Reflecting Back on the Preggo Days

While Pregnant, I knew I had a choice: be anal and learn everything there was to ensure a "perfect" pregnancy or just enjoy the ride. I chose the latter where I just read a few books and snuck in Jenny McCarthy's Belly Laughs for kicks just to get myself mentally prepared. Of course, we also took classes but I knew I wasn't going to remember everything. I figured I was going to be way stressed when the baby arrives so no point stressing myself out beforehand. Reflecting back, I must say that I'm glad I took a relaxed approach to enjoying my pregnancy. There were moments where I wasn't sure about something and I would troubleshoot by googling or looking it up in the book. Google became my best friend. It's amazing when you look up something such as "Pregnancy Groin Pain" and you find a lot of other pregnant women claiming the same ache. The best was when someone had put it as "it's like someone punched me in the crotch!" I laughed so hard I almost gave birth, and yet took comfort knowing I wasn't the only one suffering.
Surprisingly, my first trimester wasn't too traumatizing. I guess I imagined the worse where all I kept visualizing was my head in the toilet. It only happened a few times, most of the time I was just nauseas. And like everyone says, second trimester is THE BEST. I could eat again and had a bit more energy. We took this time to go vacation in Ireland. Even though we've travelled quite extensively, I still felt compelled to have one more holiday. In hindsight, I should have found a place that didn't require 14 hours on a plane. That was PAINFUL but the holiday itself was fantastic. Third trimester is where the waddle came in and where I had to completely replace my wardrobe with maternity clothes. This is also when the daily karate workout happened and baby daddy got to feel it too! Nearing the end, I dreaded what every pregnant woman dreaded - the impending labor. I was terrified of the pain that was to come. You get so big, you just can't imagine how it's even possible to come out. I didn't see any way out of escaping the marathon required for the labor and the pain that was to ensue. I figured if I delivered naturally, I would tear. And if I couldn't then I would suffer from the c-section surgery pain. What a cruel joke to woman.
What I will say is this - Yes, labor is as painful and horrendous as you are imagining it if you happen to be pregnant. Pretty close to "exorcist" for some. But dont worry, once your little one arrives, it's a whole new ballgame and yes, labor will seem like a piece of cake. But don't fret, it does have it rewards, just like everyone says and I concur.
