I love pregnancy
Posted November 29, 2014on:
Hubby asked me, despite everything that has been going on, if I still love being pregnant. Here’s my answer:
I love being pregnant. I love feeling the baby move around. I love knowing that I’m not alone at the moment, that there is always someone with me, even when I’m up at night while all of you are asleep. I love trying to figure out what body part is poking out of my tummy. I love trying to figure out what kind of personality this little person in me is going to have based on her movements and how she interacts when I rub my belly. I love imagining what she’s going to look like when she comes out.
I don’t like the constant aches and pains. I really don’t like the first trimester of constant nausea. I really don’t like the third trimester of constant discomfort. I don’t like that I waddle. I don’t like that I gain too much weight during each pregnancy. I don’t like that this pregnancy had way too many complications. I don’t like being confined to a wheelchair when we go places. I don’t like that I’m not allowed to do too much stuff. I don’t like the sore abdomen muscles. I don’t like the sore groin muscles. I don’t like it has to hurt to give birth. I don’t like the healing process after giving birth. I don’t like, even though labor is practically a routine thing, that there is always a chance of complication. I don’t like that I get so irritated so quickly when my hormones go all haywire.
Hubby says that it seems that the dislikes outnumber the likes.
While it may seem so, the truth of the matter is, I really do love being pregnant and all those dislikes are nothing comparent to the feeling of holding my sweet newborn when all is said and done.
