Perhaps everybody and everything in your life seems to be reminding you of just how difficult and challenging pregnancy can be?
Maybe comments on stretch marks, AWOL pelvic floors, varicose veins and enormous bottoms are ringing in your ears? Getting you down, even?
Take a deep breath. Push those thoughts aside. Because we’re here to tell you that there are lots of great things about pregnancy too.
Let us begin:
1. No more periods! Hurrah!
Granted, some of us dance around a campfire, wearing a flower crown and a beatific grin, celebrating the monthly decluttering of our uterine lining. True. But for others, the cramps and dampness live up to its name, The Curse.
So, hurrah for pregnancy when you don’t have to fork out for tampons and pads and stain remover to put the sparkle back in your undies.
