You would find me writing about graduate school, relationship woes, Facebook, or other random things, but that is it about the depth and range of my writings. Had I been a different person, I would have written about different things. For example, you will never see me writing about how pregnant women feel, because I have no insight or firsthand experience with that. Well, now I somewhat do, have the insight I mean. I overheard a woman talking to another pregnant woman the other day, and what she said was interesting.
She said two things. First, whatever can go wrong will go wrong when you are pregnant. She pointed to the pregnant woman’s injured toe as an example. It seems that the pregnant woman had mysteriously injured her toe, and although it was not a fracture, the doctor could not point out what it was. It could be incipient signs of gout, a minor twist, or something else, but no one knows. That is what the woman said, that things will happen to you that have no logic or explanation, when you are pregnant. You will injure your toe, develop indigestion, have short term memory loss, lose your purse, keep your car keys in the refrigerator, and everything that can go wrong will go wrong.
The second thing she said was that whoever you are as a person gets 100 times magnified when you are pregnant. She referred to friends who had typical characteristic traits that got exaggerated. A friend who was obsessive about cleaning became so a hundred times more when she was expecting. She would go around cleaning stuff at random times. Another friend who had a short temper in general and was not a very amicable or a hospitable person acted like a total bee aai tee see eich when she was expecting. She would throw temper tantrums and go around pissing people off. Another friend was a shopaholic and it got so worse during that time that she would spend all her money buying stuff. Another friend, who was a narcissist, would do nothing else than talk about herself when she was expecting. Hence whoever you are as a person gets multiple times magnified when you are pregnant, usually more for the worse than for the better.
I don’t have enough information to decide if I should buy her logic, but I found her theory pretty interesting. The second one more so compared to the first one. What do you think?
