You may get hemorrhoids during labor- and still have them 18 months later!
Braxton hicks can start very early. Mine started at 10 weeks, about one a day, working up to between 5-20 minutes apart several times a day in the last few weeks.
Labor will HURT, but you may just love it : ) From the day I had ds I couldn't wait to do it again.

I've been nodding along with all the replies so the only thing I have to add is ... pregnancy, birth and adjusting to life as a mum of a newborn is bloody hard work!! It is exhausting, frustrating, confusing, overwhelming and did I mention exhausting, BUT you will love your DD or DS more than you ever imagined was possible and that love gets stronger as you watch in amazement as they grow up to become amazing little people : )

Pretty sure all those ladies saying 'loose your dignity at the door' actually mean 'Modesty'..
Two different things, but can be mixed up a bit

I did, and I clearly remember feeling it sitting there (sorry tmi lol) and no one said anything...I decided that it must have been a hemorrhoid. Man was I glad when it popped all the way out and I realised that it was a poo after all!

I wish people told me about the uterus pains afterwards when it's going down, hemorroids, the scared feeling of that first poo (I had stitches & even now 7 weeks on, it's hard for me..I'm still scared!) & the possibility of tearing muscles during labour! I tore my behind thigh muscle & on top of stitches, it was super difficult to walk! The feeling of being kicked in the vag by a horse! The bruising was painful!
But it's all worth it! Goodluck!

I wasn't bothered by the possibility of pooing. What I was embarrassed by, and I didn't expect, was the constant farting after I had an epidural. I was lying back casually chatting to the midwife and team of ob's and med students and i was just letting them rip! I had no control! So embarrassing at the time and my dp kept laughing at me
