With a 3-year-old and a 9-month-old at home, I feel like I’ve been pregnant for years! There are many wonderful things about being pregnant that I will remember forever. Generally, though, it’s a horror show. Nine months of tiredness, getting exponentially larger and a whole host of absolutely disgusting pregnancy symptoms.
Since I love movies (I also run a movie blog), then what better way to describe my pregnancy symptoms then through the magic of GIFs?
Finding out you’re pregnant
Even if you’ve been trying to get pregnant, there’s still that utter shock and disbelief as you stare at a positive pregnancy test.
Then the excitement
The symptoms start…you basically live in your bathroom. There’s the inaccurately named morning sickness…
You’re so tired.
Hormones also cause all sorts of horrible stomach troubles, from this…
…to this(sometimes all in the same day)
Your hair starts to grow uncontrollably
Your fingernails start to grow too
Once the morning sickness subsides, you’re hungry all the time
There’s never enough food!
The cravings start to kick in
With my first, I craved hard-boiled eggs and spaghetti hoops. With my second, KitKat Chunky.
You’re also very emotional. Going from…
Your clumsiness is dialled up to 11
You find out that ‘baby brain’ is actually a thing
You can’t remember what day it is, why you’re in a particular room or even what you did yesterday.
