by simply avoiding the topic all together. Good planning or bad planning, I don't know? We'll see soon enough.
My plan is to roll with it...who knows what's going to happen. Each of my pregnancies, births, and post partums have been very different. I have never recorded any of my birth stories, so hopefully I will over the next few days in preparation for the arrival of our newest little sweetheart!
