My first blog in what feels like forever. I read back that last post before I began writing this, and I’ll be honest, it feels like a different life altogether. The fear as I typed those last paragraphs was visceral as my fingers tapped the keys. I wasn’t sure what the next weeks had in store for me, even though we had ensured we had the best laid plans for our baby’s arrival. Well, it turns out that even the best laid plans can become entirely redundant in planning the arrival of a baby. I should have known that really.
