Musings on the upcoming birth

It’s recently dawned on me that we’ll only be a family of five for a few short weeks more. Then we’ll be a family of six!! Wow. How crazy is that?? This from the one who originally wanted no children, then maybe just one…. It’s hard to imagine even now. The baby will be here. Soon. Oddly enough, I don’t feel the anxiety that I always did with the other pregnancies. I don’t have the fear. I mean, sure, there’s always that nagging fear that I think everyone has, what if the baby has something wrong, what if things don’t go as planned…? But, for now, those thoughts don’t permeate much in the day to day. I’m taking it all as it comes, and rather calmly at that. I just don’t have the concerns that I have in the past. Maybe it’s because pregnancy and childbirth is sort of like old hat now, maybe it’s the upcoming home birth… I honestly don’t know. What I do know is that I’m very much at peace with things. I like that.
