Of course you knew being pregnant and delivering a baby was hard. You just didn’t know how hard it was exactly.
Here are some secrets about pregnancy nobody told you before. And unless you are a Mom, you wouldn’t know these to be true.
1. Morning sickness and vomiting are actually a “good” sign of pregnancy. The sicker you are, the better because it means there are plenty pregnancy hormones in your body.
2. Hormonal changes mean you might start to hate your husband
3. Your sense of smell might become so sensitive, you can start hating the smell of everything, even that soap in your bathroom
4. You might have insane food cravings and get hungry all the time. But get ready to throw up once you take a bite of what you were craving.
5. Not just your tummy, but your entire body might get swollen during those nine months especially your feet
6. Your abs basically split apart to make room for the baby
7. And your skin? It stretches way beyond it’s limits to expand and make space for the baby leaving ugly stretch marks to remind you forever that you are a Mom now!
8. And while your baby movements may feel awesome as shown in the movies, they can hurt a lot!
9. Before you go into labor, you will most probably have Braxton-Hick’s contractions because your body feels like practicing for the real thing.
10. While Braxton-Hick’s practice contractions try to prepare your body, the horrible pain of the real labor is not even close to it.
11. What’s more horrific is that you might even poop on the hospital bed while pushing your baby out. IN FRONT OF ALL THE STAFF!
12. And do you know how high the chances are for your baby to poop inside you during birth? Very high!
13. The doctor will actually tear you up during birth to make room for the baby to pass out…
That is called episiotomy.
14. And the torture episiotomy brings is: stitches on the worst body part ever!
15. When you have finally delivered the baby and think everything’s over, you get to know there is one more thing left; delivering the placenta.
