37 weeks. 3 to go until my due date. The final stretch.
These last few months of pregnancy are bittersweet for me. I'm so excited and anxious to meet our new babe-- to feel soft baby hair against my cheek and to finally snuggle the little being inside me. But I know I'll also miss being pregnant. I'll miss the way I feel so grounded-- connected to the earth and a greater life force. I'll miss the rolling waves in my belly-- the security of holding my child safe within my womb. I'm doing my best to stay present for these next few weeks-- to soak up the sensations and feelings of pregnancy that I treasure so much while also preparing myself for the transition ahead.
