tomorrow we find out some big news about this bambino/bambina kicking around inside of me. namely, whether it is a bambino or bambina!
i can’t believe we are this far along in the process already. and i realize that i haven’t shared nearly as much as i thought i might share about this pregnancy. in the past four months, i’ve been experiencing a flood of new excitement, fears, questions, and moments of “how is this beautiful thing even possible?”--down right awe. but, i’ve also felt more private about these experiences than i thought i would. so i’ve had trouble deciding how and what to share about all the things changing in our lives as this little baby grows. it’s been the most joyous and intimate season of our lives.
plus, i figure:
one. if you've been pregnant you can probably imagine how i’ve felt physically. how grateful i am for bowel movements. how many naps my body begs for each day. and how everything stops when you think you feel a flutter.
two. if you've ever seen anyone who is pregnant, you can probably imagine exactly how my body is changing too. it’s growing. and rearranging. and totally revolving around keeping this child happy and healthy. yes i am growing a bump and all that normal stuff.
three. i’m not special or different from every other woman who has ever gone through this.
but i do want to write, and remember, and share some things about this time too. so i am thinking of ways to retain the intimacy of this experience, and still document and share some of the joy and important memories along the way! hope this all makes sense.
thanks for being such sweet readers. :)
ps, did you become more reserved about things when you were pregnant? usually, i just share it all here. and with this, that’s harder for me. did you love sharing every symptom/photo/kick with the world? or were you more private about it? guess this age of facebook/blog makes things so different!
