Pregnancy is such a beautiful thing

Pregnancy is such a beautiful thing. Yeah, sure it's hard. Maybe you're puking or you feel fat. It could be that you feel like it's the hardest thing you've ever done. 

If you're anything like me when I'm pregnant, you call b.s. on the whole thing being "magical." You can read a post I wrote years ago about the b.s. here. I can complain all day about how hard it is, but why waste my time? 

Almost ten years after my first pregnancy, I realize that physical beauty is fleeting. My legacy is my children, and if pregnancy sucks the beauty out of me so be it. That's a small price to pay for the children that I call mine. Beauty fades, but children last for eternity.

I need to be looking at how truly empowering pregnancy is. My body is creating a human that my husband and I wanted to bring earth side. This baby will be born from our love, and my body will sustain it when they're born.

You might not feel like you're beautiful or glowing when you're pregnant, but you are. Inside of you is a perfect baby. They're innocent and kind and good. They represent everything the world needs right now, and you are the one making them.

There is nothing more selfless than being pregnant and becoming a mother. Literally, nothing else compares. You are giving your whole body, your mind, and your spirit to bring someone else into this world. 

So, when you see that hormonal acne, those stretch marks, the cellulite, the back fat, whatever it is that makes you feel physically insecure, remember that it is just for a season.They will be born. You will meet their gaze, and you will know that you are something special. You are a mother. That is now your superpower. You are someone's hero, and what can be more beautiful than that?
