6 "Ridiculous" Things I Don't Regret Packing in My Hospital Bag

Hormones and Pregnancy

Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me: Devil Woman

When I realized I was pregnant, I knew I was embarking on a long and arduous, be it, exciting time of my life. Knowing that my body was going to take a hit for the process, I expected my hubby to treat me like a queen. Little did I know, my tiara would look more like devil horns.

To see why I evolved into a demonic crab,


On the surface, pregnant women deal with changes like swollen feet and burgeoning bellies but it is inside where the massive changes are taking place. While the babe grows, the mama's hormones rush like a raging bull.

One night, I asked my mate to take out the trash and walk our rent check upstairs while I finished dinner. He absolutely did not want to do either as it was drizzling outside. At first we joked about it but I felt if I was going to cook, he could do those quick chores. In a flash, I went from a jesting laughing wife to a cloven–footed Cruella De Vil type character.

My man finally fell prey to my hellish pleas and took the trash to the curb. Once he was out the door, I locked it. And, wouldn't let him back in until he dropped off the check, too. I thought this was funny, but he didn't. He caved, but later that evening, I was the one petitioning for forgiveness.

The next time I'm expecting, I hope I'll have a better hold on my horns.

I wasn't evil but I was a sap, I cried about EVERYTHING! If he didn't give me an extra kiss before he left in the morning, I cried. If I saw a sad commercial, I cried. If it got too hot out, I cried. If it was too cold out, I cried. I was a weeper.

Ha! Wow. It's so nice to read such honesty about being pregnant. Women (and their mates) need to be warned.

My sister and I shared an apartment together, and she was difficult to live with before her pregnancy...when she got pregnant it was so bad living with her I had to move out! I tried to be understanding, but it eventually got to the point where I would stay out until I knew she wouldn't be home or would be sleeping. I sure hope I don't end up being as horrible as she was during her pregnancy!

So far as long as I am eating constantly, I'm ok. It's when I did in to my bag to find out that I forgot to replenish my snacks that I worry.

I was an odd duck in that I was never bitchy or hormonal at all. Seriously. And I did IVF, which normally wreaks havoc on the hormones with all of the drugs. I'm not sure why, but I was just about the same as I always am. I was a bit more emotional in that I cried more easily at TV commercials (I always did, though, especially ones with animals), but I don't think my husband realizes how lucky he was that I wasn't ever evil. Someone needs to tell him because he doesn't believe me. Heh.

Too funny! I'm pretty sure I'm going to turn into a crazy woman when I'm pregnant. I've warned my fiance but he thinks he'll be able to handle it. We'll see...
