Being Comfortable in a Pregnant Body

Every stretch mark I see is a sign that my body made room for a little human to grow bigger. My belly button that is no longer in existence is a sign I’m close to meeting my baby girl. The pain in my round ligament tells me I once carried a child before so this one sits closer to where she will meet the world. My wakefulness at night is filled with the movement that is preparing me for the tiny human she will be. I’m learning her mannerisms and now one else gets to experience that yet except me. That is beautiful.
