We Are Not Lazy
Pregnancy is hard work. Yes, it looks like we’re doing nothing, but the body is undergoing a conversion. This leads to fatigue and exhaustion where we need to take naps and won't be able to stay up late and watch the game with you. We will look ragged and also feel pretty shabby. With this, things around the house won't get completed as expeditiously, if at all. For those who already have kids, this could make moms feel more debilitated. If we don’t keep up with the wash, the dishes or the dusting--we are tired. If we don't take a shower or if the other kids wear the same pants in a given week, we are tired, not lazy.
