I am a line in the sand kind of person. I make decisions, often totally arbitrarily, and then I stick by them, often for no good reason at all. I do not pretend to be rational, I’m just decisive about certain things. For example, I refuse to watch any shows containing the name Housewives in them. Ditto with Bachelor/Bachelorette. And then, I totally watch Glee every week. It’s clearly not an issue of me only liking quality television as much as just creating totally made up standards.
So that’s why it’s become somewhat troubling how many of these lines in the sand have been crossed during pregnancy. Some of these lines are relatively rational, some were from pure laziness, others were, well, for no reason. And they have all been quickly crossed and a part of my regular routine. I’m not sure what this baby is doing to me, it’s like I don’t even know myself anymore.
So without further ado, these are the 7 things I swore I would never do, but am totally doing while pregnant, besides posting totally unflattering pictures of myself to amuse strangers. Because obviously.
