11 Ways To Make Your Last Pregnancy Extra Special

By Devan McGuinness |

My baby fever is still in full swing and I have been thinking a lot about what to do when/if I get pregnant again. I know that my next child will be my last one — my last full-term pregnancy, my last time being in labor, so I have been thinking a lot about how to soak it all in. I swear if someone made a device that allowed me to pop on a pillow and feel pregnant (the baby moving especially) they would be a rich person. I love feeling and being pregnant — despite the fact my pregnancies are not exactly easy. It will be sad to close the chapter on it all.

That said, since it’s not all over for me yet and I know that this next one will be the last one (if it happens), I want to make sure I do everything on my “being pregnant bucket list”. The things I wish I had done in previous pregnancies, the memories I want to make sure stay with me and since i’ve been around the ‘pregnant block’ a few times, I want to make sure I pull from all those experiences and make the next one as ‘me’ and ‘awesome’ as can be.

    I’m pregnant with my second, and this will be it for us. I’m trying to enjoy every second, and not wish it along too quickly.
