Friday Favourites

Linking up with AndreaErika and Narci for Friday Favourites. 

I am not one of those people who loves being pregnant, but since I definitely appreciate that this is a privilege, I am focusing on some positives today.  These are the five favourite things about being pregnant:

Having my little buddy with me.
I am never alone, I always have someone with me, even in the shower.  I don't talk as much to this baby as I did with E, but it is nice to know he's there.  I remember feeling lonely the first time I had a shower after E was born because I was all by myself in there.

Feeling all of the movement.
This child is super active already and I felt movement early on and consistently.  It can be a little uncomfortable at times, but really it is pretty cool to have that feeling. 

Fizzy lemonade.
I really miss my wine, beer, martinis, etc. but it is a good break.  It gives me a chance to enjoy some fizzy lemonade which is a pretty great drink for the summertime and something I would probably not be ordering/buying if I was drinking alcohol.

Taking it easy.
As you can tell from reading my weekend recap posts, we like to keep busy and stay active.  A few times this summer we have not made plans, or E and Dave have gone off somewhere together while I have stayed home.  It is nice to take a break sometimes and enjoy some quiet time. 

Having the excuse "I'm growing a human!". 
Maybe I want to go to bed early, or skip an event at work, or complain a little more than usual about something.  If anyone gives me a hard time (and they don't really at all), "Hey! I'm growing a human!" is the best thing to say.  There is no comeback for that.  It is a true little miracle that is pretty amazing.
