At almost 27 weeks pregnant, today’s Confessions are all Pregnancy Confessions… it was bound to happen sometime. These might not be pretty, so be forewarned!
Your thighs will spread out at the top, right under your lady parts, and it is not attractive. Or comfortable. And if you have never chafed while walking, you will find out what it’s like.
Pregnant boobs are NOT hot, no matter what anyone thinks. They are big, veiny, and wide.
Say goodbye to the belly button you once knew… because after pregnancy, it will NEVER look the same again.
Oh and say goodbye to the lady parts you once knew… because after delivery they will NEVER look the same again.
Sometimes you pee your pants a little when you sneeze, cough, stand, laugh, breathe. No one will ever know though, so don’t worry.
If you ever thought that passing gas was something controllable, you’ve never been pregnant.
Your feet might grow a size larger, your eyesight might weaken, and there is a very good chance your gums will bleed every time you brush your teeth.
Varicose veins – they don’t just show up on your legs.
Grooming your lady parts during the third trimester is not easy. You might need to bring a mirror into the shower with you because your large baby bump will undoubtedly obstruct your view. Once you get the mirror out – if this is your first time looking – be afraid. Be very very afraid. There are some things that you can’t un-see.
Anyone who has experienced the beautiful gift of pregnancy – What kind of confessions can you contribute?
I loved that I was pregnant and knew I was very lucky especially due to be an older first time mom. But I was unprepared for how much I HATED pregnancy! I threw up continually during my first trimester–low points included throwing up into a plastic bag in my car while driving to work. And then began throwing up again during my third trimester as my daughter was riding so high. I also peed myself at work in front of a client. By the end I thought my calling in life might be becoming an abstinence counselor to at risk teens. But then my daughter was here and it felt totally worth it. Although my feet are bigger and my hips wider, still worth it. Liz @ familyoffoley.wordpress.com
Hahaha! Yes to all of these. Adding onto the boob thing why is it one gets so much larger than the other. I’ve got. Lopsided belly and lopsided boobies. Also, little tiny hairs popping up everywhere!!!
Lopsided pregnant boobs…. Story of my life!!
OMG yes to this! I think the feet growing might actually be the strangest thing. And they don’t go back to your normal size, either. I think mine have grown again with this pregnancy – meaning I’m wearing a size 10 now, yikes.
One confession I have is that toward the end of my last pregnancy I HATED looking at pictures of myself. Your body is doing this amazing thing but you don’t look at all like what you used to and it can be really hard!
You also might grow a billy goat beard. That your husband won’t tell you about and you later notice in those first precious pictures of you holding your bundle of joy. Or so I have heard.

HAHAHA!!! YES! The last one is me right now…. I’m trying to be considerate of my OB… but seriously, it’s the most impossible task. I also gave up on getting my underwear on in a normal way. I’m basically lassoing it around my foot and then hopping around trying to get the other foot in, without bending. Impossible at 38 weeks!!!
Ughhhh the grooming thing is so true! I’m only 21 weeks and every time I go about the task it get a bit tougher. Pretty soon its gonna be like stevie wonder with a razor…and that ain’t gonna be pretty!
Ha ha, this is all so true and hilarious!! My gums ALWAYS bled when I was pregnant, I hated it!
Sooo funny! And kind of makes me reconsider having #2… haha! (Why is it so easy to forget everything after you’ve had the baby?!)
Lol. Everything’s good to know! I still can’t wait to be pregnant though. lol. Your post is so honest and hilarious. Love it!
Oh my goodness. I am almost 12 week pregnant (first pregnancy!) and this post nearly made me cry… I managed to make myself laugh instead though, because I know I will not be the first and only one to experience this [duh]. But this is scary stuff! I will be upset if my doctor/midwife/etc don’t warn me of these things; however, I’m grateful you have! Thank you for sharing! I won’t get some of these images or worries out of my head today!
