I still have almost 14 weeks to go, but can’t wait to sleep on my back and stomach and feel less clumsy! I’m looking forward to a break from work, even though I know I’ll be exhausted caring for a newborn. I also can’t wait to eat a (nonheated) deli sandwich and raw sushi!

I’m due August 3rd. Besides being soooo excited to meet my baby, I can’t wait to eat a cold turkey sandwich (already planning on having one for my first meal after delivery) and ride horses regularly! What’s your due date?

A big glass of wine (ok probably a normal sized glass for awhile) and having my normal energy level back.  Some days I could really use a big glass of wine after dealing with toddler meltdowns

A glass of wine! And a cold cut sandwich that I did not have to heat the meat for. And no more heartburn, or nausea in general. I’m just ready to have my body back… 11 more weeks!

Hopefully it’s okay for me to chime in (last time I gave birth was almost 7 years ago but I remember this so clearly). I was looking forward to being able to sleep however I want to and to not feel so ‘heavy’ and to just get my damn body back.  Then they were born and I was looking forward to the day they were more independent/could use the bathroom on their own/dress themselves/do homework on their own, etc.   so right now, I am LOVING this stage right here.

Sushi, wine, beer, no heartburn, no shortness of breath, and of course… meeting our little man ๐Ÿ™‚

I still have 15 weeks to go, so I’m trying not to think about any of these things too much, haha. Just spent the weekend in Montreal for a bachelorette party, and having to skip out on half the food/activities was a pretty big bummer.

All the food!  Mostly sushi and deli sandwhiches.  And not being paranoid if I’m at a friend’s house or BBQ if the food was handled properly.  I swear I even side eye my husband in the kitchen….
