Only 8 Weeks
Everyone's so far ahead... I'm only 8 weeks and I cannot even begin to fathom 20-30 weeks onwards. I'm 25 I thought it was the right age to get pregnant but really if it were up to me I would've waited till I was almost 30 but nobody was having THAT. I feel soooo powerless and bossed around. It's my damn body. Get your own uterus. Don't meddle with mine. Anyway, this is my first and last. If this pregnancy doesn't make it... I'm not about to start over, no sir. It's over. I'm getting industrial strength IUD or tubal litigation or better yet pretend to have developed fibroids and have a hysterectomy. I'll pretend anything. I need to figure out a plan on how to overcome pressure to have a second child. Any ideas? :) I cannot cite depression/mood disorder/medication as an excuse coz these are dense people I am dealing with. They don't understand mental disorders. And honestly, you couldn't. Not unless you have experienced it yourself or seen it firsthand in a parent or a sibling. Someone you had to live with. Plus I live in a country where the laymen have never heard of any of these disorders. In 20 years time they'll only be going through the "have heard but it's a stigma" stage. I live amongst fools. Save me.
