Whenever I hear “I was full of energy!” “It was just a breeze for me” from previously pregnant women I just want to kick them or something.
Being pregnant has been a rollercoaster and a half and most times it has just been a pain in the behind. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful that there hasn’t been any complications or the like, however……ugh!
The absolute worst part is the TOTAL LOSS OF CONTROL OVER YOUR OWN BODY. It literally feels like there is an alien in you. Like in the movie “Aliens” something growing in you that should not be there. I hate the weight gain. I am obsessed with my body, which is the only thing I feel that I am able to control (within limits ofcourse). I can’t run, can’t work out, can’t lie on my tummy (best sleeping position) can’t bend, cant’t do this or the other! I have not liked being pregnant and I cannot wait for the baby to come forth!
That’s my take and I ain’t changing it!
And how could I forget the ACNE!!! that alone is enough to put me off having a second baby! The face is kabisa messed up. I look like a “spotted dick” (that is the genuine name of British pudding). Ok let me be honest, the acne is gone, but I am now left with the ravages of the hyperpigmentation i.e. the black spots left after picking at the acne. I look BAD and I am not even joking. I have searched the net for all sorts of safe, peeling, bleaching etc stuff and cannot find anything “safe”. My last alternative is to visit a dermatologist and have a surface peel done. BUT and it is a big but (as you can see) I am not too sure I trust the muzungu doctor to handle my skin. White people do not exactly suffer from hyperpigmentation. What if he burns me with the acid. Lord I am desparate!
