Top 10 Things No One Tells you About Pregnancy

The Top 10 Things About Pregnancy Nobody Tells You About (But I Will!)

Hey there mom-to-be, let's have a heart-to-heart about something nobody really talks enough about in pregnancy: YOU! Sure, we all know pregnancy is a beautiful journey, but let's be real—it's also filled with many unexpected surprises along the way. So, grab your favorite pregnancy snack and get cozy, because I'm about to spill the tea on the Top 10 pregnancy secrets nobody tells you about (but which you really, really should know about).

  1. Emotions on Overdrive

    Buckle up, mama, because pregnancy hormones are like a roller coaster ride for your feelings. One minute you're feeling on top of the world, and the next, you're tearing up at a cute puppy video. Embrace the emotional whirlwind and remember: it's all part of the miraculous journey.

  2. Cravings and Aversions Galore

    Get ready for some serious food adventures! Out of what may feel like nowhere, you might suddenly find yourself in a deep craving for the weirdest combinations (embrace it!) —hello, chips and ice cream! On the flip side, your previously-favorite dish might now make you want to run for the hills. Trust me when I say your taste buds are likely about to go on their own little pregnancy adventure.

  3. Hair and Skin Surprises

    Your hair and skin might decide to join in on the pregnancy fun too. Some lucky mamas get the gorgeous, voluminous hair of their dreams, while others experience unexpected changes. Don't fret if your hair gets a bit wonky or your skin decides to rebel—it's all part of the temporary transformation.

  4. The Super Sniffer

    Prepare to become a scent detective, my friend. Pregnancy can give you a heightened sense of smell, making you a near superhero at detecting odors. Just be warned, some smells might suddenly become a little overwhelming. Fresh air will become your best friend if they do!

  5. Relationship Ripples

    Growing a tiny human can bring some interesting dynamics to your relationships. Your partner might have a hard time understanding your pregnancy quirks, and you might find yourself feeling all sorts of emotions. Remember, communication is KEY, and don't hesitate to share your (true) feelings and needs.

  6. Body Changes, Oh My!

    Your body is going through some incredible changes (spoiler alert), and it's normal to feel a little thrown off. Swollen feet, stretch marks, and backaches are all part of the journey. Embrace your changing body and treat yourself with extra care and love - each and every day.
 You will need it! And remember too that growing a human is serious stuff. But trust me when I say it is all sooooo worth it!!

  7. The Main Event

    Let's talk about the highly anticipated big event for a moment —a.k.a. giving birth. While we all hope for smooth sailing, it's essential to be prepared for various possibilities. Labor can be intense, but remember that countless women have gone through it and emerged as superhero moms. Educate yourself, make a birth plan, and trust in your body's super power to do it's thing (it has been preparing for this moment behind the scenes after all :)!!

  8. The Postpartum Ride

    After baby arrives, get ready for a whole new adventure: the postpartum phase. Postpartum is a time of major adjustment, exhaustion, and immense love. TAKE IT EASY ON YOURSELF!! Healing takes more time than you think, and I cannot recommend stronger that you get comfortable asking for help and support from loved ones around you.

  9. Embracing the Unexpected

    Life with a newborn is full of a million (+) surprises, and it's normal to feel overwhelmed. The blowouts, the sleepless nights, the endless crying—it's all part of the incredible journey. Remember!! You are NOT alone! Reach out to us, join other support groups, and share your experiences with friends and family. We're all in this together!

  10. The Unconditional Love

    Amidst the chaos and surprises, there's one thing that shines brighter than anything—the unconditional love you'll feel for your little one. It's a love that defies words and fills your heart in ways you never imagined. Treasure each moment because this love will carry you through all those sleepless nights and the challenging days. It's a bond that will grow stronger with each smile, giggle, and milestone.

So, there you have it—the Top 10 pregnancy secrets nobody talks about, but that I feel overly inclined to share with you. Yes, absolutely every pregnancy (and every pregnancy journey) is unique, and it's more than okay to embrace the unexpected. From the emotional roller coasters to the food cravings; and from the changes in your body to the many postpartum challenges you may encounter, you are 100% not alone in this adventure. Reach out to other moms, seek support from your loved ones, and don't forget to take care of you along the way too. (CANNOT STRESS THAT ENOUGH!). We at rumbly are always here for you too.

On final note, some words of wisdom that I learned along the way: embrace the surprises, stay positive, and get ready for the most incredible journey of your life. Soon, you'll hold your little bundle of joy in your arms, and all those unexpected moments will now make sense.

Wishing you a pregnancy filled with love, laughter, and beautiful memories. You're about to embark on the most rewarding adventure of all— motherhood!
