Hello! My name is Elis and I am twenty-one years old … I have five more weeks to go till my baby is born! I am very excited since this is my first baby. Everything is doing fine, I just have been feeling more and more tired everyday because of my huge belly … My baby kicks me so much!! Sometimes I even start laughing ‘cause it seems that he trying to say something … lol. It’s amazing how such thing can happen.
At the beginning of my pregnancy I heard a lot of stories about the pregnancy symptoms, how I would feel throughout the months. Well, I first felt really sick and then in the last months I struggled breathing and the heartburn was terrible. I never thought that getting pregnant would be like that, but on the other hand, I thank God everyday for giving me this baby. I am sure that the moment I see him (Yan) will be unique and I’ll love him as I have never loved anyone before.
I’ve been living in the US for over two years and now my mom is coming from Brazil to share this wonderful moment with me in a couple of days. I haven’t seen her since I left Brazil, so I am so thrilled and feel so lucky to have so many good things happening at the same time!
Thanks for reading my short story … I am very happy to share it with you …
