Waiting is like War

Incubating is hard work.

Sitting still takes up so much action, so much mental energy.

Moving about the day in hyper speed, ticking off boxes and strike-throughing ICals is a Hawaiian breeze compared to this.

I realized I was pregnant when…

I found out I was pregnant just over a month ago. I did not believe it.

I peed on a stick. Pregnant.

I went to a midwife. Pregnant.

My boobs turned into sandbags. Pregnant.

The smell of barbeque gave me an olfactory orgasm. Pregnant.

My period was 3 months late. Pregnant.

I still did not believe it.
