Pregnancy Problems: Problems Only Expectant Moms Understand


Pregnancy comes with its own set of struggles. From cravings to back aches, it isn’t always a pretty picture. So while growing a baby is a wonderful thing, there are certain problems only expectant moms understand. Just take a look at the examples below.

1) You have to pee every two seconds

14) You feel fat no matter what stage you're at

15) You'll lose your feet sooner or later

16) And won't be able to reach them

17) And sometimes the baby just won't want to come out

18) So nine months feels like FOREVER

Pretty much. #pregnancyproblems #9monthspregnant #38daysleft 😩
