Things I am learning about being prego...

--Zofran is an amazing drug...if you have morning sickness, DEMAND Zofran from your doc (let your insurance suck it up and eat the cost--it is well worth the fight with them!)
--I can no longer suck in my gut, I suck and nothing happens...guess I have extra stuff in there filling in the previously voided areas...and as a side note, I hit a high point yesterday when my niece asked to feel my baby so I guided her hand to where to feel and she says, "Wow, your belly is huge!" That is a good thing, right????? Please comfort me, haha.
--I have a new found love for Cheetos (maybe this should be the blame for the waistline instead of the baby...nah, the baby is the cause, for sure!!)
--Long flights are no longer the sole cause for my elephantitis...can I just tell you how much I dislike the feeling of swollen ankles and feet? I really don't like it. I can't even stand to look at them after a day on my feet...it makes me feel strange inside, like watching contortionists...
--Every woman seems to have horror stories about giving birth, which doesn't make sense to me, because I keep hearing that women forget the pain blah blah blah and that is why they keep having babies...well, the stories they share with me surely are pain-filled and it doesn't sound like they have really forgotten. I guess by the end of the year I will be able to join yet another strange club of women that don't really make sense, joy! =)
--Maybe I have more patience than previously I have given myself credit for. We find out on Aug 5 (8 days...who's counting???) whether we are having a boy or girl. But the point of that is, I am proud to say that I did not cave in and head to the mall for an early ultrasound. There is some hope for patience in motherhood!!!

You make a very good point Michelle. Why do we women share pain stories when we say we forget and have more kids? Well, I think Heavenly Father gives us temporary amnesia. First, you're in labor and you say to yourself " I will never forget this pain". Then, the baby comes and is in your arms, the amnesia begins. You tell yourself, "I would totally do that again". Then you bring the baby home and you are sleep deprived. You tell yourself "I will never forget being sleep deprived." Then your baby starts sleeping through the night and you enjoy the day being a mom. As time goes on the amnesia comes back and you see another woman pregnant and think, "how cute" and you remember that part where you held your baby the first time and said you would do it again. Thus...you DO IT again.
However, we women usually share are painful delivery stories when we are at the moment NOT baby hungry and the amnesia has been temporarily lifted due to circumstances like feeling tired, lack of time alone with partner, terrible twos, and so on. So next time you hear a painful delivery story, just smile and think to yourself, ha ha amnesia will come back and I'll see you at the OB's office soon. Good luck with your ultrasound. Luv ya Mitch.
