The “No Thank-You’s” of Pregnancy

5 Things I would go without during pregnancy
21

Before I get into this, I just want to note that yes, pregnancy is amazing and I am so increidbly blessed to be gifted with the responsibility and task of carrying a child. That being said, the first time I was pregnant there was a lot of things I didn’t realize would happen to my body.. and I want to make light of that and share.. for a laugh or maybe even educate those that haven’t quite gone through it yet.

On another note this time around I have enjoyed pregnancy much much more then the first time… but there are still a few things (especially nearing the end of pregnancy) that I wish I could just say “No Thank-You” to and they could go away.

5 Changes That Happen During Pregnancy That I could Live Without

1. Exhaustion // I mean it makes sense, we are growing little humans for goodness sakes.. but let’s be honest… when you are a go go go person and then the third trimester comes along and you are out of breath walking up the stairs that is one big… No Thank-You.

2. Ribs Separating // Maybe this didn’t happen to you but anyone with long babies can agree that the feeling of your ribs separating and expands due to large kicks and little baby bums pushing their way up into your rib cage isn’t exactly my favorite. You can often find me sitting with one hand on my right rib cage pushing that bum right back down.

3. Leakage // Whether it is happening from the boobs or down below I am good without it. Am I right?

4. Back Pain // Pretty much right when my third trimester arrived so did the back pain, I feel like an 80 year old.. maybe even older. If you have a medical plan take advantage of your massages during pregnancy for sure, some reason I haven’t yet and boy is that a mistake!

5. Lightning Crotch // I don’t think everyone has experienced this… but it is definitely something that can come in the third trimester and definitely something that is an ultimate No Thank-You in my opinion. Now this of course is not the medical term for it, but when it is described this way it is exactly what it sounds like, ouch.

Can you relate to any of these changes? Or maybe there is something else that you want to add that would give us all a laugh. Share some of your No-Thank-You’s in the comments below.

  • Pretty sure I’m going to be getting my eyebrows microbladed next month. Been wanting to do this since I was pregnant with Evelyn, would love to hear your thoughts on it below 👇🏻👇🏻
  • Winter days that remind me of summer are my favourite.
  • As the weather gets nicer I am planning on getting out more and more with these two, side by side in our @bugaboostrollers. I found trying to go for walks for exercise with Sophie out of a stroller doesn’t amount for much exercise. It included a lot of rock discovering, bench sitting and flower sniffing.

What are some ways you plan to increase exercise this year?

  • One of these teddies is not like the other ones.
  • Those lights were put up with the holiday decor, but they haven’t found their way down yet. Thinking they might have moved in for good 😆
  • Ezra has been gone for the past few days (almost a full week). It’s been so strange not having him around and the girls (and us of course) miss him so so much! Sophie’s asked me everyday when he’ll be back (his Mom took him to Disneyland for his birthday, lucky guy!). Tomorrow is back to routine and smothering Ezra in all the birthday love cause he’s coming back a 9 year old! 🎉 🎂
