What are you most excited about in having this little one?

What are you most fearful/apprehensive/unsure about? Either in labor or life after baby comes?

Are you doing anything to specifically mentally/spiritually/psychologically prepare, or are you just letting things happen the way they happen?

What are you most excited about in having this little one? I just think babies are exciting in general. It's a brand new life and I get to be a part of it. I'm still feeling like this is all sureal, though.

What are you most fearful/apprehensive/unsure about? Either in labor or life after baby comes? I just can't imagine what it will be like having 4. Although I felt that way before #3 came. We have a lot of changes and possible changes going on with pregnancy, and DH trying to move, and me taking time off from school to have the baby.

Are you doing anything to specifically mentally/spiritually/psychologically prepare, or are you just letting things happen the way they happen? I've been trying to work on staying in the present and being focused. School has helped with that a lot since that is important there. Other than that I've just been letting things happen.

how are you working on staying focused and in the present? that's always been a struggle for me. i get sucked into the future which is never helpful.

Mostly by just trying to remember to breath in deeply. Stopping when I feel chaotic and overwhelmed and asking myself what is important to me right NOW. It doesn't always work for me, but usually it does.

post #8 of 8
What pets have you got? I have a shephard husky mix and a grey cat. I don't know what breed the cat is.

What are you reading at the moment? I'm actually not reading much other than my school books. I did read a lot with my last pregnancy, though.

What kind of writing do you do? I like to write songs, poetry, stories. What ever strikes me.
