Hmmm.. there is so much I love about being pregnant, this may be lengthy!
I love how my realization of the life growing within me gives me a boost of focus on my priorities and goals in life.
I love paying more attention to my health and nutrition than I usually do (I think I normally put my needs on a back burner, compared to my kids').
I love making my prenatal "appointment" chart, and setting up all my midwifery equipment in a handy location.
I love keeping up to date on the scientific research, and creating a diet and supplement plan for my individual needs.
I love telling the people I love most in the world first, and waiting until others are bold enough to say they have noticed I'm expanding! :p
I love how relaxin makes my joints crack easier.
I love eagerly awaiting the first movements from within, and cherishing the closeness I have with my baby. I believe it is the closest 2 humans can ever be.
I love making my own maternity clothes that make me feel lovely and original.
I also love singing to my baby, and making music. (I get to be onstage while pregnant, up until I can't stand it anymore.. this is a first. I'm really looking forward to that!) I hope to write a song or two for the baby.
I love knowing the baby's position.. I love obsessing over optimal foetal positioning late in pregnancy to assure a LOA- easy birth.
I love learning of my baby's gender through dreams, and having that confirmed when he/she is earthside!
I love trusting my body and birth.
I just plain love being pregnant and having babies. I know I'm not the only one! I actually teared up writing this. This may be my last baby.
