Maternity Gone Wild!

Being pregnant has it's benefits. Well, there is first and foremost the the end of pregnancy you get this tiny little adorable creature that you look at for the very first time and your heart melts in a way you never imagined could happen to you. But...what about before that moment? What about during all those months of crazy fluctuating hormones that cause you to be happy one moment and cranky the next? What about all those insane cravings in the middle of the night and the desire to eat things you didn't even like until now? Swollen ankles, aching back, being very tired, and oh, let us not forget morning sickness! What can possibly make it worse is unsolicited advice and questions from strangers! If it's not bad enough to be terribly ill with morning sickness, the last thing you want and need is for every mother you know telling you either that they had it worse, or that they were never sick a moment during their entire pregnancy. I can only wish that when I was last pregnant, 23 plus years ago, I had found the TeewitMaternity Shop! This shop has a comeback for everything!
Let them know right from the start that you are suffering from fluctuating hormones and so perhaps they should just back off! Here's a T-shirt to say just that!

Suffering from morning sickness? Here's one for that as well!

And, if you're tired of being told you are's a T-shirt to let them know, if they are about to say such a thing, just don't!
Perhaps the worst thing to hear when pregnant is someone else's labor "horror" stories. Just what a mom to be wants to hear! Even if you did have a tough labor or delivery, it's definitely the time to remember the saying..."If you dont' have something nice to say, don't say anything at all."
