I was prepared for my nipples to change color and gain more “bumps” in/around the aereola but my WTF moment was when I found out I developed a varicose vein on my hooha.  The overall swelling due to baby in that region was a surprise to me too.  I still get upset about it since we have 3 more months to go and I’ve been dealing with it for 2 months already.  My mind keeps asking how that could have started so soon when baby was barely big enough to create that much pressure at the time!

I was not prepared to wake up in the middle of the night and not be able to sleep until I ate (luckily this has gone away).

Or that this early in pregnancy I’d have to pee all the time.

Or that your cup size goes up in the first trimester

Or that it’s not just one craving, the cravings change from day to day and something you love one day might be so revolting the next.

The first trimester blew me away. It was like a three month hangover, and I was so starving and tired I would just start crying. I’m still suprised at how hungry I am all the time. It’s like evil hunger. I’m not even really enjoying it.

The roadmap of blue veins on my boobs.  And the charley horses in the middle of the night right out of nowhere!!

Crying during country songs/ sad commercials…Seriously? 

How bad my nipples/ belly skin itched

My arches flattening in the 3rd trimester to the point that I could barely walk

Heartburn so bad that it felt like I was being stabbed in the back

I was surprised at the force of my morning sickness and how long that lasted. 

Also my water broke THREE times in labor!  I didn’t even know that could happen!

I was stunned when I got round ligament pain in the 2nd trimester, and stunned again at how much it hurt in the 3rd trimester! Ouch!

I’ve been shocked at how much of a forgetful person I’ve become. I’ve lost my rings (found them each time), forgotten countless things, and best of all, last night I left two bags of Starbucks Christmas Blend on the bus… Not the small ones either, the 1lb bags. Yeeah, I’m an idiot.

I’ve been surprised that my skin is itchy.  Also at the emotional force of hormones!

I am only in my second month, but I am surprised by how much my boobs hurt.  They are so painful that I feel like they are my biggest enemy right now and I hate them.  It has been nice that they are growing though.  This is the first time in my life that I could have cleavage if I wanted it. 

Although, the biggest WTH moment I have had is when I read the post the other day about “big girl parts” and what can happen during labor.  Totally FREAKED out about labor and the aftermath.  I wish I could go back to being blissfully unaware…

@troubled: I agree!  It’s crazy waking up in the middle of the night feeling like you are literally starving! 

@StephMay1609: I’ve always prided myself on my great memory, so my horrible memory has been quite the surprise!

@Lozza: Picturing you with chickens is cracking me up, I’m literally laughing out loud!  And partly because I’ve been there so I can only imagine how I looked, too!  HAHA

@chicagowife: You aren’t kidding!  This has been happening to me recently, like the other night I couldn’t sleep because my boobs were itching so much!  LOL

@iHeartTwinkies: My boobs got HUGE right away, they were really tender and I had a hard time getting comfortable when I was going to sleep (not to mention I had to start wearing camisols with anything remotely low cut – BIG difference for me).

They’re better now (or I’ve gotten used to it) but still sometimes when my husband hugs me too hard I’m like “OW!”. Seriously I feel like my baby bump must have gotten misdirected north.
