I am 37 weeks pregnant and besides being exhausted from looking after our 4 and 3 year old girls, I am a little anxious about the pending delivery of our next child. I’m not at all concerned about delivery – I have always really enjoyed the experience and look forward to it this time. I am anxious as I know this will likely be our last child. It’s such a bitter sweet time. Children were never really on my radar but once I met my husband and we had our first child something changed within me and my priorities and dreams changed somewhat. If I’d met my husband five to ten years earlier perhaps we’d have the time and means to have a fourth child, but sadly I think we’ll have to call it stumps at three. So, I will enjoy these last few weeks of being able to feel my child wiggle around inside me and all the extra attention pregnant ladies receive from loved ones and total strangers. I can’t wait to find out who my youngest child is, though I don’t wish these final weeks and days to go too quickly.

  • storys are nice


  • That would be sad in some ways knowing this is the last for all those experiences. I’m wondering how you know when you’re done? I’ve only got one but I’m already unsure how many kids will be good for me, my husband and our family! That ‘decision’ sounds tough (although accidents do happen:P)


  • the story is exellent


  • For me, it was giving up breast feeding that I felt the saddest.


  • Oh, I know. I longed to enjoy the last few weeks of my final pregnancy, but I was also so keen to meet my girl!
