Every woman who gets pregnant goes through a huge body and mind transformation. The first battle occurs gradually as the baby grows larger and larger inside the womb. The body stretches and expands in ways never thought imaginable to make room for the new life. Emotions rise to a whole new level of craziness as extra hormones are being produced at intense rates. Never before felt aches and pains strike hard. A woman’s body is made for this but the mind is not prepared.
Eventually, the baby decides he is ready to be born. The body turns into a human machine and cranks out the baby regardless if the mother’s mind is ready to battle this excruciating pain. (And the mother’s mind is never ready for this battle.) Without it ever feeling possible, the woman’s body actually succeeds and a baby is born.
That, my friends, is where I am at now! Hooray for having babies! Good thing they are so stinkin’ cute and snuggly.
