This time it is different. I am not at all ready to be done being pregnant. I don't want this baby to come early. I am cherishing this little one being in my tummy. I am enjoying taking it a little easier and having my other children be able to put their hands on my tummy to feel the baby move. I love hearing my 3 year old ask, "Is the baby moving? Is she sleeping?". Oh my, it is a precious time.
I am pretty sure this will probably, most likely be my last pregnancy. And it has been three years since my last one. I think I am slightly older and wiser and I don't wish these days away because they are so few. I know it can be miserable towards the end of pregnancy and yes, I do have heartburn and yes I have to pee 15 times a night but I still am more content than I have ever been with all my other pregnancies. I am sure it is a prayer answered. I am sure it is a God-given calmness and peace.
Whatever it is I will take it gladly. I will be thankful for the time I have left and when this time is over I will be utterly amazed that once again, God has blessed us with a precious little one that we have the privilege of raising.
