I'm annoyed that everyone keeps telling me I'm going to miss being pregnant. Maybe I will. But I just don't think I'm that type. I have had a completely problem-free pregnancy, BUT! I have been miserable since day 1. Morning sickness well through to late 2nd trimester sucked. And I'm very petite - 5'2", never weighed more than 98lbs, so this has been hell on my body. I have always indulged in fancy beer and good wine and I have missed it so much.
My body aches. I hate peeing every hour. I'm waddling. I feel ugly. I miss turning heads with the petite perfect body I used to have 40lbs ago. And most of all I'm SO TIRED of hearing my mother in law tell me how out of shape I am and that I'm going to have a hard time losing all the weight I've gained!
I want a baby. I've wanted a baby to have a baby, not to be pregnant. So I wish people would stop telling me I'm going to miss this. Not at one single point in time have I said "I LOVE BEING PREGNANT" or "I LOVE HOW I LOOK/FEEL WITH THIS BABY INSIDE OF ME." But I just keep hearing, "this is the quietest your baby will ever be. This is this most behaved he'll ever be. You're going to wish he was back inside of you when you're up all night with a wailing child." blah blah blah. No, really, I want to be up all night with a wailing child. I want a baby. I don't want to be pregnant anymore. My body is so tired!
I know there are women who love this experience. And I'm honestly envious of them, cause I wish I could feel a little happier with the whole thing but I'm simply not one of them. I'm so, so, so ready for this to be over and to have my little man in my arms and curled up against my body rather than in it. Yes, it's miraculous. Yes, it's part of the process. Yes, it's definitely an experience like no other. But I'm absolutely satisfied to have it overwith now.
I am so moody today.
