5 Ways to Enjoy Your Pregnancy

Pregnancy, though a beautiful experience, isn't always the most comfortable of nine months. And while rewarding at the end, when your beautiful new baby arrives, the journey along the way can be fraught with back pain, front pain, tiredness, sickness and a myriad of other issues. But don't let it get you down. In addition to experiencing something no man has ever had the joy to, pregnancy can also be a fun time, and here's how:

1. Don't stop shopping
If you're like a lot of women, you live for shopping. And while in normal times you may practice restraint and only buy the odd item here or there, consider this... when pregnant your size changes, it’s like gaining or losing a great deal of weight -- you need a new wardrobe. While maternity wear may not be your ideal shopping category, some of the clothing made today is truly stunning, and designer! Head online and use your growing size as an excuse to shop for a new wardrobe!

2. Pamper
Being pregnant and having the many ailments you do, is also an excuse to pamper. Most mums never put themselves first, but carrying a baby and feeling the tiredness and nausea are a great excuse. Make yourself feel better -- have a spa treatment, a massage or just get your nails done. You deserve it!

3. Eat 
Ok, being pregnant doesn't mean you should do your best to put on 100kgs of non-baby weight, but it does mean you have a little bit of leeway -- you're eating for two after all. When not pregnant, many women watch what they eat and stay away from the things that ultimately are their biggest pleasures. Use your pregnancy as an opportunity to get back in touch with your taste buds. You don't have to say no to that piece of chocolate or a slice of birthday cake at work anymore -- forget your figure and enjoy yourself!

4. Get in touch with your inner child
Jump on the Internet and buy some online
toys. Think about all the things you wanted as a child and scour through pages of amazing and awe inspiring toys until you find them for your child. This activity is not only fun, but it will take you back! Feel the nostalgia from images of toys you played with as a child and picture the fun you'll have with your baby on the way!

5. Milk it for all it’s worth! 
You shouldn't think it -- but yes, being pregnant is a great opportunity to milk it for all it’s worth! Not to the detriment of others, but just to gain a few small pleasures. Being pregnant means ALWAYS getting a seat on the bus or train, people generally treating you nicely or speaking kindly to you even if they don't know you, never having to lift anything and getting out of chores you might usually do. Why not let your partner know you're just too tired to cook that night, or your aching feet need a massage?
