Perks to being Pregnant

It seems like most (not all, but most) women complain about numerous things while pregnant ranging from the aches and pains to the numerous bathroom breaks. I have definitely done my fair share of complaining, but I thought I would share a few of the perks that I have experienced being prego:

- I tan a lot faster (pregnant women have more melanin in their skin than
- My hair and nails are super strong and grow way faster
- For whatever reason, while the hair on my head grows faster, the hair on my
legs grows way slower, which equals a lot less shaving
- The “girls” have grown a cup size
- I have a legitimate excuse to consume more calories
- I get out of having to do manual labor like yard work
- I get more back rubs than normal
- I have a legitimate excuse to buy new clothes
- People at work are always letting me know when there is yummy food around
- I get front row parking at certain places (even at work :) for expectant mothers
- I get to take a long “vacation” from work

Although I would not consider myself one of those ladies that just loves being pregnant, I try to remind myself of these positives when I find myself wanting this baby out!
