Kerrie Mama to DD 10 yo, DS 8 yo and DD 5
On the other hand, I can't wait to hold the babe in my arms sometimes too, so...
So I will cherish everyday from now on, I promise. No complaining. Oh wait, maybe I shouldn't have put that in writing... well as long as dh doesn't see it.
DS - CJ :, the love of my life
Mom to two boys, ages 8 and 11, and one blessing due May 8th.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40
I too am very nervous about 3 kids, but am excited to not be pregnant anymore. I cna't complain, though, as I still feel good. Too good, because my dh doesn't slow down for me...he has very long strides, and I just can't keep up! Fortunately, my 5 yo still walks slower than me, so i can keep pace with him!
I've been a bit consumed with the upcoming birth too. Like, hubby's head is in such a different place than mine. It's a typical mars n venus thing. I'm all about the baby, where to put things, what he'll be like..etc He's about redoing the backyard, working on our website...etc I was all worked up about all the tests I had yesterday and today (fetal eco cardiogram, ultrasound, nonstress test and biophysical profile..etc) I was like obsessed with baby how I worry about him and think about the impending labor and about how I want to meet him..what challenges will we face. Hubby cuts in to every conversation with things like "hey, could you research the web today for the best deal on a pool..." or "could you research on samurai weaponry so we could put a piece of history on our website?" I just sat down and cried!! Gotta love those pg hormones. We are all in different places!!!
It was cool to have the tests though, cuz we got to see him again! Miss the little buggah!!
In the meantime, I am truly enjoying my last summer with my daughter alone. She is fantastic - a truly remarkable person.

I'm due in just over four weeks!
Anyway, today is July 2, and I am due in Exactly one month! Yikes! I'm looking forward to my midwife visit this wk cuz we'll be starting EPO, and I really feel ready although I'm sure I'll be a couple of days late like I have been with everyone else. Baby has been sitting on my pelvic bone, causing great shooting pain when I stand/roll over in bed/etc. This is our last baby, so I'm trying not to complain about the pain and focus instead on those last baby kicks that I know I'll miss forever. It IS bittersweet!
