Readers Confess Their Least Favorite Part of Pregnancy

It’s no secret that I loved being pregnant — even through the endless kidney stones, the injections I had to take and the constant “oh my gaw, I am going to puke” feelings, there was something about it I just loved. Sure, there were parts of the pregnancy that I wish I could have done without and I know I am not alone in that.

For some reason, we’re told not to complain too much when we’re pregnant. Many of us dream of being pregnant and wait what feels like forever for it to happen to us, I think that is one of the reasons people really hate to hear us complain. We kind of did that to ourselves, right?

Well, I think that there is no harm in sharing some of the ‘bad’ that goes with pregnancy. Some of the symptoms are pretty relentless and sharing them can help us feel less crazy and more supported. Sure, it’s bad if that’s all you hear from someone — but there are times where a mama just needs to vent.
