While pregnancy truly is a blessing, and for the most part, it’s an amazing journey. But there are some things nobody tells you about. Here are some of the pregnancy discomforts that most women wished they knew before starting out on this life-changing adventure:
Most annoying pregnancy discomforts ever
- Other people’s cooking will smell awful. And smells you used to love will now make you sick and might even cause unexpected, projectile vomiting.
- You’ll be swollen. All. Over. Your feet will pretty much personify elephangitis, so just get used to the idea.
- You’ll have to get your hubby to deal with embarrassing farts that you just can’t help.
- During the 3rd trimester, you’ll pee every 30 minutes.
- Sleeping will be one of the most uncomfortable parts of your pregnancy.
- Acid reflux will become like a newly found friend.
- You’ll get used to the sciatica pain. Even though it’ll still feel like a hammering on your lower back every time it happens.
- Kidney sores and migraines won’t be a cause for alarm anymore. Instead, they’ll become regular occurrences.
And it doesn’t stop there…
- As you approach the last two trimesters of your pregnancy, you’ll have ZERO sex drive. And this will probably continue until your baby is at least three months old. After that, you’ll carefully have to plan sexual shenanigans.
- Yeast infections will become something that doesn’t faze you anymore.
- Constipation will be a daily issue.
- You’ll always have a sliver or skin sticking out somewhere when you reach your third trimester.
- Fatigue during your first semester will make you regret all the late nights you spent watching movies and just not sleeping as a teen.
- During the last month of pregnancy, the round-ligament pain will drag you down. Getting up and walking around might make you feel like a duck that has been shot in the butt.
- Pregnancy clothes, however comfortable they are, will help convince you that you never want to look this way again.
- You’ll constantly be barraged by total strangers asking the dumbest of questions about your pregnancy.
- You’ll have an instinctive drive to kick everyone and anyone who tries to touch your belly in their groin.
- After 34 weeks in, it’ll be uncomfortable to walk, lie down, sit, and stand around.
- Also at around 34 weeks, you won’t be able to put on your own socks anymore.
- The last few weeks you spend waiting for the arrival of your little one will feel like thirty-seven-billion days. And then some more.
