Mommylogues: Belly Confessions

I love love Oneika's adventurous spirit...check out her blog when you get a chance.                     Clearly I wrote this post before Baby Pancakes and thought I would share it with you all because I haven't been able to get my guest posts or new posts together. Maybe next week!

I am feeling a little melancholy or something else
 about soon (hopefully in less than four days) not carrying Baby Pancakes.
Don't get me wrong...i want him here with me but at the same time,
 i am going to miss having him in my belly all the time. 

I've loved being pregnant with him.  
Knowing that he was safe, protected 
and well taken care of has been the best feeling ever! 
My mama bear fierceness was so alive as i would make my way around day to day.
My hand was always protecting my belly.
There was no way no harm was going to get to my baby.

I've loved having Baby Pancakes with me.
Wherever, i went, he was able to come with me.  
And to spend 40 weeks with someone is a wonderful thing.  
For 40 weeks i was never alone and that's been an amazing feeling.  
I've loved rubbing and talking to my belly.
And although i miss sleeping on my belly and picking up things off the floor...

I've loved every single moment of watching my belly grow...and develop
And i can't even imagine watching my little Baby Pancakes grow
 and grow some more once he is born.

There are definitely more perks with him being here...
i get to cuddle and wuddle with him and those moments i cannot wait for.
But i still couldn't help but reminisce a little about how much.                                                                  i am going to miss having him inside me.
As much as babies need the feeling of being cocooned in the womb once they are born..
i think mothers need that feeling of warmth too...feeling of protectiveness and nurturing.

such a sweet post. truly enjoyed reading this.

it is amusing to me that lots of mothers say how much they couldn't wait to not be pregnant and meet their little ones, but then when baby comes they miss being pregnant :)

i can't imagine having someone with me, every moment, for 40 weeks. you make it sound incredible! :)

Glad he is finally here. You can cuddle with him and talk face to face with him :-).

I hope you're all adjusting well.

Aww! What a sweet post! I feel the same way as I'm reaching the end of my pregnancy. I can't wait to officially meet this little person in my belly, but I know I'm going to miss the special time that we are able to spend together, just the two of us. It really is bittersweet. Congrats again on your new addition, don't worry about keeping us bloggers entertained, we'll be here when you get back from enjoying "Newbornland". :-)

I have definitely heard other mom-to-be's expressing similar feelings. I'm curious to know whether I'll feel the same someday!

Aleta said...

Awwww, this was such a pretty post, and I know I'm going to be feeling this same way the closer that March comes around...

toi said...

I feel the same and my daughter is 10months. I imagine how her 17lbs would fit in my belly

Awe, I felt the exact same way!!! It's a huge change in your life, and even though you had 9 months to prepare, not having that baby in you is definitely a change!! Glad you are all doing so well!

such a sweet post and I think almost every momma feels this way, even if it's just a little bit!

Quiana said...

I love the perspective of having someone with you all the time and not feeling alone! I'm sure you are enjoying your newborn so much.

angie said...

aww that's a natuural feeling i'm sure! at least now you'll get the pleasure of watching baby pancakes grow and laugh and go on adventures!

Janna Renee said...

That makes perfect sense to me. Right now he's literally a part of you, but I know that as soon as he pops out you will be happy to hold him ;) You are SO close!
