Thought I'd write a short reflective post since I'm 38 weeks and only have 2 weeks left of being pregnant (If I'm lucky lol). Time has really flown by and I've been so lucky not to have had any problems during pregnancy. Even now I hardly feel pregnant, apart from the baby moving I just feel like I've put on a bit of weight - which I don't think has helped me mentally prepare for a baby suddenly appearing! To be honest, my time spent being pregnant has been the happiest time of my life. Normally I have periods of feeling low every so often but I have felt really upbeat and happy since I've been pregnant and I hope it continues. I think that before I would focus and worry about things which weren't worth the energy. Having something as important as a baby to think about just puts things into perspective and so I haven't been dwelling on the small stuff. I'm feeling very patient, the baby can take as long as it wants I'm not in a rush yet! I'm feeling more nervous than excited at the moment, I'm not a baby or child person at all and that has been a worry throughout. I just hope I enjoy being a full time mum!
I've found this site invaluable and I'm so thankful to everyone who posts on here its just amazing to have so much support and advice available! It's been great reading everyone's birth stories and seeing so many cute babies
