107 Women Who Tackle Their Everyday Pregnancy Struggles With Humor

Posted by admin on

To us outsiders, being pregnant seems like such a beautiful experience. Months of researching baby names, learning about the human body during doctor's appointments, and bringing a new life into this world. Honestly, it sounds so magical.

But the everyday life of pregnancy is so much more than that. And way less glamorous than the movies want us to believe. Stylish maternity clothes are really expensive and hard to find, and that "glow" that everyone keeps mentioning is more sweat than sprinkles.

To paint you a more accurate picture of what it's really like to grow a human being in your belly, Bored Panda has compiled a list of honest posts that mothers and their loved ones made about them expecting.

Last time I threw up and this time I could feel myself getting sick again so I did the only thing I could thing of to save myself. It worked!!! I may have to put baking Asiago bagels on hold from here on out until after I've had Solomon. Ironically I've never had such trouble with nausea and smell sensitivity as I'm having now with my first boy. Everyone has always said theirs was worse with girls! Go figure mine is worse with a boy! And I thought I'd get some relief.
