things your mom didn't tell you about pregnancy...

So if you would have asked me a month ago about my pregnancy with Molly, I would have told you that it was great and easy! It's amazing how quickly you forget about all the pregnancy symptoms! So I've decided to tell all about the ones that have already come back:

1. sleep...or lack there of!
Not only do I wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, sometimes I just wake up...wide awake. I just lay there until I eventually fall back asleep, which makes me sleep really hard, so I am grumpy the next morning!

2. heartburn!
It doesn't matter what I eat, my chest soon starts burning. Luckily I can take meds for it! But it is crazy when I eat a sandwich and 5 mins later, I reach for the tums!

3. I just want to poop!
Constipation...enough said! I'd never been constipated before in my life until I was pregnant with Molly.

4. did I just pee?
Yep, it happens alot when you're pregnant! When you cough, sneeze, or sometimes you have a sudden urge and feel the gush before you make it to the bathroom.

5. gas mask!
I do feel bad for Jonathon sometimes...I have the WORST gas of my life! Can't help it! :)

That's all for now. There are plenty more symptoms but these are the only ones that come to mind at the moment. Going to the doctor in 2 weeks! Can't wait to see little jellybean!

girl, I am SOOOOOOO constipated! Ugh. When I was preggo with Audrie I was more regular, but this time no is the worst!

Congratulations by the way! It is very different for me being preggo the second time around, I am trying to enjoy it! :)

I remember being really constipated with Emma too...hope it gets better for you...go eat some spicy food...of course that won't help with the heartburn though :)
