What nobody tells you happens when you become pregnant. - Page 2

post #21 of 33

Not to brag or anything but I must have had the most easiest pregnancies in the world! All the symptoms I just read, I didn't have a single one! No morning sickness, no nothing!

No one told me that constipation during the first trimester is beyond words horrible. No one told me that once I could go to the bathroom, that I'd be crapping out large potatoes (before they are baked), which, of course, led to massive hemorrhoids. Every. single. time.

 

No one told me about diastasis recti or that lovely stretched out, hanging skin after childbirth that will only go away with plastic surgery (if it's bad enough).

I think if you heard all the possible things that can happen to you in pregnancy, you'd be freaked out ;) Luckily no one gets it all (at least I hope not) and for sure not all at once. And for every women who wishes she was told about a symptom, there is another who never had it but something else that no one warned her about:)

 

Anyway, in my case it has been a painful belly button and in the first trimester what I called pregnancy rage:) With my first time I was the sweet preggo lady who cried at sad commercials, but this I've been more like the hulk when vexed:)

I am simultaneously the sappy sweet preggo who cries at commercials, and then has an insane fit of itrational, hormonal rage a minute later. I'm sure I am a joy to be around!

No one told me my feet would grow a full size during my first pregnancy, and I'd need all new footwear to go along with my maternity clothes.

That happened to me too. It really sucks because I already have rather large feet. Now I wear a size 11. Thankfully, that is the largest size that most stores carry(occasionally some carry 12's) and I don't have to special order or anything. I'm tall to go along with it though, so it doesn't look weird or anything. LOL

Nobody ever mentioned that orgasms in the 3rd trimester can cause BH. Poor DH, I had never seen him move so fast the first time that happened!

Sing it. I passed up a shot of pain relief for the stitches and it hurt so much I had to stop holding baby.

That I wanted those drugs sure went into #2s birth plan and it was so much better.

 

Or that my feet would swell after baby and I would have to come home from the hospital in socks, in January. Thank you IV.

 

That if you are worried about baby and poke them to wake up at 2 am, they do not just go back to sleep.

If my mother hadn't left her slippers behind when she visited two months earlier, I, too, would have gone home in socks! Fortunately, the slippers were her old, sloppy ones, and my feet barely squeezed in!

That 'morning' sickness can last all day every day right up until the birth.

 

That it's possible to want the baby but hate being pregnant.

 

That I would completely lose the ability to judge where my body was in space, so much so that I'd bump into people with my bump.

 

That I would find smells so strong that I'd be able to tell all sorts of things I'd rather not know about people (even whether they'd had sex that day.)

 

That I would be unable to cope with the smell of fruit or vegetables without being sick then worry for months about the effects on the baby of eating junk food.

 

That I would feel like I knew my babies long before they were born.

Nobody ever told me that sometimes the kicking hurts so bad from baby that you want to cut off your stomach, that trapped gas feels worse than severe menstrul cramps!
