I had a little moment on Tuesday that I can’t say I’m proud of. Now I know I’ve been open about how grumpy this pregnancy makes me but yesterday was an all time low for me. I totally lost the freaking plot.
Hanging my head in shame
Do you ever have those moments when you do something and you actually can’t even believe that it’s you who is doing it? Well that was me. I was just minding my own business, scrolling through Facebook (can you mind your own business while on Facebook?) and suddenly there it was – the worst thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life!!
Shock and Horror! My husband had a new Facebook friend!!
Okay I am really not jealous in my relationship. In the entire time we have been together there has been exactly one instance when I’ve been a bit annoyed about another woman (who was actively trying to “win him back” from me – to the point where even his mother said this girl is carrying a candle for him – I didn’t even know that was a real saying till then) but this was different. Wasn’t it?
I lost my marbles – I actually burst into tears.
Why? You might ask… well let me tell you. It was because she was thin and I feel like a pregnant hippo. Yup. At 8 months pregnant I have become much larger than I am used to being. I obviously have psychological damage to the brain at seeing myself like this because WTF? I am REALLY not generally an insecure person. I am definitely not the kind of person to burst into tears over the addition of a new Facebook friend either.

The look on his face was priceless – absolute and utter confusion.
I promise you normally I’m more like “well if you want to leave then go, no one is going to force you to be here” and other independent woman type stuff. Oh no, not this particular Tuesday. She was thin and I was huge and that was all it took to turn me into a psychotic crazy person with tears ALL OVER THE PLACE.
My poor husband has to constantly remind me that I’m pregnant and not actually fat… but every now and then I like to throw myself a little pity party. Sometimes I like to invite him to attend it too 😛
Lol, thankfully one day later and I’m okay with laughing at myself and the whole situation but it was a pretty serious event at the time. The funniest part was, that he didn’t even know who he had become friends with on Facebook and was extremely confused about what I was talking about. Yup – this pregnant grump is also filled with body issues.
Did you have any completely irrational moments while pregnant or am I alone in this one?
Okay, I’m off to eat more chocolate.
