thought for a split second I would want to be pg again

Postby slterwil » Feb 07, 2011 4:04 pm

a friend of mine just announced she is 11 weeks pregnant yesterday. I'm super excited for her. She's been wanting this for years, but my silly brain then went to the place of wow, I'll never have a baby bump again and I want to be pregnant...then reality hit and I mentally smacked myself around and reminded myself:
33 weeks of HG
Zofran and Zofran poohs
nausea
vomiting
dehydration
anxiety
depression
starvation
light sensitivity and migraines
phenergan hell
peripheral IVs
PICC line
subQ pump
ER visits
home health
laxatives and stool softeners

That list seemed to take care of the insane impulse I had to think that pregnancy wasn't that bad. Why do our brains do this?
