I don't know about anyone else but I'm finding these last few weeks of pregnancy quite hard, I can't remember it being as bad the last few times but then maybe the memories have faded lol.
It could be because it's baby number 5 and looking after 4 others under 8 can takes its toll especially when you're homeschooling. I'm being quite relaxed and not putting myself under too much pressure to keep up the schoolwork, we're being quite flexible and things depend on how I'm feeling though sometimes I do feel like I let things slide a little too much.
To compromise I'm trying to think of independent fun things they can do which involves unofficial learning, like crafts, and computer games and playing games etc but I'm not always very good at thinking things and then we just get it set up and the arguments start or some interruption lol.
Today they wanted to play "church" so out came the bibles and we did some reading singing and praying - which was great for the first ten minutes or so before we started arguing over who was doing what :-(
Oh well I just keep telling myself that sooner or later labour will start and we'll have another beautiful blessing in our family and be able to find a new "normal" though the thought of labour at the moment either excites or scares me lol depending on how I'm feeling - made my midwife laugh this week when I told her that sometimes I think "Oh no I don't want to do this" lol.
