“From my mom: I paralyzed her from the waist down for a few hours because I decided to take a nap on her spinal cord in the third trimester. The doctor’s response was “yeah you’ll be able to move again once they wake up.” Pregnancy is pure body horror.”




“Nosebleeds. Not currently pregnant, but when I was, I got nosebleeds every few days during the first and second trimesters.”





“Your body produces a hormone called relaxin that helps loosen your pelvis in preparation for birth. Some women get waayyy too much too soon and it loosens everything to the point you lose mobility and every day all day is painful. Also your body pushes so hard during birth you can feel yourself s@#t your own @$$hole out.”




“I wish someone would have warned me about the constipation. Corollary: I wish someone would have warned me that “fiber supplement” does not equal “stool softener.” Today, we’re at 26 weeks gestation.”





“During labor the “water breaking” is not one rush of liquid. it’s continuous and can occur for several hours. it’s horrendous and messy and incredibly awful to deal with. it feels like peeing but you have zero control over anything and if you tense up then everything is much more painful and weird feeling. Nobody ever told me that and i was VERY surprised to find out for myself.”




“The stuff that stays with your body afterwards. I developed allergies after I had my second. My feet definitely got bigger. Hormones are no joke.”




“I wish someone had told me that no, your body does not magically go back to normal once the baby is out. You have weeks of healing, either your ripped vagina or cut open stomach, your boobs are still on baby mode and have a whole new set of problems now, pooping will be terrifying lol depression risks are higher, just a lot of stuff continues on after the baby. I don’t know WHY people insist on visiting right after delivery. I am tired, I am busy with this baby, I am tore up from the floor up, please come in a month when I can at least have some sort of a routine.”




“Hair loss! After I had my kid I lost a ton of hair. I would pull fists full of hair during my showers. I thought there was something wrong with me because no one told me about this. Went to Google, totally normal and it happens to everyone. It grows back eventually and you’ll go through an awkward baby hair phase.”




“My f@#king boobs hurt so bad. I hit one in my sleep and woke up in excruciating pain. Like…wtf. I knew they got bigger, but the pain was a surprise.”




“That cravings aren’t just food. I craved dirt, particularly beach sand. The smell of the beach was excruciating, I just wanted to shovel handfuls into my mouth. I never ate dirt or sand and the craving went away when baby was born.”




“The sickest joke of all: you stop being able to sleep way before the baby gets here. Everyone loves to tell me to “sleep now while I can” but pregnancy leads to unexplained insomnia and I’m a total wreck already.”




“Your hormones are crazy, literally making anything and everything that happens to your body a pregnancy symptom. Bloody nose? pregnancy. Hands dry? pregnancy. Itchy skin? pregnancy. Pregnancy is the wild f@#king west yall.”




“Baby kicks don’t feel like butterflies . They feel like something crawled across your skin quickly; but from the inside.”




“No one ever told me about the “3rd delivery” aka your first poop. I was struggling for so long.”




“The attention. I’m an introvert and I mostly try to keep to myself at work but that’s impossible now. I was pretty small before I got pregnant and I’m now 30 lbs heavier so I’m really showing. People from other departments come and ask me how I’m doing, how far along I am, when the baby is due, what the gender is, if I’ve picked out a name, etc. It’s exhausting.”




“Not everyone falls in love instantly . I like mine but didn’t fall in love till after a year.’

I don’t think my kids’ mom had any of these issues. Ob-Gyn told her she should get pregnant and have babies as a full time job.

A lot of pimples because of hormones. You even get them in between your legs.
