Reasons to be happy you’re pregnant:
Yes, there are times towards the end when you may be thinking ‘get this thing out of me’ or at the beginning when you’re desperate for a sick-free day, but there are also really lovely things about being pregnant:
Pampering yourself and not feeling guilty for it - after all you need to relax for the baby’s sake!
You may have the boobs you always wanted (gutted that mine didn’t really grow!)
You get lots of attention from friends and family
You have a new appreciation of your own mother
Those first fluttering kicks - are they wind or is it your baby?
You can go on nice walks with your partner and spend quality time together while getting some fresh air
Choosing cute baby clothes and decorating a room
Knowing that you will never be bored again
Finding out, as the contractions get more painful, that your repertoire of swear words is far more extensive than you ever realised!
That huge rush of pleasure and relief when, suddenly, all the pain and effort stops.
Looking into your newborn's eyes and falling utterly in love
Waking up and looking over at something you made and thinking ‘I’m a mum’
Relish your bump-time!
