I’ve been unsure whether to write this or not and indeed whether to use the word ‘anxiety’ because I’m not even sure that’s what I’m feeling! Anxiety about child birth is a really normal thing, but with each day that I’m overdue, I’m finding it harder to shut my brain down and today a lot of thoughts and emotions came spilling out.
Ah, pregnancy. This complete miracle, the creation of new life, the joy of knowing that your child is growing within you. Then comes the due date and with its passing, every moment that you’re overdue feels like it takes the same amount of time as the whole pregnancy did up to that point! So, what to do when you’re overdue.
