1. Pregnancy
That angelic glow, the magic of knowing you're growing a beautiful baby... Ha. Maybe that's true for some women, but for me, pregnancy was a literal pain. Back pain, hip pain, ligament pain... The list of reasons I hated being pregnant goes on. As if three months of feeling like I had the flu wasn't enough. In fact, at a recent baby shower I started to get nostalgic and a dear friend looked me straight in the eyes and said, "Stop. You hated being pregnant!"

She's (mostly) right.
