Pregnancy Warning Label, {wiggles}, & a winner


{Magnolia's picture from last week!  We are 29 weeks now & healthy as can be!}

The other day a volunteer doctor at work (the funniest one we have -- very quirky male, late 30's/early 40's, long hair & wears a hello kitty pony tail holder "because i like hello kitty, not because i'm gay") said to me...

"Blair, I don't want to sound cruel, but you've really let yourself go!  You know when you leave the hospital they'll make you take that home with you!"

Knowing his sense of humor, this actually cracked me up!!  He said something else that I can't quite remember, but I do remember that it got me to thinking... what if pregnancy came with a warning label like you find on the back of a pill bottle or hear read really fast or in small print at the end of a commercial (think zoloft).  This is the fine print that came to mind....


Some common side affects may include:
Weight gain, nausea, heartburn, indigestion, stretch marks, sore breasts, affection and adoration from your family, bladder infections, caffeine withdrawal headaches, hemorrhoids, excitement, constipation, irritability, food aversions, unexplained sobbing, heightened sense of smell, dry eyes, changes in vision, frequent urination, constant worry and fear, extreme joy, increased desires to strangle or kiss your husband, uncontrolled shopping for tiny outfits, extreme exhaustion, gas, rampant appetite, inability to maintain regular exercise, unexplained smiling, shortness of breath, lower back pains, upper back pains, increased cellulite, varicose veins, carpal tunnel syndrome, sensitivity to people's comments, and impatience.            

Pregnancy may last more than 40 weeks.  Labor is often painful and complicated.  In some cases emergency surgery is required.  Pregnancy is not for everyone.  Consult God, your husband and doctor before becoming pregnant.  In 100% of cases prayer has proven most efficient in handling pregnancy side affects.  While pregnancy is not for everyone, it has proven to increase family size and strengthen your maternal instincts.

What do you think?  Pretty accurate?  Would you add or change anything?

  18. Hilarious! I'm now re-thinking our plans to have a baby. Adoption sounds better & better!

  19. lol, you are very correct, friend :) i think everyone should read your warning label before 'taking the pregnant pill'. my sister works in the ER and has horror stories about fools having babies. (really sad, actually).

    hope everything is going great!! enjoy the 3rd trimester!! (sleep LOTS!)
