I feel like everything I’ve been told about pregnancy from the media is a lie 😐

I am not glowing or radiant or overjoyous or any of that nonsense.  I’m a disgusting example of a woman.  I have puke in my hair and am ready to kill.  When does the glowing start?! D:<

I glowed for about four weeks in the 2nd tri when I finally had a break from nausea, felt great, was happy go lucky… and then it all went back downhill.  Definitely all lies!

@DrTeeth:  I’m glowing! From disgusting pimples all over my face and chest. Does that count as pregnancy “glow”?

@Quietserenity:  Omg… I just LOL’d!!!  I can’t wait for that moment and I still have 3+ months to go in my pregnancy. 

I also have no “glowed” one bit unless you consider my swollen shiny stretched skin (especially my fingers) as “glow.”

@Quietserenity:  this made me laugh! Nurses  kept bugging me too. I was glad to have my midwife there because she let me go in the bath with my baby and it felt SO nice. Nurses kept glaring at me, but they could go f*ck themselves because they refused to give me pain killers! For me the glow started after the 20 week mark after the nausa went away. Thats when I actually startesd to look pregnant..not lie i had just gained a ton of weight. And thats also when the sretch marks came in =c so i didnt feel like I was glowing even though people said I was.
