Before I was pregnant I had an idea of what kind of pregnant lady I would be and, of course, I was completely wrong I waited, planned and TTC for a while before getting pregnant, so I was so sure I would love it and that any discomfort would be overshadowed by joy,... but that's not so much how I've been feeling lately! In my case, I am surprised about how hard this is for me and how alien my body feels. I did not expect to mind the weight gain at all, but I do, and I did not expect to be so irritable. I thought I would feel closer to my bean by now, but the baby still seems surreal (which may be due to a touch and go first tri). I don't feel bad about these feelings, because I think it is normal to run the gamut, but I am surprised about how different it has been than I expected. I am just entering 2nd tri, so maybe once I consistently feel better I will start experiencing some of that joy I had planned Anyone else feeling different than they expected (good or bad)? Or has it been more or less how you thought it would be?
