Right now I am in my 26th week – wow! Only 14 more (maybe) Saturdays to sleep in. Only 14 more (maybe) baby free weekends. I went on a solo trip to visit my cousins in Boston this weekend, and it was great, very relaxing. Last night Ryan and I started looking at a book my dad gave me for my birthday – Lennart Nilsson’s A Child Is Born. The photos of children in the womb are breathtaking and it is so neat to see a visual of what your baby looks like at this point. However, I had to do a little Lamaze breathing when I got to the section with photos of labor. Wow. Wow. Wow. I’ve seen the Miracle of Life video before, and we’re going to be taking the birthing class, where I hear you have to watch like 8 versions of someone giving birth, but Wow. I really haven’t looked into the details at all yet. I am focused on the here and now, and what’s to come after the birth of our baby daughter, but for now I’m enjoying skipping over the whole birthing a baby part.
