#1. Your hair becomes amazing.
Really though. I've received so many compliments on my hair looking so thick and shiny. Before I just said, "awe thanks- It must be great genes!" But now that we all know I'm pregnant, we know that's a lie and it's just a combination between my hormones and my prenatal vitamins, Not my great genes. Either way, I feel like I have shiny unicorn hair, and that's great, people.
#2. Your Tater Tots become
Not exaggerating. MASSIVE. I've had to buy three separate bras and I'm about to move on to the 4th. I feel like my taters have got lives of their own now. I've had friends say "HAHA WOOWW" ...YA.. WOW is RIGHT, my friends. Before anyone knew I was pregnant we went to visit Pink Grandma. She gives really good hugs which we call "squeezes" for a reason. I thought I was absolutely going to pass out. I had to take a few extra minutes in the car before driving away to make sure I caught my breath again.
#3. You don't have to suck your belly in anymore
This one is my favorite reason to date. I feel like I've had great abs under that layer of insulation merely because I use those muscles to suck my belly in. Mostly after meals to hide my lunch portions that are equivalent to a small toddler. Now after meals, it just looks like I'm 5 months pregnant. Which I'm cool with.
#4. No Periods for 40 Weeks
Enough said, for real.
#5. It's (sometimes) okay to use Pregnancy as an excuse
I'm all about using Pregnancy as an excuse to get out of doing things I don't want to do. Like when my boss says, "Hey can you help me carry this?" OOohh.. shoot. Sorry, I'm pregnant! Or, "Sheesh this pregnancy is exhausting.. GUESS I better take a nap!" However, it is not okay to say things like "I'm eating for two now" or "Baby wants ____" at any point in your pregnancy. Just because you're pregnant doesn't mean you need to eat portion sizes for two grown adults. Nor does your baby want a hot dog, a hamburger or a pint of ice cream. I'm all about using pregnancy excuses, but not when it comes to food. Yuck.
