Would You Rather: Pregnancy EditionMay 15th

Well, yesterday was serious and I promised you some funny to balance it out. {If you want to know why so serious you can catch up here and here.}

I will have you know that I was up until 1 AM working on what could have been a VERY FUNNY video were it not for the stupid sound being off. Confound technology! Tantalizing us with all the possibilities of awesomeness and then whisking away our dreams in a glitch. Grrrrr.

Story of my life.

And yes, I realize how profound my first world problem really is.

So. Something else. I’ve had these little funnies swirling around in my brain ever since the first round made its debut.

What? You don’t know what I’m talking about? Is it possible that you missed my positively brilliant game? The Would You Rather Game For Parents. Yes, go back and read that to gather your context.

Well anyways, it was so fun crippling everyone with the fear of two horrible choices that I decided to create a sequel, or rather, a prequel for the championship series. Yes, there is going to be a real sequel…maybe two. Now, here’s the rules:

  • You can’t pick “neither.”
  • You must pick one.
  • These are real things.
  • I am not responsible for your anxiety.
  • There’s probably a book out there somewhere that will help if you really are that troubled.
  • It’s better if you have a glass of wine while you play the game.
  • That’s it.

1.) Would you rather be incredibly, horrendously, excruciatingly nauseas for four months or feel perfectly fine but be confined to bed-rest for all nine months?

2.) Would you rather have psychotic mood swings but only gain 25 pounds, or be the most lovable preggo alive…but gain 55 pounds.

Ooh. That one burns, doesn’t it?

3.) Would you rather have boobs the size of Texas but with a small milk supply, or have inverted nipples and a milk supply that could feed a football team?

4.) Would you rather have heartburn or hemorrhoids…for nine months?

5.) Would you rather have nine months of insomnia and an infant who sleeps through the night, or nine months of great sleep and a colicky infant?

6.) Would you rather have gigantic cankles and swollen feet for nine months or have your feet grow two shoe sizes during pregnancy?

7.) Would you rather get stretch marks that look like a grizzly bear attack or vericose veins that look like Google Maps during traffic hour?

8.) Would you rather have a delivery doctor who talks about you in the third person or a midwife who constantly tells you that you’re doing a beautiful thing?

9.) Would you rather your birth coach have rotten egg breath or a birth coach who is distracted by the World Series?

10.) Would you rather the on-call OB be your ex-boyfriend, or the anesthesiologist who gives you the epidural be your high school nemesis?

*******

Alright. You’re all set to play. There is no answer-key. Only the lesser of two evils. Muahahahahahahah!

If you haven’t taken the first test you can get going over here!

If you’re uptight after playing, unwind by imagining yourself on the ultimate vacation cruise. But wait…it’s actually a possibility! Enter the giveaway! Also, have you seen the incredible “Before” pictures from my Sherwin Williams project? People have asked if it was staged…it wasn’t. The big reveal is coming up but in order to fully appreciate it you must see the BEFORE!

    I squirmed reading this. That’s how you know it’s good stuff.

    Haha!! Now I am dreading getting pregnant, in the distant future.

      It really is a trying time, there’s no doubt. But some women swear its all wonderful. I do not.

    Ack! Some of those were just awful. Especially the last one.. Eek!!!

    Just so you know – #9 actually happened at your birth. Your dad gobbled up the scrambled egg breakfast they offered me and then bent over me solicitously to ask if there was anything he could do for me. I about lost it right there and then. And then… no it wasn’t a world series game… he found someone he knew in the hallway and started chatting. Meanwhile, my water broke and the fun and games began, with my feeble calls for help going unheeded. So yeah… the next time around, Aunt Karee was my real birth coach:) (do I win anything for having both choices happen at the same birth??:)

      I knew it happened at one of yours…that’s where I got the inspiration 🙂 So gross of dear old dad! hahaha

    Wow. I’m glad that I had my friend Chardonnay in hand for this one. Where *do* you come up with these brilliantly evil thoughts, my love?

    • hillary May 16, 2013 at 5:01 am #

      I don’t know. A favorite pastime of mine involves creating elaborate scenarios in my head and then choosing my best fate. Oh, and I’ve been pregnant twice. I would love to hear some would you rathers from the mother of twins! Thats gotta be some real sick stuff! hehe

    Oh my goodness, my hands are sweating (but I am giggling from your bullet point intro – awesome). I chooooooooose – my IUD. 🙂

      Well played, my friend. Well played.

    Why is it that as I laughed at all of these hilarious questions, I spent most of the time nodding my head going “Oh yeah…. I remember that”… because quite frankly- I believe I went through almost all of these plus SOME. 😉 (minus a few that I couldn’t believe would actually happen!)

  8. Teem May 23, 2013 at 11:03 am #

    Definitely playing this and sharing. Hilarious!

    • hillary May 23, 2013 at 11:10 am #

      Thanks! Would love to hear your choices 🙂

    This is great! I found your blog via Pinterest and am totally using this game at a friend’s shower. I added one more question (she’s been both extremely nauseous AND on bedrest once she felt fine. Oy!): Would you rather find out at delivery that the ultrasound technician mixed up the gender or missed the twin?

    number 10 is pure evil
