Following is a description of the love hate relationship with my body
Decide to get pregnant: the wonder! The amazing! I can’t wait!
Negative pregnancy test: WHY have you failed me?!
Positive pregnancy test: Tears of joy! Thank you!! Thaaaaank you!!!
Morning sick and exhaustion: Are you freaking kidding me?
2nd trimester glow: I’m amazing. There’s a lemon inside me!
3rd trimester grow: I’m huge. GAHHHHH.
End of pregnancy: I can’t believe my body has grown a human.
Labour: GET THIS HUMAN OUT OF ME.
Post labour: Like, I seriously made a human.
Milk hasn’t come in yet: Why are you trying to starve my little human?!
Milk comes in: I made a person AND I make food. I’m a superhero.
Boobs engorged, nipples cracked: WHYYYYY.
Baby gains weight: I DID THIS *holds up baby, Lion King style*
Period comes back (with a vengeance): Screw you. SCREW EVERYONE.
Some semblance of normal: My baaaaby. I want another. This was such a magical experience.
