What's Awesome About Pregnancy?

You hear so much about the downside of pregnancy -- the aches, the pains, the poking, the puking, the gaining, and the interminable waiting at the doctor’s office. But it’s also a wondrous time as this little life grows inside of you. Never mind that there's a whole host of serious pregnancy perks that have nothing to do with the baby. As your body works on overtime, you may find that suddenly you have amazing skin, hair and nails, and family, friends and strangers want to pamper you 24/7. We asked moms to share their favorite things about being pregnant. Read these stories the next time you feel morning sickness coming on.

i agree, no period for 9mo is all kinds of awesome! the movement and the baby prep. i didnt realize how much i love preparing for new baby (shopping, getting the room together, etc.) until i had a child i had to prepare a funeral for instead of a nursery. i am totally making up for it this time and going baby prep crazy!
