Before you were born I loved you
Before you were here an hour I would die for you
This is the miracle of Mother’s Love.
Pregnancy is the most life changing adventure I can think of. From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I was head over heels in love with a child I could only imagine. It still amazes me how much love I immediately had built up for the baby, how excited two pink lines can make you, and how terrified at the same time.
After going through two pregnancies, I envy those who say they love being pregnant and relish in their state. Don’t get me wrong, I was thrilled to be expecting, both times. I was just too darn uncomfortable to enjoy the baby growing process.
Of course I found joy in many things. Any pregnant mama will tell you how fabulous it is to be past the stage of “Is she pregnant, or just flabby and bloated”. Starting to show was very exciting for me both times. Wearing maternity clothes for the first time goes along with that and was also super exciting. The excitement of that faded quickly for me in my last pregnancy, since they do not make maternity clothing to fit 30 week pregnant twin mamas who are very petite sans the belly.
My very favorite part of my pregnancies was when my baby/babies started to kick and wiggle. It makes it so real. This little perfect thing that you love with your entire heart and are preparing for is finally making themselves known. (besides making you miserably sick that first trimester).
So, to all you pregnant mamas out there, Happy Mother’s Day! You are amazing to be growing a life inside of you. Kick up your feet and relax. No matter how tired, uncomfortable, or sick you are, try to enjoy a moment and enjoy being pregnant. Meditate on the love you have for your baby. Enjoy your excitement. Before you know it (though I’m sure not soon enough) your little one(s) will be here and a whole new and fabulous life while begin.
I contact the author and she was kind enough to agree to give away a copy of her book to one lucky Once Upon a Baby reader.
