10 Things Just As ‘Brave’ As Wearing A Bikini While Pregnant
Doling out the B word for women who don a bikini while pregnant is derogatory considering what actually merits the word “brave.” Saving people from a burning building, confronting an attacker, and running a marathon as an amputee all come to mind. The whole leaving the house without makeup/ bikini while pregnant narrative is all water from the same condescending Lady well.
But to put the feat in proper perspective, the Mommyish staff and I have come up with tasks just as “brave.” I hope you brought your courage with you today.
1. Going to IKEA on a Saturday
2. Going to a new hair salon
Does carry a certain risk factor.

4. Going to the DMV
I salute you.
5. Washing your whites with your darks
Oh, you crafty.

6. Getting a root canal
7. Watching Fox News
