The countdown is on for our Iqaluit, Nunavut baby
The time is ticking away before Anjhela becomes a mom and I become a dad. These are exciting times for us, and I'm not sure you're ever ready for the change that comes from becoming a parent.
Anj's belly is quite big, but she doesn't look any different from the back, other than the fact that the bump is visible at the sides. Otherwise, it's sometimes easy to forget she's pregnant.
Anjhela keeps saying she wants to go into labour now, but I'm going to miss the bump. That said, we're both looking forward to seeing the person behind it.
People keep asking if we will be having our baby here, which of course we will. Qikiqtani General Hospital is just around the corner, and the doctors take a midwife-style approach to childbirth, saying it's a natural life event, so they embrace that.
We plan to head to Ontario for vacation at the end of August for four weeks, so hopefully by then our baby will be ready to take her first trip with us, and ready to meet her grandparents and aunts, uncles and cousins, as well as our friends.
Becoming a dad is not something I ever thought about, so I hope I am up for the challenge! If you have any advice, please tell me in the comments section below.
P.S. I now have a newsletter notice below, as I plan to update this site quite regularly once the baby comes. If you'd like to stay up to date on what we're doing, please sign up. I won't be a pest!
