Sometimes being pregnant feels so inhuman. When I’m spawning something inside of me, being the carrier of new life, it almost feels like I’m more animal than human. At least it’s not my instinct to eat the placenta. I told the nurse she could take Silas’ home and make soup out of it but she declined my offer. I don’t know why a completely natural thing, when thought about hard enough, feels completely unnatural. I’m a beast!! Some women attribute it to feeling alien and I get that too, more like aliens have taken over. I guess that being pregnant is very animalistic though. We’re creating more life to further our species. Just like every other animal does. That’s all I have to talk about today.
