… pulling out of the driveway of a diner where you just had the biggest breakfast imaginable and wondering whether there are any snacks in the car.
… being exhausted all day long and finally getting into bed only to find that you can’t fall asleep no matter what you do.
… finally getting a moment to sit on the couch and relax only to have the baby decide that it’s the perfect time to practice her somersaults.
… peeing, pulling your pants back up, fixing the elastic waist of the d**m pants again, walking out of the bathroom and having to turn right around to do it all over again.
… realizing that you haven’t felt the baby move in a while and having your heart stop beating during the time it takes you to down a huge glass of water to wake her up.
… fixing yourself the exact same lunch that you’ve craved for the last four months only to find that today, for no good reason, it makes you want to hurl.
… watching VISA commercials and sobbing like a baby.
And last but not least
… walking out of your toddler’s room at 3am after she’s thrown up for the fourth time in three hours, washing your hands extra carefully because she used them as a receptacle, running a second load of laundry, and thinking to yourself “wow, I am starving!”
What has pregnancy meant for you?
