This year, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Oscars. While every girl I knew squealed and asked what I was wearing I was riddled with anxiety. The day before the Oscars I had a fitting with Dior where I got to try on some beautiful dresses. I was between two dresses: the Carrie Bradshaw all-you-can-eat dress and the Angelina Jolie sexy leg kimono. I really wasn’t sure if I would ever get back to the Oscars so I let my inner Carrie Bradshaw take over and went with the dress with eight pounds of tullle. The fact that I was going to the show was no longer an idea but becoming a reality and like a 13-year-old girl at her birthday party, I had a complete meltdown. Somehow the night before the Oscars I managed to get into an argument with my best friend, my mom and my boyfriend.
I always suspected that becoming a famous actress might be the absolute worst thing for you mental health. I feel like this article solidified that.
A question for anyone who either is pregnant now or has been pregnant.
Please understand that I ask this with absolutely no judgment and am motivated by honest curiosity.
While pregnant did you either:
A) Know the sex of the baby, but decide not to share it with anyone.(I don’t mean that even you waited until they were born to find out. I mean that you and whoever might have been partnered with you knew, but screw everyone else)
B) Have names picked out, but not share those with anyone.
And if you did….what’s up with that?
What motivates those decisions?
Was it that you didn’t want anyone to pressure you out of the name you picked? Do you just like secrets? You didn’t want a sea of blue or pink gifts at the baby shower? You waned to drive your in-laws insane with curiosity?
