@JessesGirl:  It seemed to happen almost instantly…and I’m in pretty good shape too.  I thought something was wrong, turns out perfectly normal.  Nice to know I’m not alone.  🙂

@mshoagie:  I have sports induced asthma but walking up a flight of stairs has never been a problem. Running up a flight of stairs is a completely different story though. So glad it is normal. I have been trying not to use the elevator at work. I may have to the farther along I get. I am only 10 weeks now.

I don’t know if this is just me being weird, but I have woken up with a massively gross, ‘crusty’ nose for the last 13 weeks. EVERY MORNING. I don’t have a cold {well, now at least} and I’m feeling fine… but this nose thing. It’s like I need to go in and shovel it out before I feel normal in the mornings. I heard nasal congestion & what-not is normal, but I wasn’t expecting it to last this long.

Also.. the cramps. People tell you that some cramping is normal – but I automatically panic when I get the strong ones. Also, getting up and sitting down too quickly = ouch. They should really warn you about this.

@Mrs. Jaguar:  I TOTALLY second the getting up/sitting down thing!  I freaked out the first few times that I did this!  I would jump up off of the couch, and it felt like something ripped inside my stomach and I would just double over.  My doctor said just to get up more slowly because everything in there’s trying to move around and figure it all out and you can’t move faster than your insides do lol.

@MissBMarie1428:  Yes! It scared the life out of me, I felt like I ripped something in two the first time. I’m not showing yet, other than pudgy bloat, but I feel like I have to be careful with movements already!!

This is bringing back a lot of memories! One thing AFTER having my son that nobody warned me of is that no longer feeling him moving around all day took awhile to get used to and kind of made me a little sad in a strange way.

@alaydelette:  I have felt those vibrations a few times over the last two weeks, I am 15 weeks today. I am glad you mentioned this bc I had no idea what it was, or if I was crazy. I would assume that the floor was vibrating, or I had my phone in my pocket until I realized that it was coming from my own body. So weird. I wasn’t sure if it was the baby moving or not. I have not felt the baby move yet.

@cbee:  LOL, that was most of my first trimester. So freaking starving I was shaky and sweaty and going to pass out, and then super nauseous as soon as I ate!

1. I wish I’d known that some people are clueless about what not say to pregnant ladies. I’ve gotten the “You must be due any day now” and “Are you sure there’s only one of them in there?” from about five months in. Even though I don’t think these people are trying to be cruel, it just doesn’t feel good to hear that when you already feel gigantic and know you’re only going to get bigger. I think women who are carrying in a way that makes them stay fairly small also get annoying comments like “wow, you’re so tiny, are you sure the baby is ok?”

2. Your hair and nails will not automatically become perfect. I’m already lucky in the hair department, but my nails have always been absolute crap and have been my whole pregnancy. They still break, peel, and chip constantly!

3. Getting kicked in the bladder, full or not, is a feeling unlike any other. My baby seems to get annoyed if mine starts to get full and he’ll start pummeling away at it like, “Hey, it’s getting cramped in here, go pee already MOM!”

4. I didn’t know quite how wonderful it would be to watch my husbands face light up when he has his hand on my belly and the baby moves, he’s so excited to be a dad 🙂
