No One Told Me…
Yes, we all hear that pregnant women crave crazy things like pickles and ice cream and some experience morning sickness, but there’s SO MUCH MORE that goes along with pregnancy. This is to give the future mommy-to-bes some insight beforehand and I would love to hear from mothers if there’s anything else that should be added to the list. Here is for what I’ve experienced so far:
-“Morning” sickness is NOT only in the morning…such a tricky thing to call it. 🙄 I had it all day, everyday from about weeks 6-12.
-Morning sickness feels like you have a hangover.
-You’ll want to literally sleep for days in your first trimester. Before I found out I was pregnant, I could never catch up on sleep and I kept saying, “I just need two days to sleep.”
-Your pants/skirts/shorts will start to feel too tight even before the baby bump reveals itself. Just for a little bit, I was stuck in an awkward phase since I was too small for maternity clothes and too big for my regular clothes. I thought about buying some pants a size up, but since it was pretty warm out, I just stuck with wearing dresses faithfully (preferably ones I didn’t have to wear a bra with). However, this got pretty boring for me.
-You’ll feel so much heavier waaaaay before you look it.
Needless to say, even going through all of this, I am really enjoying every single part of it. Even the morning sickness! I just LOVE the idea that I am caring for our baby and cannot wait to meet him or her! ❤️
