The 7 Stages of Pregnancy

#1 – SHOCK

OMG, am I reading the pregnancy test right? I can’t be reading that right. Is it supposed to be one line or two? It’s two! It’s two! OMG, OMG OMG!

#2 – PAIN

My boobs are sore, my stomach is upset and the smell of my co-worker’s Chinese food is seriously going to make me hurl.

#3 – BARGAINING

If I just jump up and down, and hold my breath for a moment, I can totally still button my regular jeans. No maternity clothes for me yet!

#4 – REFLECTION, LONELINESS

My friends are going to the bar tonight and I’m in my pajamas by 7:00. Is this what the rest of my life is going to be like? More importantly, do we have any ice cream left?

#5 – THE UPWARD TURN

I have energy! My boobs look amazing! Second trimester rocks!

#6 – TESTING

*Googles every symptom and thing that happens to body*

*Googles ways to kick-start labor*

*Googles what other women’s bodies have looked like at same stage of pregnancy”

*Googles “bloody show”*

Okay, need to stop googling.

#7 – ACCEPTANCE & HOPE

This is really happening. I’m becoming a MOM. I can’t wait to meet my baby and see my toes again.
