Pregnant Perceptions

When I was pregnant I felt like a luscious tropical fruit walking around. One of the maternity dresses I sewed for myself was a pink mumuu. When I wore it I felt like a pink cloud floating in the sky.

They tell me you’ll be a bundle of joy but right now you’re a pain in the ass.

I bask in the warm rays

which make me sleepy and slow

loving my round full body

causing it to glow

I loved being pregnant and full and alive and feminine and woman. I loved looking like a whale and walking like a duck. I felt strong, I felt confident, I felt alive.
