Most of us know that being a mom is one of the hardest jobs in the world.
Being a mom is a full time job that some moms have to juggle with another full time. The only difference is that the full time job you put more hours into (being a mom) doesn’t pay as well… Unless you count adorable smiles and hugs as payment, then it’s the best paying job in the world.
When you’re a mom, you work around the clock, trying to make sure that your kid is happy, healthy, and most importantly, alive.
It’s a tough job but someone has to do it, right?
Moms don’t get enough credit for all the things they do to look after their family, it’s sad but true. Moms look after us every day of the year, surely they deserve more than one day to celebrate them? I certainly think so!
Becoming a mom is tricky.
It’s nine long months of baking the bun you’ve got in your oven, and waiting for the big day when you finally get to hold your little bundle of joy!
But pregnancy can do some pretty crazy things to you, and it can feel weird and overwhelming.
Especially if your a new mom!
So here is a list of some of the weirdest things pregnancy does to the expectant mother!
You Get Rather Attached To Your Body Pillow
Of course we can always turn to our partners for support, but when a woman’s pregnant, those hormones can make her crazy for emotional support.
That’s why a lot of the time, pregnant women become very attached to their pregnancy pillows.
I know when I was pregnant with my first child, you couldn’t separate me from my pillow! It was perfect for taking the weight of my belly off my spine.
You View Fruit Very Entirely Differently
You know that pregnancy tracking device that compares your gestating fetus to different kinds of foods? Yeah, try eating cantaloupe after being told that’s what your unborn child is the size of.
You Put Headphones On Your Stomach
There are a lot of studies that suggest babies can hear music while they’re in your baby tummy.
That’s why a lot of parents play their children music by putting headphones on their bumps, hoping they’ll grow up to love that certain type of music, and that it’ll benefit their brains.
Don’t believe me? Look it up, there are a lot of researched benefits to your baby listening to music when they’re in the womb.
You Overly Modify Your Work Out
Does standing push-ups still counts as working out?
You Get Away With Odd Clothing Choices
You can get away with wearing a sundress as a skirt, especially in summer when it’s super hot!
Maternity clothes, can be pretty expensive, that’s why shimmying your tube-top sundress to your waist is one of the best pregnancy hacks out there!
You Have The A/C And The Fan On
A pregnant woman is constantly on the verge of over-heating all the time because of all the crazy things going on with her body. That’s why a pregnant woman’s AC unit is her best friend!
You Eat Strange Food Combinations
Pickles and jam? Sounds good to me!
Seriously, pregnancy cravings are crazy!
There are certain things should not go together, yet they taste so delicious when combined and shoved into your mouth!
You Dream About Being Pregnant With Animals
I don’t know why but pregnancy can give you some pretty crazy dreams.
It’s not normal for women to dream that they’re giving birth to cats, dogs, and other animals!
