I admit that I wandered into pregnancy rather blind. While it's true that I have had plenty of friends & loved ones close by who have experienced this maternal bliss themselves, I supposed I simply wasn't paying attention to what they really went through. Either that, or there are certain unspoken aspects to pregnancy that people just don't talk about.
I'm actually going with Door #2 on this one.
Maybe I didn't ask, but at the same time, no one told me about some of the crazy idiosyncrasies of being pregnant.
And so, I am here to bring them to light. I'm not really sure why. Does anyone really want to know all the ridiculous things they will experience when they are pregnant? Doubtful. But there are definitely some things that would have been helpful to know ahead of time, without reading the entire fear-inducing "What to Expect When You're Expecting" from cover to cover.
So, rather than what TO expect, I thought I would share just a bit about what I didn't expect in little installments throughout the summer.
Here's the first-- enjoy...
