I like surprises, but only if they’re good. If they’re bad, I don’t like surprises. Lately I’ve been getting the dish from one of my friends about all of the things they DON’T tell you about pregnancy (or the time soon-there-after).
First off… You’re actually pregnant for 10 months? Waaah? 9 months, ok maybe, but 10 months? Forget it.
When you’re water breaks, it doesn’t come out all in one gush. Apparently it keeps going and going. I’ll have to remember to buy a bag of Depends. (And as you can see from my Dream post I’ve been having nightmares about this one).
Apparently there’s a “plug” that comes out about a week before your water breaks. I’m not sure I’m ready to Google that fact yet, I hear it’s pretty gross.
You don’t just sit in bed the whole time you’re in labor. You walk, apparently sometimes even crawl around.
Every time you hear a baby crying… Even on TV, your boobs will leak (or spray).
Breast feeding hurts.
Thrush? Something about it transferring to boobs?… Don’t wanna know.
Your feet grow! My feet are already a size 11 so I hope that’s not true!
Afterpains… I guess it’s pain after pregnancy, and can hurt worse than labor?!!?
The Epidural gives you the shakes.
