This might be totally irrational, but I'm feeling kind of sad that I'm almost done being pregnant! I know that the best times are to come and having babe in my arms will be the best thing ever. But at the same time, as long as he/she is inside me, I know that my child is safe, happy and comfortable. I don't have to worry about anything - my biggest responsibility when it comes to taking care of my baby is eating.
Even though the first trimester nausea sucked and the third trimester exhaustion is, well, exhausting, I like being pregnant. Feeling my baby move around is amazing and I love the way my body looks. I love the way my belly looks anyway, not so much the rest of me. But that's all that anyone notices, right?
I think part of this feeling, which will go away soon, is that I haven't had my baby shower yet and thus don't have all the things baby will need. We don't have sheets for it to sleep on, not enough clothing to dress it in, and I really need to buy more diapers and wipes. After the shower, I'll do all that final shopping and I think I'll feel a lot more prepared at that point.
Just wanted to put this out there so I have the memory. Maybe in a month I'll feel completely opposite. Don't get me wrong, I totally want to meet my baby! I want to find out if it's a he or a she, and who it looks like, and how it acts. It's just bittersweet, because being pregnant is easy and fun, and my life is about to change a whole lot.
