Tuesday Tweets: Moms Share Their Biggest Pregnancy Surprises

Pregnancy surprises from Twitter moms!

When considering getting pregnant, I think most women think they know what to expect.  We all hear about the potential for morning sickness, fatigue, mood swings, cravings – the works.  But reading and hearing about pregnancy doesn’t hold a candle to actually experiencing it firsthand.

A few things that have surprised me over the last 28 weeks?  That during week nine I would threaten to kill anyone who brought a raw tomato within ten feet of me.  Or that choosing a name would be so difficult.  And that just when I thought I was completely and madly in love with my husband, our baby made me love him just a little bit more.

Yesterday, I asked my Twitter friends what some of their biggest pregnancy surprises were.  It should come as no surprise that every answer was as different as every pregnancy…
