I feel like these days it’s pretty hard NOT to know the scoop on what awaits you during pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond. After all, the tabloids are chronicling expectant moms’ Kate Middleton’s and Kim Kardashian’s every move. (And pound. Poor girls.) Reality shows abound — “Teen Mom,” “A Baby Story,” and my personal favorite, “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant.” (OK, I’m lying. I’ve never seen this show. But I find the premise absurd.) And blogs — like this one — chronicle every step of pregnancy and parenting in real time.
Was there anything you wish YOU knew before you had kids?
