Pregnancy and distraction...


Being pregnant is awful.

I really wish I was one of those women who have an easy, enjoyable pregnancy. I haven't. We had a difficult time getting pregnant, and when we finally had pregnancy stick, I got really sick. Nausea, dizziness, vertigo, headache... And I am so tired all the time! That little zygote is the size of an avocado(also, why do we compare developing babies to food when talking about size?), how is she making me so sleepy all the time?! Changing my medications* to safer dose/ type had been rough too.

Don't get me wrong, I am super excited for our baby girl. I can't wait to see if she looks more like me than my husband, if she has my curly hair or his eyelashes. I just can't get into pregnancy when I'm so uncomfortable.

The best thing for me has been distraction. Reading a good book (or even a bad one!), exercise, trips to the beach, and working. Work has actually been awesome. I've had clients commiserate with me and remind me that contrary to the articles on motherhood that seem to be everywhere, I'm not the only woman to feel this way. I am not a freak of nature. That they too, did not enjoy pregnancy for a million different reasons, but that little tiny baby made it all worth it. It's a good reminder, and one of the many reasons I love my mostly female clientele.

Women who loved being pregnant, you are all awesome. I am in awe of you. Women like me, thanks for sharing your experiences and making me feel better. I am constantly reminded of the strength of women. It's inspiring.

If you are interested in coming in and distracting me, AND getting some amazing pictures while you're doing it, holler my way. Or shoot me an email:

* I have a disability- epilepsy
* I know not all women are mothers, either by choice or by circumstance. Just so you know, you are all amazing as well, just for different reasons. I'm just venting about my current circumstance. =)
