Why I love being pregnant for the 4th time January 19, 2015

Avery and Brady horrifiedIn keeping with my silver lining, pot of gold at the end of the rainbow personality, I’ve come up with all the reasons why I love being pregnant for the 4th time.

Ahem. So here they are:

1. People stop offering you pregnancy advice, because you’ve doubled down on the number of pregnancies most women endure.

2. I know how to handle stupid questions. “So will this be the last one?” “I don’t think so. Wouldn’t half a dozen kids look so much better on our Christmas cards?”

3. I don’t give a rats ass if I am already “showing”. No need to squish myself into my jeans for the sake of trying to not look pregnant. I bought a 3-pack of XL leggings from Meijer about 4 weeks ago.

4. I have 3 other little people who get to be amazed by my growing belly. Really, what I mean is, I’m so goddamn busy that time is flying by!

5. My midwife doesn’t even want to see me for like 6 more weeks. I’m an old pro.

6. I know how to work the system. People will go out of their way to help a pregnant lady. I exploit them constantly.

7. I can pretty much make up any pregnancy rule I see fit, and people will believe me. “Oh, I actually can’t unload the dishwasher. All that trunk flexion puts too much strain on my uterus.”

In all seriousness, I love being pregnant. Sure, I could do without the constant nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, back zits and bloating. But hey. I’m a beautiful vessel of life who can’t unload the dishwasher, remember?
