Happiness is......

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!
