i hate being pregnant and i wish it would end.
i’m nearly 37 weeks. I’m so close, but it doesn’t feel like there’s an end in sight. people love to say ‘pregnancy is beautiful’. whoever said that is a liar.
no one understands what you’re going through. you’re looked at as hormonal, dramatic and emotional. no one understands that your body is no longer yours, you don’t feel like yourself, you feel left out, your body won’t ever be the same, you have to go through a life-altering event just to get it over with.
the anxiety of hoping your baby is okay. the restrictions of your movements. the list of food that you’re not allowed to eat. it is never ending.
i feel like people only see the surface. the baby shower, gender reveal and bump pictures. but it’s so much more than that.
i HATE being pregnant. i truly do. i’m excited for my baby, but i want to feel like myself again. it’s almost over for me, but i know i won’t be the same after this experience. if you feel this way, please know you’re not alone.
- The best is when people say “sleep now while you can.” It’s damn near impossible to sleep well with this freeloader that’s smashing your bladder flat while simultaneously kicking you in your cervix.
