Well, I’ve reached full term so this may be my last update to my photo journal. I can’t believe how fast time has gone these past few weeks, now that the leaves are falling and we are waking up to dark and frosty mornings. Back in the summer, I felt like November 9th would never come; it seemed so far away. But here I am less than three weeks away and we could welcome our little girl any day.
I’m not going to lie, this pregnancy has been tough on me. I feel more tired and achier and more uncomfortable than I did the first time around. It probably has a lot to do with having a toddler in the house and lots of work to get done. Plus, moving in September and getting settled in, and driving back and forth to the city for appointments have kept me busy.
I try not to complain because I am so thankful for this life growing inside me, but some days I’m so ready for this baby to be born. It’s probably something every mom feels, that anxiousness for your baby’s arrival and to get on to the next step, for her to be healthy and to be able to hold her in your arms. But at the same time, not wanting to let go of this moment because who knows if it will happen again (or if you want it to!) Every kick (or poke jab or hiccup) is both wonderful and uncomfortable.
I’ve been preparing myself for delivery, and I’m so nervous but hopeful that it will go well. I have an awesome doctor who keeps reassuring me that I’m going to rock it, and I hope she’s right. I did it before, I can do it again, right?
Soon, these updates will turn from pineapples and pumpkins to a new little person. I’ll try not to overdo it with the photos, but I can’t make any promises! I am so glad I followed through with this photo journal. I plan to make it into a photo book that I can display and share.
So the next time I post, I’ll be showing off our new addition. I can’t wait to meet her! Wish us luck as we start this new adventure xo
