Jenna Surrat: There haven’t been a ton of surprises I guess. I’m pretty amazed that the human body and just how much like my stomach can grow and expand and everything that I go through but—I don’t know—Like I’ve said, I’ve read a lot of books and kind of impreparation, they tell you what to expect and—So there hasn’t been any big surprises I guess. I’m sure there will be in labor. Jason: One-- I think is just the design and how everything the body, the human body and just how it works and it’s just incredible on its own—and its almost by design how things just seem to happen naturally and normally in another’s—kiss is where this complications, but for us, that hasn’t happen and—Just how even now that she’s waking up in the last month, probably several times in the night cause she has to use the restroom because there’s—her bladder and her—is getting weighed on more. But I feel like that’s even preparing us for parenthood and preparing us for because that’s reality when you know—especially in the first several weeks, we’re going to be up several times a night. So things like that have really surprised me. Jenna Surrat: People ask a lot, you know, just about sleep especially right now and—it is a lot harder towards the end. They say that you aren’t supposed to lean your back in your sleep like way – your back or sleep into your back because it cuts off circulation to—like my organs and the baby, I think it’s just because she’s weighing so heavily on me but that’s just not good. They’ve really recommend sleeping on your left side, for some reason, the left side gets more nutrients to the baby and supposed to be best for all. Other than that, I just absolutely love being pregnant, it’s been and amazing experience for me and I know that everybody has such a great experience. But for me, It’s so wonderful to know that even when I’m sleeping at night, I’m so still doing something, like a little life is being created inside of me and I just love it, it’s incredible.
