    How beautifully written, Mere. You are right, your heart will never be the same. Even 30 years later, my heart “soars” when I see my beautiful Lauren and hear her voice. She and Lindsey are my life just as your little one will be to you. What a lucky child to be born into such an amazing family.

    What are your favorite maternity yoga pants? I’m not totally crazy about the ones I have, so I’d love to hear your picks. Oh also, which part of your back is hurting? I was having so much pain in the very lower part (like, top of butt crack), which is apparently called the sacram, so I started going to a chiropractor that specializes in treating pregnant women and it has been amazing. I mean, I had trouble walking sometimes, couldn’t do my normal workouts, and it just hurt so bad. All pain is pretty much gone now and there’s the added bonus that chiropractic care helps get baby in the ideal head-down, face-down position when the big day preaches. Anyway, just thought I’d share my experience in case it helps at all! 🙂

    You look so great! I felt the same way during pregnancy – loved being pregnant so much but did sometimes have those moments realizing how everything was going to change and how overwhelming my love for this little person was. If you’d like to see an example birth plan I’d be happy to share mine, I planned a medication-free birth so mine is geared towards that but could be easily adapted.

    Two quick things: I just got a kneeling chair at work and my lower back feels so great, I read some reviews that said they can be great for pregnant women. I tried an exercise ball but could never get really comfortable. And lastly, it was so helpful to have frozen several meals before our baby was born. Or ask friends to bring you meals that can be frozen in the month before baby is due. It’s wonderful to have healthy, filling and comforting meals in the freezer for quick lunches and dinners.
