Most women go into pregnancy knowing the TV version: You pee on a stick and squeal with delight -- either before or after you wake up feeling nauseous -- your boobs get big, your belly balloons, your water breaks, your husband freaks out, and you’re off the hospital to have a baby. But a lot of that stuff isn’t exactly realistic. Here’s the lowdown on what every mom should really know about one of life’s biggest adventures.

That's a good list!  I guess I didn't have many expectations about what it would be like to be pregnant and was pretty good at taking it in stride.  I think I spent so much time focused on the getting pregnant part that after that it was just all a surprise =)
