it gets way better. it helps to read those "what's going on with my baby today" emails and websites and books.
I believe that in addition to the oily skin and increased bloodflow and out-of-breath-ness, the majority of the "glow of pregnancy" comes from the secretive smile that radiates from a woman who knows in her heart that she's part of an ancient and magical cycle of creation. She's got a secret, she's a goddess. A new life is forming and she's the only one who can feel it moving. Life is magical and pregnancy is the absolute all-time most amazing and wonderful thing a person can experience.
Amazing, isn't it, that this little person, half you and half your husband, created maybe even accidentally, exists deep inside of you, smaller than a walnut and already your body is changing and accomodating its growth. No one is helping him grow fingers and toes, he just does it. No one is telling you to increase your hormones, it just happens. It happens perfectly and magically every time.
You are amazing. You are just as amazing today as you were the day that you were born, just as perfect and just as whole. Enjoy each magical day of this journey to motherhood, even the nausea and the constipation hold lessons and wonder. Bless you.
