Well baby Felix is almost here…We’re at day 268 (38 weeks, 2 days) and it feels like FOREVER. As much as I am trying to cherish these last few moments I am really so excited to meet my baby and to no longer be pregnant.
I did enjoy an over two hour nap yesterday- I felt so luxurious- I know that will be gone VERY shortly. I am getting to know my little man from the inside, I am loving feeling him respond to my voice, to my partner and my son’s voices and touch. I will definitely miss that.Both myself and my baby daddy David love it when I’m pregnant and he is hoping for one more pregnancy.
Everyone asks when they find out it is another boy if we’ll be trying for a girl. I’m torn how I feel about this question. On the one hand I think it’s an asshole implication that somehow my two boys aren’t very much desired and enough all on their own. On the other hand, for me personally it is a valid question as I’ve mentioned before adoption is important to me, so I do like the opportunity to voice my feelings on the matter. Also I have always wanted a girl as well. I’ve told David (who says he does not want more than three children) that we MUST adopt a girl one day. I hope we can and will one day. Until then, I will focus all my love and maternal energy on my two wonderful little boys.
So I am appreciating not only this beautiful honeymoon-pre-endless-sleeplessness period free of potential breastfeeding and sibling rivalry/divided attention issues…but also these last few moments of my very last pregnancy.
Luckily for me I have a wonderful and talented friend whom I helped launch a photography business who takes AMAZING photos of myself and my family: Michelle of Michannstudio who I cannot recommend highly enough. She was able to squeeze me into her very busy December schedule to help capture these beautiful last few moments.
