proflower said: What was so awesome about being pregnant, if you don't mind me asking? I only know a handful of women who have been pregnant and they all hated it and constantly complained, and I know it has it's downsides and I understand why it would suck but I've never heard one positive thing said about it apart from "I got a baby at the end" :)
Haha this is a little hard to answer because I totally understand why everyone else says it sucks! But looking back at my pregnancy, I was happier then I have ever been in life. I felt like I had such an awesome purpose (which didn’t go away when I had him, it was just basically at x10 when he was inside me).
Walking around everyday, I was never alone. My son was with me 100% of the time when I was pregnant. And feeling those little reassuring kicks? It’s such a magical feeling. Sure, I complained like hell, but who doesn’t? When I hit 30 weeks, my body slowed down drastically, I was in more pain, and getting more and more tired, but I just continued to realize a little person was growing inside of me. My son. And whenever the pain got awful, or I got overly emotional, he would kick me, and I always just had this rush of emotion come over me and everything was perfect in those moments and it’s such a hard feeling to describe because of how incredible it was.
And the fact that my fiancé would get me any food I wanted 24/7, or give me a massage any time I asked. That was also a plus hahaha.
And also, I looked hella cute while pregnant. 😊
The kicks, definitely the kicks.
The adorable baby bump.
Having the baby all to yourself.
The excitement of knowing you’re creating life.
things you don’t point out about people:
- body hair in places you’re not used to it being???
- fat rolls/curves
- how much/how little they’re eating
- how skinny they are/what bones they can see because of how skinny they are
- How fat they are.
- If they have crooked or misaligned teeth maybe even yellowed
- If they sweat a lot
don’t do it
