I love being pregnant. LOVE it.
Do I get horrible back/pelvic/hip pain? Do I get intense headaches? Am I exhausted? Nauseous all day? Yes, yes, yes and yes!
I will have had 4 children in about 5 years. My body feels it. Trust me.
But, I’m growing a human. Our little human : )
Pregnancy makes me feel whole. Needed. Irreplaceable. Beautiful.
There is no one else that can carry OUR child.
I have started to get nervous that I will feel a deep sadness when I’m done. For so long, I have been pregnant Jayme. It’s a responsibility I don’t take lightly or ungratefully. I know I am blessed to be pregnant and to have the ability to carry a child. I am proud of my big tummy. I am proud to show the world my baby from the start.
As my due date grows closer, I’ve realized this is the last first time for so many things…
This was the last time I saw our baby for the VERY first time.
This was the last time I got to see that little heartbeat bump bump bump.
This was the last time we anxiously awaited the gender ultrasound.
This is the last time I will feel little baby kicks throughout the day.
This is the last time my husband will feel a kick from the outside.
This is the last time we will sing to my tummy.
This is the last time I can blame my absentmindedness on “pregnancy brain”.
This is the last time we will choose a name that lasts a lifetime.
This is the last time we will head to the hospital to have a baby.
This is the last time we will MEET our child.
A part of me will always miss these moments, but I’m even more excited to complete our little (big) family.
We have so many first ahead of us.
I can’t wait : )
