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.
