Everyone knows pregnancy is not exactly a cake walk (although it may involve copious amounts of cake, you do you!). But though the books and blogs and YouTube videos may prepare moms-to-be about "what to expect while you're expecting," there are many aspects of the experience that these resources fail to mention. The only way to get the real unvarnished truth about pregnancy is to hear directly from women who've been through it.
1.) From creativeandwonderful:
Nosebleeds. Not currently pregnant, but when I was, I got nosebleeds every few days during the first and second trimesters.
2.) From AbsolXGuardian:
From my mom: I paralyzed her from the waist down for a few hours because I decided to take a nap on her spinal cord in the third trimester. The doctor's response was "yeah you'll be able to move again once they wake up." Pregnancy is pure body horror.
