Well with Dd2 I hadn't even brought a bag nevermind packed it, but then I did have her at 34 weeks.
I have been follwing your posts and think you are a very strong lady.
I had a condition when pregnant with Ds that meant all the while he was inside me my own body was attacking him and making him ill. Like you I just wanted to meet him so I could stop thinking of him as a problem and love him as my baby.
Your baby will be very lucky to have you as it's mum
Agree with FioFio you are so strong and understandably scared. That is why you are going to be such a special mother - your baby already senses your love and strength I am sure.
I have nothing but admiration for the way you have been these last 9 months. You can't imagine how much I hope that the birth of your son will bring much happiness into the lives of you and your family and some answers that enable you all to welcome him with extra special joy.
emkana - I've been reading your threads and also think, with the rest of the people who have posted today, that you are an incredibly strong woman. But, (hopefully this makes sense), remember that your baby needs you!
Needs to be there when the going gets tough. Needs you to love and care for him when he arrives, no matter whether it's for 1 hour, 1 day, 1 month, 1 year or (fingers crossed for you) many more years to come.
This baby needs you to make sure that from minute 1 you have all the things that he needs, clothes, food,(BF or Bottle it doesn't matter) something to take him home in! Basically he needs you to pack your/his bag!
(Please don't take this the wrong way, I just wanted to help.)
BTW - I'm 33 wks and have not completely packed my bag either. But having started it makes me feel a lot better.
hi, have read some of your posts and really feel for you. you have been so strong so far. allow yourself a weak moment and then pack some chocolate, a blanket and a few vests in a bag - then you are done.
emkana i have been followin your threads also, and you have been so brave, you are bound to feel odd about your baby actually coming into the outside world. at least whilst baby is in you,you can pretend everything is normal and its all a bad dream huh? but wait till you get your baby, all the worries and stresses of the past nine months will just be forgotten you wont even notice there is anything different about baby she will be perfect to you as al babies are to their mums. thinking of you, good luck! xx
Tears make more room inside us for strength and love, I reckon...and how could you not have some, sometimes? Also followed your threads Emkana, and just wanted to add good wishes and hugs and will be thinking of you over coming days/weeks.
Don't be embarresed Emkana - You've a lot on your mind!
But enjoy DD1's birthday (Give her my wishes too)
and then after tommorow you will be a lot stronger and you can make a start. It doesn't have to be much, like Pesme says a blanket, a few vests in a bag; the rest will come.
Sending lots of hugs for you.
You'll be fine!
Looking forward to a birth anouncement.
