One word to describe this pregnancy.
After the troubles we have had trying to have a 3rd baby, all I can do is savor this time.
Knowing it is my last time being pregnant...ever. I will just savor each moment.
I feel so lucky and blessed.
Believe me, I am not one of those ladies who thinks that my pregnant body is beautiful and I just glow and all is good in the world because I am pregnant.
But no matter, I am savoring the weight, savoring the heartburn, savoring the nightly leg cramps that keep me up ALL night. Savoring the gas, savoring the intense need for a nap all day, savoring the time it will take me to run off the weight after baby.
Savoring the girls' awe as they rub my belly and wait to feel a baby kick. Savoring their intense anticipation to meet their sister in about 8 weeks.
I am not a lucky person...I have never won a contest or had my name drawn for a prize. I have never won in Vegas, or even the school cakewalk for that matter.
Gladly now, I have traded in that 40 years of bad luck, oh and I will trade in my 40 more as I realize this lottery that I have won.
I am forever lucky now with this precious gift that I am savoring.
