Head Spinning

Now my first trimester is almost over, I find the nausea has abated for the most part, and my breasts don’t hurt as much as they did when I grew them. Now though I’m fighting dizziness…

My belly is starting to grow too. In the last week, I’ve literally felt my boy pushing up… I understand my uterus is about the size of a large grapefruit, and I can feel it. I can feel him!!! It’s as if someone dropped water on pasta and my stomach has just expanded… and you can feel the difference every day.

Sometimes I am kind of amazed at what’s happening to my body, and kind of a little overwhelmed… because, I’m going to be someone’s mother soon. It’s a trip… wrapping my mind around it. There’s so much to think about, stuff I just never gave much thought to before.

I guess it’s a good thing it takes most of a year to make a baby, and get used to it. If you had to go from finding out you’re pregnant to ‘Ma’ in six weeks it would mess up anybody.
