Are You a Better Person When Pregnant?

Jul 21 2009 - 9:00am

I admit it. I watched Lindsay Lohan's [1] new movie, Labor Pains [2]. As a woman faking a pregnancy, she supported her antics by saying, "I'm a better person when I'm pregnant." It got me thinking — was I a better person while pregnant? I didn't drink [3] and it's been eons since I lit up a cigarette [4]. I attended prenatal yoga and swim classes [5], drove more cautiously and tried to keep a cool temper in an effort not to stress [6] my unborn baby. I even gave up fast food [7] and dined on fruits and vegetables to up my nutrient intake. Many hormonal mamas-to-be are notoriously known for their devilish moments [8] — a fate from which I was not immune. Pregnancy caused me to be more conscientious, but I'm not sure if it made me a better person. How about you?
