What's Different

How am I different since July 22, 2012?

I now share my feelings and details of my life on the internet (albeit with a select group of friends and family).

I can't watch several of my favorite shows this season because of pregnancy/baby-related storylines (e.g. Modern Family).

I've found it hard to keep in touch with some friends. I've gotten closer to others.

I have eczema flare-ups, something I haven't had to deal with since middle school.

I am more likely to expect the worst.

I understand my parents better.

I am often tempted to write rude things in response to people's Facebook postings when they complain about parenthood.

I weigh less than I did before I was pregnant. (Don't worry, I do eat-regularly and well.)

I do acupuncture regularly.

I feel awkward in most social situations. During almost every interaction, about 30% of my mental energy is devoted to wondering if something will come up about pregnancy or babies, and how I will handle either topic.

I'm trying to get pregnant. I didn't think I would have to do this again for a while.


  1. I also quit watching some of my favorite shows because of pregnancy/babies. Sucks.

    We will start trying again this summer, after birth control helps balance my cycles out. I also didn't think we'd be doing this for at least another two years. It's tough.

    I love reading your posts and thank you for sharing these thoughts. I had a lot of the same ones. *hugs*

  2. Great post! I agree with most of them as well. It's so nice having others who understand. :)
