I know, I know
Pregnancy is awesome.
I'm sure that when my little bundle of joy arrives, the things that currently suck will no longer suck.
But right now, there are just a few things about being pregnant that really suck.
And yes mom, I will continue to use the word "suck" because it best describes my feelings.
Yeah, apparently these fantastic hormones that make it possible to grow a baby also cause zits.
Last week, I had Mount Everest growing next to my nose.
This week, its on my chin.
Not only am I currently battling the mother of all zits, but there are bunches of smaller ones taking over my face.
2. Belly fat
Yeah, I knew when I got pregnant that my belly would get bigger.
I'm not dumb.
However, my belly is currently in an awkward phase.
You know...the one where you see someone with a pudgy belly and you have to ask yourself:
"Is she pregnant? Or just fat?"
Kind of annoying.
3. Feeling like crap
Yes, mother, I'm saying crap too.
I think feeling like crap is the worst part of being preggo.
In the beginning, I felt nauseous. All the time.
Doc gave me cute little pills to help me not feel nauseous.
They worked wonderfully.
Now, I don't really feel nauseous all the time.
I just feel crappy.
All. Day. Long.
I thought I was supposed to feel better in the 2nd tri.
Lies. All lies.
So, yeah. There are some things about being pregnant that just really suck.
But, you know what, some things are awesome.
Like, I heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time this past week.
That was pretty awesome.
Especially since sometimes I forget that I'm pregnant and worry that I made it all up.
But the baby is in there.
I heard it.
And next week, I'm going in for an ultrasound.
So I'll get to see the baby.
Doc said I might even find out if my baby likes pink or blue.
So that will be pretty awesome.
Oh, and I am now 16 weeks.
Which means this week my baby is 3 oz and about 4 or 5 inches.
In other words, the size of a tube of mascara.
