Pregnancy makes women into superheroes, but not in the way you’d expect. Yes, the miracle of life is wonderful and all, but that’s not what we’re talking about. We mean pregnancy gives women powers that are the stuff of Marvel Comics legend.
Here’s what we mean:
1. Super smell
To me this is the coolest power because if you’re in a diabolical mood, you can really weird people out. When I was pregnant, I could smell who was coming down the hall at work, and would call their name before I could see them. I could smell THROUGH THE WALL (or maybe an air duct) that someone was eating an orange in the next office, and I’d email asking about it.
Pregnant women aren’t allowed to drink, so we’ve got to get our kicks somewhere.
