10 HONEST TRUTHS ABOUT PREGNANCY


I am currently 19 weeks pregnant and wanted to post a little something about the actual truths of pregnancy; this is not meant to scare you, just shed a little truth. If you missed my pregnancy announcement you can find it here. Enjoy ;)

1. Morning sickness is not morning sickness at all. It is ALL DAMN DAY sickness. No kidding! Nausea does not ease after you have been sick either. It's great!

2. You look bloated and round before you even have a bump. Honestly I swear I was bigger at 6 weeks than I am at 19 weeks. So weird. But everyone that has been pregnant has told me about the dreaded bloat.

3. It's exhausting growing a tiny human. Exhausting. Normally I love to sleep anyway but I could honestly sleep all day every day and still be tired at the moment.

4. It's suuuuper hard to get comfortable. Just prepare yourself for 40 weeks of uncomfortableness.

5. It is the best thing EVER to feel your baby move in your belly. And it feels nothing like people say it does. It's a very distinctive, "oh wow, thats baby" feeling. Kinda like when you have a smear test and its a weird feeling up behind your belly? Yeah it's similar. It can also make you feel sick when the baby is moving loads deep inside your belly. I was sick on myself this morning :)

6.Ultrasound scans can HURT. Yup, never knew this until it happened to me. Baby girl is a wriggler and they have to jab her to get her to move into the correct position for measurement. Also, they have to press hard sometimes and it really really hurts. 

7. It's like being budda. People want to touch your belly and smooth you for good luck. It's so weird the first couple of times but you do get used to it haha. 

8. You get emotional. Very emotional. Like I can cry at anything. Everything pisses me off. The littlest thing can make me super angry. I get hangry, alot. It's kinda like being on your period but continuous. 

9. The floor is very, VERY far away. You drop something whilst pregnant? Its gone.

10. Get used to not seeing your vajayjay! Honestly. It's gone. Disappeared. Vamoosh. I did have a nicely kept vaj up until my bump blocked my way and now god knows what it looks like down there. Am I embarrassed? Nope. Am I scared to see what it looks like in another 4 months? Very! 

Hope you enjoyed this little taste of pregnancy realness. In all honestly it is hard. Some people have harder times than others and some enjoy every single part of it; but pregnancy is such a beautiful thing to experience, the good and the bad. Your growing a tiny human!! Huge pat on the back for you, and a back rub while I'm there ;) god knows you need it.
