in case you were on the fence about whether or not to have another kid... maybe i can shed some light on the situation for you.
since i'm a naturally a cynical optimist, i'll start with pros.
- hall pass to eat whatever you want- guilt free (unless you go to my midwives)
-not having to work-out for 10 months if you don't want to
- people in general are very nice to pregnant women- they open doors, and just smile at you. or yell "you're awesome!" while getting in the pool at the gym.
-there's nothing quite like feeling your baby move- like
-ahem- a definitely increased libido- ahem
-and while we're on the topic--- big boobs (not yet full of milk)
-witnessing your daughters sheer joy in knowing that god is giving her a sister
-little tiny pink onesies
-feeling hungover for a good 6 weeks to start
-the in-between time when people aren't sure if you're pregnant and just think you are getting fat
-all the tests and procedures-- worrying if your baby is healthy
-all those comments... you know the ones.
-get this thing out of me. NOW. feeling sooooo done.
-umm, labor and delivery.
-feeling crazy in your head
-pee. ALL THE TIME
-i could really use a drink
hmm, looks like cons outweigh the pros... but did i mention, that in about a months time i, lord willingly, will have in my arms a living miracle? yeah, i'm pretty sure that blows doors on any con....
