Hi everyone, I am 24 weeks now and i feel like i have been pregnant for an eternity already...!!
To be 100% clear I know how super blessed it is to be pregnant and I really shouldn't complain about it since there are so many others who are struggling to conceive. I am really excited about having my first baby (boy) and I feel so connected to him already, love cuddling the bump and can't wait to have the little treasure, safely delivered, in my arms... bring on 22nd Nov (+/-)
PLEASE DONT SHOOT ME! - However, that being said, I am HATING being pregnant. All I have heard are stories from other mums saying how wonderful pregnancy is and how they loved being pregnant, the bump, the glow etc blah blah blah. I feel so guilty about my thoughts, but I can't help feeling utterly board to tears in my pregnant state.
I was not a big socialite or party goer pre-pregnancy but once you have this little being inside I feel an unbelievable sense that my body is no-longer mine, but a vessel for my unborn child. Moreover, as a sporty person who loves partaking in an active lifestyle, I am constantly being questioned by people around about how i should 'rest-up' and 'be careful of the baby'....WHAT ABOUT THE MOTHER!!!
This summer has also brought further challenges/annoyances.... My recent holiday to France was ruined by my hormonal aggression getting to everyone as they were drinking copious amounts of wine, eating blue steak and chomping on cheese whilst i was sipping on soda and seething in jealously... Fear not, I spent all my holiday pocket money on wine to be enjoyed once baby is safely born.... CANT WAIT, cue daddy time Muahaha!!!
Oh and one last thing.... My husband just broke his leg and is immobile for the next 4 months!!!! So I am now also a full time carer....PASS THE GIN PLEASE!!!

Oh thank god for your reply, I was starting to think maybe I had offended all pregnant women around the world with my burst of confession!
Good to hear I am not the only feeling this way :-)
A broken Husband isn't making things easier I admit but I am sure (hopeful) that he will redeem himself post birth with lots of 'breakfast in beds' and 'daddy time' so I can enjoy a moments bliss...until the next feed at least
