Crazy Pregnancy Things

My pregnancy journey has been a beautiful one. I’ve had moments where I started stressing out about being able to take care of my child as a single parent at 25, to stressing about if my child would find me funny. I am someone who over thinks and tries to plan everything, so this journey has been very interesting. No one could’ve every prepared me for this and no amount of stories could help me understand the changes that your body goes through. I’ve decided to share some of the things I’ve experienced while being being pregnant with you. So, make sure you check it out below.

  1. No one told me that my belly would prevent me from seeing my lady parts: Whenever I look down, all I see is my belly and there isn’t a way to move it out the way. I find it hilarious when I’m trying to figure out how to shave. It’s nearly impossible and I’m going to have to invest in getting waxed soon.
  2. My hormones have increased a ton: I’ve heard stories about people hormones decreasing and not wanting to think about sex. However, my hormones have been the opposite. I think about sex often, but have no desire to be touched. It helps that I am single and have no need to be involved with anyone. So, I just keep my mind busy.
  3. My back aches: I’ve always had horrible back problems and my pregnancy has made it worse! I find myself sleeping in strange positions to alleviate some of the pain.
  4. I was told I’d have strange cravings: I was told that I’d eat weird combinations of food. However, the only thing I want is beef. I eat so much beef, I think I’m going to turn into one if I don’t stop.
  5. I was told I’d eat more food: Truth is, I don’t. I only eat when I’m hungry and I never get full. It’s very strange. I still eat about 6 times a day, but I am never full. I thought I would eat everything and all day, but I don’t. I guess it’s a good thing because I won’t gain more weight than needed.

Those are just the top 5 things I’ve noticed during my pregnancy. It’s has been a beautiful experience and I’m enjoying my daughter kicks/punches. I find her to be extremely funny and I can only imagine what joy she will bring to my life when our eyes meet.

Until next time xoxo

  1. Just found your blog and subscribed! I have a near 14 year old child now but I can still remember my pregnancy like it was yesterday (where did that time go??!) It sounds like you’re taking it all in stride and doing well. Try not to stress on the single parent deal. It’s hard; parenting is hard period, but it is so rewarding in the end you’ll wonder how on earth you ever existed without your little one.

    ps they grow FAST so even when you’re exhausted and wondering why the heck you ever decided to procreate at 3 am one morning, it goes by so quickly you’ll turn around one day and your teenager will be glaring at you from across the dinner table because you won’t let them go out until they clean their room. 🙂

    Nice to meet you! Looking forward to seeing more of your journey.

    1. Thanks so much for subscription and your advice! I do my best to take everything one day at a time and to document this journey, so I can share it all with my daughter one day. And, it’s very nice to meet you and looking forward to more conversations 😊

      1. Ohhh you’re having a girl! That’s so wonderful! I have two blogs here, one is kind of sad…ups and downs. Oneraisondetre is mostly about my physical illness and coping along with stories about my autistic son. I’m actually going to move the stories about him to another blog I have so that might be the one you want to follow – will be much more uplifting than the other. I also have a photo blog, if you’re into that. It will be linked in my blog about my son. That one is

        Just wanted you to know I’m not all depression and chronic pain 😉

        Also – I have a friend who is a single mom, just turned 30 and has a 3 year old. She is an AMAZING woman and her little guy is one of the happiest and most mature kids I know. You remind me of her in the way you write. That’s what drew me in. 🙂 Will catch up again with you soon!

      2. Thanks for sharing your website! I don’t know much about autism or chronic pain, but I think it’s pretty amazing that your sharing your story. I will follow both, especially the one about your son. I believe we can learn a lot about the stories people share.

        I’m happy we were able to connect and looking forward to reading your post! Keep in touch 😊
