When Pregnancy Doesn't Suck

I've been pretty vocal lately about the miseries of pregnancy (click HERE and HERE to be bogged down with complaints), but when it's not absolutely awful, it really is kind of awesome.

I mean think about it, you are growing an actual human person inside of your body.  That person could grow up to be a ballerina, an accountant, a douche bag, a teacher, or anything really.  The possibilities are endless.  It's really something to think about that you will be, in part, responsible for who that tiny life grows up to be.  Your choices will shape it's future.  That is both amazing and terrifying.

Feeling that life inside you kick and poke and prod you, even when it's painful, for me, is the best part of pregnancy.  There's something special to be said about the fact that right now this baby is solely mine.  I mean I know it's obviously Andy's too (or maybe Steve Buscmei's), but right now I don't have to share the baby with anyone.

So while I have been, and will continue to be, a complaining pregnant lady, it's obviously all worth it and a very magical and miraculous time.

And the best part...people don't judge you for eating a lot.  In fact, they bring you food and insist that you sit down, rest and eat it.  And you don't have to suck in your stomach.  Now if only they could find a way for pregnant women to get wasted I'd be a whole lot more on board.

Hahaha, I freakin' love you. I hope they find that for you.

Pregnancy is scary but raising children is more scary aha. It's just so freaky that I will (in many years) be in charge of a WHOLE HUMAN LIFE. I could turn it into something amazing or something horrifying. It freaks me the hell out!

Do you even realize how funny you are?? Seriously, I can't stop laughing. "Douch bag" - "finding a way to get wasted" - BWA HA HA! You're my fave. :-)

Can't complain about my pregnancy. It was a little scary at first, given it was a total shock, as we weren't even supposed to be able to get pregnant! But it's been smooth sailing until a week and a half ago when I had to go on bedrest due to high blood pressure issues. Monday we go in for a c section (at 37 weeks, 4 days). I'm a nervous wreck about the surgery and terrified of being a good mom. No turning back now :) As my husband says, "There's no return policy." Lol.
