Thoughts

Some-one asked in my comments what it felt like to carry a baby?

Wow..what a question i thought...not one that I've been asked before and not one that i had really ever thought about in depth...coz when your pregnant your pregnant if you get what i mean?!

Anyway it got me thinking in the wee small hours of last night when again Bear was awake so, so was i :-(

And i thought that i would try to put down in words what it feels like to me to be a carrier of a unborn child

My younger sister once said that to her it felt like having an alien inside of her at time as she felt that her body was not her own anymore...

Yes that is one feeling that i have had at times during this and the last pregnancy.....

But not in a bad way

It is like you are the guardian of a new life and all the potential that goes with the new life...you know that you are carrying another human life but at the same time it is hard to image how it will all turn out......

Will they look like you?, be like you in anyway? do you want them to be like you? do you have traits that you would rather they never had?

As far a physical feelings well, the baby certainly lets you know they are there!!! kicks, puches...hiccups...that was Bear in the womb....hiccuped his way through his whole term in the womb hehehe

I think i would like to say that it is has been a privilege as far i am concerned to have been pregnant and experienced it.....

But happy that it's only been twice.....

7 reflections:

Good description. I think two pregnancies probably would have been enough for me, too. Not just two children, but pregnancy itself. I found it hard going, but indeed a priveledge like you said. Spot on.xx

I loved being pregnant. When we decided that 3 children would be enough for us, I really was saddened at the thought that I would never be pregnant nor give birth ever again!

There really is nothing to equate the feelings.....

Yep, one more for the 'loved being pregnant' team here.

But, I don't want to do it again. After having had three children, I'm finally realising the connection between the nice pregnant stage and the years of chaos that follow.

Hmmmm, I've never really been a quick learner.

The lemonade is for attitude and gratitude apparently.

I gave it to the people I enjoyed visiting who made me feel good or made me smile. Thanks.xx
