Things I'll miss about being pregnant

Scarf: c/o Moon Cats

The other day I was thinking about what I'm going to miss about being pregnant...and honestly, I'm going to miss most of it.  True, I'm so large these days that it's difficult to breathe, my shirts are pretty much midriff shirts, and I'm constantly mistaking extreme fatigue for hunger (chocolate chip cookiesssssssss!!!!), but I really, really love being pregnant.

People are nicer to pregnant ladies.  They smile, hold the door open for you, ask nice questions, and are usually happy to help you in any way.  

I don't mind people touching my belly, telling me that I look like I'm about to pop, asking me about baby names, or any of the typical baby type conversations.

I absolutely will not miss giving a urine sample every week at the doctor (the hardest thing to do of all time....and tmi probably), and I'm excited for my face to deflate (all baby weight goes straight to my face...ahh!), but mainly I'm excited to squeeze and love on a little baby soon.

This ^ is what I wore to Charlie's Christmas program and party at school.  I do love a great scarf, and this one from Moon Cats is not only super cute, it goes with everything, and is ridiculously cozy.  Moon Cats is offering you 20% off all their scarves until January 15!  Just use the code ASHLEY20OFF when you're checking out.

I hope you had a great weekend!

I am totally one of those people that would rub on your belly (after you gave me permission of course). I just love the miracle of the fact that a woman's body can create such a special little human. :)

I also had moon face during pregnancy, my head would swell up like a basketball. If I don't get the chance before the Man in Red arrives -- I hope your precious and expanding family have a blessed and wonderful Christmas, Gal Pal! XO.

Truth! :) It was like the bigger I got, the nicer people were to me. I had a lady at Lowe's offer to take my stuff to the car for me (it was only like 2 bags). Although, I'm learning you get a lot of attention when you have a baby as well.

What I won't miss is having people ask me when I was due and then making some comment, face, etc. because yes, my belly was quite big. When this would happen, I would have to remind myself that my belly was the only area that got big, so I can deal with that.

You are so right - people are extra sweet to you when pregnant. I already miss a lot of it, especially feeling my little one move and kick around in my belly!

Katie said...

My roommate put "eating popcorn from a bowl on top of my pregnant belly" on her bucket list, so I hope you get to do/enjoy some of that too! ;)
