Half. Way. There.
I can’t express how much I am loving being pregnant. In spite of the few difficult days, I am loving this time in my life. I have just the right amount of energy to do the things I should do each day (as long as I have a banana). I am learning to depend more on Osiris for the things I can’t do. I am seeing how much he loves taking care of me and that makes me fall in love with him more. I love watching my body changing in the mirror. I love how I feel in my body. I feel beautiful and sexy and strong. It’s just like Shania Twain said “Man, I feel like a woman.” But in a different context than she describes.
I’m almost a little sad that I’ve reached the half-way point. This means it’ll be over soon. But I’m also happy and excited to meet the little guy growing inside of me. I wonder what on earth he’ll look like. Will he look Mexican? Will he look Dominican? Will he have blue eyes???? I know that sounds crazy and absurd that I even ask. You think I’m joking, but one of his grandmas has blue eyes. I’ll let you guess which one.
The few downturns this week have been:
- Night sweats. Nasty.
- Lower left-side back pain. No more heels. 😦
- Increasing dryness of skin. Over my wrists and my chin skin are super duper dry!
Besides that, I’m good. Happy, happy, happy.
