Things People Never Told You ABout being Pregnant...

What are some things no one ever told you about pregnancy?

I'll start:

I didn't know my boobs would look like roadmaps with all the veins!

I didn't know that the bigger you got...the harder it was to (ahem...) clean yourself up after going to the bathroom (both ways!! Chat Icon )

Those two are on my list too Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

I didn't realize just how tired I'd be. I am not a nap person, and lately, I want to sleep all the time.

I didn't know how bad exhaustion would be when i heard people say they were when pregnant.

I didn't realize how expensive maternity clothes were.

I didn't realize your face breaks out like you are a teenager again.

I didn't realize that my groin area (inner part of the hips?) would get so sore that it would feel like I've been riding a horse for 5 hours Chat Icon Chat Icon

My only complaint so far....No one warned me about what prenatals can do to you.

The wiping myself issue...

Feeling SO much pressure "down there" 24 - 7 like I've just done a strenuous workout

Having difficulty putting on bra, socks and shoes, shaving, painting my toe nails...

That moodiness is a big fat understatement. I expected to be a little PMS-ey but I am tough to be around! Chat Icon Chat Icon I either get really angry, really quickly or I'm a blubbering mess. I'm just starting to feel a little normal after being a maniac for the past couple of weeks.

Yeah, this would have been nice to know AHEAD of time!Chat Icon

No one told me that people will feel they can say whatever mean, nasty thing pops into their head about your body just because you are pregnant. For example, "Wow Martha, you're HUGE today!" Chat Icon

No one told me that standing for more than a half hour would make me want to pass out.

Or that keeping hydrated means like 18 bottles of water a day, not just 8 8oz. glasses of water. It's a second job consuming enough liquids!

Re: Things People Never Told You ABout being Pregnant...

-That my boobs would feel like someone used them as punching bags
-That the exhaustion in the beginning would be so bad that after sleeping for 10 hours, I’d need a nap
-That I would bite my husbands head off for insinuating that my backside has become pregnant as well
-And that the newly sprung bumps covering my nips could probably be mistaken for Braille.

That getting PG would instantly get my DH to do anything....he does the laundry, goes grocery shopping with me so I don't have to pack the bags and put them in the car. He makes dinner and cleans up afterwards...he tells me to go and relax.

Although...I know this all will end one day Chat Icon
