    Why Pregnancy? Why Do Only Women Have To Suffer? Isnt Being Weaker Bad Enough?

    Seriously

    I absolutely despise pregnancy. My first pregnancy was hyperemesis from weeks 6-24, then 32-42. I lactated from 11 weeks on. I broke my tailbone in delivery. I got 30 stitches. I'm pregnant again 11 yrs later. Ugh. 8 wks today.
