Being pregnant with twins was exhausting. Between the diabetes, HUGE stomach, back pain, choleostasis (liver dysfunction that causes insane itching), constant nausea, legs cramps, and on and on I felt like I ran a marathon daily. All that being said I still enjoyed it. I didn't love being pregnant but I can remember thinking, around 30 weeks, that I was just not ready to be done being pregnant. I barely was sleeping and felt crappy but growing those little people was amazing.
This time around things feel different. I guess because I have a crazy life, with two kids full time, three more part time and a million things on my plate. I want to keep this bean cooking as long as I can but I don't think there will be any part of me that wants to stay pregnant. I have heard people say to enjoy a first pregnancy because no matter how tough it is it's the only one you'll have time to enjoy. Boy were those people right.
So, 18 more weeks. In just 18 weeks I'll be done being pregnant (forever!!!). I'll have a new person to care for. And while I'm not looking forward to the sleepless nights and poopy diapers that lie ahead I am definitely looking forward to NOT being pregnant.
