Things they don't tell you about pregnancy until it is too late:
-heartburn & bloating
-the crazy peeing schedule starts immediately
-curly hair that was finally starting to get long and more wavy abruptly changes course & becomes more curly and frizzy
Also- in these early months, I have this feeling of a lack of control. Like, all I can do is eat and sleep and hope all is going well down there. Shouldn't there be more to it than a few vitamins and a bag of almonds & apricots? And shouldn't I have to go to the doctor at least once a week for... something? a pat on the back at least?
FACT: The people who will be the MOST excited when you tell them you are expecting (aside from the future grandparents) are people who have already kids.
And there will be lots of exclamations about how "Having kids is Just Great!"
This is very encouraging.
Although in hindsight those same people were all just complaining on facebook about cleaning poo out of their sandboxes, so maybe they are just excited to have company at Camp KidsWorld, but still.
