The Good, The Bad and The Untold...

written March 14, 2011

Well, I am going to be open and honest here...and if you don't want to hear it, don't read it. I use this as a bit of a journal to look back on; and I feel it is also important that moms to be out there know the whole truth ;-)

Pregnancy and Symptoms.
Of course there are many things that you are told or that you hear of through pregnancy but there are some that go untold. Not everyone gets the same symptoms, but for me, these are some I have experienced somewhere amidst my three pregnancies...
This list really could be PAGES long, but to begin, here are some of the joys:

1) Nausea
2) Puking
3) Sore Boobs
4) Growing Boobs
5) "Thickening" Waist
6) Dry Skin
7) Cramping
8) Acne Breakouts
9) Swelling / Water retention
10) Gas...yep its true
11) Constipation
12) Extreme tiredness
13) Middle of the night wakings and cant get back to sleep
14) Easily winded (literally even walking up a few stairs)

I think for now, those are the main ones...and its only 5 weeks! There is no such thing as the pregnancy glow in the first trimester!

For those of you that haven't read "Belly Laughs" by Jenny McCarthy...it is pretty funny and well written! She also has a "Baby Laughs" that is equally as good.
