Now that I’m getting towards the end of my pregnancy I find these non-glamorous moments happening much more often. Here’s some of my personal non-glamorous moments I’ve experienced…
Acting like a turtle on it’s shell when trying to get off a deep sofa.
Unfortunately this happens to me way to often! My sofa is a recliner and I always seem to forget how hard it is to get off. I in the end have to get my husband to push down the recliner and help me shuffle towards the edge of the sofa. However, now I’m on maternity and my husband is at work I’m having to work out how to get off the sofa myself, and I can only describe it as acting like a turtle stuck on it’s shell!
Forgetting you stick out further at the front so you can’t fit into all spaces.
Eating healthy in front of others and then eating the entire contents of your cupboards at home.
Gaining the ability to snore. Loudly.
Having no control over your body temperature.
In England it can be hot one day, then cold another, but this has no effect on a pregnant lady at all! I am hot, all the time. When it’s an extremely hot day, don’t even come near me unless you want to see the sweat literally dripping off me (Sorry for that delightful vision there…). Weirdly enough though, the skin on the bump is always cold!
The sudden urge to need to pee.
It’s very common for me to be in the middle of a conversation and then to suddenly jump up and say ‘He’s kicking on my bladder, I’ve gotta pee!’. Even just 30 mins after going you’ll need to go again soon!
There are plenty more non-glamorous things that happen in pregnancy, but they aren’t really things I should share on here! Let me know in the comments if you’ve ever experienced any non-glamorous moments in pregnancy. I just hope I’m not the only one who has had these happen to them!
Thanks for reading and have a good day!
