One part is all coming to an end and another part is just beginning! It’s so much fun to have a brand new baby – despite the lack of sleep and everything else that goes along with it, but their smell, their adorable little grunts and noises, the way they just cuddle right into the nook of your arms… it makes all the discomfort so worth it!
I’m really glad your mom is there to help out. It’s so much harder the second time around when you have another little one to chase around! So excited he is almost here!
It has been much harder this time. Harder than I originally imagined it would be. Juggling a four year old and work while being sick and sore and exhausted has made for some interesting days. 🙂 I love all aspects of a new baby, so I’m excited for ours to arrive!
WooHoo! So close! These next five weeks are going to fly by. I didn’t slow down much at all before Caroline was born and I think int made it easier to be home with a new baby and a toddler. I was already used to being tired and sore! 🙂
That’s how I am right now. My husband and my mom are on my case to slow down and take it easy, but why get used to be rested when there’s a baby on the way? 🙂
Oh the bittersweet of waiting for labor. It’s such an interesting experience. 🙂 Hopefully you won’t have too much longer before you see that sweet face for the first time!
Oh I hope not! It’s sad in the essence that this *may* be the last time I’m ever pregnant, but at the same time, all I can think is how much of a relief it will be to not be so sore and achy all the time.
It will be awesome. And glad to hear that your Mom has helped to lighten the load – this part of the pregnancy is the hardest. Not just physically but emotionally. Having support really helps.
It really is. I think the waiting game is the hardest part. Sitting around wondering day in and day out if “today is the day” is draining.
