when the dr. tells you to try and go to the bathroom at least every two hours she isn't just saying it for fun? yup, that's right, there is actually wisdom in those words. because emptying out a very full bladder all at once and feeling your uterus fit back down to fill the now empty space can be surprisingly painful. how's that for a "what they don't tell you about pregnancy"?
when the baby kicks you feel it everywhere, like literary every side of your inner body. now you may be thinking "well duh", but it had just never occurred to me before. and as a result the following conversation has actually taken place in our house:
"do you know what it feels like to be kicked in the butt...from the inside?"
"well i do, it's weird"
so there you have it. two little pearls of wisdom, from my brain to yours.
