i know i sent this to a few of you already this week via picture text message, but i still can't get over it. first of all, i think it's great to jot down your whole pregnancy experience, but maybe i can't grapple all of this since i didn't know i was pregnant for a long time (aka: i didn't feel any different). and we didn't tell our family until i was at least 3 months along, and didn't break the news to everyone else until i was close to 20 weeks. the only thing i noticed initially before i found out i was pregnant was that it felt like someone had sucker-punched me right in the boobs, and a part of me firmly believed that this was a sign that i was finally going through that much anticipated stage of puberty every jr. high girl hopes for (read: flatgirlproblems).
let me break it down for you:
56 glasses of water:
that's normal. actually, everyone should be drinking that much water because it's healthy for you.
53 hours of sleep:
obviously this chick doesn't watch dateline.
35 trips to the bathroom:
16 days 'til news breaking:
would make you at 6.5 weeks along; still seems too soon to me
14 days until ultrasound:
your baby will look like genetic goop.
9 names discussed:
well, who doesn't love talking about baby names?
6 mood swings:
honey, don't blame it on the hormones...you's clearly a (cough*b#*%h*cough)
4 hours working on baby's room:
and etc. etc. etc.
bottom line, i just think it's too soon to be this over-zealous (but that's just me).
(and you guys too, right?!)
2. lose body fat while you're pregnant
every book i have read so far (ok...i've only read one, and i'm only on chapter two) has said that the worst thing you can do while pregnant is try to lose any body weight/fat. i commend any women who CAN exercise and eat right whilst knocked up, but i have not been able to do either and honestly...i don't feel guilty about it at all. of course i've tried to get the proper nutrients in my system for my little womb-mate (see what i did there?) but if i want that second (or third) piece of cake by golly i'm going to eat it! nobody feels great pregnant...but are we really that selfish that we'll deprive our baby of the much needed cushion it requires to grow and function properly?
