As much as I’m enjoying the aspect of me introducing a new one into the world, this pregnancy has done little more than to make me want to crawl up in a ball and cry. It’s bad enough that the pregnancy has made me tired, completely screwed my digestive system, gave me the worst acne of my life and made me physically ill for much of it, people, friends and strangers seem to feel the need to remind me of each part of me that’s different.

Get a couple new pimples “wow, she’s really messing with your hormones.” Not sleep well, “man, you look tired.”. Feel swollen, “your face is getting really round.”

Do people think before they speak? Am I supposed to feel better after someone makes the comment? Am I supposed to smile, explain, cry? Cause with hormones raging, I really want to cry and hide from people.
