Pros and Cons

Pregnancy brings with it a lot of exciting emotions and changes. It also brings some things that are, quite frankly, a bit of a bitch. Here, for your reading pleasure, are my pregnancy pros and cons.

PRO--My hair has never been thicker.
CON--That includes the hair on my chin.

PRO--My face looks great--so smooth, little to no break-outs and it's as soft as a baby's butt.
CON--The rest of my body is a dry, scaly mess!

PRO--Bigger girls.
CON--Painful girls.

PRO--Because I'm creating a life, I have free reign to nap whenever I want and go to bed as early as I please.
CON--At least once during the night, I have to get up to pee.

PRO--Strong, long nails.
CON--Nails that are so sharp I cut myself scratching the aforementioned dry, scaly legs.

PRO--Getting to shop for a new wardrobe.
CON--Discovering that even maternity clothes are made for stick-thin girls with no hips. Hello, I've got an extra person going on here!!

PRO--Weird, vivid dreams.
CON--The inability to post them here, because some of them are a little dirty and my MOM reads this!! (Don't worry, Mom, at least they all involve Ricky!)

PRO--Massive excitement over meeting this new little life.
CON--Absolute terror that I am responsible for this little life. Who thought this was a good idea??
