Some of these are hilarious! I’m sorry ladies, but I haven’t experienced much of these….yet. Although I will say, the whole gas thing, totally embarassing. DH and I were ‘going at it’ a few nights ago and I couldn’t hold it in any longer. LOL

This isn’t a gross effect, but I’ve developed an ANNOYING case of Carpal Tunnel in my wrist. I hate it. It’s worse at night when I wake up and my whole arm is asleep…not to mention sitting at the computer all day. Ahhhh the joys of child growing. 🙂

@GreenEyedMoon:  It’s not a joke, pregnancy and childbirth are not for the squeamish.  

However, all throughout the pregnancy my DH said two things.  “I don’t want to cut the cord” and “I don’t want to see anything until the baby is out and clean.”  

When it came time for actual delivery, he was all about it, he cut the cord and he watched the whole thing.  I guess after months of cleaning up my puke, seeing the baby born wasn’t so bad…

I’m glad I made you ladies laugh. I laugh at it too. Really there’s worse things that could be happening.  Ya I still have morning sickness and my belly hits the toilet, but I’m finally getting the change to grow a sticky baby and that’s all that matters, right?

Plus I found some anti-bacterial wipes that I can use on my tummy after it hits something gross LOL!

@AprilJo2011:  yup!

Why do I always read these threads? I feel like it’s better to go in blind!

I should start looking for adult diaper coupons now. I guess I’m going to need them when the time comes!

Not Pregnant… but I always creep on the pregnancy boards to get informed for the future… but I laughed reading everyone of them….I love the humor you all have in the not so fun parts of pregnancy.. Im bookmarking this page for when I’m pregnant so I can remember to laugh at myself in those situations!!!!

@Quietserenity:  That’s interesting!  I keep asking DH if he wants to cut the cord and he’s like “no.”  I wonder if he will have a change of heart too….

I never thought to ask DH if he wanted to cut the cord. I just asked and his response was “It’s kind of gross but yeah I’ll cut it” The way he said it was pretty funny. I never thought of it as “gross”.

Agreed to the peeing when I cough or sneeze, but I have not seen this mentioned yet and it’s been BAD for me:

SEX DREAMS, LOL!!!

I had an innapropriate dream about the president & cee-lo green. Obviously I secretly want a little chocolate to my vanilla, LMBO

This totally made my night 😀 Mine is backne, horrible, horrible, horrible backne…I didn’t even have it this bad when I went through puberty! The other one: hemorrhoids:( I never thought I’d be 23 and have one! Also, going through a roll of toilet paper a day– my DH was amazed when we went through a whole package in one week…oops! I’m only part way through 2nd tri…can’t wait for the “snissing” (LOL, thanks mwitter80!) to start… :/ (as a side note, I do love being pregnant despite all the other stuff)

@JewishBride:  Gosh, once a day??! I’m lucky if I get to go once every other day!

Oh the gas… it’s horrendous! I used to hide it from DH… not anymore! I just can’t!

The peeing whilst sneezing/coughing/exertion of any kind – so not cool.

And the crazy amount of discharge. Ugh! No one told me about this part!!

This just made me laugh out loud! I am only 7 weeks pregnant. But the other day I told me Fiance that if i would have known now what i didnt know before we tried for 2 years to have this baby i would have better prepared myself for the — Feeling so tired that i think i might fall over at work, peeing more in one day than i did in one month before i was pregnant,  the STUPID ALL day feeling sick ( sometimes i just want to make myself get sick so i will feel better), crazy amount of discharge, my back hurting like HE**!!! oh and did i mention how tired i am? I think i could sleep for nine months but lets not forget the best of one all……MOODSWINGS!!! holy cow! They are horrible, i always heard people talk about how bad they were but i didnt really believe them i guess. Funny story. We just moved into a House and when we were moving i was just unloading boxes and putting stuff away well i got tired (imagine that) and just started throwing the kitchen stuff in the cabnets to get them out of boxes, later that night i told Fiance that i needed to redo the kitchen. Next morning he gets up before me (imagine that) and i hear him in the kitchen moving the stuff around that i had worked so hard on the day before (not). I got out of bed stormed into the kitchen and was furious!!! I didnt understand why i couldnt do anything right. BLAH BLAH BLAH. I went back to bed and cried. He came in and said “i was only trying to help you said that you wanted to redo it so i did it for you” Okay make me feel even worse. I cried some more. But how freakin crazy can i get? If i get any crazier im moving into a hole until this pregnancy is OVER!!!
