Pregnancy is hard. Pregnancy
is exhausting. Pregnancy is beautiful. We asked real moms to share their feelings
on pregnancy during that last month_the home stretch. You know, when you're so
uncomfortable you will literally do anything and everything to get that baby
out? Yeah. That one.
Here's what they had to say:
"The last month of
pregnancy, I was SO over it. All of it. I didn't feel beautiful or any desire
to really do anything except have that baby! Thank God my baby came a few weeks
early. I don't think I could have handled it any longer." – Lindsay C.
"During my last month of
pregnancy, I felt as big as a house. I literally waddled everywhere, nothing
fit, it was just awful. I was so ready to get that baby out!" – Melissa C.
"I'm a freak, but I absolutely loved being
pregnant, even right up until the end." – Claire C.
"The last month was rough. I
had numb hands and didn't sleep because I was so uncomfortable. Those last two
weeks especially sucked." – Hannah J.
"I loved being pregnant, but
admittedly that last month was not easy. It's definitely nice to sleep
comfortably again, even if it's only for two or three hours at a time." – Kate H.
"Simple. The last month of
pregnancy made me feel like a whale." – Christina H.
I've never visited a bathroom as often as I did in that last month of pregnancy.
"Every day is a new issue! I
think I had maybe three weeks of feeling good, and the last trimester didn't give
me any relief." – Emily A.
"I loved being pregnant, and
even dreaded my due date because I didn't want it to end! I loved styling the
bump, feeling the kicks and flips and knowing that I was creating something
beautiful. I also loved not being alone anywhere I went." – Morgan K.
"The last month of pregnancy
lasts FOREVER." – Michelle G.
