What I Loved about Being Pregnant
Lately, I have been seeing a lot of pregnancy announcement which makes me reminisce about the time I was pregnant with my daughter. There were plenty of things I enjoyed about being pregnant that I miss. There are also some things I don’t miss but that’s for another post. Haha. So here is what I loved about being pregnant.
Letting it All Hang Out
It was so nice not to be so self-conscious about my belly. I was happy to just let it all hang out. Haha. (Thinking about that song Brick House, aren’t you?)
I felt like a queen when I was pregnant. I had a wonderful husband who would go to the store or a fast food place in the middle of the night to help satisfy my pregnancy craving. He always made sure I was comfortable and took good care of me.
He knows how to cook. (He can cook better than me. Haha) So he would make meals for me as well. I do love my hubby. and he sure did spoil me.
Using “I’m Pregnant” as an Excuse.
This was a nice way of getting out of doing things. Now I didn’t abuse this, at least I don’t think I did, Haha, but it was a nice “Get out of Jail Free” card.
Feeling the Kicks
Before I was pregnant, I remember watching videos of mamas and their bellies with their child kicking and moving around. I thought that was the weirdest thing. But it’s a whole different story when you experience it yourself. I really miss those belly kicks. I even had a pregnancy shirt that said “Kicking it 24/7”
Watching My Baby Grow
During my pregnancy, it was so cool to see the ultrasound of my baby at doctor appointments and watch the growth of her. It just amazes me what our bodies can do.
Telling people I’m Pregnant
I love the reactions I would get from others when my husband and I would tell them we were having a baby, especially my family. My mom was so excited to be a grandma.
Sometimes I wish we did the announcement better because it was so casual when we told people. Haha “Hey, so, we are having a baby.” I’m laughing just thinking about it.
So anyways that’s all I can think of at the moment about what I loved about being pregnant. It was an incredible journey and wouldn’t trade it for anything.
So mamas, what did you love about your pregnancy?
