Today marked another first. A woman at the pool asked me if I was sporting a baby bump.
It was so fun to be able to respond with a resounding “Yes!”
This really is so surreal. Short of our gut-wrenching losses and my surgery, I have been very blessed with easy pregnancies – no morning sickness or anything (some foods just don’t appeal to me at times and though, not often, I’ll randomly get a bout of tiredness). So with no other symptoms, and our child isn’t big enough to feel yet, the only “proof” I have is my growing belly which is finally starting to look pregnant.
I can’t believe it’s finally my turn.
I have always wanted kids and I have seen so many other women pregnant and often wondered what I would look like with a growing belly and what it would be like feeling our child move in me. And I’m finally experiencing that (well, at least the growing belly part : ). I have our child growing inside of me. So crazy!! I’m so blessed.
Thank you lady at the pool….
PS. Less than 3 weeks until we have our anomaly & gender scan! Eek!
