The not-so-nice part about being pregnant is the ... well not-so-nice stuff that comes with it (mainly in the third trimester – well…the puking in the first trimester isn’t all fluffy clouds and kittens either).
I happened to notice (while appreciating that I could still see at least a portion of my legs last night) that my legs have turned a funny pinkish-purpley color…and are all spotted with white dots. And my skin looks all stretchy and sausage-like.
This isn’t so much the stuff that makes me want to skip out of the bathroom singing “goodie…a funny colored stretchy skin thing is going on - on the one remaining part of my lower extremities that I can still actually see ... maybe this is a GOOD omen!”
Nope…instead this makes me want to google the crap out of what this new discoloration could mean. Which means one thing ... I’m about to embark on the land of stupid and highly unqualified opinions on the internet. Yup – you try googling this issue …I guarantee you won’t get some brilliant OB doctor explaining something rational. Nope…you’re bound to get some crazy person that felt the need to share their opinion about how skin discoloration during pregnancy means the world is coming to an end…and Obama is an alien….and if you just bought more Amway…this wouldn’t have happened to you…you must be a democrat…and a crack-smoking, society-mooching meth addict that has permanently screwed up your baby…and this punishment was sent directly from god.
You can thank me later for not posting a picture with this post.
