Pregnant Party #4 – Weird Things that Happen to your Body While Pregnant


(That is not me.  But it is funny!)

We’re having a rough week on Squaw Creek.  Adam got the stomach flu Friday night, and Bart and I got it Sunday night.  As if a puking two year old, who pushes the bucket away and turns his head to the side isn’t bad enough, Adam has thrown up 4 out of the last 6 nights.  Everyone else who go the flu had it for 24 hours, but not my boy!  The pediatrician said it’s a carryover from his infant reflux and told us to let him have ONLY WATER  in the 2 hours before bed.  Yeah, we’ll see how that one goes over.  We’ll be eating lunch early and napping later, I guess!

On to the pregnancy related topics, I’ve been wanting to post about this for a while now:

Weird Things that Happen to your Body While Pregnant

(such a creative title, I know.)

For me, it’s worse this time around.  I do not have a black hair on my body, but this time, during the super hormonal first trimester, I ended up with BLACK WHISKERS!  High up on my cheeks, like my dad’s.  And even worse than that, they showed up on my chest, too.  My chest!  And they were the terrible, grow-an-inch-overnight kind, too!  I’d thoroughly inspect and pluck one day, and it seemed like the next day, there’d be a couple more long, black hairs on my cheeks, chest, or neck.  Yikes!!!

And when I had Adam, I was sooo proud that I made it the whole time without any stretch marks.  Until I was in the Target dressing room 6 weeks post partum and saw them on low back/upper butt!  What?  Six weeks AFTER?  On my butt?!?!?! I didn’t know that was possible!  Apparently my hubby noticed them about 4 weeks after I had Adam, but wisely didn’t mention them to me.

Gotta love being pregnant!!

So what are your (un)pleasant side effects??
