I keep having these WHOAH moments and they're becoming more frequent as this pregnancy progresses.
There is another human being, fully apart from myself, who I know NOTHING about past what I've seen on one ultrasound, inhabiting my body. Like, living IN my body, making use of my resources, and inspiring all sorts of unappealing transitions.
I blame technology for the sense of disconnect. It can do everything else for me but I still have to do the primitive, child-bearing thing if I want to pass along my legacy.
And I love every second of it.
