I feel quite like an injured and diseased hippopotamus. At least what I imagine a diseased and injured hippo would feel like.
I usually feel beautiful and sexy and *powerful* when I'm pregnant. This time, I feel icky. Waddle-y. Ungainly.
I am a good 20 pounds heavier than I normally am at this stage of pregnancy and I am experiencing all sorts of new and embarrassing problems that I attribute to the ghastly weight gain.
Thighs rubbing together and causing a rash so I cannot walk or make love? Check.
Vulvar swelling? Check.
Heels cracked and painful? Check.
Incontinence when laughing or sneezing? Check.
These symptoms are all new to me. They suck. I want them to GO AWAY.
How are you mamas all feeling??? Any other injured and diseased hippos? Or just radiant and lovely pregnant ladies?
