Here's the truth about why I love being pregnant:
I get to create life. There is nothing more empowering and glorifying to God than knowing my body is doing what it was designed to do, and I am responsible for bringing humans into this world.
The babies are all mine! Selfish, I know, but I don't have to share them. I get to rub my belly with pride, feel the kicking sensations from the inside, and protect them all by myself.
Walking around a mall, vacuuming, and mopping count as exercise. I don't feel any need or pressure to go to the gym or physically exert myself. Of course, I try to stay active, but not to the point of pain.
It is 100% acceptable to gain weight and eat what I want without judgment. It's the only time in my life where I can be enormous and feel beautiful at the same time.
I get to take as many naps as I want, completely guilt-free. I have always been one to enjoy an afternoon nap, but it is a necessity while pregnant. I do not have one shred of guilt peacefully napping, knowing that I'm giving my body the essential rest it needs to keep my babies healthy.
As long as I'm pregnant, I don't have to deal with newborns. I know I will love my babies, but that doesn't mean I enjoy the post partum hormones, sleep deprivation, exclusive responsibility of feedings, and recovery from delivery. If I could just fast forward to 3 month old babies...
