Full Term!

by Hannah

This is an exciting week for the Mayo family! My last day at work was Tuesday, and also as of Tuesday I am officially in my “safe dates”, meaning I could have the baby any time and he would be considered full term! While there are some things I still want to do, and buy, we are ready and have everything we need. I picked up an extra package of Seventh Generation chlorine-free diapers yesterday- we’ll be using those in the beginning along with the cloth diapers I have so far, while we decide which type of cloth we like best and build our collection. By the way, here’s a picture of the ones we’ve gotten- it might seem crazy but I think cloth diapers are pretty cute :)

I am filling my days with books, crafts, baking, walking, relaxing and random pampering things like the amazing prenatal massage I got yesterday and the henna I applied today (in pic). I am trying to get my mind in a good place for birth- relaxed, focused, fearless. I often feel like I have little to say, but lots of thoughts; I’m very mellow and introspective. I’ve been journaling a lot, and writing/talking to the baby a lot too. I feel every movement now- I have no idea how he’ll have any more room in there to grow! I wonder every day if it’s the one in which he’ll be born, but I am trying not to get impatient, and to really enjoy these last days or weeks before he comes.
Here’s my hennaed belly- 37weeks,3days:
