We had our last midwife apt this morning. It was very emotional. This whole process had been so amazing, I'm having a hard time with this part coming to a close. I know that this is just the beginning of a lifetime of great experiences with our new little one, but this is hard for me. Anyone else going through this?
I totally understand. We had our last appointment yesterday (6 week). baby girl is already 12 1/2 pounds (she was 7 lbs 4 oz at birth), and it just seemed like everything has gone by so fast! I was actually looking at pregnant women with envy.
Yea, I know, I touched a friend's very pregnant belly the other day and it all came back to me, how it felt to be pregnant. I miss that feeling as well. I had a wonderful pregnancy and birth so I guess that helps. Also, it's nature's way of making you want to do it all over again!
I'm looking forward to when my kids are 7 and 10 kidding kind of!
But really, this is a great time. I'm really happy where I'm at and I feel so fortuate to have my two beautiful boys. I wouldn't go back to pregnancy or early postpartum if you paid me a million bucks. I much rather he be smiling at me on the outside!

Yes, I can totally relate. I feel the same way. I cried after my six week visit with my beautiful midwife and her assistant. They have been with me for my last four births and I consider them family. I still keep in touch with them, but it's not the same as seeing them every three weeks.
Well, maybe I'll be pregnant again and just have to go back!
