From the moment you find out you are pregnant, you will be taken on an emotional and sometimes terrifying journey.


As your hormones increase and your body changes, you will go though a few not-so-pleasant things... and some pretty weird AF things. 


1. Hair loss 

We're talking a lot of hair loss here, people. A lot. 



2. Lactating at the sound of someone else's baby crying 

Usually out of nowhere when you are wearing a grey T-shirt. 


3. Baby brain

Our reason for leaving the car keys in the fridge and for forgetting to turn the oven on. 


4. A heightened sense of smell 

'Cause we all need to be more in-tune with the smell of a bus commute, right?!



5. Feet changes 

As in they grow one size bigger and you can no longer fit into ANY of your shoes. Any. 


6. Vivid (and frightening) dreams

Sometimes about waking up to hundreds of cats crawling all over you...


7. Sweating in places you didn't know you could sweat in

Like your bum cheeks. 



8. You'll develop a constant stuffy nose 

You can blame your increased hormones and blood production on this one; prepare for a nine-month long cold.
