You Know You’re Pregnant When…

I’m officially pregnant. I mean, really officially pregnant. How did I come to this conclusion after 5 months of watching my stomach balloon, my feet ache and my cherished wine off limits? Because today Ladies and Gentlemen, someone finally gave their seat up on the subway for me!

I was heading into Manhattan on a packed car. Standing room only. A seat opened up and the woman standing next to me turned and without hesitation, asked if I wanted it. She was much older than I, so I knew she was offering because she thought I needed it more than she did.   Hallelujah. I don’t just look randomly thick and puffy anymore. Now my appearance has a purpose. And I will use it to my full advantage.  Time to get out the tighter fitting tops and get this baby bump to work for me.

Baby boy, you didn’t think you were getting off scott free did you? No sir, mama is putting you to work.

By the way, Little Leroy is the length of a squash now. Grow boy, grow.  We’re halfway there!

    I actually knew 2 days before my period was supposed to start thanks to implantation cramps, but the kicker was when my breasts became so sensitive around 4 months that I could no longer wear a bra, but instead wore tank tops with a built in support for the next 5 months, coupled with the fact that I finally got morning sickness, also to be had for the next 5 months.

    I knew i was pregnant w/ my second and third pregnancy because of what i experienced w/ my first pregnancy. I felt dizziness kind of like room spinning feeling w/ all my pregnancies. Also i noticed my veins on my breast very visible more than usual. I remember also that i would be starving and i would go out to eat and they would always mess up my order, right there n then i knew i was pregnant…

    I knew I was pregnant when I requested for an ultra sound because I had missed my period for 3 months and ruled out pregnancy because I had been taking precautions. There she was a few centimetres long and kicking ferociously. I fell in love instantly.

    I knew with all three of my pregnancies that I was pregnant when I could no longer stand the smell or taste of coffee. And I love coffee.
