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…
What was one of your biggest pregnancy surprises?
