If I had my way, I would have it so that biologically, it would take the full 9 months for a woman’s first pregnancy and all subsequent ones would only take about 3 months. I think most women would agree that the first go around, you really need all of that time to prepare mentally and emotionally. I mean, I could’ve used another couple of months even. First I was terrified of the childbirth experience. Plus, I so loved all of the pregnant girl attention!
This time, however, I know a lot more of what to expect and I’m obsessing over much less. The words “Get a lot of rest now” never come out of anyone’s mouth because they all know that nobody let’s me get enough rest anymore.
Remember all of those fears I had in the beginning? (See my first blog post). They are still there. Getting ready for an expanding family is never easy. But I’ll tell you this: I’m ready to get this party started already!!!
