Ok, I am usually the one to say that every pregnant woman is beautiful and has that glow. They are carrying life and that says it all.Well, here is one pregnant woman, who doesn't feel so pretty. Where is my glow? I do have pimples in odd places. Is that a glow? I've always had clear skin and now my chin has decided to make haven for clogged pours and sprouting hair. My shoulders and back have clusters and I even found one on my thigh. I have these little pieces of skin on my upper eyelid (like a skin tag) it looks like a tiny crumb on my eye, but you can't brush it off. I got skin tags on my arm pits and when I shave they come off and I am left with bloody pits that sting when I put deodorant on. Not so good.
Hopefully, I haven't repulsed anyone now. Hopefully, I've gotten some "me too's". In any case, it is strange to not freak out as I would were I not pregnant. If I weren't pregnant, I might apply for an episode of Extreme Makeover, the lipo, the skin repair, laser hair removal - the works.
Oh! Grey hair too. The other day my husband pulled out about 3 gray hairs. Actually, white hairs. It's just great how endearing he thinks it is. I wish I could share that same enthusiasm for my transforming figure.
I do love seeing my tummy get bigger, though clothes can still be a bit frustrating. Praise maternity clothes and panels! Those stretchy panels are so wonderful I night just wear them for the duration of my life. Pulling up pants and never worrying about a button or snap is so satisfying.
I am feeling really good. My chest is not so sore anymore and I have increased 2 bra sizes already. As has my butt. Not really having any weird cravings.
There is big news. My friend had her sweet baby boy
and he is just precious. I held him and changed his
diaper and he was just a little bundle of sleepy
bliss. It just makes me all that more excited to hold
our little muffin!
