  • I wish someone told me how uncomfortable it is to sleep the last 3 weeks!
    3hrs a night just doesnt cut it.
    Tired all the time.
    That was rough.

  • Hi Nataly,

    Girl I wish that someone had told me that my stomach would have stretchmarks if I didn't use cocoa butter daily. When we had our first son, I didn't have a clue. I needed guidance badly. But hey, we live, learn, and become wiser.

  • I kind of wish someone had told me about how my boobs would become tiny and kind of shrivelly and small after pregnancy, but then -- I probably would have hated them for it. :-)

  • That it hurts! I was in SO much pain during the last trimester, my back hurt, my hips, I had cramps all the time . . . I never expected that.

  • I wish someone would have told me that a bunch of your hair falls out a few months after you have the baby! That totally freaked me out.
