Sometimes I wake up scared and thinking it’s not real, but here comes a lion’s hunger, a headache, an endless sleep, uncontrollable nausea, and heartburn that only Jesus is helping me! There are times when I think I’ll get stuck with my burping! Yeah, it’s been that way and at this time I remember I’M PREGNANT. Even with all that, today I’m writing this text feeling very happy and fulfilled. I feel like I now have a bigger reason to be the coolest person ever! Do you know that girl woman that people admire and are proud of?! Today she wants to be more and more!!! All for this little being that I carry inside! I’m discovering myself as a mother and I’m scared thinking about how it’s going to be… I laugh, cry and I’m afraid. A mixture of feelings. Maybe the craziest in the world, but I’ll laugh in front of it all…thank you Lord for blessing my womb and allowing me to generate the LOVE OF MY LIFE!!! Baby, I feel ready to receive you, love you, take care of you!!! God bless us! My blessing has a name: Maya or Zayon .”
