5 Reasons Why You Should Get Pregnant

#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 huge massive
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.


  1. This is all so exciting, especially the thick shiny unicorn hair. I will be looking forward to that!

  2. Excellent valid reasons. I better that on that. ;)

  3. If you breastfeed you won't have a period for 18 months! At least that's how it was for me. And your boobs get even bigger ;)

  4. hahaha I LOVE this! Especially #2! HOLLA!!!!!

  5. love this! I also super agree with your last point. It is healthy to eat well during your pregnancy but you arent doing anyone any favors by completely overeating. There is a difference between a food belly and a baby belly :)

  6. LOL @ this post! But they are all true from what I've heard from all my friends. I already have large tater tots so im not looking forward to them getting bigger...
