We are at 34 weeks today and moving full steam ahead. Every day is a plethora of tasks to prepare for our baby girl’s big arrival. Honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I like to stay busy, but I’m also reminding myself to listen to my body. So instead of tackling the tough tasks (thanks, David), I’ve made a shift in my focus. I have my focus on the birth plan.
I quickly discovered how fast and furious these last few weeks can go by. Along the way, so many moms have stressed the importance of having a birth plan. I’ll be completely transparent and honest, at the start of this whole journey I always assumed it was simple – you show up and have a baby. Boy, I couldn’t be more wrong! After our prepared childbirth class, I immediately made mental notes on what my birth plan would begin to look like. Along the way, I came up with a few nifty tips to share with new moms that may be helpful.
