It started out as small changes.
Fingernails growing thicker, hair sprouting from spots on my head, even my toes appearing longer. Each day that went by I noticed one small change. I contemplated telling someone but I soon realized no one can hear me. Screaming as loud as I can and all I hear in return is the sound of my own blood, gushing throughout my veins. A part of me settled on the fact that I was growing, as a healthy human would. The other part of me could tell that my body, was no longer mine.
I can't keep track of time anymore, all I know is that I can feel the movement now. My eyelids were stretching over my eyeballs. Even my bones could be heard squeaking and stretching with each centimeter they gained. My heart rate gradually increasing, my skin multiplying.
I'm now convinced that I'm dying. I decided that I'll die alone, in the comfort of solitude and darkness of my own home.
In the midst of my sleep, I suddenly wake, thrashing and kicking the walls around as I swear they're closing and contracting onto me. I am in a haze, is this real? I'm overcome with a loud sound, almost a human scream. I see a bright light; which is unusual as I hardly see any light anymore. I somehow know that this is the end for me, but I'm content. I'm happy to see the end of my growth. I want to cry, but again I am not able. The light grows stronger...brighter. The sound is closer. I prepare for my end and shut my eyes.
After fighting for what seemed like an eternity, im able to scream and cry. I feel my lungs take a deep breath of air, rushing through my body.The light overhead is now comforting, warming. I decided to see myself, how big I've become. Just as I start to move I hear a large voice speak, "6 Pounds, 4 ounces. A healthy baby boy."
