Sushi and a glass of wine. I sent DH to go pick up sushi from my favorite restaurant while I picked up some more supplies at Target. He took our 2 day old son into the restaurant and the guy there said he sees brand new babies there all the time for this exact reason!

Raw sushi (’cause I still eat lots of the cooked stuff) and then a glass of the wine I have been saving all summer. I breastfeed, so it may be a little bit before I am comfortable drinking the wine, but the sushi I will likely have my mom bring to me while I am still in the hospital lol.

My favorite winery only releases their Nova 7 wine during the summer, and I have a bottle stashed away, just screaming my name. I can’t wait for a glass!

Wine.  Definitely wine.  Oh, and I never ever ever pump & dump.  I do pump, but I freeze it in 1oz portions for later.  Once I go back to work and have to pump anyway, I thaw out the “boozy milk” and mix it with “untainted milk” and it’s dilute enough at that point I’m comfortable feeding it to baby.  Also, I don’t think I gave DD any drunk milk until she was a little older (6 months maybe?) and even then it was like 1oz of the boozy milk and 4 or 5 oz of the good stuff.

The best damn turkey sandwich I’ve ever had was the dry (according to my husband) one I had from the hospital refrigerator right after I gave birth (he says he felt so bad feeding it to me). That thing was AMAZING. I ate, like, 8 before I left the hospital (in our postpartum wing, they had a fridge stocked with all sorts of stuff, and you were free to take whatever.)

I don’t even eat turkey sandwiches very often, but for some reason, it killed me during my first pregnancy not to have them.

eocenia:  I love local wines.  Local, red, full bodied, oak aged, dry, robust red wines.  YUM!  Honestly though, I’ll go for any half decent red at this point!  7 more weeks, give or take, so I’m sure I can hang in there 🙂

Beer and brie cheese. Like a wheel of brie is what I’ll be eating… and taking stool softeners of course lol

I’m counting the time until brie…
