Muscle Twitches. That’s what it felt like – muscle twitches pumping over and over in my belly.
It was Blueberry! I felt my little baby, inside my belly today! It was the most exciting thing! And it really couldn’t have come at a better time! …
I went maternity clothes shopping yesterday.
I hate shopping even when Im looking my best, but when I have to shop for clothes that have a foot long waist band and fit them on to a body that is still lacking a legit baby bump and instead is sporting what looks like 10 lbs of extra fat around the waist – well, it brings me to tears.
I did manage to leave H&M Maternity and Gap Maternity with a couple pieces yesterday, but they all went back to the store today. I tried them on this morning and said, no, no, no. NO.
On my way back to Gap Maternity today, I stopped by Macy’s maternity section. I walked into the dressing room with an armful of clothes, feeling pretty hopeless at the prospects, but then Blueberry saved the day!!! I stood motionless in the dressing room focused on the twitching I was feeling in my belly! Yesterday, I thought I had felt it for a mili-second, but today it was a full 2-3 minutes of beating away. Blueberry knew mommy wasn’t feeling happy and wanted to remind her that maternity shopping should be considered a celebration of a miracle, not something to dread. I wouldn’t be shopping if it weren’t for the fact that I am expecting a baby. I am one of the lucky ones and Blueberry reminded me that I should look past my ‘gut’ and simply celebrate!
Can’t wait til daddy is able to feel out little Blueberry kicking!!!
