Ah, the thick, glossy, perfect hair, the rosy glow and those Victoria鈥檚 Secret Angel-level boobs. Yes, these are just some of the perks of pregnancy. Even if you feel like an earthy mama who is totally in touch with all things woman, we鈥檙e betting that there are a few parts of being preggo (like the weird ways your body changes!) that you won鈥檛 be sad to see go. So, if you鈥檙e having one of those 鈥淚s it just me?鈥 days, stay calm. Gather 鈥榬ound and take comfort in the not-so-awesome parts of pregnancy that you totally won鈥檛 miss. Like, ever.

A pregnant woman holds her bump in kitchen window

1. Gassy Lass: It鈥檚 not the four chili cheese dogs you just downed that are making you bloat and break wind (okay, maybe they鈥檙e not completely innocent in all this!). But pregnancy can make your GI system work a little slower. The result? Gas, gas and more gas.

2. Nosy Issues: You feel an itch in your nose鈥 and it doesn鈥檛 seem to want to stop. A dry, itchy (and even bleeding) nose is something that many pregnant women experience. Along with the dryness, you may also have some congestion and stuffiness that last through delivery day.

3. Drooling Diva: When it comes to the pool of drool escaping from your mouth, you rival Fido. And that鈥檚 not even mentioning the river flowing down onto your pillow at night. The excess saliva is something that you could do without right now, next week, on your baby鈥檚 first birthday鈥 you get the idea.

4. Waddling Away: You used to walk, and had you wanted to strut (catwalk style), you could have done that too. Being pregnant changes your center of gravity and adds weight to different areas. The result is that distinctive pregnant lady waddle. Whether your new way of walking is making it tough to get through a day of work, or you鈥檙e getting tired of wearing comfortable (and entirely unattractive) shoes, you鈥檒l be grateful for the return of your regular gait.

5. Discharge on the Double: As your hormones change, you鈥檒l experience plenty of new pregnancy symptoms. One of the least comfortable ones is the increase in vaginal discharge. So, grab a mini pad and look forward to your post-pregnancy days.

6. Morning Sickness: Or, should we call it 24/7 sickness? You wake up queasy, your tummy is turning at lunchtime and, by dinner, you鈥檙e just about ready to give up on food entirely. The days of actually enjoying a meal are long gone. Don鈥檛 stress. This too 鈥 like the other not-so-fine points of pregnancy 鈥 shall pass.

7. All the Questions: Yeah, the symptoms suck, and they鈥檙e probably what you鈥檒l miss least about pregnancy. But they aren鈥檛 the only things that you鈥檒l happily wave goodbye to. The never-ending stream of questions from your BFF, coworker, cousin, aunt, bagger at the grocery store and crossing guard are about to drive you batty. From 鈥淪o, when are you due?鈥 to 鈥淵ou鈥檙e carrying low鈥 it must be a boy?鈥 鈥 the constant questions won鈥檛 be necessary when you have a child to show off.
