May I live vicariously through you? :) Because I don’t want another kid, but the ability to have crazy cravings/be proud of my belly will always sound appealing.
Do you have what I had – a husband who constantly feels EXACTLY like you do? I mean, how dare them?? Although I read those with sympathy-nausea make the best daddies (which must be true from my experience).
Regardless of how it’s been for you, my biggest advice to still procreating ladies is to ENJOY IT. Swollen feet? ENJOY IT (never again you’ll have a medical reason to put them up). Achy everywhere? ENJOY IT (chocolate is medicinal). Impatient? ENJOY IT (I’m the most impatient person in the universe, and even I miss the anticipation now. Dream up!).
Another thing I enjoyed about being with child is the free pass to be cheesy. To decorate your (or somebody’s) place with blue or pink, eat sugar and watch all your friends make a fool of themselves. How fun is that?
A few days ago I helped throw my sis-in-law’s baby shower. By the way, is your brother-in-law’s wife considered your sis-in-law? Please comment if you know the answer to this question.
I was only in charge of baking, so the decorations blew me away. They even made my first-try-ever pecan cupcakes this adorable.
As far as baby shower tips go, I’d say come with a good long-wear lipstick. Also try to “eat pretty” (since most candid pictures will have you stuffing something in your mouth). Lastly, invite ladies who make you laugh. This group had us cracking up of the silliest thing – and that’s what this party’s all about.
If you are or have been pregnant, what advice would you add to my preggo friends?
