I love love Oneika’s adventurous spirit…check out her blog when you get a chance. Clearly I wrote this post before Baby Pancakes and thought I would share it with you all because I haven’t been able to get my guest posts or new posts together. Maybe next week!
I am feeling a little melancholy or something else
about soon (hopefully in less than four days) not carrying Baby Pancakes.
Don’t get me wrong…i want him here with me but at the same time,
i am going to miss having him in my belly all the time.
I’ve loved being pregnant with him.
Knowing that he was safe, protected
and well taken care of has been the best feeling ever!
My mama bear fierceness was so alive as i would make my way around day to day.
My hand was always protecting my belly.
There was no way no harm was going to get to my baby.
I’ve loved having Baby Pancakes with me.
Wherever, i went, he was able to come with me.
And to spend 40 weeks with someone is a wonderful thing.
For 40 weeks i was never alone and that’s been an amazing feeling.
I’ve loved rubbing and talking to my belly.
And although i miss sleeping on my belly and picking up things off the floor…
I’ve loved every single moment of watching my belly grow…and develop
And i can’t even imagine watching my little Baby Pancakes grow
and grow some more once he is born.
There are definitely more perks with him being here…
i get to cuddle and wuddle with him and those moments i cannot wait for.
But i still couldn’t help but reminisce a little about how much. i am going to miss having him inside me.
As much as babies need the feeling of being cocooned in the womb once they are born..
i think mothers need that feeling of warmth too…feeling of protectiveness and nurturing.
