Pregnancy

The adventure that transforms woman and man into parents – giving life, bearing life, protecting life.

I have known for over a week now that I am pregnant, ad I have felt a growing tension. Pregnancy is a unique experience. It is little understood by men, and so different for all women that one feels very much alone. I feel so many different things. Often I feel fear of the unknown. I feel ill at ease and uncomfortable with my body changes. I honestly can’t say I feel particularly maternal or overly enthusiastic about the whole thing. But, there are moments; moments when I feel a very quiet joy, a very personal well being for the small creation within me.

This is for me the greatest mystery: hundreds of children are born every day, but this will be our child, our unique one. Since I have no prior experience to tell me what any of this means, my excitement is so great it almost hurts.

If life in the womb is truly so very important, women could do a lot to change the destiny of the world.
