I was always pretty ambivelant about pregnancy. I love feeling the baby move and the kind of bonding you have with the baby which is unlike any other relationship in existance. Pregnancy is facinating, but I really just want the baby. I threw a big party for myself (not literally) when I was over the morning sickness knowing I will never have to do that again. I'm sort of looking forward to the babymoon, but also worried about what kind of parent I'll be to my 2 year old with so little sleep. And I'm worried about her adjustment.
I have been thinking about how this season in my life--having babies--is almost over. It seems I spent my whole life looking forward to this time and now it's here and almost over. Now I have to start looking at what happens next, which I honestly have never done! As of this summer I will have been married 10 years, will have a house and two kids, an interesting career (which will go on hiatus for a while)...What's next? Child raising, of course, I just have to figure out what that looks like to me. And what kind of work I'll do since that's important to me...
