I'm unhappy to report that while I'm super exhausted, I have developed insomnia which I never had with any other the other 3 pregnancies. Lying in bed at night, tossing and turning is no fun, and add a very pregnant belly and not being able to get really comfortable and I'm not the happiest at night :(
Praying that this soon goes away. I think I've had it the last couple of nights because I'm starting to realize how much our lives are going to change when our little guy is born.
This time, not only do I have another baby making 4, I also don't get a break from that many kiddos by having one or two in school. Clearly this is my own choice/fault as we're homeschooling, but add to that that Lucas is still just 2 and not big enough to handle himself long distances walking yet (his little legs are just too short) so anytime I want to take the train, I'm still unsure how I'm going to do that :) have me wondering what I'll do with just 2 arms and hands.
All these little things had me up way too late last night, worrying...but when I take a step back, I'm confident we'll figure out a way to add one more to the pack and it will seem like "old hat" soon enough. Here's hoping I can convince myself of that late at night when all is quiet except my brain! :)
Other than that, and after the first 20 weeks or so when I felt so sick, this has been one of the easiest pregnancies! He's super super busy all the time, but I'm enjoying all those movements and kicks knowing that this feeling is something so sweet and fleeting.
The kids are really getting excited and Nico told me yesterday that my belly will just keep getting fuller and fuller of water and then his baby brother will just pop out! I just love how their little minds work and what makes complete and perfect sense to them in their little worlds! :) Not sure that would be any messier than the real way of having a baby! :)
Most of all, I cannot wait to snuggle this little one close and soak up that newborn period that seems to end all too quickly. And, I cannot wait to meet this little guy and see what he's like and how he'll to this crazy, loud family of ours!
