Your last child? :)

Oh, i never wanna close up the baby shop, but I must retire it at some point.

My husband & I are starting a journey to hopefully concive our 4 th child, also known as our last child. With that being said, I've sat back & tried to remember each of my pregnancies, stuff mainly that I could control that I enjoyed or didn't get the chance to experience!

My list: a natural birth, not finding out the gender OR what about gender revel parties(those seem fun!) not complaining so much, enjoying the kicks! Getting a 3D u/s eating better! Breast feeding (I've never done!) professional pictures! & well enjoying the pregnacy!!! :)

So! Is there anything you wish you would've done diffrent about your last pregnacy ladies? & if you wouldn't mind giving me the pros & cons of my list above, I love hearing from actual people!. & if there's anything you recommend, please feel free to help add to my list! :)

Thanks ladies! -may you all have a wonderful day! -

    Honestly... The only thing I would have done different is actually walked out of the hospital when I threatened too... they kept saying "She thinks she's in labor" (contractions were five minutes apart, 2 minutes long).. No It's my 4th full term birth, I know when I'm in labor. If I had left even the third time I threatened, I wouldn't have had to go on blood pressure medicine that night.

    I would have said, "I also think I'm pregnant...oh, wait, I am!" Golly, it is your body. Braxton Hicks is one thing but you ought to know when you are ready to deliver.

    LOL I wasn't thinking about snarky comebacks. :D Too busy trying not to yell at the on call midwife with no sense.

      I wish I stuck with my pregnancy journal. It made it to the third trimester, maybe? I plan on doing one with this one, too. Oh, and stick to exercising and dieting (that is safe during pregnancy). I ate healthy with my son but where I was working a lot, exercise was minimal, if not at all. Also, I am going to try to do a natural birth, so hopefully this one will be less than 8 lbs. Also, this is my last (biological) one as well. We will adopt after this one is older though.
