11 Awesome Benefits Of Being Pregnant

Before I bid adieu to  the most amazing experience of my life, I really want to do this post. Inspite of going through all the morning sickness, fatigue and reduction in productivity, I never even doubted my decision of getting pregnant at this age. The reason being – when I was diagnosed with PCOS, I was really worried about pregnancy – I dreaded the long wait and treatment and wanted to be healthy and pregnant as soon as possible. In fact, whenever I used to see/meet my friends who have babies or were expecting, it used to even strengthen my desire. Besides this, there are a  lot of benefits which I’d like to put in front of you –

Thas me in my end trimester :D..aah! i look like a burger 🙁


amazing benefits of being pregnant


1. First of all, the moment you are pregnant, attitude of people around you changes a lot. Suddenly, they’re very concerned about you and express even more joy and excitement (especially the elderly) towards your pregnancy, than even yourself.

2. Having struggled with keeping weight under control sofar in my life, it was the first time my doctor actually asked me ‘Why am I not gaining weight :)’ … I could enjoy eating all my favorite dishes without guilt, which still did not increase my weight … ah heaven ! What else does a foodie ask for?

3. You can express anything to anyone you don’t like, and then term it as mood swing 😉 … I myself did this couple of times and was forgiven immediately, which is impossible to do otherwise.

4. I enjoyed the endless cribbing which everyone around me listened, without getting bored, and tried to pacify my slightest of worries.

5. As my bump got apparent, I started getting special preference in public places – for instance people offering chairs in a busy restaurant or allowing me to by pass a long queue. As time passed, I myself started asking for getting my task done out of turn, asap.

6. Even at 2 am in night, you can ask your hubby for foot massage, head massage, shoulder massage – and you’ll get ’em all without the least sign of annoyance. (I’m sure it is there deep inside, but just can’t come out this time :D)

7. The second trimester is the best, when you’ve minimum health problems, your skin is glowing, and people start congratulating you for your bump, and you’re also more confident about your pregnancy (lesser chances of miscarriage), and is the only period during pregnancy when you can get slightly intimate with your partner comfortably 😛

8. The first sensation of butterflies in your tummy, the first kick, the first movements – which only you in the world can feel, while your  hubby can only hear / guess from your expressions – makes you feel awesome and really blessed being a woman!

9. Welcome to lazy woman world – you can skip your office / your work, you can doze off any time and no one will stop you or question you :).

10. Is it a Boy or a Girl – The Pink(y) or the Blue(Billoo) – the urge to ask the doctor about it makes you go crazy, you keep on thinking of it whole your pregnancy. In fact, I’m just a few days due, I still wanna know right now, what it is 🙂

11.Not to forget surprise gifts and baby shower which gives that special feeling 🙂

Now that I’m waiting for the baby to arrive, I’m surely going to miss the undue attention around me. My friends say I’ll even miss the bump, even when I have the  baby itself in my hands. I’ll miss the kicks and all the free time which I spent with my husband, knowing fully that now on, it’s going to be the 3 (and not 2) of us 🙂

If you have experienced pregnancy then do let us know what benefits did you enjoy of being pregnant 🙂

    • i second that Zara…write small notes for chunmun..about how you felt when you were carrying her…I have this very strong feeling that it will be her….give her one note for her birthday, of course when she learns to read…she will cherish them for her life…Your post made my eyes wet…I don’t know why….

  5. loved reading.. all ur points r really v true.. photos take during 2nd trim were the best of my entire life, my skin had so much glow.. 🙂 wish u a safe delivery and a lovely pinky or billoo soon (as u say.. )

  6. Pradnyaa says:

    Wow.. nice post Ana.. while reading I absolutely felt like I did towards to end of my term
    I still miss being preggo 🙂 its an experience every woman should have at least once in their life, and something that men just miss – too bad
    Once the baby is out there, in your arms, looking into your eyes, that moment the whole world turns upside down. And every thing – every little thing changes…
    The attachment towards the baby, this love is something that we have never experienced before.
    ok, am too senti . shud stop 🙂

  7. yeah being a pregnant is a most wonderful thing of the world. I have been enjoying inspite of some discomforts. Every moment is precious. waiting and then experiencing baby movement. every visit of Dr. ultrasound image of ur growing baby. sometimes unbelieveness that u r carrying life inside you. As u said Anamika I am sure that I would feel strange without baby kicks after delievery

  8. OMG..I can relate to all of this as if I’ve written the whole post 🙂
    Ana this post of urs surpasses all the makeup n fashion related posts any of us have ever written 🙂
    In my case the pregnancy n the birth of my now 3.5 yr old brat was a comfortable and lovely experience.
    Never puked,no cramps,no hatred towards any particular food..just the 8th n 9th months were a lil’ uncomfy but nothing big 🙂
    And I fully agree with ur last line..the *u & me time* becomes *our time* 🙂
    All the best..may u pop the baby out in the easiest possible manner 😛

  9. This is such great post, I am in a baby admire phase, where I see small kids and go all aww,such small fingers, and imagine how would a miniture divya or My Mr. K would look like and its gives goose bumps 🙂 (Sometimes)

    cutie cute post 🙂

  11. Hey I just got to know about you being a PCOS patient through ur previous post. I wanted to ask you one thing. I am also having PCOS and I have heard that it is really tough for these patients to conceive and all.. Well before moving further, congrats for ur pregnancy and can u plz throw sm light on this as i m really tensed abt this. I m 5 ft 3 in and I weigh around 60-61 kg. My gynaec hs asked me to reduce weight n hs put me on contraceptive pills. I have heard ppl complaining abt this disease n almost everyone hs told me tht such persons can get diabetes later on n its really tough for them to get pregnant.. is it really so? n if u dnt mind me asking can u tell me tht ws it tough or ok kind of for you to get conceived easily? I m sorry for trespassing in ur personal life.. bt hope u undrstnd my anxiety. 🙂 Anyway all the best for ur soon-to-be-coming-baby.. stay blessed! 😀

    • hey sehar, same pinch.. hahaha.. i have pcos too. first up i am not pregnant. but hoping to be.. but yes i hear its a long wait.. so ana pls reply or do a post on pcos and pregnancy.
      also sehar one major thing for ppl like us is to keep our weight down, and keep moving. exercising, just walking. as u knw it is tougher for us to lose weight. so it is all about eating carefully and working out every chance we get.. ignoring our weight will mean a sure way to get diabetes. as someone who works hard to keep my weight in check is to eat as frequently as possible.

      also probably this is a personal question, but it happened to me, for a long time the doctors just gave me medicines based on my sonography reports. ideally they shud also check for hormones, the TSH tests etc. because one, they can then prescribe hormones that suit you better, and two make sure about the severity. sadly most doctors skip these tests, they feel they are extravagant. so do check with your doctor about these tests,if not already done.

      • I will surely work on this post once pintoo comes out 🙂 i will right now say that believe in you self and wok towards it .there r so so many cases where women have conceived with little bit of determination.

        • hey thanks ana. i knw u dont need ne one saying this, but hang in there girl and enjoy the extended pamper time.. btw pintoo is such a cute name. i call one of my frnds whose surname is pinto , pintukli.. hahaha
