Best Moments This Week: I was laying down just feeling Eliza wiggle today. I felt clear kicks in my side and I gently pushed, only to feel her push back! The best part is Ryan came home right at that moment and got to feel it, too!! It's like we got to play with her little bit today. I absolutely loved his face when she kicked him back. I'm so glad he had that bonding moment with her, too. Sometimes I feel a bit selfish to keep stealing these moments, so I was glad to share with Daddy.
Looking Forward to: #jennandjudy are tying the knot tomorrow!!!
Gestational Psychosis: It has been a long and stressful week with SOLs. I've also had some concerns weighing heavy on my mind about our birth preferences and how those will be respected. I went into our birthing class with a lot of concerns that I guess I had been pushing down. At the end of class, Gina was doing a fear releasing session. At one point she had us visualizing our new family right after delivery. Well, that got me tearing up and once I started, the flood gate was open and there was no stopping it! I had tears streaming down my face as she was bringing us back. I looked at Ryan and said "we have to go!" There are four other couples in our class, plus the instructors. We bonded a lot, but not that much! Fortunately, I was comforted by the understanding looks of four other hormonal women. I didn't see that one coming!
