7 problems anyone who has been pregnant will understand
These days, most women are not forced to become mothers if they don't want to. Fortunately, society is becoming more open and usually only those who want to have children. But there are pros and cons. While it's happening, it's important to remember that some of the side effects of pregnancy can be quite negative, but on the other hand, the connection between a mother and a newborn make all the struggles worthwhile, right? Trying for a baby is always going to be a deeply personal decision. So here are some photos showing why you might like to try... and why you might not!
1. Young children certainly produce some, um, interesting odors. To the extent that you might feel using air fresheners as earrings is really your only option.
But on the plus side, there's nothing quite like the smell of your little one's head. So soft. So sweet.
2. When your belly grows so big that you start having trouble tying your own shoelaces, that's the time you might start questioning the entire enterprise.
But once they've arrived into the world, you realize it was these adorable tiny hands and feet taking up all that space inside.
3. When your feet swell up, and the only shoes you can manage to put on are flip flops or slippers.
But it's worth sacrificing the opportunity to wear beautiful shoes, just to see this one-of-a-kind smile.
4. When you've had enough of the nausea and just want to stop being pregnant right now.
But once it's all over, you just want to give this adorable thing a gentle cuddle.
5. When labor pains just seem like a bad joke. But your other half is just peachy.
But soon they will be here to give you all the hugs whenever you are sad or in pain.
6. When your gums start bleeding and you're wondering whose fault it is.
But this little hand holding your finger tight makes you forget everything else.
7. When a contraction starts... wait, did we already talk about this? We should probably go over it again, it's supposed to be one of the most painful things you'll ever experience.
But everything is worth it, to bring about that unique connection between a mother and child that will last a lifetime.
