Ten Things to Love About Pregnancy
the grand scheme of things, pregnancy is a brief but amazing time.
While pregnancy is certainly a time of growth and change, it is also a
time in which there is much to celebrate and enjoy.
Here we provide ten great things to love about pregnancy and the experience of being pregnant:
Discovering that you are pregnant is fun and special for many people.
One of the most beautiful things about the time before your news is
widely shared is the sense that you have an amazing secret that will
soon enough be revealed. On this point, another thing to love is the
opportunity to come up with some surprising and creative ways to share
#2: If you are interested in fashion, pregnancy can give you a new and exciting interest in maternity wear.
Many women are delighted to discover that their personal style can be
maintained and even enhanced throughout their pregnancy. Far from
needing to dress unattractively and in shapeless, bland garments,
contemporary maternity wear is on-trend, stylish and flattering to the
Taking time to look after yourself through relaxation, exercise and
other activities is something that is really enjoyed by many women.
Pregnant women testify to the benefits of pursuits such as yoga,
pilates, swimming and aqua aerobics (and the range of gorgeous maternity swimwear that is now available creates even more reason to take on these activities).
Putting your feet up and wearing comfortable shoes are seemingly
simple things but ones that are heartily enjoyed and recommended by many
Taking the opportunity to rest is something that is not always
available to all pregnant women (particularly if they already have one
or more other children), but snatching some extra naps and hours of
sleep is certainly something to love if you can get it while pregnant!
One of the most amazing experiences of pregnancy is hearing your
baby’s heartbeat for the first time. As this is likely to occur at about
the twelve week mark, and before you feel any movement, this is an
experience that tends to make the pregnancy believably real. Hearing
your baby’s fast paced heartbeat is the most concrete sign of the life
inside you that is possible at this stage of pregnancy and one that
often makes a woman feel more connected to the baby she is carrying.
Charting the course of your pregnancy can be a fun activity and one
that you will almost certainly look back on with great interest. While
some women keep a pregnancy diary and record milestones such as first
movements, cravings and details from antenatal appointments, capturing
evidence of your changing body through photographs is a great way to
celebrate your pregnancy. Some women suggest taking a photograph every
month in which you wear the same outfit; this really enables you to see
how your body changes over the months.
Just as hearing your baby’s heartbeat is amazing, feeling your baby
move is definitely something to love about pregnancy! Experiencing the
kicks, rolls and turns can be a surreal but definitely a precious and
Pregnant women do have a tendency to glow. Not only is your hair
likely to be more lustrous, thick and shiny than ever before, many women
find that their skin is also lovely during pregnancy. Enjoy these
changes to your body and accept the compliments when people tell you how
great and healthy you look.
If people treat you well and in a more accommodating way than they
otherwise might, enjoy it and accept it – you deserve it! Fortunately
there are people in society who will go out of their way to assist a
pregnant woman. This is something to love about being pregnant so accept
their generosity and kindness.
is an amazing time in a woman’s life and a time of preparation and
anticipation. Enjoy the forty weeks as much as possible and focus on the
many wonderful things to love about being pregnant – this list only
scratches the surface!
