I have to say I was not planning on being a mom of 4 and I am feeling overwhelmed (I think partly because I am so tired and nauseous). I am feeling old. AND our life is in big transition right now (with employment and housing)...so anxious about getting more settled before #4 arrives!
Part of me is so grateful that there is a big gap in my kids (they will be 9,6,3 when #4 comes along) but the other part of me feels like this just keeps going on, and on, and on. We did foster care after #1 (before adopting #2) so I have had one (and sometimes 2) in diapers for over 5 years and I have been pregnant or nursing for the last 3.5 years. I had JUST stopped carrying a diaper bag a few months ago. Is it hard having them spread out? I keep thinking I will have one in high school, middle school, elementary school and in pre-school....it makes me wonder about my ability to be there for all of them.
Anyway, enough of my complaining! I know this will work out and I will not even be able to remember what life was like before #4 came along. I love being pregnant and giving birth and I am excited to meet her (but right now I just feel like sleeping for the next 8 months until labor starts)!
But I just love that there are other moms on here that are pregnant with #4, #5 or #6! It makes me feel not so alone in this journey of having a large family! You women are all so inspiring! I am in awe of your peace about adding another to your family!
