Thank you!

It's so hard for me to let go of writing on this blog. I love this blog. I have made so many Cyber friends and have found the most amazing support group in all of you! The funny thing about this site is that I created it out of frustration with baby forums. I was sick of reading those horribly bitchy responses, and getting them too, from those nasty know it all bitches! I just couldn't take not having a place to vent and think out loud, thus "tiredofbeingpregnant.com was born!

I also promised myself this would be a safe place for all to bitch and cry without any judgement. I positively hate being judged, so I always try my best never to pass judgement on anyone. I also decided I would never post nasty comments. I have to say though, after 7 months of blogging I only received 2 or 3, and they were all the same, "how dare you, you should be so grateful you are having a baby." Well, you all know my response to that... "Shut it! I know I'm blessed being pregnant, but I'm also sick, constipated, tired, achy, bitchy, and plotting my husbands slow painful torture for being so damn annoying!" I learned from this blog that I don't really give a shit what anybody thinks! I had a rough pregnancy, and now I have a beautiful son I love more and more everyday! So shove "know it alls!"

I cannot imagine not stopping back by here to piss and moan about one postpartum thing or another, but I suppose it is time to start writing about the amazing joys and fulfillment I get from motherhood. Like every time my sweet son pees all over daddy, oh it just never gets old!!

Thanks again to all of you my wonderful readers! I never imagined this blog would be so successful and have such a following. Then again I bet 90% of pregnant women type "I'm so tired of being pregnant," into their computer at one point or another in their pregnancy. I also know for a fact that 99.9% type into the search bar, " I'm pregnant and hate my husband/boyfriend." I know this to be a fact because I have the stats to prove it!

Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart! I invite you to please join me at www.firsttimemomanddad.com as I open and discuss the next chapter of my life, parenthood!

All the very best to you and yours. Also please do not hesitate to email me at tiredofbeingpregnant@gmail.com, even if you have stumbled on this blog 5 years after this post... Who knows by then I may actually know what I'm talking about! ;) xx

    1. Thank you Alissa! As I sit here at midnight feeding my 2 1/2 week old son I wish I could start a mothers group with all of you. I have loved reading your comments as much as I have loved writing. Thank you so much for your support.

  4. April,

    I just found your CUTE, honest, wonderful blog! I'm not pregnant. I'm 57! I was looking for some reassurance for my daughter. She's 28. Pregnant for the first time. 19 weeks. Happy. Scared. Tired. Worried. Always searching for answers. I've just now forrwarded your website to her and can't wait for her to enjoy--and learn from--your observations and experiences.

    So happy about your new little bundle of Oliver!!! My best wishes to you and your hubby!!!

    Hugs,
    Betsy in Texas

  5. I'm 38 weeks and some odd days pregnant. I just googled "I'm so sick of being pregnant," and this magical blog popped up. I just wanted to let you know, I think you just kept me from attempting my own c section. :) Never, have I ever, been so fucking miserable. Your blog made me decide to turn off Adult Swim and attempt some sleep before my little turd sandwich gets here. Thanks.

    1. LMAO! Turd Sandwhich!! 38 weeks, You are almost there! Sweet dreams...trust me no matter how crap the sleep is during pregnancy, it's still sleep. Once lil turd sandwhich comes on the scene sleep will be few and far between. Please come visit me at www.firsttimemomanddad.com with comments like yours I want to be your friend. You used the "f" word, that's my favorite!!!

  6. Choosing this name for your blog was genius. Obviously you know what I was googling. So, I just found this blog and I love it already. You don't try to be p.c. and I can totally relate to hating pregnancy forums. Why is everyone such a bitch on baby gaga? Since I just found this site I am off to go explore what you had to say at around 28 weeks pregnant (it's where I'm at). Thanks for the, so far, great blog!

  7. You gracious author and proud new momma!April 20, 2012

    Hi Sheenaha! You are very welcome and congrats on 28 weeks! I think at 28 weeks I was in/or leaving the "eye of the storm" the second trimester gave me about a month of relief. Well I still had a filthy north and attitude but I didn't want to throw up on people and I was quicker on my frets. I'm sure I still wanted to punch my husband in the face. Very hard.

    All the best to you!!

  8. I am 12 weeks pregnant and I hate it! Always sick, can't eat saucey foods, wish I could just a whole bbq chicken pizza without feeling sick. Kinda miss my drunkin nights. Now I just sit around all day tired and lazy and bored. Lost my job for taking out four days for puking my brains out. Me and my partner are always fighting and and I feel stuck with him and I'm only 21 :-( I feel like my lifes over or just getting worse. No one will hire a pregnant girl..
