It might be a lot like yours (or not at all)

What pregnancy has done to me…

In I'm a Baby Mama! on December 7, 2008 at 10:04 am

Pregnancy has created one new thing in me already, besides the growing life in my womb. It has created patience and calm. My mother said my eyes look calmer than they ever have. I feel calm. I feel as though I’m floating through the day, through the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. My tolerance for wastes of time or bad vibes are at their all-time low due to my level of exhaustion–I’m saying no to things to protect my well-being for probably the first time ever. I have quickly mastered patience. Why? Because I have to wait 7 more months to meet this child. I’ve embraced the unknown because life is now very unknown and every turn of the way this is all new for me–the only way to deal without being neurotic is to embrace the unknown. My new role as a mother has already created a profound sense of worth, responsibility, and strength–all of this is now ampliphied because I need to be this for someone else. I feel important, like I have the most important job in the world now. I feel sober, clear-headed, and focused on creating the best life for me and my family. Once a bundle of what in comparison seems like nervous-energy…I am now a calm-energy, but no less vibrant, free-spirited, and wild–those are things I hope to pass down to my little one.
