As the final months of pregnancy draw to a close, take a moment to reflect on the miracle carried inside. What an unbelievably unlikely thing to happen: that you brought into this constantly changing world the next link in a chain that has remained unbroken for thousands of years. Think of the things your ancestors overcame. Think of the things you overcame. And try to imagine what is ahead for your child.
Savour this moment. How lucky you are to experience this little twinkle. Allow yourself to get lost in the “baby fog” and breathe it all in. When it passes, there will be only memories–and hopefully photos.
