Versed in pregnancy
Perhaps not ever.
It would take a woman stronger than me to be well versed in pregnancy.
Funny how each one is different.
Funny how my body adapts, changes and grapples with the wee one tucked below the folds of flesh.
But I am getting there, slowly.
The person who said "age is nothing but a number" was never pregnant with her fourth child in her 30s.
For a few weeks, exhaustion threatened to completely take over my life. Then, raging amounts of hormones running rampant through my body decided that being tired wasn't enough. I could hear them screaming, "Let's make her incredibly nauseous!!!"
Never had I experienced symptoms of this magnitude during gestation.
But I think it's reaching its end ... Now I am just ready for all the joys of pregnancy, like feeling a moving baby with a strong heartbeat.
The first trimester is nearing the end ... For that, I won't complain because I am all too ready to feel like a pregnant lady, rather than a bloated hormone dumpster.
