The Last Time

Do you remember life-changing 'last time' moments? Like the last time you slept in your parents house before going off to college or moving out? Or, the last time you hung out with your best friend before s/he moved away?

'Last time' moments are a mixed bag. They can be a huge relief, filled with sorrow, or bittersweet. Whatever the case, though, they are usually memorable. And what do you do when you're cognizant of 'last time' moments as they are happening?

It's the case I'm experiencing now.

I am totally aware that this is most likely, like 99.9% likely, that this will be the last time I will ever be pregnant. It's not that I don't want more children, I would have another in a heartbeat but that would probably require winning the lottery or finding The One within my next few child-bearing years, which are rapidly escaping me.

That said, I'm doing my best or what I can to capture this moment, or experience. It's not that this has been an easy pregnancy, as I discussed in my First Trimester Story, but nonetheless, as most if not all pregnancies are, it's been magical.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, can replace the experience of growing life within your own body and feeling that life move around inside. It's incredible, indescribable, and such a gift, which I am thankful for every day that I carry.

And so, in these last handful of weeks, look out for more maternity photos, as I try to document this experience, this body, this journey, this last time. xo
