If you follow me on Twitter, there’s no doubt you know I’m pregnant and it hasn’t been going all that great. Major vomiting sessions, constant nausea, wicked heartburn and extreme fatigue… but I’ve chosen to try to find the positives in all this… so here goes.
My nails – they have grown freakishly long, I am thinking of competing with the Guinness Book of World Record holder.
My hair – much like my nails, it’s growing and it’s thicker than usual.
Moving – If you ever have to move, I highly suggest doing it while pregnant…. there’s no expectation for you to do anything. If we ever move again, I think I’ll stuff a pillow under my shirt. I would at least be able to fool the packers. I’m sure they’d be appalled to see me moving things around, even if it doesn’t bother my family.
Sleep – while I’ve always enjoyed a lot of sleep, it’s now acceptable to get 15 hours of shut eye a day.
Kindness – People let me skip the bathroom line, and I get to sit in the front seat of the car.
And well, that’s all I have so far… I guess the end result will be the best part of pregnancy.
While some women look absolutely stunning and “feel the best they have ever felt in their life” I am not one of those women. In fact, before we even knew what we were having husbter was convinced we’re having a girl again because he believed the baby was sucking the life right out of me – and he was right!
What were your pregnancy positives?
