Pregnancy Pangs

When both my daughters were born I held them in my arms, loved them, cuddled them and still missed them. For nine months we were so close. Their births left me feeling a little empty. During my pregnancies I knew they were always close and safe inside of me. I will always treasure that special time and still occasionally long for it. I never would have guessed that I would miss being fifty pounds heavier, nauseous and full of internal movement.
Nothing else I have ever done in my life has been as humbling and empowering as my pregnancies and I miss it.
So, How do you get over the pregnancy pangs? I haven't yet. I still miss them but I still sneak in and photograph my daughters sleeping. My oldest is five and to see her curled in sleep makes the ultrasound feel like a second a go. Those moments fill my heart, if not my womb and that is enough.
Perhaps that is why I am so drawn to these beautiful necklaces. by Birth Designs . If you love these powerful yet dainty necklaces as much as I do you can find them on Etsy, http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=76850
I think they would also make beautiful gifts of appreciation for surrogates and birth mothers.
I am in awe of every woman that makes amazing sacrifices so that children find their way to the parents that are anxiously waiting to love, treasure and adore them. My prayers are also with the mothers still waiting for their children. I hope that your dream of motherhood is soon be realized.

I just love all that lovely jewelry! What a beautiful thing. I'll have to remember this place the next time I get pregnant...should that ever occur. :p

I loved being pregnant. I never felt sexier, or more blessed. I would like to have a baby girl. If there were some way I could be guaranteed a girl... (without all the expensive junk attached to making it so. Not to mention the God-less-ness of it...)

What a nice post! I still have the urge for all my babies to be in the womb again, I don't know when you get over it...maybe never. My oldest just turned six, middle one is almost 4 and baby is almost 15 months. They are my life!!
The necklace you've shown is nice. Thanks for visiting us over at Pleez Pass the Pees...we have fun with the nonsense of it.
I liked your Word Veri...Franties...funny times!
Have a great day, come visit my other blog sometime.
