Top 10 Thoughts a Woman Has When She’s Pregnant!

Maybe you bought that pregnancy test (or maybe 3 or 4), and with much trepidation, you wait those excruciating 10 minutes to see if your morning pee will bring forth the “yeahgirlyoupregnant” sign in the result window.

So… yeah girl, you’re pregnant.

Now what?

Kat Gordon, creative director for Maternal Instinct, a company that specializes in marketing to moms, says that a woman’s use of online search (i.e. Google) DOUBLES when she becomes pregnant. Makes sense, because a woman’s body changes more dramatically than Obama’s poll numbers over the course of the nine months it takes to create that little bundle of joy.

Here’s some of the most common questions and concerns women have before the pee pee dries on the EPT:
“I did the math, and I conceived on that night I went on a wild drinking binge. Will my baby have two heads?”

Short answer: Probably not, but you better stop now.

“Should I tell people?”

It’s best to wait to tell everyone the news until the 12th week of pregnancy, because the risks of miscarriage decrease dramatically from that point on.

“Am I going to lose my body?”

Well, kinda.  You can forget about that hourglass waistline for the next 40 weeks.  Hourglasses ain’t gonna happen; sorry.

“Should I buy maternity clothes?”

In this economy?  Best to wait until your jeans don’t fit (around four months preggers) and shop the sale at the posh maternity stores. Remember, pregnancy is, by design, a temporary situation.

” Should I tell my boss?”

Not before you do your research and know your rights.  What’s your job’s policy on maternity leave?  What health procedures related to pregnancy are covered via your employer’s health insurance?  Better find out tout suite.

“Can I exercise?”

You’d better!  Studies show exercise makes delivery of that eight-pound hamhock a lot easier.  But if you haven’t been training for a marathon before you were pregnant, don’t start now.  Best to start with a walk around the block and build up from there.

“Will sex hurt the baby?”

I don’t care how “well-endowed” you partner is, your baby runs little risk of brain damage from “poking.”
