What's keeping me up?
Sometimes, it's him having the hiccups. But seriously, who has the hiccups at 4 in the morning?!
But other times, it's my mind that keeps me up. It wanders and I worry about things that are so beyond my control. I think about the process of giving birth (which I have always been terrified of... we're talking it's always been one of my biggest fears in life. And I'm 3 days away from doing just that), or how there are going to be countless more sleepless nights, or how I know that relationships are going to change due to the tiny human who is going to need me to survive. There are other thoughts too, but those are the main ones that have been standing out. As I said, they're all things that are beyond my control.
In spite of all of the worries, I keep telling myself (and I am constantly told by others) that all of this is So. Worth. It. And I believe it. I really do. I think I need Saturday to get here for me to get over those concerns. And then, like most mothers, I will have plenty of other things that I'll worry about. Again, they'll probably be things that I can't control. Haha.
Anyways, that was a super long introduction for a song that's been encouraging me this week. I haven't been able to stop singing it since the first time I heard it. I hope you enjoy!
