If you're anything like me, you probably didn't have the first clue about what to expect in the early stages of pregnancy. Sure, I'd seen examples of wild mood swings and the bad timing of morning sickness played out in movies and on television, but, as I'd soon find out, what you see on the big and small screen doesn't truly prepare you for what will happen in real life. In fact, there are some things your body will do the first weeks of pregnancy that may freak you out that no movie ever preps you for. Plus, if this is your first time as an expectant mom, I'm sure your nerves are already at an all-time high like mine were.
Though everyone from my doctor to my friends and family warned me about the dangers of searching the internet for information about pregnancy, you know I searched those forums in the middle of the night to question every single symptom I experienced (or might possibly experience). Most of the time it ended up being that my stomach pains were the embarrassing result of eating too many bean burritos, but for every logical explanation, there will always be those bizarre hypotheticals in the back of your mind. So to prepare you for the things that will occur during the first few weeks of your pregnancy, check out these interesting tidbits of info.
