For pregnant women, sometimes the struggles seem endless, but at the end of it all, we can laugh about them.
From the big belly to the swollen ankles, the new wardrobe and hair and nails that never seem to stop growing, pregnant women go through a lot!
You wished someone told you about these pregnancy struggles.
But, the reward is well worth the pain and changes that have to be endured.
The best part of these struggles is when you can sit back and laugh about them!
Here are 6 struggles that all pregnant woman can totally relate to.
Struggles All Pregnant Women Can Relate To
1. Dwelling on pictures from the past
While all women love their baby bumps, every once in awhile we all dwell on the past, especially in regards to how we used to look physically. Pre-baby, our bodies used to look (and feel!) so much different. It can sometimes be hard to accept the changes, but in the end they are so worth it.
2. Random lactation
With pregnancy comes the need for the body to produce milk and sadly, we don’t work like faucets! We can’t turn the milk production on and off and sometimes we’re stuck with leakage during the worst possible scenarios!
3. The emotional roller coaster
Women by nature tend to be more emotional than men but the emotional roller coaster really takes off during pregnancy. One minute you can be crying and the next minute you’re smiling like a mad person. Pregnancy emotions are nothing to mess with!
4. Strangers touching your belly
Seriously, this struggle isn’t one you can always control but it is super annoying! No one rubbed your belly before carrying a child so why do people think it’s ok to do when you’re pregnant? It can be tiresome to tell people to keep their hands off your bump!
5. The insanely weird cravings
Pickles and peanut butter? Ice cream and potato chips? The pregnancy cravings are not only insanely strong but they tend to involve the weirdest food combinations! The pregnancy cravings can drive you, and those around you, absolutely crazy!
6. Morning sickness
The morning sickness that comes along with being pregnant is no fun. Morning sickness aside, the random bouts of throwing up are just as bad! If there is one thing all moms can agree on, it’s that this type of sickness is really no fun!
