my last pregnancy

Here we are - 38 weeks and counting!  I can't believe I am so near the end of this second pregnancy journey.  It has been a wonderful experience carrying this baby and I absolutely cannot wait to meet him or her!  I have been fortunate to have had two very good pregnancies and it's sometimes hard for me to grasp that this will likely be my last one.  I decided to ask a friend to take a few photos of my last baby bump now that we are so near the end.  I'm excited to have these pictures to remember this special time in my life and I can't wait to share them with my children someday.  I'm one of those women who genuinely enjoys being pregnant, even in those moments when my ribs feel bruised, I get heartburn, or I can barely put my socks on! ;)  I still feel very healthy and strong and really do enjoy this time.
One of the best parts of this pregnancy is how relaxing it has been.  Being home with my son during this time has truly been a joy and is such a stark contrast from the anxiety I felt before and after my first was born.  I feel ready (as ready as I can be I guess) to be a mother of two and am very much looking forward to the fun, challenging, and rewarding times that lie ahead.  Edwin has been very sweet and genuinely seems excited to meet this new baby.  He is 100% convinced that it's going to be a little sister, so I hope he's not too disappointed if a little brother comes along!  We are almost set on names...nothing like waiting until the last minute, right?!
These next couple of weeks will be spent enjoying this beautiful spring weather we are having, going for walks in the sunshine, and doing last minute preparation at home while we wait for baby to arrive.  I have truly cherished this time as a pregnant mama, but am also looking forward to those sweet baby snuggles and finding a new rhythm for my family of 4.  Can't wait to meet you baby!
