“Two weeks till the baby is due :-)”
With her due date almost here, actress Sarah Drew took to Twitter today to share this new pic of her beautiful bump. The Grey’s Anatomy star and her husband Peter Lanfer are counting the days until the arrival of their first child.
In a post written for Celebrity Baby Scoop last month, the lovely mom-to-be opened up about how she overcame her motherhood worries:
I think I spent the first two trimesters trying to wrap my brain around the fact that my life was about to change dramatically. I had a lot of fear and anxiety about being a parent, about my marriage changing, and about what it would mean to make the sacrifices required to enter into parenthood. All of that fear prevented me from really connecting to the baby growing in me.
At the beginning of my third trimester, I asked my dad for advice to help me conquer this fear. His advice transformed my experience. He said that I should make a habit of ‘aggressive thanksgiving.’ He suggested that I spend time each day in gratitude for everything that I have been given, and when those thoughts of fear and anxiety creep in, I should replace them immediately with thanksgiving. I started doing that each morning, and after two days of ‘aggressive thanksgiving,’ I felt totally released from the fear and anxiety, and instead all I felt was joyful anticipation for the coming of our baby.
