37 weeks and full term! It’s the waiting game that really kills us. Being first-time parents, we don’t know what to expect, when to rush to the hospital, when to panic, etc… The husband is quite on the paranoid side, I think he’ll be more frightened than me. I played episodes in my mind a dozen times on how to say to him that “I’m giving birth and please bring me to the hospital” as calm as possible.
Blame it in the movies we watched particularly Tagalog movies where the pregnant woman shouts at the top of her lungs “Manganganak na ako!!!” and then there’s a commotion not only inside the house but the also around the neighborhood. But friends who already experienced giving birth assured us that it’s not like in the movies, *exhales*, what a relief!
