So here’s some tea,
Twenty five, unmarried and pregnant; and the first thing someone asks you was this planned. As if it’s anyone’s business but they still feel the right to ask. That is one of my biggest pet peeves, does it matter? Does it change your life in any way if it was planned or not? Thought so! Pregnancy may come as a surprise for some or long answered prayer for others. For us it was a surprise but a blessing in disguise. Announcing our news to family and friends was an experience all on its own. The women.. lets just say they were and still are demons on earth. The judgement that came out of their mouths baffled me. From the idea we aren’t married or pregnant before them to even my pregnancy journey they had found an issue with. My pregnancy was hard on me, threw up constantly, couldn’t even eat due to heartburn and bruised ribs. Creating a life is a blessing but it is hard work, which many don’t quite understand. Therefore the rude looks I received when I brought up the pain I was in was appalling, you asked how I was feeling! if you didn’t want the truth don’t ask. There were many times were I wanted to pull a full on Cady in Mean Girls and jump over the table and attack my Regina George. Not to mention some people felt like I was stealing their shine, when what I was really doing was trying to stay low key and keep my food down. I don’t think I’ve ever felt more judged until the moment I found out I was pregnant.
