This post is just beyond precious…and you are the cutest pregnant mommy in the whole universe. And I love how you said you are done but choosing to make a choice to rejoice (as we tell our kids). It is hard and so many of us can relate to that last stretch of “let this be over so I can meet this little one.” Great post Amy.
I can very much relate!! especially to feeling like a rotisserie chicken each night…hehe…
I am six weeks away from my due date, and very much ready to meat my little one and NOT be pregnant for a little while…
Thanks so much for sharing your heart! This post made me smile:)
It is a bit hard to know that it really is the end of a chapter but having gone through all of those same feelings and emotions after baby number four, I can tell you that I really appreciated the time I took feeling, enjoying and just basking in being pregnant one last time.
It is fun moving on to the next chapter, too. As the kids grow and you are able to to more things together as a family of six.
Enjoy these last days with your three little ones and know we are all waiting with you to welcome baby number four. 🙂

Beautiful post by a beautiful lady! Blessings to you and your family as you soon enjoy your new precious bundle! Thank you for sharing.
I have to thank you for your trying not to complain. For someone who has lost more babies than I have gotten here and who would give anything to be pregnant again I really appreciate this post.

Hi Amy. That’s a wonderful attitude to have when it’s not always so easy to have. I only had one son so I never had to struggle with taking care of other little ones while being pregnant. I was able to be totally selfish and suffer in bed or on the couch with no one to answer to. Kudos for being a great mom. I just love that photo of you and your daughter. You both look beautiful.
I came by to tell you thank you for posting a wonderful tutorial and for being brilliant last February. I finally got around to making your canvas lined bins. I’m thrilled. I still love yours so much. Anyway I posted it here today, if you’d like to take a peek:
Thanks again Sweetie. Hugs…Tracy 🙂

What a beautiful post, Amy! Soon enough you’ll meet your new little one and the sciatica will be forgotten. This post made me realize that I really am ready to start thinking about the possibility of a #3…just need to convince T. 😉
The rotisserie chicken comment totally cracked me up! I totally remember those loooong nights. Oh, and that photo is so dang cute. I never looked that good pregnant. 🙂

You look just beautiful…I know it’s difficult but for the most amazing reason in the world – congratulations
You are a beautiful pregnant woman! Congratulations.

There’s the belly! It’s not really fair that you are 9 months pregnant and can look that good. Beautiful as always and I loved the way you phrased everything in this post. It captured my feelings exactly – wish I was better with words. Hopefully you have that baby SOON! XOXO
Amy – You look wonderful. I have bookmarked this post. As I am in the beginning weeks (16 along to be exact) of my very first pregnancy, I will look to these words of wisdom when it gets harder near the end. Thank you.
Oh, so sweet ~ hang in there! As a mom that just dropped her oldest off at college I can whole-heartedly agree that each and every moment is precious and irreplaceable. Keep the faith!

PS- dang, i wish I’d looked that fab when I was at the end of my pregnancies. 😉
Yup! I knew that feeling, and I feel for you! The first thing I said after I pushed her out was “I’m not pregnant anymore!!!” However, I am having “phantom” baby kicks in my belly! So sad that she is out! I had to laugh about rolling over in bed. My husband used to have to wake up and roll me out so I could use the bathroom!
You look so beautiful! I can’t wait to meet that new baby of yours!!!
Sweet post and a sweet picture. I can imagine how you are feeling with only a bit more to go before you hold another precious little one in your arms. Hold on to each precious moment as you’ve said for soon enough it all becomes a memory.
All best…and enjoy..
What a sweet post this was! I just gave birth to my 3rd child and can completely identify with your sentiment.

Amy, my youngest is 17 and the only one left at home and just yesterday I told someone I am wanting to go back in time with all my babies at home and that just isn’t going to happen. You are soooo wise to take in every one of these moments. I remember when it was time to stop nursing my last child and I mourned that never would I have that precious time. Enjoy every minute of it!

Thank you so much for this sweet post… it touched my heart.

Amy, you look absolutely adorable. What a wonderful time of life. Best wishes on your new little gift from God!
Sky @ Capital B says
It sure is different with the last, huh? My baby is 2 now and I notice even the way I am mothering him is a bit different just because he is it. Good luck to you in getting your little one here! Thanks for a thoughtful post 🙂 Nice to read, take a deep breath and not tear my hair out after all 🙂
