To reiterate the title, I absolutely love being pregnant. As I type this our little girl is moving and grooving in my belly, it truly is the most beautiful and comforting feeling. I don’t know if she is happy that she finally isn’t pushed up against a desk at work … I don’t know if she is grooving because she liked the grilled cheese sandwich and apple I had for dinner … I don’t know if she is pissed off because she – well, because she is a girl and sometimes we just have our moments. BUT she is moving, and that means she is healthy. That is all hubby and I can ask for.
I have had a fabulous pregnancy so far. Nearly 30 weeks in and other than an expanding belly and some back aches here and there, I feel no different than I did prior to being pregnant. (Other than the moving creature inside me mentioned above…) I still work out at least five days a week – albeit a little less intense, but still staying as active as I feel I can handle. I never had morning sickness, I have no stretch marks, I haven’t swollen up, and I sleep great at night. And yes, I am knocking on wood right now. ;-) I am not sure why I have been so blessed, and yes, I do realize how incredibly blessed I am, but I think I can thank genetics for feeling so great. My mom said the best she ever felt was when she was pregnant with me and I feel as though I am on a similar path. I can only hope that when our daughter is pregnant – if she decides to have children – that she feels this great.
All this being said, who knows what is in store for me these last 10 weeks, but I do know that this has been an amazing experience so far. I just have to make sure that I don’t think too long and hard about where she has to come out of, because the thought of her coming out of THERE, is still a bit unsettling. We will just have to cross that bridge when we come to it. If it wasn’t for the fact that we can’t wait to see her face, I would probably just try to keep her in there forever…
For all you moms and soon-to-be moms, what was your best part about your pregnancy experience? And for those of you who are trying, what are you most looking forward to?
