Right now I know some pregnant people.
And other people are lying to them.
" I loved being pregnant."
"Greatest feeling in the world."
" As soon as the baby is born, you forget the pain."
" After the baby is here, there is only joy."
Maybe some people loved being pregnant, but EVERYONE says that.
I can not be the only person on the planet that hated it.
Your boobs hurt.
You get strange pains everywhere.
Hard to turn over.
You get so big, you can't see your feet and you can no longer get next to a counter.
It's been 17 years and I am telling you, I remember the pain.
I remember being in labor and telling my husband that I don't know why I wanted to do this.
I remember having trouble sitting comfortably for over a month after birth.
Does that sound like joy?
Sure, I love my kid.
But, I didn't love feeling like something was sitting on my abdomen all the time.
I didn't love not being able to take deep breaths.
Being a parent is truly a feeling like no other.
But, being pregnant is no walk in the park.
