Smells Like Teen Spirit

5 ways being pregnant will bring out all of the teen angst you thought you left behind.

You know how when you were a teenager and your mom would ask you things like, “Honey, how was your day?” (because she genuinely cares about you) and you would inevitably end the conversation with something like “Why are you trying to ruin my life??” Have you noticed this rage return in a way you never thought was possible since becoming pregnant? We thought so.

We’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the past and have come to realize that being pregnant was as much of a time warp to our teenage years as we’re ever going to get. Except so much worse because things like stretch marks are involved. But also soooo much better because you actually get an amazing baby after all those hormones are done raging. And you get to wear all that cute maternity clothes in between.

Don’t know what I’m talking about? Oh, well, here are 5 ways being pregnant is totally like being a teen anyway.
