The Belly Rub

Before I was pregnant I always thought it slightly strange how pregnant women would rub their bellies. Sometimes in discomfort, sometimes just absentmindedly and sometimes it seemed to me like they were just being smug. I was jealous, I suppose, of their connection with that little being in there. It looked like love and I wanted it.

Now that my belly is slowing becoming an orb of wonder, I find that I can’t stop touching it. It’s not just to feel my baby, because I can’t feel anything yet, but because it’s like having an extra appendage. It just sits there like a new friend, just hanging out.

I think we’re going to be good friends.
