The things people never tell you.

If you’ve read here long enough, you know that I don’t sugarcoat pregnancy.  I mean, duh, it’s obvious that it’s hard work and that it’s not for the weak.

Of course your mileage may vary but there are some less than attractive things that either didn’t happen last time, or weren’t has bad.

Last time, pregnancy left me with shorter arms, which was great when it came time to wipe my ass.  That was awesome.

This time, I don’t have that problem, (at least not yet) thankfully.  But this time around, I have a raging case of pregnancy boogers and sounding like a hoover when I breathe.   A friend of mine asked me, yesterday, if I was running somewhere, because I sounded like I was out of breath.   My response was basically “nope, just pregnant and am suffering from a raging case of sounding like an airline engine when I breathe.”   It’s awesome.   The pregnancy boogers are an added bonus and I find that I have no shame anymore.  I’ll go in past my collarbone if it means sweet relief from major snot blockage.

Not that you had much shame about going deep before. :)

I had a runny nose and couldn’t breathe for the first 7 months of my first pregnancy. I learned the hard way that my husband had been farting like mad since I couldn’t tell the difference.

Well look at you, getting yourself knocked up again! I finally came out of blog hiding and I cannot believe how many of us are pregnant again. Thank god I don’t have any more frosties because this is the last damn time I’m doing this to myself. Pregnancy sucks and I’m sick of sugar coating it just because I worked harder than “normal” people to get here!
I’m looking forward to reading your pregnancy rants again because if nothing else, misery loves company.

I had horrible pregnancy boogers (great name!) with all three of my pregnancies. For 9 months each time. The thing that saved me was ‘Breathe Right Nasal Strips’. Get them at any drug store. They are like little stiff bandaids that you apply just below the bridge of your nose. They hold your nose open so you can breathe better – you’ve probably seen pro football players wearing them. Anyway, I wore one every night when I was pregnant and they really helped me to be able to breathe well enough to sleep. Good luck!
