It’s the weirdest thing.
Most every time I catch my reflection, whether in a shop window or the very mirror in my own bedroom, the first thought that crosses my mind is: who is that pregnant woman?
You’d think with all of the sickness and the super-active baby (who holds hourly dance parties in my belly) and the raging hormones, it wouldn’t catch me off guard to see myself pregnant. This pregnant.
But it does. And it makes me smile every time.
I’m trying to savor these last few weeks. Because it really is amazing to have an almost-ready-for-the-world human being growing inside your body.
So. If you see a random pregnant lady on the sidewalk staring in bewilderment at her reflection, just keep walking.
