Pregnancy is a special time, full of magic and surprises for both the expectant mother and those around her. You never know how your new self will react while waiting for a miracle. Some people have a calm and uneventful pregnancy, but the characters of our selection have some stories to share with the internet.

  • When my friend was pregnant, she became paranoid. They say it’s normal for pregnant women, due to hormones. She constantly doubted her husband’s loyalty, and she detected clues of his cheating: she would find a “female” hair, or smell a scent. And recently she arrived at my house with her things, saying that she was splitting up with him and filing for divorce. It turned out that she called him and heard a woman’s voice, which appeared odd and gentle to her. But the poor guy was just at a gas station and waiting in line. © Overheard / VK
  • I used to be very sensitive to cold, and my husband was the opposite. But when I was 7-8 months pregnant (it was winter), I was wearing shorts and a T-shirt, and my husband would wear a warm robe and socks. I always opened the windows, breathed in the fresh air, and walked around with minimal clothing! My husband would ask, “Who are you? And what have you done with my wife?” © LelyaPolKilo / ADME
  • During the early stages of my pregnancy, I craved pickled cucumbers a lot. But not just any ones, only the ones from burgers. I remember at work, my colleague brought a box of burgers — I sat there and picked out the cucumbers. I still remember that vividly. © Katerina Khadasok
  • For some reason, the term “Pregnancy Brain” grates at me because I pride myself on being a grounded intelligent person. But the other day I tried to shave my armpits with my toothbrush. © Imajemnation / Reddit
  • My sister was pregnant and in the hospital for care. She asked me to bring her a specific brand and scent of soap. I couldn’t find it in the nearby stores, so I bought a different one. I arrived at the hospital feeling guilty, apologized, and my sister said, “It’s fine, I just need to wash my underwear.” © Overheard / VK
  • When I was pregnant, I was making broth for soup. I remember thinking that it needed some salt. So I grabbed a bottle of dishwashing liquid and poured it slowly into the pot. My husband, who was watching this, said in bewilderment, “Maybe I’ll eat at my mom’s place for a while?” © Olga Egorova
  • My wife and I went for a walk and halfway through she got scared that we left the baby at the house. It’s still in her stomach. © JeremyMcLellan / Twitter
  • Last week I licked some dish soap off my finger while making cookies because my stupid brain thought it was residual frosting. © faco_fuesday / Reddit
  • My wife was pregnant. One night, I woke up from a hard shove in my side. I asked her what was wrong. She said she was cold because the air from my nose was blowing on her. Air from the nose! I was stunned. © Overheard / Ideer
  • One night, I woke up to a loud banging noise. I followed the sound and found my pregnant wife sitting by the freezer, smashing ice. She said she wanted some cold coffee, but there was no ice in the trays, and it would take too long to wait for the water to freeze, so she had to do it this way. And this was only the 4th month... I was scared to imagine what would happen next. © Chamber #6 / VK
  • My wife was crying because she couldn’t find her socks ... they were on her feet. © fresno84 / Twitter
  • I was pregnant with my first child and working in a company at that time. Someone at work had brought a huge jar of pickled tomatoes and left it in the office. Everyone had gone home, but I stayed to finish some paperwork. The jar of tomatoes tempted me. I found a screwdriver, opened the lid, and ate almost all of them. The next day, I came in and everyone was staring at the jar with the broken lid, and I quietly said, “Sorry, I’ll pay you back.” Everyone laughed, and the owner of the jar said: “Don’t worry, I’ll get you another one and even open it for you.” © Ssasha Alex
  • I used to think that pregnant women had very unusual food preferences: some wanted sweet and salty, others wanted bitter. I thought that this wouldn’t affect me at all and that pregnant women were making this up so that men would treat them differently — with more compassion. But yesterday, I sat there, burning pieces of paper and inhaling the smoke. Today, I found myself wanting to smell the fire again. Now I’m afraid of setting something on fire in the house. 8th month of pregnancy. © Chamber #6 / VK
  • I was pregnant with my first I forgot the word ‘shoes’ and had to ask my stepson to put his ‘foot things’ on the pitying look he gave me!! © ***spanish / Reddit

Indeed, nothing in the world can be known with absolute certainty.
