We have decided that this is it for us. But my DD was 10 months old when I got pregnant. So my pregnancies have been very close together. I love being pregnant. There are aspects I don't like, of course, but this is my absolute favorite part, having a nice belly and feeling the baby move all the time. With my first I was 5 days overdue and I still wasn't in that mode of "Get this baby out!" It's a little rougher this time because it's summer and hot and I have a toddler to run after and who still needs to be picked up a fair amount, but still. It's gone by so, so, so fast and I can't believe it's almost over and this is the last time I get to do this. I think that's part of what's bothering me too, is how quickly the time has gone. And a lot of days I just don't feel ready to be a mom of 2! (too late now I guess!)
Does anyone have any ideas how to get over this? Or at least suck out and savor every last moment of what's left?
