I can’t sleep. I get maybe 4 to 5 hours a night. My lower right back and right hip ache. I have shortness of breath. My right ankle and toes swell up. I walk slower.
I feel like I swallowed a bowling ball.
My tummy is itchy. I get crazy hungry sometimes along with little bouts of heartburn. There’s a whole list of foods I’m not allowed to eat.
I have to wear a panty liner, because I leak every time I sneeze or cough. I’ve had crazy constipation where my hooha swelled up at one point. My boobs are huge and my nipples have gotten bigger and darker.
I’m more sensitive causing me to cry about silly things. I have a hard time bending over. I run my tummy into things, like my husband. I’ve peed on my bathroom rug while throwing up.
And here’s the most shocking thing…. I’m grateful for it all.
I’m constantly reminded that I’m growing a life inside me as a result of an intimate loving moment with my husband. How truly amazing is that?
I’m able to be in the moment, feeling love and gratitude and beautiful. I’m walking through fear and letting go. Everything I’m going through physically is more than worth what I’m receiving emotionally.
I’m creating life.
thank you, Jaime. what a beautifful glimpse into the ultimate creation.
