As my pregnancy is coming to an end (6 more weeks to go!), it has been making me wonder if this is the last time that I will ever experience all of this: the baby kicking, moving, flipping… My pregnancy with PP was complicated. There were concerns about placenta previa, low amniotic fluid and finally (and the thing that caused me to have an induction), poor fetal growth. Needless to say, every doctor appointment I went to was followed by a trip to the hospital for another ultrasound. (I think this is why PP loves having her picture taken!)
With this pregnancy, everything has been “normal.” I haven’t had many ultrasounds (one at 6 weeks to check viability and another one at 20 weeks). Because I think I was having ultrasound withdraw (and I wanted to do something special to document this pregnancy), I had the 3D/4D ultrasound at 28 weeks.
Also with this pregnancy, I was really sick from weeks 5-10 but felt completely fine after that. Compared to my first pregnancy, this one is a “breeze.” Which made me think to myself, will this be the last time that I carry a child??? My husband thinks it is, but I have my doubts (don’t tell him I said that).
But, talk to me after labor and delivery and in 3 years when I am refereeing fights between my two girls….
