i feel like a whale.

i miss button up jeans

i miss not having to wear a bra

i miss sleeping on my stomach

i miss being able to jump out of bed/the car/off the couch

i miss peeing less than 5 times a day

i miss fitting into my clothes

i miss herbal remedies

i miss endless cups of coffee

i miss being able to bend over and pick something up without groaning

i miss recognizing my body in the mirror

i miss not feeling breathless all the time.

but…

i love feeling my son stretch out his tiny legs

i love feeling my son dancing in his tiny water nest

i love his little hiccups that feel like popcorn popping in my stomach

i love my son and that makes it all worthwhile.
