Don’t get me wrong here, I’m beyond excited for our new little peanut to get here. The smushy little face, the new baby smell, tiny little clothes, and a whole room to redecorate.
What I’m not excited about are those ugly little truths of pregnancy that I seemed to magically forget since LJ. It’s amazing how that happens.
Ugly #1: I have seriously bad roots. I was way overdue for a cut and color when we found out about Peanut. Now, it’s just embarassing. Can I claim I’m doing the ombre thing? Only 4 more days until 12 weeks (yeah, my due date was pushed back), then to the salon I go!
Ugly #2: Even when we get all dressed and human looking for church, my nose/head decides it doesn’t care and makes the first hour the most miserable hour of my life. Oh how I miss you Claritin D, DayQuil, NyQuil, and all other drugs that actually do something.
Ugly #3: Intentionally wearing a belt up high to “highlight” the bump, only to realize in pictures that I’m still in that “fat or pregnant” stage.
Ugly #4: Pregnancy brain is real…and I really forgot about it until now. I swear my IQ has dropped by 100 points cause I’m straight dumb right now.
Dress: Gap Maternity, Sweater: JCrew, Belt: F21, Necklace: c/o Lisa Leonard Designs, Shoes: Old Navy
Ugly #5: Maternity swimsuits. Need I say more?
Stretchmarks, saggy skin, giant ta-tas don’t even bug me anymore. Some of these uglies are here the whole way, some of them will soon fade away. The fact of the matter is that I will take them all, each and every one, for my new little Peanut.
