Talk about homestretch, this is no joke. I am 37 weeks and 2 days pregnant and I am so over it. As a matter of fact, I have been over it since I was like 5 months pregnant. Everyone for some reason thinks the second pregnancy is easier because you’ve been through it already but it’s quite the opposite, at least for me it is. I mean your body is all stretched out already but everything hurts more. Your back hurts more, the stretching and pulling of your muscles, not to mention if it’s your second you also have a toddler most likely running around your house.
Remember all the naps you used to take with your first pregnancy? Well that doesn’t happen the second time, plus you’re chasing your toddler all over the place, picking up toys, bending over constantly, changing diapers, putting on shoes and pants, picking up the binky 50xs a day! It never ends. EVER. And now the baby is almost here and you’re already a tired mom and that tired is about to get REAL tired. At least I am more mentally prepared for a newborn than I was for the first. The first time you think its going to be easy right? I mean how hard can it be? And then your sleep deprived for weeks and months with a colic baby, talk about wake up call! This time I know better.
Goodbye sleep. It was nice having you back for a little. I already feel you dwindling away with my pregnancy insomnia so I am prepared to have you leave for another year. Hope you come back sooner than later.
Love you, Tired Mom.
Well, on that note I can’t wait to have my home birth! Super excited actually! 🙂 I haven’t been that great about keeping you all up to date one the whole pregnancy this time since mom life equals busy life. But I’ll keep you all posted. And of course I’ll share my birth story later on.
Meanwhile, we took some cool pictures in a milk bath, thanks to my wonderful husband <3 hope you like them! Xoxo!
