Let’s be honest, there are some pregnancy symptoms that I could do without. Sciatic nerve pain, dizziness, and bloody noses are right up there. But my top three complaints right now? Read on, my friends!
So far I have lost…
Concealer (recovered after 5 days; it was in Max’s slipper)
A tumbler at work…at least once a day
2. ROAD RAGE
Lord have mercy, I cannot keep it together in the car. Of course I do when I have Max (and Scott!). But when I’m alone…all bets are off.
This preggers gets ANGRY in the car when fellow drivers make bad decisions. And I don’t have to tell you, homeboys and girls are making bad decisions left and right.
No signal? COME ON!
Cutting me off? BEEEEEEP!
Riding my arse? TOUCHDOWN ARMS IN THE AIR!
Driving on the shoulder or in the merge/turning lane to get ahead? MIDDLE FINGER, IT IS!
I have zero patience.
Do you not know that I am growing a baby? Don’t mess around with my safety, jokers. Just don’t.
3. THE BRAIN THAT WON’T TURN OFF (see unrelated: THE PEEING)
I am constantly thinking about what needs to be done and what needs to be purchased and classes that need to be attended and decisions that need to be made – AHHHH!
Stress, stress, stress, stress, STRESS! And cupcakes. And potty breaks…LOTS of ’em.
Oh well! I am enjoying this pregnancy while it lasts. I am more than blessed to be experiencing this miracle for the second time…and I will NOT take it for granted. Embrace the crazy, I say!
