A comment that is very common for me to hear goes something like this:
"I bet you're sick of being pregnant, aren't you?"
No, I'm not.
I have very easy pregnancies--
no complications, no drama.
While I will admit that I am officially uncomfortable at this stage of the game,
I hope I never portray pregnancy as some terrible life-event to simply be endured.
I know many women have different stories than mine,
and, to be sure, I am NOT belittling their experiences.
I don't know how it's become so normal(?) to bash pregnancy and scare the living daylights out of anyone who has not yet had a baby.
Think how many horrible pregnancy/birth stories you've heard compared with the number beautiful, heart-warming ones. Why do women do that to each other? I have no idea.
I came across this article recently and really enjoyed it.
Maybe you will, too.
