Well, if it can’t be baby related then I will have to say a cup of coffee, a glass of ice cold coca cola from a can and all the sashimi I can eat!!!!

@Tatum:

You’re getting close! I’m jealous that you have someone to swap maternity clothes with. I have no one! 🙁

I know what I was most happy about post-partum: being able to move and having energy to do so!  I kept overdoing it once we got home from the hospital because I was so excited to be able to do things for myself again.  I got my own glass of water because if I was thirsty I could just jump up and get it, I vacuumed the house, I could bend!  It was the most glorious thing.

@Pelikila:  This!

I remember after having my babies how wonderful it felt to be able to move around. For me at least, the soreness after delivery, even after a c-section, was much less discomfort than being nine months pregnant and having sciatica.  The other thing I remember being wonderful was being able to sleep on my stomach again.

I packed all of my maternity clothes away as soon as I came from the hospital. I didn’t eve want to look at them! I was so excited to be able to put on socks by myself and to sleep on my stomach, and to be (eventually) able to walk like a normal person. The first few days after delivery are tough-but nothing compared to 9 months of carrying a baby!

Cookie dough and a shake! I love baking and would always sneak in a few bites of cookie dough, I miss it so much! I’m due in December and I told my husband that we are stopping by a McDonald’s on the way home from the hospital so I can have an eggnog shake – Sounds SO good!

@Tisty1982: Oh yeah, cookie dough!  I always would sneak a few bites here and there, but not now.  And even if I was tempted, Darling Husband watches me like a hawk, because he’s seen me at my cookie-dough eating worst.

Beer.  I wanted beer so bad in my last trimester; it was my only request on our first post-baby shopping trip.

SLEEPING!  I know that won’t happen though!

Our anniversary is 10/20 due 10/9 I want so badly to go Carlton (Wine Country in Oregon) and go tasting with hubby. 

It’d be nice to be able to reach things on my own too.
