While your partner is out of town on business, and after waking up at 2:30am, decide to give yourself a drastic haircut in your bathroom. :/
Please tell me I'm not the only one to lose my grip on good judgement while pregnant...
I've also shorn my hair in a fit of frustration when I finally found where the scissors had got to. I triumphantly told my DH that I'd found that scissors, but when he looked at the hand I was presenting; it was not scissors in my hand but rather a fist full of hair.
I have terrible insomnia in the latter half of my pregnancy. It's bad enough that I cannot maintain a full time job while pregnant. I take gravol for this (I do NOT recommend this especially if you're a candidate for preterm labour. I have little fear of preterm labour, and will probably go overdue again). I went to speak to a pharmacist and she tried to take my gravol away. I had to snatch it back quite quickly. I cannot function properly, work or take care of my 2.5 year old on 0 - 3 hours of sleep a night.
Don't get in between two men attempting to beating up a third man (who obviously was trying to get away and was just a kid walking home from work). I was walking home from work at about 10 at night and noticed two men (early 20's?) hassling a third young man. At first it seemed like they were just goading him but as I got closer it was obvious they were looking for an excuse to fight (a perfect stranger just trying to get home). The sad thing is, is that other people on the street ignored what was going on. I brought out my phone to call the police but it became obvious that this guy was moments away from being pummeled. I approached the group, the two guys looked stunned at the angry pregnant woman giving them what for while the third guy took the opportunity to make a break for it and run into the nearby grocery store for help. Afterwards a couple adult men approached me and congratulated me on my citizenship ... I couldn't help but wonder where they were in the middle of it all :P
Wow, Nattery, I'm so glad the situation turned out OK. I would have freaked if I were your husband, but totally understand that we become humanity's protectors when we're pregnant and mothering. That instinct to protect the weak is very strong. You're awesome (but please don't do this again!). And seriously, why didn't anyone else step in?! Craziness all around.
Yeah. I was not proud after the "incident" LOL
Ted (my DP) wasn't very happy about it (scared him that I had REALLY hurt myself), but he has a good sense of humor and I have picked him up before, so after he cleaned up my bloodied toe (scraped the tip of it quite badly), we laughed about how dippy that was.
Truth is, in the moment, I kinda "forgot" I was pregnant.
Carrying heavy things, moving too much or having lapses in judgement seem to be par for the course for pregnant brains. For me, I think it borne out of a need to assert that I am still me. You know?
