So, I’ve been thinking about all the cool/convenient things we could have as expecting ladies… So far I have these,
(1) safe handheld personal ultrasound machines that allow us to check on the baby whenever we want 🙂
(2) a beep thingy that reminds me not to drink caffeine!!
(3) some super sciency machine that allows my spouse to feel exactly what i feel 🙂
What about you guys? What do you find yourself thinking about that would make your life so much easier/more fun?

1. Fetal Doppler! Best purchase I made during my pregnancy. I check the heartbeat if I ever feel nervous.
2. Cell phone alarm that goes off every 15 minutes? LOL
3. Watch this video, you will love it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gw5ayibQ-E0 (men experiences contractions)
For me… I’d just like a personal massage therapist at my house at all times lol! And maybe a person chef too…

If alcohol was good for baby so I could have some drinks.
Haaaaaa. Think I’m really going to miss it with basketball season starting next week
Or maybe miraculously not being so fatigued and winded so I can run more than 2 miles without struggling.

A personal chef that understands what the flavour is in my head that I’m craving- they must also clean up after themselves and do dishes.
A machine that counts your calories and give you gentle warnings when you’ve had too much of something, or can tell you you need more of this.

Both of these would be wonderful lol I will say I dont really mind not drinking anymore although sometimes it would be nice to drink wine with my dinner! I do like waking up on the weekends and feeling good

Something that magically removes all the awful smells that make me puke. Something that removes my food aversions.

A window into my uterus, so I can watch the princess kick and swim around in there!

@SaraP2012: I don’t miss it for the most part (certainly less than I thought I would!) but there are special times when I’d like to have some (tgiving, xmas!). Hoping it’s not too hard for me during basketball season…having a couple of drinks during intense games really helps me to calm down (mostly in March). I get really worked up! I’m terrible!

@kes18: No I totally understand I was at a bar on Saturday for about 8 hours watching college football and I was a little annoyed that I couldnt drink. I just made up for it with sprite and fried foods lol I will say that feeling him kicking around made it a lot easier to not miss the booze. It was little harder when I didnt feel the baby or even really look that pregnant.

@megz06: @BrandNewBride: Yes and Yes!!!! Also, a machine that shocks anyone making rude comments about the pregnancy.

@BrandNewBride: Omg- one of the girls on FB was talking about someone having surgery while pregnant and she could see her fetus through the incision. So, we can make that happen for you… AAAH!

Ditto on the time machine and the chef that makes what I’m craving!
What about the ability to stop time so that I can sleep for longer without missing out on everything else that I should be taking care of?
