A moment in the moment

Warning: This post is about pregnancy in a way I wouldn't have wanted to read about in my more vulnerable moments. This might be a post to skip. In fact, if there is any doubt at all, you should skip it.


I was just dancing in my kitchen to this song among others:



Such a wonderful moment - to feel the music in my soul and to enjoy the movement of my body, my bare feet on the cold kitchen floor. To dance - but not like I normally dance. Many of my favorite movements had a little change here or a different feel there. I relished in the way my pregnant body moved. How wonderful to notice that I don't balance quite as well. What joy in the moments when I felt compelled to touch my belly to give it just a bit more support for this move or that. How lucky am I that I get to dance? How doubly lucky am I that I get to dance with a little one growing inside of me?

I'm so glad that you are able to enjoy your pregnancy. I think that it is the most awesome experience than anyone ever can have. For those of us who have to struggle, it is sweet in a way that others just cannot understand.

Well now, if I didn't know better, I'd say that sounds like some 2nd trimester hormones kicking in...?

You are lucky, and you deserve it... : )

Dance away, just think how good that is for your baby. They feel it all, from the second of conception. I am entirely convinced of that.

Revel!
