I’m So Done Being Pregat
Zeus, here. For those of you that somehow still don’t know, I am pregnant right now. VERY pregnant. Or, pregat, as Sean and I like to joke. (Want in on the joke? Here ya go: https://youtu.be/EShUeudtaFg) I know that many women like to paint being pregnant as this *magical* time where you feel all warm and bubbly inside as you spend your days dreaming of holding your darling baby in your arms… I’m glad that many of you feel that way.
I personally feel like a majestic sea-cow, powered by super smelly farts and aching hips, constantly ready to bite someone’s head off just for funsies. 🙂
Yes, in many ways I do cherish this time of being large and in charge, waddly and glowing. I do look forward to holding my daughter in my arms – I wonder each day what she will look like. Will she resemble Tibs? Will she look completely different? What color eyes will she have? Etc. But I also have a lot on my plate. I run an online business with my husband, take care of household responsibilities, and oh yeah, I’m already a mom, so kinda busy with that too.
All this being said, I would not have it any other way. When Sean and I first found out we were expecting Tibs, I was terrified of being a parent. I have never been one of those women who spent their youth dreaming of someday being a mom. Married, sure. I knew that was in my future. But parenthood? No way, Jose.
Fast forward to now, and I cannot properly express how grateful I am to have had this chance to be a mom – to learn and grow so much personally while getting a front row seat to the beauty of watching my son grow. Being a mom IS a truly special thing, I believe. Pregnancy, however, is just the annoying limbo time we’re given to get our heads screwed on straight so we can plan ahead for the next one’s needs, in my humble opinion. 😉
Now that we feel ready for our little girl I JUST WANT HER TO BE HERE. I want to sleep on my stomach. I want to walk normally and have my core strength back. I want to start losing the weight I’ve gained during the pregnancy. The list goes on.
So, here’s to patience. To not always getting what I want, when I want it. Here’s to growing in love and expectation for all of the joyous things to come. Only a couple more weeks and an entirely new adventure will begin – and I’m all about adventure.
