Body Snatchers

June 7

I was some what prepared for a slight change of body structure upon becoming pregnant. I knew with all certainty that my breasts would enlarge and that my belly would grow to enormous proportions. I had NOT however expected to look in the mirror and not recognise the woman staring back at me. I have NO idea where this body came from or who's it is but somebody came in the thick of the night, stole my cute little body and traded it with the lumpy one that stares back at me in the mirror now. It's like your father said the other day, it's like being with a totally different woman.

If someone were to take a picture of me naked from the neck down and then pass me a bunch of pictures of other women from the neck down I would not for the life of me be able to pick out which one I was. Not a chance. I will stand in front of the mirror for 25 minutes some days just staring at the anomaly that is now my body. It's absolutely amazing what the human body will go through in order to create a new life. Amazing and disturbing all at the same time. I have no idea where my intestines and stomach had to relocate them selves in order to accommodate a child within my short little abdomen. Every time my stomach bothers me and I attempt to rub my belly I realize I'm not anywhere near my belly any more. I'm just rubbing the area that now houses my placenta. Which does not make my belly feel any better. But it makes me laugh just the same.

Have I mentioned that I gained 30 pounds?! 30 POUNDS! I'm only 5 months 3 weeks pregnant! I have at least 4 months left to go! Where am I going to put all that weight!? How am I going to walk? No more cookies for you baby. 30 pounds, are you freaking kidding me? The craziest part of it is YOU only take up ONE of those 30 pounds. Yup, just one. Man, I think my back hurts now. How is it going to feel in two months when I've swelled out to the size of a small hippo? I can tell already that this is going to get really ugly. Bring it ON baby, so what if I can't walk, I'm having a baby!
