23 weeks pregnant

here WE are at 23 weeks pregnant with baby #4

It's funny because I feel like most moms say that after baby #1 each pregnancy goes by so fast. Not with me. I feel like I've been pregnant forever. I think the 4 months of continual vomiting and not being able to eat totally took it out of me. I have to say that some of the other un-enjoyable side effects are creeping up on me too. My back has been killing me and although I'm so sleepy and nodding off all day, I can't manage to fall asleep at night...and of course, I'm STILL nauseous.
My secret hopes for a calm mellow child might be out the window too. This little boy moves ALL the time. I swear I one day a foot is going to pop out of my butt! haha!!

We are definitely happy and done after this baby. BUT the thought of never going through labor and having a newborn again after this makes me sad. Does every mom go through this? or are most moms happy they don't have to go through this anymore?! I know I am strange as I love labor day so much. Even through the pain, the excitement and anticipation... the marvel of giving birth always amazes me. Its a feeling that cannot be compared to anything else in the world.
So even through the daily discomforts, I'm trying to enjoy each crampy, need to pee, sore, moody moment. With that said, my pants are getting tighter...I need to find some more clothing options~
