At first it might seem like unfortunate timing to be pregnant over the festive season but actually it comes with some major benefits that would be a shame not to take full advantage off! Here's our top perks to being pregnant at Christmas...
Perfect excuse to just say NO!
There is always one or two invites this time of year that you just don't want to accept but sometimes out of politeness feel you should. Now you have the perfect excuse to just say no and stay in your PJs!!
Guilt free eating
Its the same every year - eat too much, sometimes drink too much and then try to undo all the over indulgence in January. This year you have the perfect excuse to not worry about eating every chocolate from the box or having those extra chipolatas with dinner. You deserve it!!
Sleep as much as you like
There's nothing like an afternoon nap (or food coma) on Christmas Day but now it comes with no risk of judgement! You can nap as much as you like and disappear to bed early guilt free. Bliss!!
Leave the party early
Trying to leave a party or any social catch up early is always tricky. Finding the right moment to escape without being persuaded to stay a little longer is always a challenge. This year, you don't have to plan an escape route in advance or make awkward excuses to everyone. You have the best reason of all to skip the party completely never mind leave when you want too, not when you feel its acceptable too.
Shop baby essentials in the sales
If you are at the shopping stage of pregnancy then its the perfect time of year to make the most of those betwixmas sales and grab yourself some bargain baby essentials. Even if you are not quite ready to start buying, its the ideal time to relax and spend some time researching and planning your list.
No hangovers to suffer
Last but not least, you can enjoy all of these perks hangover free! Plus there are plenty of delicious mocktails on offer to make you feel like you are not missing out on things to much as well.
