It’s been a while since I got to hold tiny babies, only weeks old, and over the past few weeks I got that chance. She was such an adorable little baby and if I could smuggle her out of the house…
Anyway, I realised that my body was sending my brain mixed signals while I was holding her.
Womb: “OMG! I want one of those now. NAO!”
Hips: “OMG! I’m going to have to expand to make room for that?! NOOOOOOOO!!!!”
Rational part of the Brain: “Not ready. Not ready. Not ready!”
Emotional part of the Brain: “So kyooooote! It would be awesome to have one. Like, right now.”
To say that I was mildly confused would be an understatement but I loved holding her. She felt perfect in my arms.
Incidentally, when I met a pregnant friend during lunch time, she mentioned that she could not even button her lab coat now. She’s about five months along and she was just glowing.
I can’t wait when it’s my turn to not be able to to button my lab coat due to the pregnant belly. Not that I would actually want to be in the lab when I’m pregnant but hey, who knows.
