Pros and Cons
Pregnancy brings with it a lot of exciting emotions and changes. It also brings some things that are, quite frankly, a bit of a bitch. Here, for your reading pleasure, are my pregnancy pros and cons.
Pro: My hair has never been thicker.
Con: That includes the hair on my chin.
Pro: My face looks great. So smooth, little to no breakouts, and it’s as soft as a baby’s butt.
Con: The rest of my body is a dry, scaly mess!
Pro: Bigger girls.
Con: Painful girls.
Pro: Because I’m creating a life, I have free reign to nap whenever I want and go to bed as early as I please.
Con: At least once during the night, I have to get up to pee.
Pro: Strong, long nails.
Con: Nails that are so sharp I cut myself scratching the aforementioned dry, scaly legs.
Pro: Getting to shop for a new wardrobe.
Con: Discovering that even maternity clothes are made for stick-thin girls with no hips. Hello, I’ve got an extra person going on here!
Pro: Weird, vivid dreams.
Con: The inability to post them here, because some of them are a little dirty and my mom reads this! (Don’t worry, Mom, at least they all involve Ricky!)
Pro: Massive excitement over meeting this new little life.
Con: Absolute terror that I am responsible for this little life. Who thought this was a good idea?
