My Snarky Pregnancy: Weird Pregnancy Symptoms
Some things you expect. Others come out of nowhere. There is something both beautifully empowering and totally humiliating about pregnancy. Your body changes into a voluptuous, slightly lumpy, less toned version of what you once were and yet you feel somehow, a little bit, once and a while, pretty beautiful. And it isn’t just the huge boobs that make you feel that way. Then there are the less glamorous parts.
Discharge, weird aches and pains, sciatica and the fact that you perpetually look like you have just consumed 12 pints of beer and a cheeseburger. Not so cool. Interestingly, you can actually have mornings when your stomach is relatively flat. Your abs are still visible and your body seems almost normal. But the moment you consume anything. ANYTHING. It is like your stomach is trying to prove to the world that you are nourishing yourself. A lot. Then to make up for the expanded, swollen and extremely gassy belly, you awkwardly rub your stomach, hoping that this is the universal symbol for "I'm pregnant."
