So I decided to make a list of the goods and bads of my current condition. I don't mean to make light of having a miscarriage and I normally wouldn't even think of it but since I just had one... Well, let's just say all bets are off. After being pregnant for 11 weeks (and feeling every minute of it) and then suddenly not being pregnant for 5 days I feel justified in my observations.
Good: I am no longer nauseous.
Bad: I no longer have an excuse to be a picky eater.
Good: I can start training for a marathon if I want.
Bad: That would require training for a marathon.
Good: My boobs don't hurt anymore.
Bad: They shrank.
Good: I don't have to gain 35 lbs in 9 months.
Bad: What happens if I do it anyway? Darn those truffles and their magical healing powers!
Good: I can fit into my pants again.
Bad: So much for that new wardrobe.
Good: The thought of chili doesn't make me sick anymore.
Bad: The smell of it still does.
Good: At least this all happened during fall break from school.
Bad: I need another fall break to recover.
Good: I'm not bloated anymore.
Bad: Actually... there may not be a bad side to this one.
Good: I have the energy to blog again.
Bad: There is only one thing I feel like blogging about.
Good: I'm not going to have to worry about swollen ankles anytime soon.
Bad: It's getting too cold to show off my sexy skinny legs.
Good: I haven't worn mascara in a week (very liberating)
Bad: It's because I'll just cry and ruin it.
Good: I'll still be able to reach my legs to shave them when spring comes.
Good: I can now take my prenatal vitamins without gagging.
Bad: They still taste like dog food.
Good: This whole ordeal has reminded me how many people love and care about me. Thank you all for your love and support.
Bad: No bad to this either.
Ugly: No sweet squishy baby to cuddle on April 29.
