The Unexpected

With pregnancy I knew I was in it for the long haul including tiredness, naps, irritability, odd cravings, constipation, less patience, and more aches and pains.  I didn't know I opted in for a few other things.

HOT FLASHES - I thought this was reserved until I go through "the change."

SNOT - More than I can feasibly explain.

BLOODY NOSES - undoubtedly due to the amount of snot, thus more blowing.

A FEELING OF BEING KICKED IN THE VAGINA!  Yes, for the last 3 weeks I feel like someone (I have a hunch of who) just booted me in the lady bits!  Don't get me wrong, I was perfectly anticipating this feeling but thought it would coincide with an arrival of a baby. (During my doc visit this week (week 37) I learned the little one has dropped a bit which might explain the lovely feeling.)

BURPS -  A lot of unexpected ones, a lot of hurtful ones (citrus be gone), ones I can't get rid of until I move b/c my innards have shifted and it takes some wiggling and adjustments to find their escape.

CURSING THE BABY KICKS - I loved when I first felt the baby move, now with it's forcefulness I want to kick it right back.
PROPOSITIONING THE PEDICURE LADY - I was so grateful when she put on my shoes and tied them that I asked if she was willing to come home with me!

GETTING HIT ON - Hi, I feel like an overstuffed turkey, I didn't know classified existed for "Men seeking Pregnant."


  1. You're making so excited to be pregnant one day.

  2. I never heard about those things either...yay

  3. Sorry, I don't mean to make it sound AWFUL, because it really isn't all bad - just things I didn't expect! At least it's only a few months of your life, then it all goes back to normal!
