This past week began my third trimester. I don’t want to imply that I see the light at the end of the tunnel yet because three months (or longer?) can be a long time. But as the calendar flips to March this week and we welcome springtime soon, I feel it’s at least getting closer to this warm-weather baby.
We’re starting to realize there’s really a baby making her appearance soon, and things with her name on them are arriving little by little.
I left the midwives office today feeling grateful again for my choice of provider. I feel valued and empowered and like a real partner in all these steps and decisions along the way. I can have conversations and ask honest questions in a way I never could with my last go-around. It feels so good to be respected.
