It's officially Peanut's due date. As in, she's due to come out today. Guess who missed the memo?
Instead of harping on the negatives, I decided to make a list of things that I love about being pregnant.
- The belly: I seriously love it. I thought I would have a hard time adjusting to the extra weight, but I love the big, tight belly! I think it looks cute. Although many women can't stand other people touching their bellies when pregnant, I love it! I welcome all hands on my big round front hump and get excited for everyone to feel the baby kick or move.
- Healthy eating: I've always been on the healthy side, but being pregnant made me very aware of what I was consuming. That doesn't mean that I don't indulge in Big Macs and hot dogs, but generally, I've been eating really well and feeling great because of it.
- Feeling great: I know this isn't something that many women feel when pregnant and I'll probably be stabbed by a few of you for this one, but I feel great. Before the pregnancy I had a lot of digestive issues and since I got pregnant, it all went away! I've been able to eat so many things I couldn't eat before (including ice cream!). I'm also incredibly lucky for never getting morning sickness or a lot of other issues that go hand-in-hand with pregnancy.
- Extra care and attention: mostly from my husband, but others as well! Jon's been such a doting daddy-to-be. He has really picked up on extra chores around the house and haven't complained (much) about the extra duties. He's also become even more attentive and protective, which I find wicked cute. Even strangers seem to treat you differently when you're pregnant - I've never had so many doors held open or admiring looks from strangers.
