Sleeping before 4am is totally allowed, Self. And you might appreciate the thought after the baby comes. Why the hell are you spending your days tired while you still have the choice to sleep?
And wait, seriously? How are you keeping me awake? You're not even here yet.
Unwarranted pregnancy and parenting advice is bad enough without realizing that you're receiving it from women with no children of their own. Why, why do you people feel the need to do this?
Stop telling me what's going to happen and how I'm going to feel. It's not going to happen the exact same way for me.
Why is it that when you're pregnant, you suddenly feel the need to be friendly with other pregnant women (and women with infants)? I don't feel it in that 'I absolutely need to discuss parenting methods and our views on this and that and tell me your child's name even though we're never going to see each other again' kind of way, but I feel it in the way that you just have to make eye contact and smile like you have an unspoken bond. Is it just me?
At least there are no weird cravings. I just want a lot of fruit and fries and anything with cheese - but not together, they're just the things I want most often. I can't eat Mexican food or dairy (with the exception of cheese, for whatever reason). They have a plot against me.
I'm 5+ months and I don't feel all nice and pretty and pregnant, I just feel fat. I haven't gotten to wear adorable maternity clothes, I haven't gotten any stretchy jeans (although mine are getting a little bit tight - and not in a cute way...if that can ever even be cute). I just feel thick and bloated and gross.
Still, no matter how much I complain about being pregnant (mostly when I'm out and moving and there's a pain in the right side of my pelvis, which like always happens), I can't get over it. It's more amazing than anything. I love to feel my baby moving, and, even though it was one of my greatest fears when I was younger (I was really weird), I can't wait to birth this baby.
