Not sure if we've mentioned it yet here on The Stir, but Snooki's pregnant. That's right. Snooki's pregnant, Snooki's pregnant, Snooki's pregnant. And since you've most likely heard about this gem of gossip ad nauseum, I know what you're probably thinking right now: Blarg, another article about Snooki and her fist-pumping fetus? What else could there possibly be left to learn about this? Answer: Everything.
Okay, not everything, but at the very least, one thing. Did you know that Snooki thinks that "being one of those moms who's pregnant in the club" is "disgusting"? And did you know that, for the first time as usual, I disagree with her?
Life doesn't stop because you're pregnant. And, please, understand, dear readers, that I am not saying that Snooki -- or anybody -- should continue to go out and party every night in spite of being pregnant if that was their "life" before. That wouldn't be smart. But I am saying that, sometimes, we've gotta be "the mom who's pregnant in the club."
Take last night, for instance. After work, a bunch of my co-workers were going out for drinks to celebrate some good news for a colleague -- and I wanted to go to share in the merriment. So, I went.
Did I look ... eye-catching rocking a nearly-eight-month baby bump in a sweaty, rowdy sports bar? Yeah, I'm sure I did. Trips to the bathroom were often met with double-takes. But I certainly don't think what I was doing was "disgusting." I was sitting there, sipping on water, talking with my co-workers. No harm, no foul. If I were dancing on the bar in seven-inch stilettos with an ambiguous-looking cocktail, it'd be another story. But I wasn't. I was just hanging out with friends.
There's going to be birthday parties, anniversaries, weddings, etc. that come up while you're pregnant. And you shouldn't sit them out because you "feel weird" -- even if said events are in a bar or a club. Just be responsible. Nine months is a long time, ladies. Do you really want to sit on your couch that long?

Did you/do you "go out" while pregnant?
