My First Embarrassing Pregnancy Story!

Pregnancy does some funny things to you. For example it makes you worry over every single little thing that you put in or on your body. For the first few weeks of pregnancy, I refused to take any medication even if it was on the approved list. That is until the mother of all headaches hit me.

You are allowed to take Tylenol while pregnant, but of course I had none. On my way to work I stopped at our friendly neighborhood Kroger. I desperately searched the pharmacy aisles for Tylenol. There was none! NONE! I stumbled up to the pharmacy counter asked the pharmacists about the Tylenol. She responded, "Oh honey, due to the recall we haven't had Tylenol in months".

Now let's pause the story here. Any sane person would have asked for another recommendation. Not preggo me! What did I do? Oh, I burst into tears. That's right! I cried right there in the middle of Kroger! I am totally not a crier, but I ugly cried over Tylenol that day!

Thankfully, the pharmacist was a bit more sane than I was at that moment. She went to the aisle and picked out the generic Tylenol for me. I thanked her and sniffed my way to the check out line.

I left Kroger with a bottle of pills and a Coca-Cola (don't judge-you can have a little bit of caffeine when your pregnant). As I walked to my car, my sanity was once again restored and I couldn't help but think to myself 'holy cow I just cried (ugly cried) in the middle of Kroger'. I was totally embarrassed, but I couldn't help but giggle when I thought of the series of events that had just happened.

Pregnancy Truth #1) Sometimes you cry for no good reason at all. Sometimes you end of crying for no good reason at all in public places.

I'm just catching up on your blog and wanted to congratulate you on the news of your pregnancy! You and your hubby must be so excited about a baby boy on the way!!

With all those hormones, it's no wonder you cried. I probably would have done the same.

one of my best friends is pregnant with her first, and she's got the "safe" drugs list on her fridge...she says it taunts her.

Forget that! I've done that/been like that for the last three years, and I'm not even pregnant! Trust me,-it's life. (Well, and in your case, hormones,....don't even worry,...) :) Oh, and of course,-CONGRATULATIONS!

Tylenol just isn't the same as advil huh? I am pretty sure I had at least one caffeine drink a day. And I wasn't a freak about it if they refilled my cup in a restaurant since everyone else was getting to drink beer!
