Ten Signs of Pregnancy

In the beginning stages of pregnancy, it’s hard to fully convert to the idea that a little human being is developing inside you.  All signs point towards pregnancy, but without the basketball tummy and feeling the little one move inside you, doubt may cloud whats real.

So today I thought I’d point out the ten signs of pregnancy.



#1. If 8 hours of sleep is no longer sufficient, but 16 seems to do the trick...

You might be a redneck...

Oops, I mean PREGNANT.

#2. Your new residence resides in "la la land."

#3. You begin craving weird things like Spaghetti O’s or get sudden burst of hunger at 2 in the morning.

#4.  You find yourself wearing things like this...

and have no clue why people keep looking at you funny. This really happened to me.

#5.  You’ve lost all motivation. Suddenly your life of productive multitasking turns into the desire to do… NOTHING… absolutely NOTHING.

#6.  You can smell a poopy diaper from a mile away, and the thought of changing it makes you insanely nauseous. 

#7.  You begin gaining weight everywhere possible including your toes.

#8.  Your hormones fluctuate as rapidly as the stock market.

#9.  You discover little black hairs in weird random places like your chin and even your elbow.

#10.  You forget important things like changing the oil in your car, where you live, or even the names of your children.

So there ya have it!

This describes exactly what I've been going through the past two weeks. I feel like a completely different person and only hope things will get better in the second trimester.

Oh the things we go through to bring these little people into the world.

P.S. I'm sorry I have not posted week #3 of the work out program. I promise I will still put it together, just need a little more time.

I SO relate. I am almost to the point where I don't believe I can live a normal life again. Oh man, our poor families;)

Loves,

That one girl said...

Scents. UGH, the smell of ANYTHING and EVERYTHING makes me want to vomit when I'm pregnant!

Heidi (lilmommyfoofoo) said...

I am in trouble. I do about half of these things, and I am not pregnant. Funny how hormonal changes throw so much out of whack!

BTW, don't think I've said it, but, CONGRATS! :)

Too funny! I love the sunglasses, esp. I did a lot of standing in rooms trying to remember what the hell I went there for.

Glamazon said...

Ah, pregnancy! It is a trip, that is for sure. Love the sunglasses, so funny.

theriddle said...

So funny about the sunglasses.

Dysfunctional Mom said...

I'm cracking up about the sunglasses! That's too funny.
I'm scatterbrained so I do this kind of stuff on a regular basis, and I haven't been pregnant in over 10 years!

The Random Blogette said...

I so remember stuff like this when I was pregnant. The random black hairs totally threw me off though. I still get one every once in a while. Ick!

Adrienne said...

I am sure in no time you will be doing stuff again relax it is supposed to be joyful =)

Candace @ Candace Creations said...

So true! lol! Some of these things still apply after the baby is born too! I love the sunglasses! ahaha
Hope you are doing well with the pregnancy so far!!!

Verena said...

Crystal, this is so funny, but can totally relate!!! In my third pregnancy I felt very awful and tired and weird sometimes.
Hope you´ll feel better soon!
Have a happy Easter!

Much love,
Verena

Kristen and Erik Cambridge said...

That is funny. It makes me feel better about some of the silly things I have done since I got pregnant. Especially the pregnant brain. I sometimes think my patients have wondered how I ever got a masters degree. oh and I totally relate to #7. Even your earlobes get fat. It's crazy!

Renee Weatherford said...

#4 - lol really? This was very cute - although I have not had the pleasure of going through these crazy things yet, I know it's all worth it in the end :)
