    Default I wish they told me....

    So guys what do you wish *they* had told you about pregnancy before you got your BFP?? I thought we might get a bit of a list going, might help the girls following in our preggie footsteps



    1) The excess mucus issue - OMG I've had to wear liners for so long now & it's just getting worse!

    How extreamily hormonal you'd be. For example, crying because the butter was put on the wrong shelf in the fridge.

    Same here on the hormones and moodiness. Although some would argue that I'm like that all the time. I don't think I'm as bad this time as I was with the others but still I can change moods in 5 seconds flat.

    Take care

    Constant, constant, constant nausea, throwing up every day for more than six months...

    But the biggest one for me was: my Mum not telling me that she was hospitalised with high blood pressure for six weeks before her first was born....

    And I was hospitalised with pre-eclampsia at 31 weeks.... she didn't tell me until I was in the hospital.... GRRRRRRR...

    Mind you, after Alex was born, my grandmother told me that two of her best friends died from pre-eclampsia - I'm glad she told me that AFTERWARDS!

    Find out how your Mums were with pg, girlies!
