5 Ways Pregnancy is Like a Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino

1. Parts of it are sweet....there's nothing like hearing the heartbeat for the first time or feeling those first little flutters. 

2. Parts of it are sour....morning sickness, anyone?

4. It's for a limited time....just like those 5 days of the unicorn frapp flew by, so will your pregnancy. Take some time to savor it.
