Writing Prompt: Pregnancy

"Describe your first pregnancy...piece of cake or terrible experience?"

Well, um, it wasn't terrible but it wasn't ideal either.  I worked in a very stressful environment during that time trying to pull my weight and the weight of other people to try and keep my head above water.
I spent an entire night in the hospital because my back was in severe pain though once I had swimmer's ear after that time I would actually say swimmer's ear hurt worse but the back pain still was REALLY bad.
One of my tests came back low so we had to see a specialist for a second opinion.  That specialist told us the test results which meant that I might die during childbirth.
I did not carry to term and started bleeding around noon the day that my daughter was born.  I called my ob/gyn but they were out to lunch so I worked out the rest of the day and picked up my sister-in-law before going to my appointment.
I never even got thrown a baby shower except a Welcome to the World party that I put together myself for my daughter.

Soo.....  It might not be the most chipper pregnancy story but I'm sure it's not the worst out there either.  And now I have a wonderful daughter.  Plus I do have some funny pregnancy stories that I share with my close friends.

It's pretty awesome that you called your ob who was out to lunch then just kept working all day. Sounds just like something I would have done. That cute little baby makes it seem not so bad in rotrospect, huh?

It seemed logical to me at the time... Apparently it was something that could have been really bad. But it wasn't and I do have my awesome baby girl now! :)
