Despite having sleepless nights and energy depletion, I am fighting against the home stretch’s fatigue to appear radiant and healthy as before. Only the Lord can recharge with me His supernatural batteries to hang on to this training before the real battlefield (read: motherhood) begins.
As of today, I am exactly a month away from the expected due date. There are so many things on the to-do list such as nursery setup, hospital bag packing, reading up on newborn care, and most of all to strengthen my willpower to withstand the mother of all pain in the world – labor pain.
Preparing for childbirth can be the most wonderful experience but it can turn into a depressing one if I do not learn the right techniques. Fear and anxiety must not be clouding my mind from achieving a supernatural birth in God’s grace. The enthusiasm of accomplishing an all-natural delivery without epidural or any other medicated options is my main desire.
Dear Lord, give me the strength to do this and may AnnaKate be delivered easily and heathily. I pray for no hiccups throughout my upcoming labor but a supernatural birth anointed by Your holy hands.
