Ok, fellas, this one’s for you. For any of you that have, will have, or have had a preggo woman in your life, I’ve compiled a little picture show to help you understand what it feels like to be with child.
I loved being pregnant the first time around. It was so magical and full of promise/anticipation. The second time was noticeably more difficult, presumably because I was a little older, and had a very active toddler to chase down, but I still felt that little bit-o-magic. The third time? Suffice it to say that for the past several months, I’ve pretty much felt like a walking, fluid-filled marshmallow with one mean waddle.
This pretty much sums up my general, everyday bodily sentiment:
What my butt feels like:
My arms (aka, what it’s like to wear pantyhose):
Da Boobies (x 10):
Did you know that a woman’s facial features can grow wider while pregnant?
And let’s not forget about those ankles. No pedicure in the world can overcome this:
Seriously, guys. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but these don’t really even do proper justice… I would love to pick the brain of the alien freak liar pregnant woman who says she feels sexy…. and don’t get me started about what we have to go through to get on a pair of underwear, shoes, or *gasp* shave our legs….
Ok, now that I’m done whining, go hug a pregnant woman. Wait…. you might just lose a certain part of your anatomy that you’ve grown quite attached to… or she might wrestle you to the ground for that ham sandwich. Maybe it would be best just give an understanding nod & hold the door…
