Co's friend Rita is a Liar

I just have to tell you all this, pregnancy is not super great and fabulous.
Oh no, it is not.
Is it magical. Yes
Is it really awesome to feel the baby move. Yes
Is it an experience I want to do again. I am looking into the surrogate mother thing. And if saying that makes me a bad mom before my daughter is even born, so be it. I won't lie to you people!
I wake up every night at least five times with intense pain in my hips. I woke up hubby last night cause I was whimpering.
Mom says its cause my hips are spreading for the birth.
Like my ass getting big isn't enough, it gets to be accompanied by pain, suffering and sleep deprivation.
Also, why can't maternity clothes makers design shirts with full sleeves?
We are pregnant.
Everything is bigger.
Those tiny non sleeves are uncomfortable and show our flabby arms!!!
Lastly, the swelling has happened.
And that is all I will say about that.

(Don't get me wrong people, I am thrilled to be having this baby!)

I know how you feel with the pregnancy pains. The best way that helped me was going to the chiropractor. They make sure that you stay in alignment so that there is min. pain. Plus, they say it helps with the labor and delivery. I didn't get it done with my first and the labor was 26 hrs, 2 of them pushing. I went with my second one and the labor was cut in half and I hardly had any pushing time at all. So, if you are in that much pain, I would suggest it.

Ah, yes, being prego has always sounded super fun to me. But, you are a trooper. Every Mom says it's worth it and you forget all this later =)

I know...I'm so sorry. I watched Katie go through all this...not to mention all the other icky things that happen that no one ever talks about. Have you read Jenny McCarthy's book "Belly Laughs" ?

Katie said...

I remember all of that and more.
Pluse no matter what any1 says nothing makes you fell better.
But in the end after all the FUN you will look in to that babies eyes and 4get every bit of it.

Well you look fab in your pic though. I dont see any of the 'side effects' of pregnancy you mentioned. And you are almost through. Just hang in there.

enjoy it
apart from the pain...that'd be just weird!

Natalia said... know I don't want children. Pregnancy is bad enough but then you have to change your whole life and priorities and be chained to this needy human being for life.

BUT you are actually looking forward to the this is just the work for the payoff for you.

Still...I feel you. :( I hope the pains go away soon.

Your hips are spreading?? That sounds painful, and scary....and another reason that I might not want to have kids. I dont want my bones spreading. Yikes.
