Ok so, I gained 20lbs, half of it being my ***. I burp, I fart, I have crusty bloody nose every morning. My heartburn is so bad that I feel like a fire breathing dragon. I have acne on my face, chest, back, and stomach. My hummingbird belly button tattoo is beginning to look like a bald eagle. My thighs have dimples in them, my gums bleed. I can't see my feet anymore, among other things that probably really need to be shaved. My back aches, my feet throb. If you piss me off you better run, because I will tear my shirt, turn green, and start smashing. My nipples itch so bad, despite the aloe Vera. I have such a bad rash between my boobs I have to put baby powder or desitin in my bra. Also baby powder between my thighs or else that is a hot mess. I pee my pants all day. If I forget to wear a panty liner I'm screwed. I'm either completely constipated or have a horrible tummy ache and can't stop pooping. And to really put the icing on the cake, I'm pretty sure I have a hemorroid


But, the wonderful thing is, I'm going to have a baby

That is my post for the day. Have a good one everybody!!!

For me, that was my pregnancy with my son! Don't get me wrong, I had my fair share of disgustingness with DD but it was nothing compared to pregnancy #2! Every awful thing that they warn you about during pregnancy, I had. This time I haven't had it too bad...yet!

Oh yeah I forgot one! I can't be around anything breakable. I knocked over my MIL's favorite glass snowman and his head fell off. I hid it in my purse so I could fix it and put it back before she noticed. Then yesterday I hear her say, "hey, where the heck is my snowman?" So I had to fess up. At least she laughed.

I am wondering if it has to do with being preg with a son too. With DD my skin was the best ever...same with my hair i didnt have gas and I was so graceful. With this one my skin is a hot mess my hair is greasy as a darn teenagers even washing it everyday it looks like i havent showered in weeks. I fart constantly and Im like a darn bull in a china shop and I am an emotional wreck. Bawling over everything...everything!!!!! And I am exhausted...constantly! ( Heartburn hasnt kicked in yet but I didnt with DD til further along too.So its coming soon Im sure.

I have to admit I laughed out loud when I read this.I promise in the end it will all be worth it!
pS It was not the insensitive type of laugh... it was 'oh the joys of pregnancy' chuckle

Try a humidifier for your bloody nose. It works for me. It should help with your dry skin too.

I just simply sat here and nodded along with pretty much everything you wrote. Apparently I had forgotten all these joys in the last 7 years, but they've come glaring back now! lol

But, of course, so totally worth it in the end.

Oh my...I admit to chuckling too...but totally in a I know your pain girl!! With my son I gained weight right off the bat...I could look at food and BAM, 10 pounds on me! My skin was horrid and with the acne I started breaking out in dry spots around my nose so bad they would crack and bleed. Sexy, I know, don't be jealous! I had bad gas with him too, holy geezus, it would surprise me!! O_O I have heartburn with this baby too, but it seemed more intense with DS or maybe my eating habits are just different so its not affecting me as bad. But there nonetheless.

Just wait til baby is in arms and then this hideous time will be forgotten and instead all you'll remember is sparkles and rainbows ;-)

This sounds a lot like my first pregnancy. The only redeeming point was that I was never nauseated, but my goodness I was a hot (fire breathing) mess by the end of the pregnancy. She was my January baby and I'm pretty sure I gave up shaving my legs by Thanksgiving. I couldn't see them so why bother
