Life in the flesh

He was in there. I could feel him swirling. I felt his kicks, his hiccups.

I looked forward to meeting him whilst still savouring every moment of having him growing inside. It was the only time when he was truly mine.

I saw him wave to the world outside of me. It was so special.

I was so excited the night before he arrived.

It was also extremely painful.

But it was all worth it, and I got to hold his beautiful warm body against mine, on the outside.

Here he was, life in the flesh.

Awww, this is such a beautiful post and the photographs are gorgeous. I used to find myself rubbing my tummy for a while after giving birth - as I was forever massaging my baby whilst pregnant - became such a habit!

Love the scan photos too - how sweet to have a wave from inside - 'Hi 5'!

Thanks for joining in x

I still reminisce to my pregnancy days. Life was so simple back then. I love the memories knowing I will never do it again.
