From Bump To Baby – Five Things I LOVE About Being Pregnant!

5 Things I love about being pregnant

Aside from the hardships of the first trimester, I have absolutely LOVED every part of being pregnant. Everything is so exciting and fun. I have gained so many memories from this experience that will be with me for a lifetime. However, this post is about the constant everyday things that I absolutely love about being pregnant.

1 eating

I absolutely love food. Now that I am in my second trimester, eating is one of my very most favorite things about being pregnant. Although I do not “eat for two”, I love having NO guilt about eating something that I am craving!

2 feeling her move

Many mothers will tell you that it’s impossible to describe the feeling you get when your baby moves inside of you. I am here to tell you the same thing — It’s a feeling that I look forward to each and every day. As she gets stronger, sometimes her moving around is not always comfortable. However, I love that there is a tiny human life growing and developing inside of me. It always makes the uncomfortable bladder KICKS completely worth it!

3 growing

Although I am not such a huge fan of getting fat in places other than my belly… I absolutely LOVE watching my stomach grow each and every day. Every day that I get bigger… it means that my precious daughter is getting bigger, too. I love having a constant reminder that my husband and I made a beautiful growing baby girl!

5 nesting

Yes, you read that right. Nesting.

Many people do not believe that nesting is even a real side effect of being pregnant. However, I can assure you, for me it is. Prior to being pregnant, I did not even notice the messes around me. I would allow my house to get so cluttered that it was hard to walk around in it. However, NESTING has completely changed all of that. Now I am absolutely obsessed with keeping things tidy. I feel that the cleaner the house is, the better it is for my sweet child. I love this about being pregnant because it has really shown me how much better and easier life is when the space that you’re living in is not a mess. My husband and I both hope that my nesting does not go away once baby girl arrives!

4 maternity clothes

So, for all of you who are mothers… you already know this. However, for those of you who are not already mothers — let me tell you. MATERNITY CLOTHES ARE INCREDIBLE. They are SO comfortable and cozy! I will not be surprised if I continue wearing maternity clothes long after I have delivered my daughter!
