The Horrors of My Pregnancy

Growing up I’ve always heard women speaking about how wondering being pregnant was for them and how much they loved it. Well my friends, they lied!

I am here to tell you I am NOT one of those women. Let me start from the beginning:

I found out I was pregnant at exactly 6 weeks, which made sense to me because my nipples were hard 24/7 – not normal for me. Within the next two weeks – BAMM ! The morning sickness started, (which in my opinion should be called whenever sickness) and I was throwing up ALL day! “It will go away after your 4th month.” they told me. THEY LIED!


I am now 8 months pregnant and I have been hugging my toilet all day today. I went from vomiting all day, to just the night-time, to now just good ol’ morning sickness! Things seemed to easy up in my second trimester, it was so nice. But nothing I tried seem to stop the vomiting , no crackers , ginger ale , tea , etc.

Just when I thought I was in the clear the pregnancy honeymoon (2nd trimester) ended, I am now in my third trimester…. oh man is all I have to say. The horror of trimester number three is true, all I can think about is labor and how the time is ticking and my solitary will soon be gone for ever. Lets not forget to mention the insomnia – I haven’t slept in days! I spend my nights tossing and turning trying to find a comfortable position without laying on my bladder because that’s is the baby’s job after all, and we can’t leave her bored. I use the bathroom every 30 minutes  insert calculation of how much toilet paper is being used). And how can I forget the heart burn , OMG the heart burn! I thought I was in the clear with that at least, I thought wrong.  I went my whole pregnancy without it and until a few weeks ago when it decided to sneak up on me like a Jedi. I gave up on shoes with laces and forget about getting out of bed. I have to push myself off of the wall just go pee in the middle of the night. And shaving is a mission in its self.


But my biggest issues in my third trimester are the thirst and hunger! I feel like a hybrid between a vampire and werewolf,  I just want to eat and drink everything in sight. RIP to my bank account (it been emptied by late night food cravings and toilet paper).

I do apologize for the ranting session, it must be the Taurus in me. But the truth is I will go fight through all of these pregnancy issues and do all over again for my baby girl. I cannot wait to meet her, in the end she is worth every single struggle!
