And mamas, before I go on, please don’t be shy to add to this list in the comments section below:

 

So, Here goes:

Pregnancy is HARD!!
I know moms especially some movie stars make it look so glamorous and effortless. I found out that pregnancy is a whole different ball game from day 1!

 

It is okay to admit that Pregnancy is NOT EASY for you:
Most people feel like they are ungrateful or just plain complaining if they admit that pregnancy is not easy. Oh well, let it all out!

 

Appetite Rollercoaster:

For some it is the never ending cravings; but for others it can be loss of appetite or the inevitable heartburn!

 

Peeing:

You will seek to pee in the most ridiculous places because when you have to go – you haveeeee to gooooo!

 

Belly-rubbing Crew:

Well meaning people are so thrilled to see a big belly. Please do not rub the belly even if the pregnant lady says it is ok.

 

You will look pregnant:

Whether the difference will be huge or not. You will look pregnant! If you didn’t look pregnant at the 1st or 2nd semester,   wait for it…

 

Wobble, wobble, wobble:

This is bound to happen. Buy comfortable shoes

 

Your belly after delivery will look pregnant:

This was a shock to me

 

Hemorrhoids:

They are real, whether during pregnancy or after you’ve had your bundle of joy.

 

Boogie, Boogers:

Have a tissue handy because you will be picking and plucking.

 

What’s with the skin:

From teenage acne to skin sag to stretch marks to black line on your belly. Be ready to say hello to skin changes.

 

Hello! “Farting-machine”:

 You get the picture!

 

Say goodbye to Sleep:

It is either you are looking for a comfortable sleep position all night or sleep won’t just come to you. Oh by the way, it gets worse when the little one arrives…(Just giving you heads-up!)

 

Compromised vision:

You will wonder what is wrong with your vision, don’t worry it is the pregnancy!

 

Getting back into your pre-pregnancy shape is hard work:

The truth is that asides from the discipline of losing weight, you now have a newborn which means you are too tired and uninspired to exercise.

 

These are my Top 15 Honest Truths about Pregnancy.

Despite all these, being mom is such a great privilege and the most unimaginable precious thing EVER!
