Having The Last Baby

So I’ve been thinking about this in quiet moments I have to myself, and asking myself how this is really sitting with me. I’m having my last baby. Ever. There will be no more pregnancy tests, birth preparations and bringing home a new member of the family after this one. It’s the last time. And that means the last time for many things.

Just writing that makes me feel a little bit sad and nostalgic, it’s dawning on me that all the firsts that this new little babe will have, will be my lasts. There was an article circulating Facebook a little while ago about all the little things that your baby does as they grow, will one day stop but you won’t know it was the last time until you realise a while later that they don’t do that or need you for that anymore. So true.

I can honestly say though that I feel like I’m ready for this to be my last. My body is telling me that this is pushing the limit. I’m fit and well, but this pregnancy so far feels that little bit harder. And I don’t have that feeling of ‘yeah I could do this again.’ like I’ve had after each of my other babies. My body will be happy for this to be the last pregnancy and birth.

It’s just different this time, which is a bit weird because it also feels completely foreign to me to not have those familiar feelings.

Despite all the nostalgia, I just feel done. So I’m just going to try and make the most of al the little moment, so when I look back on the baby days I can be happy that I was there for all the lasts.

  1. Oh Kelly I don’t know how you do it all, you are a great mother!

    Funny thing I always though I would have more than 2. My first pregnancy was a dream, second one was tough then my first child was originally diagnosed with ssli (specific speech language disorder) & just recently they confirmed asd. So that’s me done , I’m glad i have the two of them as they are great buddies but it’s hard work ……. take care & wishing you & your family well x

    1. Aww thanks Maura, that’s so lovely of you to say. I don’t know how I do it either sometimes!
      I can’t imagine how hard it must be dealing with asd, I bet you are doing an amazing job! And how lovely they have each other and are good mates.
      Much love to you and your family xx
