For most things, I can sate my curiosity by opening a book or doing a google search. And I've learned a lot about a baby's growth in the womb, and expectations for how my body may handle it, and why weird things are happening to me. I've learned about how much weight I'll gain, and why I pee all the time, and what other women's experiences have been.

But nothing can sate my curiosity for how painful labor will be for me, or what it will feel like when I get to hold my daughter in my arms and lay my eyes on her for the first time. I just have to wait to find out how tired I'll be in the third trimester, and how far out my belly can grow, and when her birthday will be. And I'm so darn curious.
