what was the one thing you wish u woulda known b4 u got pregnant

I always thought it was a joke when people said they couldn't see their feet when they got pregnant. I later found out that wasn't a joke. I really couldn't see my toes let alone bend down to touch them. What is it u wish u would've known?

  • hmmmm lots of things
    how much morning sickness sucked,
    that an episotomy hurts way more than you think,
    and how much you'd love the screaming bloody mess the nurse just laid on you chest (that ones the best one) because you never truly know what love is till you get to actually hold the kicking little astronaut.

  • That your body doesn't go right back to normal =(
    That you poop when you're pushing
    That you'll never sleep again- at least it feels that way =)

  • That I'd puke during labor and everyone left the room but my mom to hold the bag for me. lol We laugh about it now but at the time I had a room full of friends and family and they all jetted out the door when I said I was going to puke. LOL
