Modern Mami: The Panic Sets In

Deep breath, Kristina. It’s all going to work out. So I take some time for myself to gain perspective. I enjoy a prenatal massage and milk bath. I pray, meditate, and clear my head. I’m refreshed. And then a thought pops in my head: No need to worry--he’ll probably be late. Kim probably thought her baby would come late.  Her baby came early. My baby is going to come early.  Argggghhhhh!  I’m not ready……..!!!!!!

And the panic begins again!     

But, luckily this is totally normal; all expectant moms go through this. It’s just part of the experience and no one is looking at me like I’m a crazy lady, right? (Just nod your head and nobody gets hurt.)
