37 weeks and impatiently waiting while on a semi-forced early maternity leave (I quit because they wouldn’t stop having me do things like unload truck and lift 50 pound boxes and I don’t have the money for a lawsuit!) I was reading an article imploring women not to try and induce labor themselves and think about all…
Last week Kim K admitted to not liking pregnancy and the Internet shit its collective pants. I’ve made a couple posts before about the taboo that exists around saying that you really aren’t enjoying the process of growing your delightful little bundle of DNA and poop.
This isn’t a fun pregnancy rant thread, just a general annoying to me one.

This is in my neck of the woods and where one of my little sibs go to high school.
But he’s a damn good partner a lot of the time.
This may be offensive.
So baby daddy and I have had a hell of a time picking out a girls name. We’ve agreed on a boys name, but the battle over girls name has been fierce.
Remember the friend drama I was having? I’m really to lazy to link it but it happened. She said some really shitty things. A few weeks later, she apologized and said how shitty it was of her to say those things especially while I’m pregnant.
I hate this attitude. HATE. I was just reading an article about a child pyschologist who doesn’t have kids who is told this on the regular. Because your million hours of internships and clinicals and with your face pressed to 8 different textbooks at once mean nothing.
Had a check up today with the baby doctor.
Trigger warning: violence, sexual harassment, bullying
I know you all are probably sick of this by now. I complain about my pregnancy a lot, and I’m going to continue doing so. Because I fucking feel like it.
First of all TMI, second of all, I’m sorry all of you hear my complaining about this subject. All. The. Time.
I went out to lunch with my best friend who was being terrible. She apologized and said that she was taking out a lot of her stress on me. Also once I got to be face to face to her and explain how I was feeling, she was a lot more empathetic and supportive. For example:
Yeah, yeah, pregnancy hormones mood swings blah blah thats why I’m miserable blah blah blah best time in my life and I’m not appreciating it blah blah blah.
I’m a day shy of being 13 weeks pregnant and had an ultrasound today. The first part of the appointment was a genetic counselor trying to scare me about fragile X syndrome because three of my family members have autism (all have been tested, none have Fragile X or chromosomal abnormalities).
The past few days I’ve felt absolutely terrible. My stomach has felt like it’s burning from the inside out, I’ve been puking, and trying to move is terrible. I went home from work early yesterday because it was absolutely unbearable.
Yeaaaaaaah, this friendship is over. Shut it down.
