6 Perks to Being Pregnant

There are so many reasons to enjoy your pregnancy, whether it’s your first or your last. Here are just 6 perks to being pregnant.

1. You have a great excuse to eat a pint of ice cream by yourself

Now that you’re “eating for two” you can get away with a lot. Is it a great idea to eat an entire pint of ice cream by yourself? Probably not. Will anybody say anything if you do? Probably not.

2. You get sympathy from complete strangers

People let you skip in grocery lines, doors get opened and kind smiles are everywhere. The world knows pregnancy can be tough and many people try and help out.

3. Stretchy pants are acceptable no matter the season

Stretchy pants/leggings are staples in maternity wear and luckily when you’re expecting they can be worn year ‘round. Who doesn’t want to wear stretchy pants all the time?!

4. Your hair and skin look AMAZING

With all of those prenatal vitamins, supplements and pumping hormones your hair is likely shinier, thicker and longer than ever. And the glow isn’t a myth, great skin usually compliments your luscious mane.

5. You get to shop for teeny tiny baby clothes and shoes

Ah, size “newborn”. The cutest clothing you’ll ever see. And guess what? It’s EVERYWHERE. Tiny outfits and crib shoes never get old.

6. People throw you showers

When you have a bun in the oven friends and family just love to celebrate your sweet baby bump. Days filled with treats, gifts and cake really help to make up for the backache and swollen ankles. If this is your first baby, then you’re really in luck.
