10 Things Any Woman Can Look Forward To During Pregnancy

By  | 


For me, pregnancy was okay. I didn’t have a bad time, but it was nothing to write home about. I personally am not a very patient person, so I was more so looking forward to the end product. I had a hard time glowing and radiating love and waiting for my baby to grow inside of me. I just wanted him to get out so that I could figure out the intimidating newborn stuff and get to know him already. Did I mention that I’m not very patient?

Pregnancy was so-so, and it definitely didn’t blow my skirt up. There were only a few super-amazing-tastic things that I did while pregnant, like setting aside an entire weekend to painstakingly create an amazing baby shower registry just because I had nothing better to do with my time. My husband was even kind enough to pretend like he really cared what type of newborn washcloths I registered for. What a guy.

Other than that, it was a long, desolate stretch of nine months, where I waited with anticipation for my water to break. If you’re anything like me, you may have been bored during your pregnancy too. Nine months is a long time to wait for the literal fruit of your labor.

Fortunately, there are 10 very fun things to look forward to during pregnancy as the “highlight” of your experience. Pregnancy ain’t all bad:

1. Take a pregnancy test.

2. Secretly announce your positive pregnancy test to your mom, sister, and BFF.

3. Wait until 12 weeks to make the big announcement on Facebook.

4. Start showing.

5. Buy maternity clothes.

6. Find out the gender at 20 weeks.

7. Do a gender reveal on Facebook.

8. Register for baby stuff.

9. Start your maternity leave a few days early.

10. Get that baby out of your body. (!!!)
