This is what I hear when I roll myself off the couch and waddle towards the fridge. I know, Iâm not that big yet, but I feel like all the weight is in my belly. Itâs actually throwing off my balance, making my physique similar to this fellow:
Iâve always had a voracious appetite since I was physically able to shove food into my own mouth, so I always assumed that when I was eating for two Iâd overshoot my goal and eat for, say, 10. I always joked that Iâd probably be one of the women who gained twice their body weight. I anticipated it. (I almost looked forward to it). I thought Iâd have a bunch of crazy recipes to share and be cooking on a daily basis. But Iâve let you all down. This site is a pathetic excuse for a food blog.
Things havenât been working that way. What did I know? I got all my pre-conceived notions about pregnancy from TV shows and movies. Women would be eating gallons of ice cream using a pickle as a spoon, or sending their husbands out at 3am for a craving of hamburgers. Theyâd have intense mood swings and cry one minute, then scream the next, then become happy after that. Theyâd throw up multiple times a day.
None of that stuff has happened to me. Iâm not saying it doesnât happen to other women, but so far I havenât been able to relate to one single person about howâ¦mellow this has been so far. Aside from the stress, I havenât had any irresistible cravings, or incredible mood swings. I havenât cried once. I also never threw up. The only couple symptoms I keep experiencing are food aversions (likeâ¦not wanting to eat anything) and headaches. I guess I canât complain though. Could be worse. Sometimes I wonder if most of it is purely psychological, brought upon by TV/movie influences. But Iâm afraid to wonder out loud in case a hoard of angry women b*tch me out (FYI, pregnancy forums are terrifying battlefields). You only threw up 5 times today? Well, I threw up 27 times today, beat that! Um okâ¦you winâ¦? After reading endless comparisons of who can throw up the most, whoâs husband was the worst, who gained the most weight, whoâs in the most pain, well, actually I learned nothing from it. Except that I should stay away from pregnancy forums. They are the devil.
Iâm obviously not perfect either. I get frustrated when my husband doesnât sweep the cat litter off the floor. Or help with the dishes 2.45 seconds after we finish dinner. I ask him if I look fat at least once a day. The thing is, I had those neurotic tics before I ever got pregnant.Â Hormones need not be an excuse.
It would be funny if one day, I asked Chris if I looked fat and he answered, ââ¦.yes.â Iâd probably laugh.
Then cry over my bowl of ice cream.
