Best thing about pregnancy Your stories

The best thing about pregnancy is…

Mum-of-two and social media supremo Carol outreached to the blogerati with the question “what’s the best thing about pregnancy?”



I have to say being pregnant is not one of my favourite things. Don’t get me wrong I love being a mum but if pregnancy could be a little shorter that would be fine by me. It wasn’t plain sailing for me either times, what with gestational diabetes and all the other pregnancy related niggles. Having said that there are a few aspects of pregnancy that I really miss like my baby kicking me, the excitement of the scans, knowing that I’d soon have a baby to hold in my arms and love forever… and rocking my bump!

I was interested to know what other mums loved about being pregnant so I put the question to them (which led to some asking if I was pregnant again. Answer: “No I’m not!”) Here’s what they said:
