Who said “pregnancy” is the best time of a women’s life never has been pregnant before, for sure.
Is certainly an unique and magical moment, full of joy and sweetness..
But it can also be lived as a huge change in a girl’s life.
These changes include those physical and psychical; unintended changes that often it is hard to accept.
Our hormones go literally crazy.. first you start crying for everything and then suddenly laughing.. crying and laughing.. forever and ever…
Everything around you becomes less important.. it seems to lose interest.
All that matters is you, the mother and the baby in your big belly..
All the people cares about you.. all your friends and parents are super excited about the baby.. even those you barely know want to rub their hands on your belly.
All very nice, for sure.
And then come the questions (always the same) : “how’s going? What about the nausea? It’s a boy or a girl? When the baby will be born? What about the name? How many punds you get?” but the worst is when you have to listen to “wooow.. you look great!” (yes, sure!) or “you don’t look fat at all! It’s all about the belly!” (mmh mmh.. yeah… great!)
Meanwhile… you can’t wear your beloved jeans anymore.. and what about your favorite dresses and skirts.. and t-shirts… ALL GONE! Forget it!
Your shopping now means: 1. Usefull things for the baby 2. Usless things for the baby 3. Comfort sizes for your wearing and underwear (I mean… OMG!) and nothing more than this.
Night life… just a memory now!
Our man (HOLY MAN!) see us change our mood between 1.000 and 10.000 times a day (a minute, in my personal case!) but we get angry when we see him laugh our overweight!
Men, one day you’ll be beatified for this!
But, you know… it’s was all very nice indeed.
All these changes in these a few months.. 9 months.. have been a great adventure, a leap of faith to which I could not give up.
I learned to know myself, my deepest fears and weaknesses. I discovered new sides of my personality. I found a new force, a new power.
This pregnancy has taught me not to take everything for granted. To not be afraid of my fears.
I lived this pregnancy as best as I could.. in a less sweet and more aggressive way.. and I discovered this new femininity that I loved, despite the extra pounds!!!
Nine months have passed.. the sums has been drawn .. everything is ready to welcome you .. look forward to see you my little princess…
With love, your mum
