Ladies, lets have a positive post to share some of the good things about being pregnant at different stages (we know there are lots of niggles, pains and grim things to contend with).
I'm 13+2 and just hitting a better (but, not perfect) phase.
My best things so far are:
- keeping a very exciting secret (until next week!) - glossy hair - hubby doing more stuff around the house - buying maternity clothes and getting eBay bargains - the excuse to plan house-projects - a new focus for exercise - excitement about starting a family with DH and being 'we three'
...and seeing our baby waving (with finger bones!) at the scan this week!
Oh and... -No periods -Putting weight on (was previously on the skinny side, which was fine by me because its normal for me, but constantly being told "your too skinny" used to bug the hell out of me!!) -being given chairs even when it meant people had to stand up -people saying "no no you sit down i'll take control of everything!!"- this was GREAT when I moved house at 30 weeks
Going to pregnancy yoga and chatting with fellow preggos Getting to be selfish and saying no more Bump taking attention away from massive thighs and bum!? Rubbing my tummy No hangovers!!! Maternity leave!
