When Nancy O'Dell was pregnant with her baby girl, Ashby, she found herself saying often, "Why didn't ya'll friggin tell me that was gonna happen!" Nancy took notes during her pregnancy (the reporter in her never rests), so she would have memories of all the crazy, unexpected, scary, sometimes embarrassing things that happen during pregnancy. Now, she's passing them on to expectant parents in hopes they won't have to be surprised or panicked, and can be more prepared!
