When I was pregnant I vowed to myself that I would make a list of all the things “they don’t tell you” and tell everyone I know! I don’t know why we live in such a secret society of motherhood, but I think you should know what you’re getting yourself into, or what to expect if you’ve already gotten yourself into it!!
Before I was pregnant I just thought you get pregnant, have a cute pregnant belly, wait a few months, have a sweet little baby and everything just stayed the same, except you had a baby attatched to your hip now… yeah, not so much. I will think of everything I can remember of starting my pregnancy up to this point… I’m warning you now that this list may not be the cutest post…
- Pregnancy is NOT glamorous! It does not feel cute, or comfy, or wonderful. Actually it feels awkward, unnatural, ridiculously annoying at times, overwhelming, and plain old BLAH.
- Morning sickness (as I used to say mourning sickness, because I thought you were mourning the loss of your old life and how you used to feel) feel basically like the worst hang-over you’ve ever had in your life.
