Better Person When Pregnant

Are You a Better Person When Pregnant?

I admit it. I watched Lindsay Lohan's new movie, Labor Pains. 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 and it's been eons since I lit up a cigarette. I attended prenatal yoga and swim classes, drove more cautiously and tried to keep a cool temper in an effort not to stress my unborn baby. I even gave up fast food and dined on fruits and vegetables to up my nutrient intake. Many hormonal mamas-to-be are notoriously known for their devilish moments — 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?

My first pregnancy, I was moody as hell for about 3 weeks and only with children. It was weird. This time around..Im hormonal and constantly crying or defensive about something. Its not been fun.

I was a little moody during both my pregnancies at times but how can you not be when you're leaning over a toilet bowl 80% of the time and your feet are so swollen you can't wear shoes except for flip flops and with my second pregnancy I had very cold toes because it was winter! But in the end it is definitely worth it, I have 2 beautiful boys to show for it oh and a few stretchmarks but that's ok that's just the price you have to pay to be a mom! Lol! Wouldn't have it any other way! :)

Me too Roaring/ CKeller... I don't drink very much anymore, have never smoked/ done drugs, and I'm very active. And I'm well on my way to accomplishing my goal of becoming an Ironman before I'm pregnant

I am trying to become a better person BEFORE I have kids. This includes living healthily, getting my life in order (know what I want to do in life), and developing certain good habits. Trying to always keep a cool temper is one of them.

I really want to know if the Sugar network employees are getting paid to talk about Lindsey and her movies/appearances/magazine covers? because its fishy to me how much she is worshipped on here.
