    Could I be?
    Not sure, I feel different somehow
    Not feeling so well in the morning
    Can't seem to get enough sleep now
    The test comes back, positive
    and I am not sure how to feel.
    Giddy, tearful, trembling, emotional
    roller coaster, what's the deal?
    Beginning to show, it feels a little
    more real. What is that flutter inside?
    Could it be? There's a living being
    growing inside me. God, be my guide.
    I want to think the most positive thoughts
    during this time, I don't want stress to fill
    my baby's little soul. I want her to be healthy
    and happy. Please, let it be your will.
    Months go by, I feel like a beach ball about
    to pop. We've traveled together for
    nearly a year, time to let you go.
    Feels like bad cramps at first, then turns into more
    pain than I knew was humanly possible to endure.
    Bearing down, struggling to push out, you
    this cocooned entity that I so want to see,
    and... finally... I... do...
    As the first breath is taken, I finally exhale
    mine, spent with the exhilaration
    we look directly into each others eyes
    truly mesmerized
    in this welcoming salutation
    You look at me, "Hello"
    I look at you, "Hello"
    In the beginning of a foundation
    that will be built upon
    long after I take my final breath.
    I love you daughter, I love you son.

    Yes, Blue, even when it has been a lifetime, those initial thoughts and feelings stay within you and make you smile, thank you.

    A deep love for your child from a mother. Emotionally deep. A sense of closeness and chemistry connected as you first see your son and daughter.

    Sister this was so beautiful...
    you captured the beginning of
    motherhood so perfectly...
    all the uncertainty, excitement
    and pain...all in the name of
    life and love...
    Any woman...that is a mother
    would see herself in this peace...

    Beautiful Work Watz :grouphug:
