12 Things Only a Pregnant Woman Could Get Away With

12 Things Only a Pregnant Woman Could Get Away WithPregnancy is always touted as that special time in your life. While that statement isn’t true for all women, it certainly is a time that I love.

Honestly, I would live 8 months pregnant all the time if I could, I love it that much.

We all know the special things that you get to experience when you’re pregnant. No longer needing to suck in that belly when you’re out in public, people giving you a seat on the bus, feeling a baby move and feeling comfortable in your skin. It’s wonderful and amazing.

There are some other perks to being pregnant as well. You get to experience and can get away with things that if you weren’t pregnant, well, it probably wouldn’t happen.

Click through to see 12 things only a pregnant woman could get away with:


  • Sleeping With the Window Open in the Dead of Winter 1 of 12
    Sleeping With the Window Open in the Dead of Winter
    I was never cold when I was pregnant and blame it on the "oven being on". At no other time could I get away with sleeping with the window wide open and having a fan on than when I was pregnant.

    Slacking on the Self Grooming
    Usually the no-shave thing is accepted during the winter when pants are in, but when you're pregnant and can't reach your legs -- you can get away with it and no one will think otherwise.

    Wearing Belly Shirts in the Summer
    Typically if you're over the age of 18 you shouldn't be wearing those crop-top belly shirts. That rule is gone if you're pregnant in the middle of a heat wave. You can get away with as little clothes as possible.

    Pregnancy and needing to pee is like breathing. If there's a line, you can usually bypass it when you're pregnant.

    The only time you could get away with eating a donut covered in chili (whcih was my craving when I was pregnant) is during those 9-10 months. Otherwise people just think your crazy ... or pregnant.
