I never thought I’d have much in common with Mariah Carey and now there are three things.
We were both born on March 27.
We were pregnant at the same time.
And we both hate being pregnant.
The singer is opening up about what it was like to be pregnant with twins. She tells that she struggled to enjoy her pregnancy. Dude, I didn’t even try to enjoy pregnancy. Pregnancy, to me, is something to be endured. As RealityTVMagazine.com reports, Mariah said her pregnancy was a very difficult and bleak time in her life. She was uncomfortable with everything her body went through and apparently her feet became very swollen. I can imagine, carrying around two humans is no small feat (HEY-OH! Get it? Her feet were swollen and I said it was no small feat? Man, I’m clever!)
Mariah Carey gave birth on April 30th, on her third wedding anniversary to Nick Cannon, to son Moroccan and daughter Monroe.
I’m just glad another celeb is coming clean with how difficult pregnancy can be. Most of them seem to float through nine months, sporting stilettos and attending premieres, it’s nice to be able to commiserate with someone who could buy and sell my entire home state if she wanted to.
Marah’s thoughts on pregnancy reminded me of my very first post here on Being Pregnant. I wanted to call it “Being Pregnant Sucks” but it was eventually changed to “Being Pregnant Ain’t Easy“.
I had this co-worker I’d always run into in the restroom at work.
I’m five months pregnant and she’s always crowing about how magnificent, how splendid, how truly wonderful being pregnant is. I mean, you guys, being pregnant was, like, THE BEST time in her life and oh how she misses it.
She usually tells me this after I’ve just upchucked my third Lean Cuisine pizza in as many hours and am standing at the sink, staring at myself in the mirror wondering how in God’s name I’m going to make it to nine months while working full-time as an executive producer for a local television news station.
Magnificent. Splendid. Wonderful.
Right. I don’t know about you but that ain’t my experience with the whole miracle of life that’s currently taking over my life.
So what about you? Are you breezing through pregnancy like my co-worker or are you struggling to survive? What is the hardest thing you’re dealing with while pregnant?
