Half Baked July 9, 2012

I wrote a post a little while ago that seems to have disappeared completely.

In summary, it said:
All is still well.
Life is crazy.
I am still sick.
I am still in awe of my body.
We’re having a baby boy.

Today marks the official half way point.

Tomorrow I have another scan, to hopefully confirm what we found out at 16 weeks – that our Fuzzy is of the boy variety! He’s finally kicking me hard enough that I know it’s him (I’ve felt ‘something’ since early June, but not convinced that it was him).

I have been a terrible blogger, I know. I don’t even know what’s holding me back. This period of my pregnancy has felt like a calm before an impending storm. Some days, I still don’t really feel pregnant.

But then I catch my reflection, and the belly that finally says ‘baby’ not ‘blubber’. I feel the firm basketball bump underneath the flab. I feel the tiny little pokes and flutters coming ever so strangely from within. I feel the fiercely overwhelming urge to protect our son from the world.

And I start to realise, that maybe I’m not playing make-believe after all.
