Pooping in my pants

You know those Facebook status games that go around and are super fun? I don't like doing them. I don't know why...I just don't. But recently someone started the pregnancy facts game and I want to do it! But not on Facebook...I'm going to do it here. Because I don't follow the rules. I'm a gangsta, yo.

Also, I'm going to post as many facts as I want instead of letting someone else dictate how many I write. YOU DON'T OWN ME.

1.  I found out I was pregnant when I was barely over 3 weeks along. Super early.
2.  We decided at the beginning of my pregnancy not to find out the baby's sex, and we stuck to it! People told us that we would give up and find out and we didn't. Boo yah, haters!
3.  I had to start wearing maternity pants at 6 weeks because I was so bloated, but I didn't gain any weight until my second trimester.
4.  I ended up gaining just under 60 pounds by the end of my pregnancy.
5.  I lost 40 of those pounds in the week after Gibson was born.
6.  Needless to say, I retained water like a camel at the end. I couldn't wear shoes because my feet were so big, and I have stretch marks on my legs from the swelling.
7.  Speaking of stretch marks, my stomach looks like an atlas.
8.  I felt super adorable when I was pregnant even though I looked like a whale.
9.  I was asked whether I was having twins on a daily basis.  It was incredibly irritating.
10.  I was induced on my due date for high blood pressure and a high level of amniotic fluid. I labored for 15 hours and ended up having a c section.
11.  Gibson was born screaming, and got a 9 for both his apgar scores. Such a smart baby, getting a good grade on his first test!
12.  I had awful hip pain that made it hard for me to walk sometimes. Danny had to carry me to the bathroom once. And I weigh more than him when I'm not pregnant...thank goodness he's strong!
13.  A nice Russian man predicted that I was having a boy, but most people thought Gibson would be a girl. Including me. Where's that mother's intuition everyone talks about?
14.  Danny and I both got a stomach bug when I was 7 months. We ended up in the hospital because I was having contractions, and it was the worst/funniest (it was only funny after the fact) night of our lives. There was lots of vomiting and pooping. It was awful.
15.  In that vein, I may or may not have peed my pants several times while I was pregnant. And I might have pooped in my pants when I had the stomach bug. Or not. I'll never tell.

Pregnancy is glamorous, folks! And now you know so much about me! Here's the last photo we took while I was pregnant so you can see my belly in all its whale-like glory:



And I went a week past that. Maybe there were twins in there and they missed one...
