“Pregnancy Rhinitis refers to the uncomfortable condition of severe nasal congestion – a stuffy nose – that troubles many women during pregnancy.”
Yeah. Soak that in.
I love being pregnant. I cannot imagine how any woman could go through this and not believe in God. It is incredible and so completely worth every minor inconvenience when compared to the reality. As women, we get the opportunity to create life and grow human bodies; a responsibility taken on by Heavenly Father and Christ, who then shared it with us. Awe-inspiring.
I would not trade this experience for anything… but can I just say, that no one ever mentioned to me the distinct possibility that I might not be able to breathe out of my nose for the next 6 months. Not to mention, the sneezing, coughing, headaches, and ever-glamorous (Yeah. I just sang the Fergie song in my head to ensure that word was correctly spelled. Judge me, why dontcha!) uncontrollable leaking of snot. Slightly less awe-inspiring. But still… oh so completely worth it!
