Being pregnant isn't all its cracked up to be. Pregnant ladies have lots to complain about - vomiting, sore breasts, backaches, heartburn, etc. Fortunately, I managed to escape most of these aliments throughout my pregnancy with Porgie and with this pregnancy too. However, I do have a few complaints.
First, let's talk about the fact that my hips have come unhinged. When I lay on my side, my hips hurt. When I walk, my hips hurt. When I bend over, my hips hurt. Basically, my hips and pelvic region are very sore. This also happened when I was pregnant with Porgie, except I don't remember it happening so damn early.
Next, let's talk about constipation. I have been constipated for a few week now. Nothing seems to help. I feel the constant urge to go to the bathroom, but when I get there, nothing happens. I was also very constipated when I was pregnant with Porgie. From the time I got pregnant until a month after I delivered, I was constipated. I wouldn't wish this agony on my worst enemy.
Finally, let's talk about gas. Maybe this is related to the near constant state of constipation I've been in, but I have been very gassy lately. Its kind of embarrassing, kind of annoying, and kind of painful. I don't remember having gas when I was pregnant with Porgie, but maybe I just blocked out all of those horrible memories.
Don't you love to listen to me whine? And guess what? I am only 18 weeks along, so you get to listen to 22 more weeks of complaints. Lucky you!
