My partner and I moved into a new house during my second trimester, and one of the first things he did once we closed on it, was start researching a projector and screen for our master bedroom. "You're Netflixing a lot these days, so I figured you should do it in style." (Best. Husband. Ever.) I couldn't tell if my excitement was a sign that I'd become super lazy or laid-back during pregnancy, but the moment I realized I no longer cared about the distinction was definitely one of those pregnancy moments that prove you're a laid-back mom.
Even if it’s not normally your speed, pregnancy is the perfect time to relax and become a more laid-back person. When your body is making another human being, there's just not a whole lot of energy left over to sweat the small stuff — especially when previously small stuff (like going up and down the stairs) can literally make you sweat. Rather than trying to fight with your body to try to keep doing things the same way your non-pregnant self would, laid-back moms just accept that things are different now, and they don't freak out over that.
Besides, there are plenty of things to freak out over during pregnancy, laid-back mom or not. Laid-back moms realize that there's no point in adding to the list by worrying about not totally essential things, like putting on real pants or whether or not indulging in sushi is the doomsday situation your online mom group seems to think it is. Ditto for keeping up a pedicure or anything like that. (If I can't see my feet, I don't need to care about what they look like.) If you recognize the following moments from your own life, welcome to the laid-back moms club. We meet virtually so none of the pregnant ladies have to re-figure out the one position that makes them comfortable all over again (or share snacks).
