Hubby and wonderful sis-in-law kicked the prep into high gear these past couple days – crossing things off ‘the list’.
Made me get a little anxious to get things done too – like painting the cabinets (a brighter white) – replacing the hardware – cleaning the floors – doing all the laundry possible – cleaning walls and doors.
I didn’t really ‘nest’ before my son’s birth and everything I’ve read says that for most preggos it is anxiety and restlessness that makes us nest – rather than an instinct that marks impending labour – more of a fact that the longer we feel we are ‘waiting’ the more mundane things we distract ourselves with.
I’ve been putting so much pressure on myself to induce labour so I can try for a VBAC. I’m pretty much over my feelings of disappointment in my body’s ability to naturally birth my child – at this point I just want to avoid the long c-section recovery and be able to come home from the hospital after two days and lift my one year old from his crib!
