Ahhhh Pregnancy, such a beautiful thing right? Everyone talks about how oh your glowing! You look amazing! your not that big! really now??
When lets get real here.. your sweating like a pig, even feel like one, and your hormones are making you snort like one to. Am I right?? Well I’m here to get down to the Nitty Gritty of my pregnancy experience.. here’s how my pregnancy looked..
SPOILER!! I was NOT healthy threw most of my pregnancy.. I mean were honest here right?? well those pregnancy cravings aint no joke!!
My diet mainly consisted of hot cheetos and spicy lays potato chips, but as you can see the first about month I was on a “diet” of ginger ale, ginger snaps, annnnnnnd.. you see there hidden in the basket? Yup!! You guessed it.. MORE Hot Cheetos.
There are so many things people dont tell you when your pregnant. I mean there are the common things.. you know all the jokes about barfing, waddling, and eating pickles with ice cream?
That’s all fine and dandy, but what about the things NO ONE wants to talk about.. such as your boobs are so sore even showering is a struggle, you can count running without peeing on yourself out, or the fact your hormones rule the world and you may cry at those baby clothes you spot at target.. but its alright just BELIEVE ME.. its completely normal.
I will be completely honest, I didnt really enjoy being pregnant. I had about 2 months were I really enjoyed it, and while everyone kept telling me I would miss it when it was done, (so I better enjoy it) my thought was HA! YOUR CRAZY!!
Now that its all done though and my son is almost 2 months now I have to say I DEFINITELY miss feeling his fluttering kicks.
I did have a wonderful pregnancy while also a kinda terrible on if you catch my drift.. despite the tedious wonders of a changing body that included but not limited to: hair falling out, sweating profusely, crying, getting angry, easily winded, and swolen feet.
It also included the miracle of a life my husband and I created which included but wasnt limited to: that first sight of the little blob, the sound of his heart beat, the feeling of his kicks, the intense emotions towards my growing son and my husband.
Lastly the constant support of GOD walking me threw the process… I swear he would tell me “Oh quit your whining, your gonna want another one when you see what I have in store for you.” And lets be honest… he was right.. in fact EVERYONE was.. Pregnancy is a miracle.. and despite the nitty gritty not so glamorous parts.. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.. and a BADASS!! ;D
