7 Things Every Pregnant Woman Should Do

Sure you can read all the pregnancy books, take your prenatal, but here are 7 other things you have to do at least once while you’re pregnant.

 

 

  • Wear a swimsuit in public.

 

So what, your ass and thigh area have a few more dimples. Wear your belly proud! You are growing a HUMAN in there. Bonus points for wearing a two-piece.

 

 

  • Go to a chiropractor.

 

All the back pains from pregnancy suck. Finding a good chiropractor will fix them all. Unless you pick a cheapo with no real experience and they fuck up your back for forever. Just make sure to do your research and find a good one.

 

 

  • Get out of a traffic ticket.

 

Use your pregnancy sympathy card while you have it. I’m not at all condoning or saying break the law but if you happen to get pulled over…there won’t be any judgment coming from me!

 

 

  • Mess with strangers.

 

“When are you due?” act shocked like you have no idea “What? Uhm…I’m not pregnant” soak up the look on their face for a few seconds before you put them out of their misery. Remember the good ole’ days, when random strangers didn’t have a free pass on commenting on your body? That was nice.

 

 

  • Treat yourself to a prenatal massage!

 

Some doctors actually recommend getting regular massages and I’m not sure there is anything better than getting a written order for massages. Name me one thing better. I bet you can’t!

 

 

  • Eat an entire pint of ice cream.

 

Go for it. Indulge. I’m not saying do this every night, but once in a while won’t hurt anyone. In fact in might save some people from your pregnancy mood swings!

 

 

  • Take some time to yourself.

 

Reconnect to the idea that you are your own separate person. Before your partner, before your baby, you were (still are) a badass! Being alone does the body and soul good.

 

Have some fun while you’re pregnant Mama. Not everything has to be so serious! Xoxo
