TRUTHS OF PREGNANCY

  1. People are nicer to you when you are pregnant. Especially men and old ladies.
    They give you their seats, hold doors open for you, help you with anything you might be carrying, and will even let you cut in line at the bathroom.
  2. Even though they are generally nicer, it somehow makes people think it's ok to say inappropriate things to you.
    Yes, I know what causes this and my social life is just fine, thanks.
  3. The pants are awesome.
    I was a silly, silly girl with my first pregnancy, refusing to wear maternity pants until I couldn't get away with it anymore (like 20-ish weeks). With baby number 3, I broke out the maternity pants as soon as I saw that little blue line!
  4. A lot of gross stuff happens.
    ...stuff no one tells you about.
  5. You don't really need to eat for two, but your appetite with heartily disagree.
    So my doctor tells me that the additional calories you need equate to an apple and a glass of milk. Um, yeah. Ok.
  6. There comes a point when just breathing makes you out of breath.
    It's like you become so full of baby that there's no room for air.
  7. Your body will never be the same.
    But, man, is it worth it.
  8. It's pretty much a free pass to get out of anything you don't want to do.

  9. It's really 10 months long but no one talks about that.

  10. Post pregnancy amnesia is a convenient way to help you decide to have another child (or 3). As hard as pregnancy is, when you are thinking about having another baby, your brain flips a switch and you forget everything it entailed!
