I had my usual talk with the baby in my womb last night, softly telling him that it’s nearly time. In fact, I told him that he can actually come out already when he is ready, because his mommy already is.
We are now on our 39th week, and at this stage, the baby is already in full term. Hence in any day, any time now, I could finally see, smell, and touch him… I could finally kiss the baby I’ve been carefully carrying in my womb for nine months. That excites me in more ways than I could explain. I’ve been praying to have him, preparing to have him, and he’s coming really soon to meet us. How wonderful is that?
I am joyfully waiting for the baby to arrive. By that time comes, I will just have to offer my right hand to God, and He will direct me what to do. It’s astounding how He has prepared me physically and emotionally for childbirth. Right now, I feel more than ready. I am going to face birth without fear beacuse I know I am not going to handle it all by myself. He will be with me all through out. I hear Him say:
“I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.”
I feel stronger, ready for the dreaded labor, and very eager to push. Yes, I am going to face #BirthWithoutFear. I am looking forward to that magical moment.
Mommy is ready, baby. Are you?
