baby welch: memoirs of a pregnant woman.

pregnancy took me by surprise. you'd think with 3 sisters and 2 sister in laws, I'd have a clue-but it's totally different when it happens to you!

you know you're pregnant when...
  • you run through your feeds on Pinterest, Instagram, and FB hoping not to catch a glimpse of food
  • you run through the grocery store barely looking up at your list, afraid you might see something that makes you gag
  • you discover acne in the oddest places, like your armpit for example...
  • you cry at commercials 
  • you smell yourself so that you don't have to smell your surroundings
  • you are so nervous to go to work in the fear that you might throw up on a child
  • you can't sleep for no apparent reason
  • you sleep 12 hours and don't feel a tad guilty about it
  • you google every bodily function
  • you think that people who post pictures of their food on insta and FB are cruel
  • you are bugged by the: "were you trying?" question. k, let's talk about this common phrase used after you tell someone you're expecting. if you had been trying for a while-touchy subject. if you WEREN'T trying? touchier subject. i admit, i am not either of these, but what a personal question! I wonder why it's become such a common follow-up.
  • you clean the toilet in anticipation of your head being in it, throwing up, a couple minutes later
  • you finally understand exactly what those sick people, with the popped bubbles over their heads in comic strips felt like:
