I can’t believe that I am 31 weeks pregnant with my very last baby. I know I have said this before but I will tell you that I just don’t have it in me to do this again. I have loved every second of my second and third trimester so far but my body is telling me it’s time to be done. I’m so exhausted this time around and I know that is a combination of the amount of children I already have and my age. I am more than thankful that I have each and every one of my children but baby #5 is our last one. I am finally at peace with closing the baby factory and starting the journey that includes 5 kids and the rest of our lives together. I have a feeling that baby will be here in about 7 weeks or so and I am enjoying these final weeks and really just relishing in the final kicks, squirming and movement that I have been enjoying for 13 weeks.
It was initially hard for me to give up on the idea of having more children as I really do love being pregnant and being a mom but I realize that at 39 years old my body is done and it is making sure that I know I am done. I am definitely more exhausted with this pregnancy than I have ever been with my others, the aches and pains are a little bit harder on me.
So for the last few weeks I have left, I am going to enjoy every second. When our little guy arrives I will be treating every little with smile as they will be my last ones but I can safely say I’m finally ok with that. My biological clock has finally stopped ticking and my family will be complete. The one thing I am super excited about is having my last little one born right here, at home. I am looking forward to having my family all around for his birth with the help of midwives and a wonderful doula from Bebo Mia to help with the birth. I hope that everything goes the way I hope and that our new baby will take his first breathe surrounded my his family in the comfort of my own home. The final weeks are upon me and I am going to enjoy each and every second of them.
I can’t wait to share all of the great brands and products that are joining my list of Baby and Momma Must Haves, the new series of posts that will follow after his birth. It’s an exciting time around here and I can’t wait to share it all with you.
