Eek! I can’t believe baby girl will be here any day now! I’m feeling much more relaxed this time around and happy for her to come whenever she decides. Things are certainly different the second time around and I left my hospital bag packing quite a bit more last minute than I did when I was pregnant with my first.

Motherhood is truly amazing and the most important role you will have in your life. But it’s also not all rainbows and butterflies. It’s really really H A R D, especially during that 4th trimester.
