It’s Going to be Soon…

Yasmina at 40 Weeks

Yasmina had her last appointment with the doctor following her pregnancy today. She’s likely to give birth some time from this weekend to mid next week. I’m very excited, but naturally a little apprehensive. I think I’m prepared for the changes ahead by I have some doubts in my mind about how I’m going to handle everything. Work has been a little stressful lately and there have been a lot of changes in the organisation lately. It really feels like this is going to be one of the pivotal moments in life. Of course, the birth of the baby will be a great moment in my life anyway. But other things which are also happening seem to be reinforcing the feeling that becoming a father makes other priorities slide around and fall into place.

If you’re reading, I love you very much Yasmina. And I will love our little baby boy too, with all my heart.

    Thanks Oiseau

    Congratulations on your becoming officially the frog fiancée and good luck planning the upcoming wedding.


  5. Aww….it’s only been 4 months but it already seems so long ago when I gave birth to my own sweet little boy.

    Best wishes to you all! May your little angel’s journey into this world be one of ease…for all of your sakes. ;o)
