I'm Not Gonna Lie...

I am scheduled to be induced tomorrow morning and I'm not gonna lie - I'm getting a little nervous. Not so much for the actual labor/birth, but because of all the changes that are about to come to our little family. I'm nervous about how Evan and Isabella will adjust and how having a new baby will change their "normal" schedule.

I'm also a little sad. Sad that this is the last full day that I will ever be pregnant. I feel like this pregnancy went by entirely too fast even though I tried to enjoy every moment. I'm trying my best to remember what these kicks and turns feel like - I know I will miss it.

I'm also so excited to "meet" our little caboose and start our lives as a family of 5. Even though its hard for me to understand how much she's about to change our lives, I know I'll soon be wondering how we ever lived without her. I remember feeling this way with Isabella and now its so hard for me to imagine a life without her in it.

I simply have all of these different emotions going at once. Today I will be running a few errands while Evan is in school so that our house is stocked with everything we'll need for a week or so. It is supposed to be pretty so I think we'll take the kids to the park and make sure they get plenty of attention.  Tonight I will do some last minute deep cleaning so that we will come home to a clean house.

  Pin It!

Mama to 4 said...

Sending positive thoughts your way for a smooth delivery. Good thinking on getting the house cleaned and stocked.

Andrea said...

Good luck to you! The waiting is the hardest part! (Thank you Tom Petty) Well wishes your way for a speedy delivery!

Sarah said...

This is exactly how I felt when I went in to have baby #4. And he did change us....but looking back, I can't imagine not having him in our lives. It made things a LOT more crazy but the love he gets and gives makes it all worth it. Good luck!

AAwww that is so precious..you definately sound like a Mommy about to have a baby:) I will pray that all will be well and that this little babe will be the biggest blessing ever:)

Blessings!

Karla said...

I miss being pregnant sometimes, knowing that your baby is so close to you.

I hope all goes wonderfully for you.

Saving Our Way said...

Best wishes!!! I totally understand how you feel. Remember though, how instantly you can't remember or imagine life without them. So hopefully the transition to a family of 5 is smooth :-) I am trying to savor those moments of my pregnancy too, as it's my last one as well. Bitter sweet. :-)

Stacey Donaldson said...

I remember being sad at the thought of not being pregnant anymore too. Even with all the changes that happened to my body, I really enjoyed the experience of "co-creating" life :-)

Although things will change, it will be wonderful! Each one of you will grow in ways that would have been impossible had it not been for the caboose coming along. I'm excited for you!

Congratulations and just enjoy every single minute, because just like the pregnancy seemed to go by fast...all three will grow like weeds right before your eyes.

Bells said...

i am already feeling sad about the idea of going through my last pregnancy and i've only just finished my first! there really is nothing in the world like it! still, how lucky are you to have experienced it three times and have a healthy son and daughter to show for it... good luck for tomorrow and adding the third to the bunch :-D x

Thinking of you - keep us posted! :)

Ronalee said...

Congratulations ! Enjoy yourself today as much as you can. Hopefully you will find a few minutes just to relax and reflect on everything.
It is crazy as I write this I feel tears well up in my eyes. I don't know if it is my sadness for you and how you feel, or realization that I will never be pregnant again. My youngest is 22 and I am just now feeling that? Like I said.. crazy.
I hope that you have a great day today and an easy childbirth tomorrow. Looking forward to reading all about your happy little (getting bigger) family.

I remember that day as if it was yesterday. It was 9 months and 2 days ago that I was having those same thoughts. I was so nervous. Now I look back and wonder what I was nervous about :) Hopefully you have a similar experience as me. My older 2 adore their new baby sister and did great with the changes.

Keep us posted! You are in our thoughts!

Jenny said...

I am so excited for you! I can't wait to see pics!

Karen Robison said...

How exciting! I wish I could like pregnancy, but it's horrible for me. I have healthy pregnancies, thank goodness, but I am not healthy for them. Bad morning sickness until 20 weeks, then get every virus under the sun in the 3rd trimester. I'm 33 weeks and can't wait to get done! I understand about life changing though. I actually cried thinking that it wasn't going to just be my little toddler girl pal and I. I know a little bro will be good for her and our family though.
I hope the induction goes smoothly for you! Best wishes.

AP Mommy said...

Will be praying for you - I've tagged you in a post for tomorrow - but I suspect you'll be a tad busy! Congrats!!!

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? said...

Hope it goes well! It is an adjustment..but totally worth it.

Crystal said...

Good luck. I'll be thinking of you. I can't wait to see that little face! <3

Kevin L said...

Well I don't miss being pregnant cause I can't get preggers lol. But I sure I think could somehow understand how truly difficult that would be having a bundle of joy inside.

I wish you the best and hope these memories are long long lasting.

Kevin :)

Will be praying for you, tomorrow!

Deb Dorrington said...

Thinking of you and sending happy thoughts your way. Imagine a new baby tomorrow for your wonderful family..:)

alissa apel said...

I totally understand what you are talking about with everything. It will be exciting. The kids may think things are great, or may have trouble adjusting. They will adjust though. Such a great experience caring a growing life around! I loved it, even with the issues.

Cher said...

I had a scheduled induction with our third child this past June and I was nervous too! Also sad about being not being pregnant any more. Good luck!

Jan at J4C Home said...

I remember these exact thoughts when I had my last baby. I'll pray for a healthy delivery for you and anxiously wait for photos of the new baby.

Let us know how it goes.

Oh, and welcome to the Family Of Five Club.

Christie - The Fiction Enthusiast said...

I felt the same way before #3 arrived. With the first two I wanted it over ASAP, but I was content with #3 & it was over so fast.

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow!

AnnaZed said...

Oh my goodness! I can't believe that I only discovered your blog today. Good luck, I hope everything goes just as you hoped and even better.

Veronica @ Germlisch said...

You should be HAPPY that you *know* you have the end in sight! Rather, at your fingertips.
I must say that I am completely JEALOUS because I really want mine to come on it's DUE date (tomorrow), and I just don't see it happening. Boo. :(

I wish you all the best with the delivery!

Jackie said...

Will be think of you! Good luck!

burgmom said...

I thought today was the day. Good Luck! I'll be thinking about you and your family today.

Leslie G said...

Oh how I know what you are feeling. I have had my little lady here for a little over a month now and can not imagine not having her here but oh how I miss feeling her move around. I still feel cheated that she was taken a month early. And in saying that I look down at my beautiful little girl sitting in my lap and life is great. Enjoy this day as a family of four and congrats on your soon to be wonderful family of five.

E @ Pregnancy Pool said...

Congratulations on the upcoming arrival. I remember that the anticipation just waiting was such a hard feeling!
