“When I turned 20, people kept asking what changed about me.Actually, personally I think there isn’t any startling change. Just that I’m cherishing my memories each day more and more as the days go by”
My tummy is finally getting rounder and harder! I feel her kicking frequently throughout the day and when I lay down, it’s really strong. If I lay down flat I can watch her roll around and kick, it’s so crazy to see! I’ve been playing music to her now that she can finally hear. I’m trying my best to eat healthy, but NOTHING sounds good to me besides junk and I really hate that. The most negative thing I’ve been feeling is anxiety. It’s been incredibly overwhelming at moments out of the blue. My skin has been super dry, which is unusual for me because I’ve never had that problem. My acne is coming back-my skin has been oily 👎🏻 She’s going to be gorgeous because she’s sucking every tiny bit of beauty I had right out of me! Haha. My hair has been getting longer, and my morning sickness is sneaking back! In all, I’ve been feeling really good and feeling/seeing her move almost all day long makes this feel so real.
I’m getting really wound up about people who don’t vaccinate their kids recently. I understand that it is a mother’s choice but honestly it’s selfish. When I got my bloods back at 14 weeks I discovered that I’m not immune to Rubella, which could have been fatal to my unborn child in my first trimester, but the doctor’s advice was not to worry because most people are vaccinated so the likely hood of contracting it before I can be vaccinated after delivery is low.
First day of class Magda with post-morning rain frizz and a 23 week belly. You can follow my “Feminist Perspectives on Culture” course on tumblr. The course, in short, is about badass feminist women doing badass feminist shit. I am looking forward to it and looking forward to learning with Women’s Studies students and being privy to their perspectives.
This, my friends, is marinade. This is People humanizing Louis Tomlinson, letting people watch him grow up and go through all these stages of his life and finally into the most joyous one of dad—just before we get a denial. Here’s this sweet little boy, who grew up into a regular guy, who got the chance of a lifetime, who worked really hard and played harder, who made a mistake, but it worked out for him in the end. This makes him relatable. It makes him sympathetic. It makes him a character the GP will feel like they know enough to care when we find out he’s been duped.
The baby’s growing like it should and I got new vitamins, but that should be fine. What’s not fine is the fact that I’m way too sexually frustrated now. It has something to do with the increase of blood flow or some shit like that, but I’m not enjoying it. At all.
I dislike how people try to brush off pregnancy tiredness.
Like, yes, you may have done more moving around physically or whatever but I’m still creating another human being.
My body is carrying a baby, while going through changes that weigh down in my back, cause different parts of my body to almost swell, & has shifted my center of gravity while doing so.
I can’t fully sleep between the backaches, constant bathroom runs, & general uncomfortableness. So I wake up unrested.
So yes, while you may be doing a “harder” job, my body is also doing something just as tiring, if not more.
So don’t say there’s no reason I should be tired if I haven’t done as much as you all day.
This is why I don’t post things on Facebook half of the time…
Up until we found out the sex of our baby, I didn’t really post anything about my pregnancy on Facebook. Why? Because Facebook is the land of “I’m going to give you my opinion on what you should do thru your entire pregnancy because this is your first child". Mmm-kay, I have 5 nieces and nephews, of which all of them I’ve taken care of since the day they were born and I have 2 sisters that can give me the advice I need.
Plus, people on FB are quick to throw out negative comments towards pregnancy. I don’t like that. It’s like, if you are going to comment on something, be inspiring and positive. Yes, I know my body will change and go thru things, but I’m CREATING A HUMAN….what do u expect? That doesn’t mean I want to hear the worst side of everything from you.
Then I have the people who don’t even half know me harassing me for a “baby bump" picture. Now I’m thinking to myself, this person hasn’t checked on me once thus far in my pregnancy… Why would I post anything that you ask for? Plus, I feel that’s a personal thing. A woman may not be comfy with her bump yet, or she may feel chubby…. Although that’s not the case for me, I’m just a private person and I feel more comfy posting a bump pic on here than on FB. **Sigh** Why cant people just say “Congratulations" and move on.
