Mother’s Day for a Primigravida

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers of the world!  I’ve always known that none of us would be here without them but now, as a primigravida, I have a whole new appreciation for mothers.

Stephanie on May 8th (almost 20 weeks)

As far as my pregnancy goes, I am still feeling great!!  No sickness, not overly tired, no problems at all (unless you count being hungry pretty much all the time).  I’m probably healthier now than I ever have been.  I actually have mixed feelings about feeling great.  On the one hand, I feel fabulous (!!!) .  On the other hand, I feel a bit guilty about feeling fabulous because I know that there are many, many women have difficult pregnancies.

For the little bean’s health, it is better for me to feel fabulous than feel guilty so I will focus on the former…and continue thanking the fertility/pregnancy goddesses for blessing me with an easy pregnancy.

The most exciting news for this week is that I’ve been feeling the little bean move!  At this point (20 weeks as of tomorrow), his/her movements are very faint and somewhat worm-like.  Nevertheless, it is profound, amazing and bizarre.  Just to think I was once in my mama’s belly squirming around and she was thinking similar thoughts…we were all once in our mama’s bellies.  Thank you to all mothers who graciously hosted our little parasitic selves, ushered us into this world, and gave so much of themselves to raise us.
