5 Reasons Thanksgiving is the Best When You’re Pregnant
First, we got to celebrate the cooler weather and the return of oversized sweaters and pumpkin everything and now — Thanksgiving!
If you're going to be celebrating with family and friends during this holiday, you may grumble at the fact that you can't partake in the wine to make it more tolerable (thanks to being pregnant), but there are a lot of reasons why Thanksgiving is actually the best when you're pregnant!
Don't believe me? Here are 5 solid reasons why Thanksgiving is even better when you're pregnant.
You have first dibs at dessert
OK, so people may pay extra attention to your plate when you're pregnant, seeing if you're eating for two, but who cares!? Tell your family that Baby demands an extra slice of apple pie — and it's all yours.
You have an excuse
If you already have too much to do on Thanksgiving and you really don't want to go to your cousin's gathering, who lives two hours away, you don't have to. Just tell them you're not feeling well — that you can't stop puking or that you can't fit into the car if you have to. Then, take the afternoon and have a well-deserved rest.
You're in the right pants already
You know those pants with the elastic band that everyone puts on when you're about to indulge in an amazing feat? Well, those are maternity pants, and you have an excuse to wear them and not have them be called your “fat pants.”
You can sleep
There's this idea that turkey makes everyone sleepy and that, after a big meal, everyone struggles to keep their eyes open — but you don't have to. Just curl up on the couch and take a nap. Your extra ZZZs will be blamed on your growing baby, and people will leave you be.
It's the perfect time to share the news
If you're not showing yet, and you're early in your pregnancy, Thanksgiving lends itself perfectly to announcing that you're pregnant. Your whole family is already together, and there are some seriously adorable announcements, thanks to turkeys.
