When you're pregnant, people are just nicer to you. They hold doors, offer to cook for you, and give up seats. Among all the nice things you received while you were pregnant, there were likely some gestures that were nicer than others. Hear some stories of kindness from fellow mamas!

While on complete bed rest with my fourth pregnancy, I had many people from my MOPS group bring me meals. Some people I did not even know. We were fed for about six weeks including Christmas morning (four years ago). It was a life saver since my husband had to work and take care of me and three kids. — Jennifer Deller Van Riper

At 9 months I went to pick up chicken parm and pasta on my way to graduate school and I realized I forgot my ATM card. The owner gave it to me for free and gave me a second one because he thought my husband should not go hungry due to not being able to sleep for the next 6 weeks. — Laura Facciponti Ferrante

When we got pregnant with our second child we did not want to know the gender. The only problem was that we did not want a gender neutral room. We decided that only my mom would find out, and she collected and organized everything for the nursery. When we got home from the hospital our nursery was complete. I don't know how she kept it a secret! — Laura Conoly Bugg

At the airport on a layover I was so excited to get bbq. Then I picked up my tray and it spilled the whole plate al over the floor. I just stood there pregnant and crying over spilled bbq but they made me a whole new tray right away for free! — Rachel Blate

In 2006, when I was pregnant with my twins, my best friend from Virginia flew me up from Florida for a surprise baby shower. She took me shopping for a pretty new shirt and all (all I wore at the time was white tees due to my big belly). She and all my old friends got together and bought me a super nice double stroller, and tons of other much needed items! They didn't all fit on the plane so we had to ship them via Greyhound. — Jennifer Volk
