Is there anything you've experienced during pregnancy so far that has surprised you?

I was surprised by the amount of pain that comes with the ligaments stretching. My OBGYN that I had before I switched to the midwife usually only said "baby is fine, you're fine, bye" Nothing about what to expect until I see her the next time. So I had no warning to expect that kind of pain and the various pregnancy books I was reading didn't cover the topic until 3 weeks past where I was and I don't read ahead beyond the next week. I like my midwife. two appointments ago she said I might start feeling more ligament pain as the baby gets really big and she was right. The little girl hit a growth spurt and Yowcha!

Oh, I'm having those pains too now, not fun.

I haven't been so shocked by any one thing, but the overall way it all feels is sort of indescribable.

The really surprising thing to me is that I haven't cried at my ultrasounds. I tear up a little, but I'm a big crier when I'm not hormonal, so I thought I'd be a sobbing mess.
