Being pregnant for the third time is a strange thing. On one hand, I am super busy with my other children that I don’t have much time to think about this pregnancy or prepare for what is (SOON) ahead. On the other hand, I feel like I “get it” more this time than the others. I certainly more aware of what is happening inside my body and I certainly know what is ahead when it comes time for delivery. (Oh gosh, am I ready for that again?!) I can’t believe that I am just about to begin my 3rd trimester! It’s getting real! Here are my thoughts about nearing the final stage of pregnancy…/>
Time, speed up please! Being pregnant for the third time in three years makes it seem like I’ve been pregnant forever. I am certainly not a person who LOVES pregnancy, so I’m looking forward to NOT having a child growing inside of me!
I have so much to do! Pretty sure with my other two pregnancies, I had already put the nursery together by this point. Heck, I probably even had a hospital bag packed. Poor Baby #3’s nursery is empty. And while I have a plan for what it will look like in there, I haven’t really started a single thing. I have so much to do before she arrives!
I can’t wait to have a newborn! I am one of those persons who LOVES the newborn stage. Seriously, I crave it. I can’t wait to have a tiny little thing to hold and snuggle and care for. I can’t wait to see my other girls learn to be big sisters to this new little love.
I can’t wait to be a family of five! Yeah, things are going to be a lot more hectic, but my goodness, I am excited. Chances are, this is our last baby, so I’m excited for us to be “complete.”
