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!
For some it is the never ending cravings; but for others it can be loss of appetite or the inevitable heartburn!
You will seek to pee in the most ridiculous places because when you have to go – you haveeeee to gooooo!
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
They are real, whether during pregnancy or after you’ve had your bundle of joy.
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.
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!)
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.
