I Said I Wouldn't Do It, But Then I Did.

When I first found out I was pregnant with my firstborn, almost 7 years ago, I quickly became a sponge for all sorts of advice (both solicited and unsolicited) thrown at me. Within a few days, I had made a mental list of things I would never do while pregnant.

Things like drink alcohol, sit in hot tubs, go tanning, and eat sushi. I promised myself to never wear maternity jean overalls and to never be caught wearing my husbands old tee shirts.

Now, since I’m pregnant for the fourth time, I’ve found myself bending the rules just a bit. I drink caffeine. I *might* have colored my hair. And last pregnancy, no mater how hard I tried not to, I gained over 35 lbs in the course of 40 weeks.

Instead of feeling bad for myself, I decided to commiserate with my friends on twitter. I recently asked my friends on Twitter a question:

What is something you swore you would never do while pregnant, but then found yourself doing?

The answers were fantastic! Some serious, some super funny, and all totally honest.

What was one thing you swore you would never do while pregnant, and then you did?
