Meeting with Mae who is beautifully pregnant right now made me remember my own pregnancy days. Those were the times when I have to take extra precautions because I am no longer alone, that I had my baby inside me already that made me more responsible for both of us. It was always a weird but wonderful feeling for me when Svet kicks from inside every now and then. It only means that she is very healthy and it’s partly because I only take best prenatal vitamins and maintain a healthy diet.
Even though my lower back was almost always painful towards the end of my pregnancy, I always kept in my mind that it’s only a small part of being pregnant and I that I should cherish every pain and happiness I am feeling at the time. Seeing Svet for the very first time in the hospital nursery, I can’t help but cry because I’ve been waiting for her for several months. There she was, sleeping peacefully right in front of me, like she’s been there all along, just waiting for me to come and get her.
