With about a month to go, we are eagerly counting down the days until we will finally be a “family of three”.
The experience so far has truly been without a doubt “educational” but also enlightening, where up until only earlier this year, I have only read, seen, or heard about what is it like to be expecting from friends, family, books, movies, television, etc. Of course, nothing could ever prepare me for what is yet to come. After all the reading materials, classes, videos, and advice (both solicited and unsolicited), I can still only imagine what it would be like to bring in a new life and to be a father.
So far our midwives appointments/check-ups have been smooth sailing to date, our doula paid us a quick visit last week and gave us some more reading materials (and an interesting video to watch), and we are finally making a dent in tackling the ever-so-long list of preparation to-do’s and must-have essentials.
More to come later…
