Countdown to due date: 8 weeks and 5 days.
And many of my maternity clothes are already getting to be too small!
It’s so hard to describe what it’s like to have a little baby moving around in my belly! And my Little Micah is quite a mover!
……all happening under the skin of my belly, and I have no control over it! It’s the weirdest thing! This amazing miracle of pregnancy leaves me astonished! And I know that there’s a precious child growing in there. But I still can’t get over how weird it is sometimes!
And the weirdest part,
is that this basketball-tummy,
this jostling, round extension of my middle,
has become normal to me!
When I look down, and see this round tummy blocking sight of my feet,
and I see my belly button has been turned inside-out,
and then a wave moves across my abdomen because a little person is shifting around,
I have to wonder,
How did this ever become normal?!
I’m so thankful that this (like my first pregnancy) has gone very smoothly, and I feel great! So it almost comes as a shock to me when I walk past a mirror and catch a glimpse of my body! It just looks so funny, and I almost forget how disproportionally round my tummy is!
In a few months, I’ll have a little baby to snuggle with, and I’ll look back at pictures of his prenatal home. I’ll laugh at how crazy it all is! And even though I’m not there, yet, I’ll still look at this baby’s prenatal home, and laugh!
