Aint Pregnancy Grand

Let’s talk about all the beautiful things I’ve experienced due to growing this little life:

  • I’m walking around with a belly the size of a soccer ball
  • I have this mysterious line that runs up and down from my belly button
  • If I bend over shortly after I eat, it brings up my food
  • I also have a 50/50 chance of feeling like my throat is on fire after I eat
  • Several pairs of undies are cutting off my circulation
  • My bras no longer fit correctly
  • I get up to pee at least 3 times a night
  • Controlling my bladder when I sneeze is now a challenge
  • I get to get on a scale and have my doctor tell my husband how much I weigh every four weeks

I hear people talk about how much they loved being pregnant… and those people puzzle me. I told a guy at work the other day that I was freaked by the whole thing. He thought I must not have grown up around little kids. Wrong! As the oldest child and grandchild, so there were lots of little ones around all my life. I’m not scared at all of the baby – Bring on the messy diapers, the spit up and all the other gross things that babies do. It’s not the taking care of baby that freaks me out, its the growing a baby part!! 😉 Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I know that it’s all very normal and blah, blah, blah. But really what gets me through it, is knowing that it’s all temporary (and if any of it’s not… now is not the time to tell me, OK??) and at the end of it I get my body back and get to have a baby. So it’s all very worth it… just very weird.
