Pregnancy Dictionary, Part 2

"So, Sarah, what's it like being five months pregnant?" I hear you say. Well, I'm glad you asked! It's a lot like this:

Round ligament pain: Where your insides get to feel what a drum head feels like when it's made. I think the 'round' stands for 'round the clock', cause this dull, achiness won't quit!

Braxton Hicks Contractions: Practice for the real thing, apparently, but just feels like a cramp or as if the baby is bracing itself in the very lowest regions of your body.

Pyrosis: commonly called 'heartburn' although it has nothing to do with the heart and everything to do with your inept esophagus letting waves of burning acid into your upper digestive track.

Inferior vena cava: The vein running along your spine that makes it a no-no to sleep on your back. *grumblegrumble*

Cravings: What got you eating oreos dipped in peanut-butter without your consent. Best to be very suspiscious of these bad boys as they can have you eating ridiculous things if you let them.

Sounds like a blast, now I want to get pregnant! Eh, maybe not yet.

The Oreos dipped in peanut butter, though...Now that sounds really good right now!

With my first daughter, I craved rootbeer floats, and as a kid they were her favorite things. It could be what your baby's craving.

Been there done that.. It's all true.. the heartburn, not being able to sleep on your back, the weird cravings and weird contractions that you hope that aren't real..
