More than three quarters of expectant mums enjoy being pregnant and indulge in the positive aspects of pregnancy, according to a recent survey.
The study conducted by MyVoucherCodes.co.uk revealed that mums-to-be secretly enjoy many of the aspects of pregnancy, often using them to their advantage.
For example, 56% of the 1,181 women surveyed said they had used tiredness during pregnancy as an excuse not to attend social events, when they actually felt fine.
Eighty-nine per cent of the mums questioned also said the thing they enjoyed the most about pregnancy was being able to eat more, while 74% liked that they could exercise less during pregnancy.
Other guilty pleasures included being given seats on public transport (54%), having an excuse to have a lie-in (51%) and having your partner give you extra attention (46%).
But less of a guilty pleasure, 71% of mums said the thing they liked the most about being pregnant was feeling their baby move – you softies, you!
