So far this pregnancy, I have been blessed to have very few negative pregnancy symptoms. *Knock on wood* Sure, I felt majorly hungover for the first three months, I've had a few nasty headaches this trimester, and I've had the random food and smell aversions, but, really, nothing all that bad.
Unfortunately for me, along with the lack of the bad comes a lack of the good. I heard of all of these unexpectedly good things that come from pregnancy, and I haven't ended up with one of them. Greats nails? They're growing a little faster, but they're still crappy and brittle. Fantastic hair? I was dying for this to happen to me because my hair sucks, but I had no such luck. My hair sucks just as much now as it did 6 months ago (and maybe even more so). That pregnancy glow? Nope. Just lots of acne. Increased sex drive? I wish. Amazing sex dreams? Not a chance. A cute pregnant belly? Sorry, I just look fat.
Though it's a bit disappointing, I can't complain too much. This pregnancy has been so easy on me so far, and I know that makes me incredibly lucky. Still, would it kill the baby to give me the shampoo commercial hair I've been dreaming of?
