Positive Things About Being Pregnant

In the interest of saying something positive today, even though I’m feeling kind of low, here’s a list of positive things about being pregnant:

* eating carbs (dairy, veg, whole grains, burritos)
* taking naps
* foregoing wearing high heels with good cause
* healthy hair
* beautiful long nails (which will have to be cut and kept short as soon as baby arrives)
* full-fat, cream-on-the-top vanilla yogurt
* pregnancy blend tea
* increased sex drive
* sex
* smiles and good wishes from almost everybody
* baby kicks
* being told I’m beautiful even though I’m rounder and heavier than normal
* unagi, cooked shrimp, and the Chris Webber roll at Samurai (because without them, I’d die)
* a husband who is grateful and wants this baby
* daydreaming
* the name game
* watching Lucas talk to my belly

    Wow. This is particularly poignant to me, as I was apparently similtainiously writting a piece in my own journal about how I may never have kids. Weird.

    Ooh. Sorry. The list of positive things about being a mom is much longer than this one about being pregnant. But, to each her own.

    Hey, I’m sorry, didn’t mean to make you feel bad. I just thought it was funny-interesting that we both wrote something on a related topic at the exact same time…

    Wait – go back to the Lucas talking to your belly thing. As one who will not be experiencing that funny lovely thing, please indulge me and post, baby, post!
