The "Beauty of Pregnancy"
I didn't know that when you got pregnant, your belly got rounder and so did your face ( and just about everything else). Telling me that that's just part of the "beauty of being pregnant" doesn't make my vain and shallow ego feel better. See even us shallow people know that beauty is only skin deep and that's exactly the whole point. No one can see your insides, especially not when its being covered by a fat, round, acne attacked exterior. Everyone also says that in the end it will all be worth it. I'm beginning to doubt that too, although that has been the glue holding my sanity together these past 6 months. After finding out that pregnant women have been lying to me about practically everything so far, I'm inclined to believe that they might be exaggerating just a bit about the part that comes after birth too. If I hear one person mooning to me about the miracle of life, or how beautiful it is to be pregnant, I will probably lose all restraint and tell them just how I feel about this unpleasant biological process. I wish we could just go to the store and pick up our custom made baby, but I think that's the effect of living in an era of instant self gratification. I guess it's really not that bad, but it's also really not that good.
