This moment has taken me by storm. It’s not a hail storm, a rainstorm. I’m happy that I’ve decided to go through and have the baby. Yes, a baby! I believe we are going to be great parents. There’s no one else I have in mind I would want to have a baby with.
I’m looking forward to what this journey will bring. I’m looking forward to this part of my life. To think just a couple of years ago, I was beginning a more natural, healthy, lifestyle. And to think in less than nine months, I will be helping to guide another life on their journey. I think that’s what I’m most looking forward to: who is this person and what will they bring. Not to put pressure on them, but just curiosity has struck me.
As I maneuver through the nuances of pregnancy, another human being will be taking shape. There is so much to look towards, and nausea is not one of them.
The ball starts rolling down the hill so fast. Picking up momentum as the wind pushes its back. Twigs, gum, even discarded condom wrappers confronts its path. And there’s no stopping.
