Do You Know the ABCs of Pregnancy?

The moment I found out I was pregnant I was hit with a wave of questions and concerns: Do I tell my boss? Am I going to get morning sickness? And, naturally, what will it be like to be a mother? Next, I was overwhelmed by the complicated words and phrases my doctor started casually dropping into our conversation. I soon learned there's a unique language reserved for pregnancy, labor and child rearing that they just don't teach us growing up.

It's a language that can be picked up quickly and makes perfect sense as soon as you open up pregnancy books and start talking to other parents. How well do you know the pregnancy ABCs? Take my quiz (it's one of many, I promise!) and find out!

Back labor is not limited to the lower back. I had back labor with my first and my contractions went from the base of my neck down to my knees, with no pain whatsoever in the front. Saying it's pain in the lower back is like saying regular contractions are pain around your belly button.
