Last week of pregnancy

This will be my last week of being pregnant forever. After next Monday, I don't have to worry about maternity clothes, swollen feet or heartburn that lasts days ever again! I'll never have the lingering question we want to have another kid, when should we have him/her, etc. Our family is complete and this momma is officially closing up shop for good!

It's kind of a bittersweet though. On one hand I'm going to miss all the amazing wonders of carrying my child around for 9+ months, on the other it'll be awesome to never have to take birth control pills or worry about getting pregnant ever again!

I'm going to cherish the memories of feeling Grady dance around in my stomach constantly and of Lily waking me up in the middle of the night making me laugh because she has the hiccups.

I'll try not to remember being nauseous 24/7 and the horrible allergic reaction I had to my prenatal vitamins while carrying Grady or the bad headaches and breathing issues I had with Lily that kinda went away in the 8th month.

All I can do now is enjoy these last 7 days, prepare myself for the sleepless nights that are right around the corner and get ready for the good times that these two angels will bring!
