Productivity Has Plummeted

I woke up feeling very queasy this morning and the feeling stuck around for most of the day. I'm remembering everything I didn't like about being pregnant. This is why men and women can never have perfect equality in the workplace - even if there are sufficient maternity leave policies, pumping rooms, and a genuine commitment to family-friendly flexible work arrangements, men will never be pregnant. They will never try to write a brief while nauseated and feeling like they got hit with a brick wall of exhaustion. It's just not the same.

It is so unfair that JP and I can't take turns experiencing this wonderful miracle.
