Well, you are about to enter Phase #4 of pregnancy … 32-the birth.
This is a time for self reflection. Now ‘The Birth’ is right around the corner. If your baby was to be born right now there is a good chance it would survive and be fine … certainly under cooked but definitely a viable baby.
At this point, your baby is clearly felt inside the mother’s belly. Over the next two months your baby will put on weight and fill out the uterus. The amount of fluid surrounding the baby is reduced relative to the amount of baby.
You can now see the baby moving around and often identify a foot or elbow.
If you’ve been learning birth and coaching skills together during Phase #3 you are already becoming more confident about the birth. If you’ve been working through The Pink Kit
then you should begin doing the internal work … preparing the birth canal to let out what is becoming obviously a big object. Yes, now is the time when you realize this baby is not the size of a golf ball.
This is when the quality of clarity comes to the fore. You are becoming more comfortable with how you will be able to help this 3 dimensional process be effective. You can also see that within a few weeks you will be a father. It’s almost as though everything starts to come into sharp focus. And it will continue from now on.
Clarity is a quality that will always help you in your role as a dad. So, let’s move into Phase #4 and learn how these qualities of ‘becoming’ a father reach their peak all the way through the birth of your baby.
