I can't believe I only have 7 weeks left of this pregnancy. The last few weeks I have had tons of Braxton Hicks, I won't be surprised if this one comes early. This pregnancy has not been easy. I don't mean to complain, I love being able to be pregnant, but I don't know if it is being over 30, or just having this be my 5th, but I am tired, I hurt like crazy, and I am surprised my water hasn't broken with how much pain I have been in with these crazy braxton hicks. My round ligament kills me every time I roll over in bed, and at night I walk around like an old lady with back problems because my sciatic is so sore. Even my husband gives me a look of concern like "we are not having any more kids ever because of how much pain you are in", which is kind of uncommon for him. Not that he isn't caring he just thinks it's normal. But this one has done me in and unless God himself tells me we are supposed to have another child, I feel very good being done. Yeah 5 is good for us!
As I was holding my baby the other day...you know Little Mister who is only 20 months old, I started to realize how different having this baby will be than any other baby. MY BABY IS STILL A BABY!! I usually have my kids 2 1/2- 3 1/2 years apart, they are potty trained, can talk, don't drink out of a bottle, don't suck on a binki and are out of the crib. Little Mister is not ready for any of that, and in less than 7 weeks I will have another one. He is completely addicted to his "Ginki", bottle, blanket, crib (which I don't mind) and having me hold him, and I don't really want to take any of that away. We have tried this weeks to restrict his binki time to bed time, but he begs for it all day long :(. Oh well!
Ready or not, he is going to be forced into sharing me and being a big brother. If any of you crazy (I mean this in a nice way) moms that have had kids close together have any advise for me I would LOVE it! Thanks in advance, just PLEASE leave me a comment because any help with help!
