So you really want to know?
Flatulence: The Avila boys would have a tough time competing! I am officially deemed "worthy"!
Stupidity: Okay, you're thinking, "that's nothing different". But really, I've been a clutz. I've got bruises that look like I had a run in with a poor tattoo artist. Rudy would prefer I put a disclaimer on each one so that he doesn't look like the bad guy. And for an at work "doh!": I bundled up 31 letters to go out in the mail WITHOUT postage! (which means all 31 would have been back on my desk the next day had the postal carrier not noticed!)
Clogging: No, this time it's not the dance form! My hair is falling out like crazy. I'm constantly unplugging the shower drain, plucking loose hairs that tickle my arms during the day, detangling them from my toes, etc. It's everywhere! I think I can vouch that all women have at some point been irritated with loose hairs between the boobs and in the butt crack??? Right gals?...Right?
Potty time: I HATE getting up from a so-called good night's sleep to use the bathroom. I have no choice in the matter, right? I'm beginning to think my ultra-bladder may burst if I continue to pretend it can hold on until I'm ready to get out of bed.
Bouyancy: I probably can float like a boat with this bloat! I feel so bloated and have been very crampy. The only relief I get is when the bloating is associated with the flatulence (see above). Is this too much info?
Cravings: Mashed potatoes and gravy....food of the gods! Anytime, anyday...doesn't matter. Boxed, homemade, fast food...doesn't matter. I LOVE being pregnant around the holidays since that's when 10 lbs. of mashed potatoes can be consumed without the fear of having leftovers. I can't wait! What time is dinner?
Pains (in the butt): Really! While pregnant with Dominic, I had an awful pain in the tailbone area that lasted a few weeks. Donovan was no pain (in the butt) at all. So now, I've got this constant pulled muscle feeling in my left buttock. Literally, a pain in the butt! Is this an indication of how our kids' personalities are?
Hormones: I prefer to call them "horror-moans", and I'm not a huge fan of them. They try to take control and usually win. I expect them to be ever-powering for at least the next 12-months and will use the "Cry It Out" method to cope.
Do I come across as whiny? I know there are many of women out there that would kill for just one of these symptoms. I am blessed with quite a few I suppose, and "whining" is just something that comes with the territory. Gotta do it. Gotta love it. Gotta enjoy it.
