Belly love

Isn't it lovely? I get so easily wrapped up in preggie boredom and anticipation by this point. My days (hours?) are numbered but for today I will love my belly and everything that it means. Today I am a vessel. I am a cocoon, a treasure safe to one very precious jewel. This is something I will only do a few times in my whole life. What a gift. It doesn't make the aches go away but it does make me feel noble and most lovely. Such trust. This is still MY body, I just chose to share it for a time. Can't wait to meet you baby girl, enjoy your cozy womb.

Okay- maybe it's just because I am now preggie but you just got me all choked up. That little girl wasn't certainly worth it. Elaine is a doll.

She is a doll. I think it's funny that it was hours and not days. What an interesting time to have such a realization. Coincidence? I think not! I'm excited to meet your little guy/gal?
