Life as a pregnant lesbian…
You don’t hear that phrase too much…. at least not yet or I don’t hear it too much.
I tell you what, it has been very interesting seeing people I haven’t seen in awhile and explaining to them how I got pregnant. A lot of people think/thought that me and my ex were having the baby… Not true. If you have been following my past blogs then you will know the story.
So just being pregnant in general is very challenging. My body has gone through some major changes. I guess you can say that I am having a “text book” pregnancy but WOW! Let me just say that. Before I got pregnant I was 120lbs, athletic, worked out 4 times a week and as a matter of fact I was training for a marathon… Those plans got put on hold until next year. I got a breast reduction 3 years ago b/c my breasts were too big for my frame, thinking that I wouldn’t have any children b/c I always wanted to adopt. Well God had different plans for me. My breast are now back to that size… Good times! I am definitely happy for the gift that comes out of this, however I am little scared. I am having a natural waterbirth, which means no drugs or medical intervention unless absolutely necessary. Scared b/c I figured out last year that I probably won’t ever get another dog b/c they require too much for what I wanted to give. (I LOVE DOGS..ANIMALS IN GENERAL, just didn’t have time for a dog) I figured I would just stick with my cat. So now, I am about to have a little human being… looking at me for help and guidance. When I first found out I was pregnant, I thought, who in their right mind would give me a child to have and take care of FULL TIME? lol I love children, just wasn’t ready for one full-time. I also, never dated a women who had children. I never really had an opinion on it, it just never turned out that way.
So my question to you is, is it different dating a woman with children? I don’t want to be that mother that dates and instantly start bringing my son around, or that mother that goes out to the bars all the time. Of course, dating is not my priority right now. I know I will be totally occupied with my little one, but just curious. Any advice or comments are welcome.
