I remember the time that I discovered I was pregnant. The joy that overcame my heart and the warmth I felt was unexplainable. I even began to imagine myself pregnant and one too many times I found myself touching my flat tummy. I would stand by a mirror and caress my flat tummy trying to imagine how I would look with a baby bump.

What I didn’t know was that the journey ahead of me was the longest and toughest yet, but rewarding. The best thing about pregnancy, in my experience, is knowing that at the end of those 9 months, I would be holding my precious little princess or prince with overwhelming joy to the point that I may even cry. But before I got to that point, there was so much that I went through that I wish I knew I would. No one prepared me for that but that will not be the same case for you because I will tell you.
So here are 4 things I didn’t know about pregnancy and I wish I knew

First Trimester Can Seem Like The Longest 

My first trimester which is usually 3 months felt like 6 months for me. It was as if weeks were turning into months. I had the worst pregnancy symptoms. My nausea could not be cured with anti-nausea meds, my appetite was wanting, I hated fried food and would vomit from just a sniff of it and I just couldn’t get out of bed. I wasn’t lazy or on bed rest, no. I just couldn’t stop sleeping. I don’t know if I am the only one who has ever experienced this but I was so sleepy for the first three months. I would find myself sleeping all through the night till the next day at noon. And that was if someone woke me up. If I would have been alone in my house, I would have probably slept for two days straight and not even feel hungry because I had no appetite.
