The Bloat

Webster defines it as expanding or swelling with or as with air or water. History knows it as the Burgeoning Layer Of Abdominal Tearing.

Men won't get this. Sure they get the occasional indigestion, remedied by an inner-fisted baby punch to the sternum area, but it's not The Bloat. Only other women understand the pain and discomfort that's associated with bowling ball weight between the naval and the pelvic bone. Hurts to sit, hurts to stand. And holding the stomach muscles tight in that ever slimming, shoulders back pose - not happening. It hurts too much.

And it's not even a week that I should be bloated.

It so sucks, doesn't it?

Men have no clue. They never ever will.


P.S. 6 weeks from today! EEEEP!!!

There comes a time in evey woman's life when she will no longer suffer from the 'bloat'. What she will suffer from is not pleasant either, but it will make the man in her life wish he had medication to help HIM through it. I call it justice!!!!

LOL @ Martie!!!

Funny you write about this. Just last night the hub asked me what it felt like to give birth. I couldnt even think of how to explain it accurately. But I know one thing - no man would ever live through it.

Men have it so easy...the occasional headache or cold...that's about it! We suffer every damn month of our lives, sometimes for a couple weeks out of each month. It just isn't fair!

Well well well... bloat or not, glad to see you back.

Uuugghh....

Hope all is well with you, girl! Besides that female stuff I mean.

By the way...

All these male bashing comments are making me a little hungry.

Order me a pizza.

It's nice to "see" everyone again. I doubt I'll be posting as regularly as I used to, but I hope to keep up some form of consistency.

Thanks for not completely forgetting about me.

Slick (you'll always be Drib to me) - pizza is on it's way!

If you could please package it in a pill that I could give them, I would appreciate it.

Missed ya, Naive. This is so true. Martie and I were talking about this the other night. Oh and Clew, Martie always told me to tell my husband that giving birth is like pulling your bottom lip over your head. LOL.
