11 Reasons Pregnancy Makes You Feel Beautiful

August 04, 2015

You might think this is a long shot, what with the nausea and the backache – but it’s easier to believe than you think…

 

Hair, glorious hair!

Once you’re pregnant, you can enjoy beautiful locks that would make Rapunzel sick with envy. New hormones alter your hair cycle, making it fuller and longer.

 

Boob-a-licious

You can keep that cash you saved for an enhancement. By now you’re well on your way to the breasts you’ve always wanted.

 

Perfect teeth

But not through hormonal magic. This one’s thanks to the NHS, which entitles you to free dental care from the moment you’re pregnant until your child is a year old.

 

Endless beauty sleep

Doctor’s orders! Sleep is vital – and unavoidable – during pregnancy.

 

With sleep comes sexy dreams

You may be alarmed (and excited) to know that many women say they had vivid sexual dreams while they were pregnant.

 

Hello, libido

As well as some kinky dreams, a lot of pregnant women have also reported times where they felt like they couldn’t get enough of their partner. Have fun!

 

Better living through orgasms

Your orgasms will be better than ever! This is because of the increased blood flow to your nether regions…

 

Daily massages

Well, they’re not a compulsory health requirement given away on the NHS. But massages are widely believed to be highly beneficial for pregnancy. General studies have found they work wonders for reducing stress hormones and making you feel more relaxed.

 

A full stop on periods

For the most part, you can forget all the stress and upkeep that comes with the unwanted monthly intruder. Which means more time enjoying your newfound (or perhaps improved) gorgeousness.

 

#BumpLove

Despite all the discomfort that comes with pregnancy, you’re growing a human being! You can show off your bump with pride knowing you’re doing something pretty darn amazing – and feel beautiful doing it.

 

Feeling your baby kick

It doesn’t get more beautiful than that.

This condition is called Couvade Syndrome which comes from the French word “couver” meaning “to hatch” and although most doctors and midwives will tell you they have experienced expectant fathers suffering from this condition there is no medical diagnosis for it. However Dr Arthur Brennan, who was the author of the study undertaken at St George’s Hospital says: "Some people may perceive this as men trying to get in on the act but far from being attention-seeking, these symptoms are involuntary”.
