It seems that so much of my life I have had to assist my body in working correctly. To digest food I have to provide my body with enzymes. To breath well I have hours of treatments. To ensure my body works properly I have to provide my body with extra vitamins. In order to keep my sinuses clear I have to do sinus rinses. My body is very dependent on me and I need to put a lot of work into it in order to ensure it is working correctly.
My bodies lack of independence makes me more in awe of this pregnancy than I could ever imagine. Somehow this needy body is doing something all on it's own without daily assistance from me. In fact, two weeks before I saw those 2 pink lines it was silently working without even a whisper of what was going on. After those 2 pink lines appeared I started to see or feel changes has made me feel an unimaginable amount of respect for a woman's body. It is too early to see many changes, but watching my breasts get larger and heavies is fascinating. My body is working everyday to allow me to nourish my baby when he/she arrives. It did not need a reminder or guidance, it simply knows what to do! Feeling the twinges of my ever expanding uterus reminds me that my body knows to make room for this miracle growing in me everyday. I am in complete awe of this body that has always given me so much grief (because of CF) and I now think women really are the superior sex :)
