A Woman With Child

by Dalhanahue

Age Group: Adult

Much time has passed since I was known as Fawn of the Fae; A young maiden of the woods.
I longed for womanhood then, longed for my body and physical age to match that of my soul.
The years have passed though and I have blossomed into my femininity.
The only regret I hold is of not cherishing how stagnate time was as a maiden.
I hated it then but the minutes, days, even years pass now it seems in the blink of an eye
I am a woman now and as long as I have waited for it, at times it seems to have snuck up on me.
But I am indeed a woman, and not only this, I am a woman with child.

Never before have I felt such pride and fear at the same time. Conflictions of such joy and such worry.
There’s the fear of simply having a child and all that entails and of course the fear of losing the child before it’s even brought into the world
However, such conflictions I imagine have accompanied the thoughts of all new mothers since the dawn of time.
None the less with all this comes a renewed since of life. A new feeling of purpose.
Nothing I do is for myself alone and nothing I think nor feel is kept only to myself.
There is another life with in my own; two souls with in one body. Just as it was at conception.
Or at that point in time were there three? The thought of that amazes me. My body amazes me.

For the most part the dizzy spells have passed with only the occasional nausea remaining.
And I have found a new love of myself and of my new form
My breasts although very tender, seem fuller, heavier; succulent.
My thighs and hips ever so slightly swollen and voluptuous.
Again conflicting emotions.
A small part of me feels jealous and self pitying that I should have to share this new body of mine with another being.
A being that will only distort it as the months go by.
Yet I am also aware that it is only because of this little babe growing inside me that I feel such comfort and love of my body at all.
I am beautiful. The whole experience is beautiful.

So I imagine time will pass as it ever does and I will fluctuate between content and fearful.
Beautiful and disfigured. Up to the task and lacking.
Yet as dismayed as I may find myself in the those lacking moments, there is now at least a constant.
One that subdues and mends all.
I have been patient for so long yet always felt as if I were waiting on just something.
For something significant. For something bring out the true nature of my abilities and character.
For this.
I am.
I. Am. A woman at last. A woman with Child.

Author's Notes: It's been a long time since I've been on Witchvox. I partly wondered if I still had an account. I'm very glad I do.

This is my first pregnancy and I amazed at all the new emotions and thoughts that accompany it. Understandably there has been a lot going on in my head and it always helps for me to write things down. Get it on paper. Here are just some of my thoughts that sprouted a fairly nice poem I think.
