It’s funny how vividly I can remember my first pregnancy. It was over 7 years ago and I can still remember the feeling when the pregnancy test turned positive — all of those emotions just flooding through my head.
Although I read a lot, I still had no idea what to expect and tended to believe in the scare-us-into-doing-nothing rules of pregnancy. It was stressful and when I became pregnant again, a lot of the rules that I had for myself were no longer a factor because I knew more about what to expect.
It’s fun talking to first-time pregnant mamas now, because a lot of their fears and quirks are so similar to what I experienced during my first pregnancy. I’ve noticed, though, that many of the quirks tend to disappear when they’re pregnant again and are no longer a first-time mama-to-be.
Check out these 8 quirks that are pretty much unique to first-time moms-to-be:
