i should still be pregnant

i started to follow fellow expecting mommas on instagram right after we knew we were expecting. it was fun to see their updates each week as i made mine. watching our bellies grow together.

but as i go through my feed now, i realized that that should still be me. i should still be pregnant for a least another month. i try to imagine just how i would look like now with my belly. how i'd still be stuck in a hospital bed away from my house, my work and my pup. maybe it was all for the best. a month has gone by already. i don't have that belly anymore. do i miss it? i'm not sure. but i'd take it over this flabbiness that has been left. i'm thankful for how God planned it, but i can't help but feel if he waited two more months, i'd be more prepared. but then again, i doubt that'd be even possible.

the stroller would still have been purchased, the bags were still packed. nothing changed except the fact that my little man was a lot smaller than all those babies will be when they are finally born. for now, i can't wait for them to arrive so we can share in new baby experiences instead of expanding stomachs.

  1. I get emotional each time I read a blog post or see an Instagram picture. You must know what an incredible woman you are. I have been inspired by your courage and faith as you've handled all of the unexpected circumstances of your life with such grace. You have taken on your new role as a mother with such love that my heart has grown two sizes! Your sweet little Beau is so blessed to have you. You've been on my mind and in my prayers.
