Awkward and Awesome: Pregnancy Edition

Happy Monday!

It’s been a while since I’ve done this kinda post so I thought I’d get ya up to speed with my pregnancy and how I’m coping lately!

There are SO many awkward and awesome moments during pregnancy.


  • Leaving the bathroom after peeing and feeling like I have to pee again.
  • Having the same eating schedule as some younger male colleague. We are always meeting in the lunch room to make food. Every. Single. Day.
  • Some colleagues didn’t know I was pregnant until a few weeks ago because they usually see me behind a desk. The shock on their face said it all.
  • Hearing stories of everyone’s labour. I get it. Everyone is still traumatized by their labour but I am still refusing to think that labour won’t be an amazing but exhausting journey to the most amazing gift.
  • Still not being able to stay up past 9:00 p.m. unless I take a nap during the day.
  • Grunting while bending down to pick things up, put shoes and socks on. You know, the every day things.
  • My winter jacket is becoming quite tight. I can’t have it zipped up if I’m sitting down because I feel like a stuffed sausage.
The meal at the top was mine. This photo doesn’t do it justice because that plate is the size of a serving plate and that buckwheat crepe was filled with cheese and spinach and took up half the plate. Ham, eggs, bacon and fruit rounded out the meal. I also had a freshly squeezed orange juice because it’s my craving at the moment!


  • Getting seats on the Skytrain all the time.
  • Making it to the third trimester.
  • My bump becoming VERY large, overnight.
  • Being able to eat and eat and eat but somehow not gaining as much weight as I assumed would happen. Thanks baby!
  • Having The Mister feeling Baby Murray kick.
  • The Mister being SO awesome even though I’ve been a hysterical mess going from anger to crying in about one minute flat.
  • Having The Mister reach over while we’re on the couch and just rest his hand on my belly.
  • The Mister fasting with me when I took the gestational diabetes test.
  • People have been SO generous with clothing, toys and just stuff for Baby Murray. It is SO overwhelmingly sweet. She is SO loved already.

So there ya have it. Pregnancy has brought out SO many awkward and awesome moments along with some interesting emotions. It’s definitely been a wild ride so far!

So tell me, what’s awkward and awesome in your life these days? What was awkward and awesome about your pregnancy?

  1. haha, definitely avoiding all of the traumatizing labor tales over here, as much as possible! I’m already not the kind of person who enjoys talking about medical stuff so these are just really not my style. I don’t want to go in to the experience scared already of what could happen. Hurray for third trimester!


  2. The horror stories are the worst! For what it’s worth I had a very quick, uneventful labor- followed by one of the best most unforgettable moments ever of holding our little guy. So try not to let people scare you!


  3. My sister basically sneezed my niece out, so I think everyone is just different in the amount of time, effort, and pain they deal with during labour. No one expected her first to come so fast. Your Little Potato will show up however she was meant to come, and I’m sure it will be amazing. 🙂


  4. Yay for the third trimester! One of my awkward moments during pregnancy was definitely people commenting on how big I was getting! Haha! I’m not sure what people expect when they make comments about size during pregnancy but it sure made for some awkward moments. 🙂


  5. So sweet of your husband to fast with you 🙂 No worries on the awkward moments- I feel like ALL pregnant ladies go through some seriously awkward stuff 😉 Lol!


  6. I feel like unsolicited medical stories should be vague and positive. “Well, labor was challenging, I’ll admit that, but it was all worth it to hold my baby for the first time!”

    People can research as much as they want for the negatives of a medical condition or event. Don’t scare them with your story unless asked directly for details!
