10 Crazy, Unexpected Feelings That Come With Pregnancy

December 18, 2015 3 min read

Pregnancy is a wonderful, beautiful, exciting time. So many changes, so many things to look forward to! The whole idea of being able to grow a human life inside your body is just remarkable. There is no other word for it. Having said that, pregnancy isn't always perfect bliss. Anyone who has been there can tell you that there are strange and uncomfortable experiences that also come with being pregnant. Here are 10 unexpected feelings you may experience during pregnancy:

1. You'll feel hungover constantly.

You know that feeling you get after a weekend bender? That's exactly how it feels. You wake up knowing your going to feel lousy for most of the day.

2. You'll feel stuffed.

You will feel like you just worked your way through an all-you-can-eat buffet, twice. But in reality, you had a sandwich. You will feel like your food is sitting somewhere near your chest, halfway between your throat and your stomach.

3. You'll need a spit cup.

You know that gaggy, watery saliva you have in your mouth right before you throw up? Well, imagine having it all day. Even when you are driving in your car with no place to spit. Holding it in only makes you gag more, and an old coffee cup may just be your best friend.

4. Smells.

You will start to smell things you never even noticed before. Things you never knew even existed. Like the air freshener in your neighbour's house. The worst part, no one else can smell these things and they often look at you like you're insane when you mention them. Try not to let the smells drive you crazy!

5. Cravings.

You really, really want a milkshake! It's literally the only thing you can think about for hours on end. Then when you finally get the chance to suck one back, it tastes horribly gross. Your husband orders your favourite pizza because you cannot live without it, but by the time it arrives, you aren't interested.

6. Always hungry.

Often times, you'll feel famished and you'll have no idea what to eat. You'll crave things you don't want, and just about everything makes you gag. You never know what you want to eat until the second you put it in your mouth.

7. Exhaustion.

You want nothing more than to close your eyes ... at 1 p.m. in the afternoon. You could do it mid-sentence if you aren't careful!

8. Everyone's a critic.

You will have everyone, from friends and family to complete strangers, pointing out everything you are doing wrong. "I have a friend whose boyfriend's, cousin's, sister died from doing that." Yes, please, do go on....

9. No pictures.

You'll never want to take pictures EVER again. Every picture of you is dreadful to look at. You'll immediately start to run and hide when you see a cellphone or camera make an appearance.

10. Google will terrify you.

You will no doubt stumble upon an alarmist blog that will tell you all of the ways you are destroying your child's life before s/he is even born. If you want to know something, stay offline and ask your doctor. Despite these crazy feelings, pregnancy is still a beautiful thing. Do any of these feelings sound familiar to you?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
