Best things about pregnancy??

Often times we focus on the awful things about pregnancy (and clearly there are some), but let's post the best things, even if they're small and silly.

Mine: Certain food tastes so much better than it used to.  Sometimes I can't believe how good something can taste.

  • I allow myself to eat a few treats here and there that I would never let myself when I'm not pregnant, such as an A&W Freeze dessert. Big Smile  I don't go crazy, but for me, it's a little extra bonus for putting up with being exhausted, a little sick, and for my body changing.   When I want fro yo for lunch, I have fro yo for lunch!

    Lol before dh went back to work he was asking what point in pregnancy was I "in the mood" more often. I told it was second tri, he then started telling me daily how much longer it was until second tri.

    One of the best part of pregnancy for me is how thick and shiny my hair gets.

  • For me the best thing has been seeing the baby moving and wiggling around. Ive never seen something so amazing, so lovable.
  • Though I am beyond ready to start feeling like myself again and not an extra throw pillow on the couch all day long, I do love that I have a wonderful excuse to take a nap everyday right now :D

    I hear ya! Although I could only wish to be able to nap every day! My 4 year old won't let it happen! I usually work 5am-1pm at a pretty fast paced job. When I get home I still have a little adrenaline rush going but by dinner time, I'm spent. But for the first time today, someone told me to "take it easy" when I was putting some kinda heavy boxes on an awkward shelf. I have NEVER heard that phrase before and it's kind of refreshing to know a somewhat stranger cares about your well-being! All time favorite part of pregnancy though has to be feeling baby move. I can't wait for that feeling again!

  • I completely agree about some foods tasting 1000x better than normal.  It's freakin' awesome (and I recommend the bread sticks at Olive Garden as well as the burrito bowls at Chipotle...drool)

     Anyway, I also love that DH has been waiting on me hand and foot.  It's not something he normally does, not because he isn't a darling, but because I'm Italian and I was raised to take care of my husband.  I know it sounds sexist, and it is, but it's a cultural thing, too.

    So far this has been the only good thing I have discovered. Other then losing 5 pounds inadvertently. DH is enjoying my slightly bigger ta tas.

  • I have nothing good to say about this pregnancy yet and very little good to say about last time; but I will say that the early kicks are amazing. That's about it. Pregnancy doesn't give me many perks, unfortunately.

    ETA: Okay, someone else just reminded me that it's pretty cool to have bigger knockers for about two years while I'm pregnant/BFing. As a lifelong member of the itty bitty titty committee, it's a perk. lol.

  • Having an amazing 1st tri screening today and seeing my 2 little babies wiggling around in there!  So happy!

    Oh and the fact that I hired a cleaning lady is great too!

    THIS!!!!! And I hate coffee and junk food right now. I am eating so much healthier due to my cravings and aversions!

     Same here for both!! I have two cats lol. And I'm craving fruits and veggies and salads and feel like I cant get enough water sometimes. 

    Maybe there's a correlation between having cats and healthy food cravings during pregnancy (unlikely...but still lol.)

  • I don't know if this would be the best thing, but I am definitely glad that being pregnant finally motivated me to quit my bad habit of drinking diet soda. I am sure this is much better for my health because of all the bad things I have read about aspartame.

    I have a sneaking suspicion I might give in to my addiction after I give birth and am done breastfeeding, though. I kind of hope it doesn't taste good anymore.
  • My hair and nails are in the best shape of my life. Also, I love being able to indulge in a treat or comfort food when I want, without worrying too much about gaining unwanted weight.

  • My first thought is there is nothing good about it. My last two were hell and this time just reminds me of the other two times. My first time the only bad I remember is labor...lol

    But if I had to think about it I'd say. Better sex, excuse to lay around lol...feeling baby move. And no freakin period!!!
  • Not having to suck in my gut! And DH's attentiveness... Sometimes I just need to lay down for a little while.

    Oh... And the fact that I ate half a package of cookies at work today!

    This! My DH is always pretty sweet but he has been extra sweet and understanding. He encourages me to eat and sleep as much as I need. He encourages me to do as little as possible. I love it!

    Yes! Though I blame BFing for my issues. Pregnancy has countered that and sex has finally gotten good again.

    This! I haven't had a period since Feb 2011 [pregnant with DS in March 2011 breastfed up until this BFP].
    I don't enjoy much of anything so far but second trimester was great with DS! I loved feeling him move and actually looking pregnant and getting congrats from strangers.
