Looking Back at the First Trimester
Let me just tell ya, the first trimester (for me) was anything but feminine. If you're super lady like, I'd skip over the whole pregnancy thing. Constant burping, gas, constipation, gagging, upchucking, acid reflux....sounds hot right? (There is only so much you can blame on the dog). I was one of the unlucky ones plagued with
unbearable, god awful, horrific pretty bad morning sickness (all day sickness, rather). For the most part, I was in my bathrobe, un-showered, in bed, groaning and/or crying and looking very, very pathetic. When women would say, "I just loved being pregnant, don't you just love being pregnant?" I'm sure my eyes could've shot darts. There are books that tell you about this stuff once you're pregnant, but it's not knowledge you really seek out prior to getting pregnant, therefore not really discussed. Speaking of stuff people don't discuss, did you known the average woman is actually pregnant for 10 months? Whaaaa??? How did I not know this? What was the craziest thing you found out when you were pregnant?
