1. You can skip shaving your legs.
Taking a razor to your legs when you’ve got a baby bump to contend with is just asking for trouble. Sorry dad, but if there’s ever a time that a woman has an excuse to let things run wild, it’s now.
2. Cooler temps combat hot flashes.
You’re bound to run a little warmer due to hormones fluctuations and a ramped up metabolic rate. As your due date nears, you’ll welcome the cooler climate with open arms.
3. You have an excuse to wear jeggings and yoga pants every day.
Comfort is key, need I say more?
4. Guilt-free holiday eating.
Whether Halloween candy is your vice or entire pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, you’re going to gain weight anyway, so you might as well enjoy it!
5. You can go into hibernation mode.
Growing a baby is hard work. When the winter sun goes down early you don’t have to feel guilty about curling up on the couch with a Hallmark movie.
6. Welcome distractions.
The holidays bring on a whole slew of festivities to help the time fly by. Before you know it, you’re little one will be here!
7. You have a free pass.
On the flip side, if you’re not feeling the holiday soiree scene you’ve got a legitimate excuse not to go. No one is going to argue with a pregnant woman.
8. By the time you’ve got the hang of things it’ll be spring.
A winter due date means you’ll have had a couple months to master the baby carrier and ease up from being a breastfeeding hermit… just in time to get out in spring!
