Pregnancy Truths

Congratulations! You're pregnant! You're embarking on an incredible nine-month journey that will change your life forever. If you're a first-time mom, you are probably equally excited and nervous about what's ahead. Luckily, there are a slew of women who have been there before and are ready to share some of the things they wish they had known about pregnancy.

Beautiful pregnant woman outside

When you're pregnant for the first time you really don't know what to expect. Oftentimes, friends and family who have been there before tend to gloss over things and say something simple like, "Oh, I loved being pregnant!" However, there are some aspects of pregnancy that can come as an utter surprise to women the first time they experience it. Having moms who have been there to share the nitty-gritty details of what they wish they had known about pregnancy can help save another mom-to-be. Here are some things that these moms wished they had known.

People go crazy

Isolated baby blocks

Jennifer B. was surprised when people she didn't know would touch her belly. She wanted to tell them, "When you touch my stomach, you're invading my personal space." Don't be surprised if strangers in the grocery store want to rub your belly.

Everyone has advice

As soon as the world knows you're pregnant, people are going to start giving you advice. Some of it might be sound, other pieces of information incredibly outdated. There is a whole list of things pregnant women "should" and "shouldn't" do. Pregnancy is a great time to figure out what works best for you because the unsolicited advice continues when the baby comes. The best thing to do is to consult your healthcare provider for what is right for you and your pregnancy.

(Not) Everyone poops and morning sickness

Cassie C. wishes people had told her about how constipation is a common side effect of pregnancy. "People tell you about morning sickness, but never tell you about constipation!! It's just as horrible!" You also hear a lot about morning sickness and how it should go away in the second trimester. Lindsay P. was surprised when hers didn't. "I wish I had known that some people throw up for 40 weeks, not just 12. I was convinced I would never stop being nauseous."

You have so much love to give

Some people don't believe you become a mom until you give birth. However, I think you become a mom the second you know you're pregnant. Maria I. says it best, "I wish someone would have told me how much I'd love someone I hadn't met yet." That little baby is a part of you for the entire 40 weeks and it's the closest you will ever be with someone in your life. Enjoy it and feel your heart grow by leaps and bounds daily.

How you might miss it when it's over

During the last few weeks of pregnancy, misery and discomfort tend to come to the forefront. You can't wait to hold your baby and have your body back to yourself. Maria W. says, "Once pregnancy is over, you'll miss it like crazy." So cherish these weeks and months when you have your little one safely inside your belly, and soak up those little nudges. The next chapter is even better, but this one is just as important.
