The Best (And Worst) Bits Of Being Pregnant

Being pregnant is one of the greatest gifts of all, but not everything is hearts and roses... Here are some of the best, and some of the worst moments of pregnancy.
The Worst Bits

Sickness
Prepare yourself for the horrible feeling of nausea you will have. Some women are lucky enough not to experience it, but around 80% of women will. Although it's awful, just know that it should be over after the first trimester.

Aches and pains
It's very common to suffer from hip and back pain during pregnancy. This is completely normal, your hips are preparing themselves for when you go into labor, and your back will be aching because you're carrying around extra weight. Your feet will also be affected because of this.

Mood swings
Good luck to your partner, friends, and family. Your mood swings will make you become prone to turning into a mad woman without any explanation, and then you'll go back to being your lovely self again. This is due to your hormones trying to level out, so don't get upset about it, your loved ones will understand!

Effort
Later on into the pregnancy, even the little things will take it out of you. Walking up and down the stairs, putting your shoes on and brushing your hair all sound simple right now, but when you're 8 or 9 months pregnant - it's a nightmare!


The Best Bits

It’s magic!
One of the coolest things about being pregnant is the magic of it! You have a mini human being growing inside of you, and in 9 months time, he or she will call you Mommy for the rest of their life.

No more periods
You will no longer have to worry about making sure you have your discreet bag with you, or if you're late - you're pregnant now!

Bigger boobs
Let's not forget the new boobs you'll gain from being pregnant ladies... It happens within the blink of an eye. One day you'll wake up, and they'll be smiling back at you.

Always have a seat
Public transport, the cinema or live shows will no longer be an issue for you, just show that belly off, and you'll get front row seats anywhere!

No heavy lifting
You get to play the victim card without questions asked! You don't have to worry about carrying the shopping bags in or doing the washing anymore. Plus, you will get a cup of tea made for you whenever you like!

Endless naps
No one can call you out on being antisocial or rude anymore. Growing a child can be exhausting, so if you feel like taking a nap - no one will dare stop you!

Life
But nothing can beat the moment when you see your baby for the first time. It will change your life forever... You will never forget when you hold your baby, and he or she looks back at you, and all you can think is "I made that..."
