Mary Lynn Rajskub: First trimester felt like 'a really bad hangover'


ActressMary Lynn Rajskub, 36, recently announced that she is expecting a baby in July with boyfriend Matthew Rolph. Now four months along, Mary Lynn looks back on her first trimester — but not with fondness!

I feel great. I was feeling kind of crappy for three months — like I had a really bad hangover.

I’m really excited. I’m still trying to wrap my mind around it. Even talking about it is so new. Having a baby completely changes your point of view on life. Taking care of somebody else rather than putting yourself first — that’s huge.

As for her popular character Chloe — who had just found out she was pregnant when we last left the series — the 24 star laughs and says,

We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. You know I have a big computer that I sit behind!
