Last week was 11 weeks.
you know how when you dream about being pregnant and having babies that all you think about is the bliss?
The exciting belly.
The little kicks.
The funny food cravings
and of course the darling little baby!
Well, I've been struggling with realizing that this was all I really thought about before too. I didn't really think about the hard stuff and I don't feel like many women talk about it that much.
Most of what I heard before getting pregnant was about how
and exciting everything is.
People forgot to tell me that it also kind of stinks. People forgot to tell me that you barf a lot. That the foods that you ate forever no longer taste good. That you sleep all the time. But when you do sleep you wake up to pee a lot and you're not that comfortable. That you're moody and sad and life is hard.
So, women of the world that are thinking about being pregnant someday: know that that is a reality. I am telling you now. (And when you need to vent, feel free to complain in my ear).
That being said, I am still very much in love with our future swiftlet, even though its only really the size of a small plum. I can't wait to meet the little him or her and I know that he or she will bring lots of joy to our lives. But even so, it's hard.
Just so you know.
