Might Even Have Hemmroids

How many times have you asked a pregnant lady "How are you feeling?" I am sure that you hear more often than not "Good."


This is what she* is not telling you:

She has a rash somewhere.

Somewhere, a piece of her clothing doesn't fit. It could be her bra, underpants, shoes or pants.

She's hungry.

She can't think straight.

Her boobs hurt.

She has heartburn.

Her digestive system is very slooooooooooooooooooow.

She is very tired.

She isn't sleeping well.

Standing isn't much fun either.

Her feet are swollen by the end of the day.

Her back hurts.

She has to pee.

She is nauseous.

She feels very fat and balance is an issue.

She is hungry and needs to eat NOW.

So next time you ask how a pregnant lady how she is feeling, know that she is lying and tell her that she is "all baby" and "hardly showing at all." At least you will both be lying and you'll both feel better after the conversation.

Indy doesn't claim to have any or all of these joys of pregnancy. Well, at least not all at the same time. And please don't feel like you can't ask how I am feeling. Just saying....

Oh no.

I am the one that totally asked you at preschool drop off this morning, "How are you feeling?" Heh. Had no idea your boobs hurt.

Now that I am pregnant myself, I forgot what I had to look forward too. *wink*

Like I said, I don't have all of these. Boobs don't hurt today. And no hemmroids either. Ha!

i so love this post. I can feel everyone of those things. what gets me is when someone doesn't have the good sense or grace to tell me I look like I'm all baby, etc. cuz really, when I feel like crap the last thing I need to hear is how I look like i'm carrying twins!!!

I'm Not Talking About It, I'm Just Saying...
