Maternity Leave – Day 20

195 pounds and 10 days until my due date.

Today was very similar to Day 12 (except I now weigh 4 pounds more – ugh!).

I woke at 7am rested and ready for the day ahead. I made the bed, swiffered the floors and got myself ready. All of the sudden, it was time for me to go. I grabbed some fruit and yogurt from the fridge and promptly headed out the door.

Today I had a playdate (this time with Amy and her daughter). We walked around Downtown Danville and the Iron Horse Trail as well as had lunch at Mangia Mi. We discussed motherhood and overall parent-child bonding. By the end of our playdate my feet had drastically increased in size but so had my comfort level with child birth and my potential ability to care for an infant.

Again, I am gaining the most incredible insights from my mommy friends. Far more than any of the books I have read. I only hope one day I will be able to return the favor.
