#1 – SHOCK
OMG, am I reading the pregnancy test right? I can’t be reading that right. Is it supposed to be one line or two? It’s two! It’s two! OMG, OMG OMG!
#2 – PAIN
My boobs are sore, my stomach is upset and the smell of my co-worker’s Chinese food is seriously going to make me hurl.
#3 – BARGAINING
If I just jump up and down, and hold my breath for a moment, I can totally still button my regular jeans. No maternity clothes for me yet!
#4 – REFLECTION, LONELINESS
My friends are going to the bar tonight and I’m in my pajamas by 7:00. Is this what the rest of my life is going to be like? More importantly, do we have any ice cream left?
#5 – THE UPWARD TURN
I have energy! My boobs look amazing! Second trimester rocks!
#6 – TESTING
Googles every symptom and thing that happens to body
Googles ways to kick-start labor
*Googles what other women’s bodies have looked like at same stage of pregnancy”
Googles “bloody show”
Okay, need to stop googling.
#7 – ACCEPTANCE & HOPE
This is really happening. I’m becoming a MOM. I can’t wait to meet my baby and see my toes again.
