Pregnancy: Week 32

Wow, 32 weeks.

I still am in awe at this number. There have been so many moments during this pregnancy that I wanted time to stand still; while other weeks I have been so impatient it truly tested my moods. I remember eagerly wanting to get out of the first trimester so I could start sharing the news, and shake my fears of miscarriage.

I had a co-worker ask me today, how I was feeling now that I am nearing the end? I had to sit back and think about that question.

I thought to myself....
Yes, my back hurts
Yes, this indigestion and heartburn is super annoying
Yes, the interrupted sleep I am getting is hard

But honestly, if this is all I have to complain about, then Pregnancy has been good to me. I know people that love being pregnant and miss it. They tell me to enjoy it while it lasts. I get it now.

I promise to never forget this time in my life. I want to appreciate everything about it. During this time, Tim and I have never been closer. We talk about our future with bright eyes, and we have bonded over feeling our baby kick or flutter. We talk about our hopes and dreams. I have come to realize that Tim is not only a wonderful husband, but he will soon be a wonderful dad too.

I have a beautiful round belly that gets bigger by the day. I have this extraordinary body that is changing before my eyes. And our baby, our darling little girl. I get to feel her energetic kicks and pokes all the time! I get to see her roll from one side of my belly to the other.

I giggle at her constant bouts of hiccups, and I love that she is a creature of habit; already making herself comfortable in her favorite position - usually head down to the right of my belly.

So here I am at 32 weeks, with only 8 left to go. So how am I feeling now that I am nearing the end?

I am happy and sad. I can't wait to meet this little girl once she arrives, and I hope I can give her the life I have always dreamed of.
