Last Baby....

Who else is having their very last baby this pregnancy? How are you feeling about it?

Because I'm in the throws of it I'm not going to miss being pregnant ever again, lol. That might change in a couple years. Blum 3 The thing that makes me most sad is that I will be getting rid of stuff now. Like maternity clothes, baby gear. If this baby is a boy, I have to immediately deal with SIX totes of girl clothes! Not only that but as baby out grows thing, I will be selling them for good. That sort of has the hoarder in me a little sad!

How are you feeling about things?

I was thinking about this the other day. IDK if this is our last. DH says it is, but I'm not 100%.

I think about the fact that it could be my last pregnancy and I'm sad, not for the pregnancy part, but for the baby part.

I think 2 is lovely and a perfect size especially since I work, but part of me really wants 3. I'm get sad thinking it might be my last baby.

I am very happy with the idea of 3 kiddos and like you Heather I have no desire to ever be pregnant again! Overall, I'm feeling really good about this being our last baby. I'm really looking forward to moving on to the stage of raising our family and no longer thinking about or envisioning what our family with become as far as adding to it. I'm sure as we move past each stage I'll be a little sad to know that part of our life is over forever but I don't see me longing to have anymore babies after this. Smile

Even though I get super uncomfortable towards the end of pregnancy, I KNOW I will always miss the belly. Whenever I am NOT pregnant, I see women with bellies and want one so badly. I just love the belly Smile

But this is the last one. In some ways it makes me sad, and in some ways it is exciting - just think, in about 2 years, I won't have ANY kids waking me up in the middle of the night regularly! As my kids all continue to grow up together, we can move away from the "baby" stage, having to schedule life around naptimes, buying diapers......all of those things will be great to leave behind! But I will miss the snuggliness of a newborn, and the way they smell......so i will try to enjoy it as much as I can this time!

I am actually excited to sell all my maternity clothes LOL. And getting rid of the baby gear as we no longer use it will be nice simply because of the storage space we will gain back!!

This is likely our last, and for the first time ever - I AM SO READY TO BE DONE with pregnancy. I will be Totally fine never being pregnant again. I also don't have a problem getting rid of stuff in general, so baby stuff is really not a big deal. In fact, I've gotten rid of all maternity and baby items each time (pretty much) after all of my later babies. We always get the few things that we need ultra cheap at garage sales etc. and we just don't have space to hold onto it. That being said. I MIGHT be a little bit sad to never have a newborn again, but really at this point, I'm ready to move on. I think most people after 6 kids would likely feel the same though, lol. Smile

I am very, very, very much at peace with this being my last pregnancy. I've never really struggled with them growing out of the baby stages. I did really have a hard time with each turning five this baby was conceived within 10 days of Lucas turning five. Although unintentional, I think there was a connection!).

I will be fine until this one is five. When we are in our last season of tball Aand things like that, I will be very sad. But that's far away and at that point my kids with be 13, 11 and 5 so I won't be starting over! Smile

Surprising how many of us are on our last baby on this board!

I'm not sad at all to be done with the baby stage after this. I'm excited to be having another tiny baby and doing this all one more time, but so done with being pregnant and then "another pregnancy" worth of BFing. I'm really looking forward to getting my body back in shape and FINALLY it staying that way Wink But I've already started sorting my girl clothes (won't sell them/give away until this boy is here and definitely has a penis! lol) and that totally bums me out. Then my DD has a super dramatic day like yesterday and I think maybe I wasn't meant to be a mom to more than one girl anyway Lol

On the weekend I spent some time with my cousins and their kids who are 10, 9 and 6. I have to say, I'm pretty excited for that stage. They could actually get things done on their own and listened more than my 3 year old. I guess that's what I'm laying the foundation for now. LOL.

We love to travel and so it'll be nice when the kids get older because they will be easier to take with us AND easier to leave behind. Blum 3

i say this is my last one but im not getting my tubes tied.. i dont want to make it a permanent decision just yet. DH is not on the same boat as me he would like more kids so who know maybe down the road i'll change my mind but i doubt it.. 2 is more than enough
