I was mid-way through the month of March, with Pi Day and the Ides of March behind me and St. Patrick’s Day and the first day of spring still ahead of me, when I realized I’ve learned a lot about enduring pregnancy in this particular month. In fact, I might even go as far as saying that there are a number of reasons why being pregnant in March is the best.
Now, I must present this information with a slight caveat. Last week, I had the distinct pleasure of writing about why being pregnant in March is actually the worst. However, since that day, the snow has melted, the sun has come out, plus we’re just a few short days away from my spouse’s spring break and I’m pretty excited about that. March might not be so bad after all.
Of course, the area I live, and its distinct seasons, probably has a lot to do with this sudden change of heart. There’s a crispness in the air and a positive energy that I’m noticing, and it’s downright pleasant. Could it be the actual beginnings of spring? A particular blend of hormones I’m enjoying at the cusp of my third trimester? The fact that my 2-year-old toddler has been extra cute lately? I don’t know, but I’m not complaining. Here’s why March might actually be an awesome month for pregnancy.
