Pregnancy is hard work. It might look like all pregnant women do is lie on the couch and binge Game of Thrones, but they also grew their baby's lungs (and also seriously considered naming their child Daenerys, probably). They also suffer multiple maladies and indignities. So it only makes sense that pregnant women are allowed to occasionally take advantage of their "delicate condition." Out of pure curiosity (and perhaps ideas for next time), I asked moms to reveal the one thing they got away with while pregnant.
I had a goddamn miserable pregnancy (have I mentioned my hemorrhoids?), and I worked as a teacher full time until one week before my due date. You're damn right I took full advantage of my situation. I stopped cooking anything that wasn't Hamburger Helper, made my partner scoop the litter box, acted like a total weirdo with my sister, and slept in the staff room during assemblies while my co-workers watched my students. Perhaps the best was the amount of ice cream I consumed, because no one who values their life questions what a pregnant mama chooses to eat. While my husband claims it was the entire third trimester, I will cop to the last two weeks that I demanded he bring me home my daily chocolate milkshake.
Being pregnant can be the pits, so kudos to these ladies for making the most of it!
