Now that I’m past the season of life that includes being pregnant, I am able to look at pregnancy completely differently. I am able to gloss over the physical discomfort and pure exhaustion and zone in on beauty of pregnancy.
I find myself choking up when I think of the quiet moments where I would just sit and connect with the little person moving inside of me, growing larger each day. I remember running my hands over my belly imagining where my son’s leg was, where his knee was, trying to figure out which body part just poked me and made me jump.
I know, right now I’m not the one with the giant belly so it’s easy to look back and remember giggling each time my boys had the hiccups. I don’t have the kid kicking me so hard that I have to stop and catch my breath. Since I don’t, however, I feel it’s my duty to remind you mamas in the middle of pregnancy; you are doing great! You look beautiful and this time will pass quickly!
Hang in there mama and come see me. Let me capture in photos those sweet moments, because they are there! We’ll go slow and take breaks so you can give to your little one the gift of seeing themselves in your belly. Let them see the love you have for them even before they came into this world.
