These Are a Few of My (not so) Favorite Things.....

Just had to rant a little bit over the joys of pregnancy. Like I've said, I love being pregnant, but I'm not in love with it. I'm still confused as to how anyone could be besides the fact they are having a baby. Maybe I'm just in too much pain!

1) Monthly PMS for nine months of weeping
I swear, I cry even more now at Hallmark commercials than I did before

2) If my boobs get any bigger, I can use them as floating devices- well, make that my entire body. I'm a buoy now

3) Lacy thongs for cotton tents- seriously! You can't make pregnancy lingerie sexy, so really, why try!


4) Sex for gas- I'm competing with my dog and my husband. Nice!


5) Can't take Advil, etc....but sure to take Benefiber in the morning

6) My lower back pain hurting sooooo bad, I'm almost convinced Davis is trying to find a way out back there

7) Taking walks around the neighborhood, I have my hands up in the air sometimes because I can feel my fingers starting to swell. Sure that looks interesting. Especially since I'm carrying no weights.

8) Trade sleeping for groaning. My 'Snoogle' pillow helps, but it doesn't work miracles.

9) My belly button is almost gone. I never thought I would have to wonder if I would have an outie. Now I'll have the belly, fat feet, hands, and belly button of a Cabbage Patch Kid!

10)Kickboxing for kick counts. I can barely get my leg up to kick the bag and even yoga is out of the question these days.

I'm sure I could keep going :)

That being said, I really hope he doesn't decide to keep on baking in there weeks after his due date!! But we can't wait though and are sooooooooo excited!!!

Oh I completely sympathize. I hated being pregnant. Loved the idea and feeling the baby move, but didn't like everything else. It's worth it though...hang in.

By the way you and your honey are adorable. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you come back:)

Ah, the joys of pregnancy. It's weird to say that I can't wait until my time comes...however 9 MONTHS?! I've hardly made it through one week of discomfort, jeesh!

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I read the "things you should never say/ do to a pregnant woman" and couldn't agree more. I am yet to be a mommy but I KNOW already that I will be SO sick of people's unsolicited advice. I am annoyed just thinking about it!

Heather said...

Listen, I am right there with you! I was pregnant last summer, so anxious...and it's the craziest experience. Mostly just uncomfortable. A few moments that make you pause and bond with your ever growing belly. The attention is fun sometimes too, but then again sometimes not. Women that say pregnancy is the most amazing thing ever, they lie.

I will say though that in the end you will cherish it, especially when that little guy is born. Enjoy it all!

I know exactly what you mean! I absolutely hated being pregnant and hated when people told me to enjoy it while I can because I will miss it. The nine months of torture is all worth it in the end.

FYI I don't miss being pregnant.
