I’m currently 35 weeks along, and my Braxton Hicks contractions have increased significantly, and more intense. While they’re definitely not labour contractions, it does bring me closer to the reality that in a few days to weeks I’ll be giving birth.
The hospital bags are packed, car is loaded plus I’ve been doing related online classes, and all the necessary exercises, and dietary changes in preparation for the birth.
My husband has now been working from home which is a blessing considering he works in financial services which is still heavily paper based, and also I’ve been trying to prepare our dog for all the noises of a baby so she doesn’t bark at him.
So while you can never be completely ready enough for the changes to your life a baby brings, I’m as ready as I’ll ever be.
