|Lady Jr is a real human being:
I gained 32 pounds.
I went up two cup sizes and two band sizes.
I went up one shoe size (arguably half a size, but we’ll see).
I didn’t get stretch marks.
I never threw up (okay once in my mouth a little).
I went from squatting 165# to 45#.
I only had a few cravings in the first trimester, the weirdest of which was fried chicken wings.
My belly button stayed in, albeit stretched.
My wedding ring came off around 30 weeks.
Highest highs: The return of a feeling of normalcy in the second trimester.
Lowest lows: The unflagging nausea and fatigue in the first trimester.
Would I do it again? Hell no. Just don’t ask a year from now, kay?
Honestly, I had a really good, lucky pregnancy. There were some hard parts, but they could (usually) be measured in days. I had a fast and safe, if insane, labor. No complications, no high blood pressure, no GD – I am counting all my lucky stars and thanking the universe for each one.
And now for the next adventure: parenthood.
