Blogging 101 – Day Seven: Give and Take
Today’s Prompt: Write a post based on the contrast between two things – whether people, objects, places, emotions, or something else.
Today’s Twist: Write your post in the form of a dialogue.
I am going to do something a little different today and write about my two pregnancies, from the babies’ perspectives. My pregnancies have been pretty similar in the general sense – no nausea, no morning sickness, no swelling, no outrageous mood swings, no uncomfortable pains, etc…. I know, I’m aware that most people want to punch me in the face. But it’s true, I love being pregnant and I am soaking up these last couple months because I know this is my second and last pregnancy.
While my pregnancies have been relatively the same for me, I thought it would be fun to imagine them from my baby-in-the-womb’s perspective. Throughout my entire first pregnancy, we referred to the baby as Ziggy. This nickname was born early on in the pregnancy, from Ziggy the Zygote, before we even knew the gender. And up until the very day she was born, we referred to Zara as Ziggy throughout the entire 41+ weeks. We don’t have a cute nickname for this second one (poor 2nd child syndrome already), but he has been lovingly referred to as Baby Boy. So for the sake of this writing exercise, I am going to just refer to the two viewpoints as Girl and Boy.
