  • That when you start to get big you walk from side to side. the late night pains in your sleep that wake you up. The way you eat everything you see and if it's someone else you still trying to get there food. and crying all the time

  • No one ever told me acne was a part of pregnancy. And I'm not talking face pimples. I had acne in places NO ONE should have acne in. And the worst was the ones that popped up right in the crease between my butt and leg... SO PAINFUL. it hurt to sit certain ways. When I asked my doctor he said acne like I had was a sign of a boy. I wanted a boy so I was happy to deal with it but OUCH!!!
    0o0o and the feeling like your about to wet yourself when the baby does a summersault (sp whatever)

  • I already knew about the peeing issues...thank God someone makes those panty liners.

    What no one told me about was Bell's palsy flaring up for some women in pregnancy. I had some mild trouble with it. My left eye was drooping, but my right eye was fine. I looked drunk half of my pregnancy.

    Also, I had problems with a little "unknown" hormone called the Relaxin Hormone. Look that up on the web to get an idea of the mayhem it causes!

    Delivery was the easiest part of being pregnant in my opinion! LOL

  • i wasn't told about leg cramps, nightmares about your unborn baby (i had my baby in the woods and sat him on a rock and walked away)... and i wasn't told that bleeding wasn't normal until i went into early labor and bled like a heavy period =/

  • no one told me about how hard it is to be 6months prego and working; i'm a cashier n i have to be on my feet all day n it's the worse needless to say the constant running to the bathroom peeing is the worst part of pregnancy!

  • The leg cramps! They were TERRIBLE! For some reason I sneezed alot too.
    The one thing that people neglected to tell me (and that really pissed me off) was when the nurses come in after the baby is born and push on your tummy so you dont get clots. that hurt like hell and I was NOT expecting it.

  • 0o0o the dreams... Yea no one told me about those. I had a dream I was 3 months and delivered him while walking through the mall. He just fell out. And I knew he shouldn't be out so I wrapped him up and tried stuffing him back in. But in my dream he was a boy so I swore from that moment on I was having a boy and I was right
