fun post!

Okay ladies, since pregnancy is more intense on some women than others, I decided to do a fun-post!

What do you wish you would have known(about pregnancy) before you got pregnant?

I'll go first! I wish someone would have told me about being SO picky over food, whenever I would have eaten anything pre-pregnancy.

I wish I would've known how uncomfortable and painful pregnancy can be especially trying to sleep! Lol and I wish I would've known that morning sickness can last your whole pregnancy. My book lied to me about that one! I'm happy I'm getting to experience all the good things like my baby moving and hearing that beautiful heartbeat tho

Oh, and how they say you have more energy in your second trimester than your first? NOT TRUE!

How uncomfortable it is, how gassy i would be, that it makes you break out and makes you really grouchy and leaves you with absolutely no patience or energy!

About how moody & extra irritated I am oh & my many food aversions LOL

Haha the designated driver thing is definitely true. Unless your friends already have kids, you're destined to lose allllll of your friends lol and the heartburn and indigestion is HORRIBLE!

That you shouldn't complain about feeling old until you've been pregnant ha ha!!! Now I see why old people complain about their aches and pain!!

There is a ton, but mostly how your vag will actually look different and even hurt from all the extra blood in your body.
