The Perks of Pregnancy

Becoming pregnant truly is a wonderful thing. The idea of growing a little human inside you is pretty crazy. Its true that most times, with pregnancy, you are dealt a pretty crappy deal. Morning sickness, stretch marks, exhaustion, etc. But aside from that, there are often some pretty awesome perks to being pregnant which I'm going to share with you today!



+ YOU GET HUGE BOOBS
Seriously, those things pop quicker than the blink of an eye. Yes they are going to feel incredibly sore in the beginning but hey, now your boobs look great in pretty much any shirt you wear! And people will comment on them all the time. 

+ MOOD SWINGS ARE TOLERATED MORE
Say goodbye to feeling guilty after having a mini (or major) meltdown for no apparent reason. After all it's just hormones..

+ YOUR HAIR LOOKS BETTER
Due to the extra estrogen your body produces while you're pregnant it prolongs your normal growth phase resulting in less shedding and thicker looking hair. Unfortunately you may also see some extra hair growth in some other strange places...but we won't go there.

+ YOU HAVE A LEGIT EXCUSE TO SLEEP THE DAY AWAY
Growing a human is exhausting! No one will question your new sleeping patterns.

+ CRAVINGS RULE ALL
Care to eat that whole jar of pickles? Pregnancy cravings mean eating an entire carton of ice cream is totally justified.

+ NO PERIODS FOR NINE WHOLE MONTHS

+ BEING TREATED LIKE A DELICATE LITTLE FLOWER
Strenuous activity, heavy lifting at work - I think not! All of a sudden you're a princess and everyone actually wants to do things for you.

+ LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THE FACT THAT YOU AND YOUR PARTNER CREATED A LIFE
Feeling your baby move inside your belly everyday is incredible. To me it still feels surreal every time I think about it. And seeing the excitement on your partners face the first time they feel the baby move is just the sweetest thing in the world.

There are probably a ton more perks to being pregnant but i'll just stick with those eight! Let me know of any down in the comments that I forgot to mention!

  2. I'm not looking to get pregnant anytime soon, but this was such a lovely list, Renee. I've spoken to a few mothers before who have told me their favourite part about being pregnant was being treated like royalty, and getting seats wherever they go, haha!

    I'm not too sure whether you're pregnant right now, but I'm assuming you are, so good luck, and congrats! x

  7. I agree, the idea of a little human growing inside you is quite a crazy though - but lovely at the same time! Justifying a load of tasty food and having a gorgeous mane of hair sound like both two VERY good positives of being pregnant! :)
