Readying for childbirth

Childbirth. I’m quite ready, and so is my baby. I’m currently on my 38th weeks now, and 13 days more to go! WOW. We have come this far, baby! Thank you so much for assuring me everyday of your little kicks in my ribs, in my bladder, in my belly. I just love the feeling how you kick inside me. Thank you so much, Lord, for the gift of life.

Last night, husband and I attended mass at 6:30p.m. Fortunately, there was an ongoing confession. I wasn’t prepared to confess, but decided right away to confess after I had meditated for a few seconds. We just missed the Holy Communion, though, so we are returning tonight at the Church. Last night, too, it was so timely that the parish priest saw me, and he prayed over me. He asked me first about how many days more to go before my delivery, and I told him, “2 weeks”. He prayed over me and said, “You’re now ready. It won’t be 2 weeks. It would be anytime.” Haha.

I am hoping that my baby would come out from my womb in her own time, and God’s time. I don’t know her current weight right now. I might know it on March 22. But I did gain a lot. I hope she has gained weight, too, just enough for her to come out of my pelvis.

I am almost done with the book, The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, maybe tonight. It took me long to read it because I really have digested every word into my consciousness and my subconscious mind. Through the book, I learned to visualize a painless, smooth, natural delivery. I can’t wait to review the whole book and post it in my blog as my entry for the 2009 Reading Challenge.
