Last day of pregnancy

Today is my last day of pregnancy and I am so, so excited to meet our baby tomorrow morning! This pregnancy dragged in the beginning but the last 6 weeks or so have flown by. I can’t believe we’re finally at this point. The kids are getting more excited although Cas and Elin don’t fully comprehend, Siri does for the most part. I’m looking forward to getting my energy back. These last few weeks have been rough, physically and emotionally. I am so grateful to Eric for supporting me and just being truly amazing. He takes care of things before I have a chance to ask. He understands when I need to just put my feet up. He gets me and us and I just love him so much. He is the rock of our family. 

I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!


Final days of pregnancy

The baby will be here in 4 days! Eric and I keep saying how excited we are; it feels so different this time around. It feels like I’ve been pregnant for so long and now the day is finally approaching! This will be the last baby and although I’m so uncomfortable, tired, irritable, you name it! – I’m trying my best to savor these last few days of carrying a baby with me. Strangers are always surprised when they ask if this is my first and I say no, it’s the fourth. At times I can’t believe we did it and that it’s all happened so fast. Having 4 kids in 5 years wasn’t what I’d planned! I’m looking forward to bringing the baby home to the kids. Having our little family is just the most wonderful thing. I feel so fortunate every day. I can’t wait to find out if this baby is a boy or a girl and see what he or she looks like. I can’t wait to hold him or her and watch another baby grow and be a part of our family. It’s so awesome to think of what our future will be. We have so many amazing family memories to be made.
