Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful periods in a woman’s life. And the sweetest part for every expecting mother is the first time she holds her little angel in her arms – that magnificent child she will cherish for the rest of her life. But this is not the only fantastic thing about pregnancy. There are many more things that make pregnancy truly awesome.
- Enjoying The Attention Of The Grandparents
You will get to bask in the excitement of your parents as they look forward to becoming grandparents. Expect to be treated like a delicate flower, as your parents rush around looking after you for nine months.
- You Won’t Have To Do Any Heavy Lifting
Well, technically you could still do a bit, but most people don’t know that, so you’re free to sit back and project manage any house moves you have planned.
- You Will Always Get A Seat
Whether you’re on the train, bus, or visiting friends, you will always be offered a seat from hereon out. As soon as your bump is big enough to be a definite pregnancy bump (and not a food baby), you will have people tripping over each other to offer you their seat.
- You Can Win Every Argument, Because, You Know, You’re Pregnant
Nobody wants to argue with the pregnant woman or make her cry. Irrationality is almost expected from pregnant women, so use this to your advantage.
- Massages Have Become A Way Of Life
During pregnancy, it is suddenly acceptable to spend large amounts of money on regular massages. You’re also totally within your rights to demand daily massages upon your return home from work.
- You Have A-List Hair As Soon As You Drag Yourself Out Of Bed
Long gone are the days of intensive conditioners, spray in protectors, teasing, blasting, straightening, and setting. These days, your long, luscious hair looks picture perfect from the moment you look in the mirror.
- Your Boobs Are Bigger
All of a sudden, you have the attention-grabbing cleavage you always wanted… much to your partner’s delight too.
- You Will Have The Strangest And Most Detailed Dreams Of Your Life
For some pregnant women, keep a pad and pen by your bedside, and be sure to note down your weird and wonderful dreams when you wake up.
- Feeling Your Baby Kick For The First Time
Feeling your baby kick for the first time is nothing short of amazing, and it will really make the pregnancy feel so much more real. Many new mothers miss feeling their babies kick after they are born, so enjoy each one!
- You Will Be Taken Care Of Like Never Before
All of a sudden, the most important thing to your friends and family will be how you are feeling. Everyone will be bringing you fresh fruit, cooking you healthy lunches and joining you on long walks at the weekends.
