This is Life

|

Week 29

This last week I cannot tell you how many tears I shed, smiles I gave, and laughter enjoyed. I forgot five appointments, every single day of the week, and barely remembered to make it to my birth class. I took seven days of prenatal vitamins, drank 478 ounces of pure water, ate a refrigerator full of organic vegetables and fruit, and inhaled McDonalds burgers and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts on more than one occasion. I had insomnia every single night and took naps every single day to make up for those sleepless nights. I saw my baby’s face on a 3D ultrasound, toured where I was going to give birth to her, and had a few “moments” of realization. This is life.
