I personally have a top ten list myself. These are the things that have made pregnancy itself tolerable.
#10 - Shopping for everything. I love buying new things for the baby. And decorating a nursery. Star Wars theme for my little Padawan, Luke.
#9 - The "pregnancy brain" excuse. "Did I sign up for that? Yeah, I totally spaced. I'm so sorry." And I get away with it with a smile and a comment back, "You have a lot on your mind, sweetie." When truthfully, I 70% forgot about it and 30% of me didn't want to do whatever I signed up for...
#8 - My hair grows so fast! My hair takes centuries to grow out but with prenatal vitamins and pregnancy, it looks so nice!
#7 - The built-in dinner tray. Movie nights with my husband at night are always accompanied by popcorn. And the popcorn bowl is right on my tummy. A perfect placement. I don't have to reach uncomfortably anywhere because it's literally right in my face.
#6 - Leaving a restaurant with an actual pregnant belly and not just a "food baby." This has made my eating habits slightly heavier but hey, momma has cravings, sacrificed her body already and knows how to get the weight off when the pregnancy is over. I will eat my food without worrying about calories and carbs!
#5 - When your baby moves slightly away from your ribs for once so breathing is easier. It's the little things.
#4 - (TMI) That morning dump. Feels so good. Not going to lie. It feels damn good.
#3 - Going to the pool. Feeling weightless is pretty much the best. Not a fan of getting out of the pool where I can feel that weightlessness leave instantly. But floating in water is very nice indeed. Not to mention, my boobs look great in a swimsuit. The rest of my body has much to be desired but let's focus on the positives!
#2 - Nesting. Not only is my house super clean but it's also more organized than it has ever been before. All thanks to nesting.
#1 - Fetal Movements. The kicks that just let you know that there is an end to the thing that is ruining your body.
Has anyone else made a list of the positives? Trust me, for every positive I have two negatives but this list helps me realize that I won't be pregnant forever and I can have a little bit of enjoyment while I still am. I want to hear your lists if you got them! Too much negative on here lately.
