The Fear Of The Unknown Can Be Unbearable
From Redditor u/DIGGYRULES:
The fear. There is no way to prepare for the pain. You KNOW it's going to hurt, but nobody can describe it. Just the fear of the unknown... especially in the last few weeks and days.

You'll Probably Go Through A Lot Of Bras
From Redditor u/WhatMichelleDoes:
I am pregnant right now, only 19 weeks, and I went to 7 bra stores yesterday, even a maternity store, and could not find a bra in my size.

Sometimes The Baby Will Kick Your Bladder And You Will Urinate
From Redditor u/truevwlove:
Sometimes the baby WILL kick your bladder and you WILL pee yourself, no warning at all... Also in the last trimester sometimes the baby will seem to flip around and throw you off balance. My last month I had zero balance and randomly peed my pants... awesome.

You Are Going To Bleed
From Redditor u/gooberville:
The bleeding after having your baby. I had a c-section, the first time I went to pee the pan looked horrible. I pulled the emergency cord, thinking oh my god my insides are falling out. The nurse who came to see me gave me the best WTF look ever and just said " you just had a baby, that's totally normal".
