The Third Times A Charm?!
Officially I am here to warn Moms like me, of the third pregnancy. With your first pregnancies, you probably got tired of people touching your belly out of no where. When you walked by strangers, it was like they were sucked in by your pregnancy glow, forced to smile at you, in turn making you imagine how sweet having your new baby will be. Feeling beautiful, almost magical, feeling all the movements and closeness with your new baby to be.
You see, last time, I basically did it on my own. In this previous post called, The Worst year of My Life, you can read all about it. Though by the title, I am sure you can understand, I wouldn't want to relive that year, nor have another very stress filled first year raising a baby. In other words, I would really like to keep my hair from falling out this time, ya know?
Don't hear me wrong, we prayed for this baby. We tried hard for this baby. We worked for it! I am just wanting that moment to come when all the pushing, or what if's about how the baby is going to be born, will be over. Moving on to seeing his face, falling in love in an instant, and not caring about how it is all gonna work out. Looking forward to not being able to imagine my life without this little special person. Then the same thing happening for each of my family. To the feeling of loving my husband so very much because of this miracle we created. To be in wonder of how amazing God is to do this whole birth creation thing. How amazing he made our bodies. All we have to do is sit back and let it happen. It is all very overwhelming and amazing.
Therefore, my advice to ladies looking to have a third baby is... Do IT! Just be prepared to be severely under pampered. Some good news? You won't gain nearly as much weight, because you never stop moving and food repulses you! Sounds great, huh?!
Does this post ring true with any of your pregnancies? Am I the only one going through this sort of third pregnancy realization? That everyone treats you like, Oh no big deal, she is just pregnant again. It should be easier since she has been through it before. Or maybe is it because it has been five years since my last one?
Do you have any advice to mommies and fire mommies out there?
