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.


I'm linking this post with other bloggers who have been inspired by this weeks theme - Life.

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.
