It changes your body and your mind. The things once important now seem trivial. Thoughts crowd into my head- the things I want to do before she is here. I want to hold my boys a little bit longer. I want to read more stories. I want to sleep longer on Saturday. I want to bake a cake for my neighbor. I want to be a family of four a few more days.
Soon we will be a family of five. Will she come tonight? Tomorrow? How about on Wednesday? Wednesday would be a good day to change our lives.
Pregnancy is a season. A shadow that quickly moves away.
