Over the weekend I had coffee with a friend and discovered that she was also pregnant, and in fact, due the same time as I am. As she was telling me about her mood swings and achy body I thought, "Man, I have nothing like this going on. Maybe I'm not really pregnant!"
If I was in doubt then, I'm not at all doubting now. My breasts hurt all the time, I'm exhausted and unmotivated, I almost passed out in the shower yesterday morning, and all night my ribs ached as though I'd been in a fight with Jet Li. How do people do this? How does that reality TV lady with 20 kids do this?? From what I've read on the internet I can only expect more discomfort, followed by a marathon session of extreme pain, followed by about a year of sleepless and sexless nights with a newborn.
Call me uninspired, but I don't know how our species has lasted so long.
