sugarcloud :  I had my son is December and I was also looking forward to sleeping on my stomach! Be warned-if you breastfeed, it may be awhile before that can happen comfortably/at all. I breastfed for one week, but after that sleeping on my stomach was glorious! I was also surprised at how good it felt to not be pregnant even though I loved it!

Cold cut sandwich and our normal sex life back lol I actually don’t miss wine at all, which is odd.

Running (forbidden thanks to placenta previa), booze of all kinds, sushi/sashimi, foie gras, and a juicy medium rare steak.

When I was pregnant with my children, I was looking foward to getting a full nights rest. Lol…not gonna happen. My kids are 6 and 4 and I still don’t get un interrupted sleep.

   I’m 21 weeks so halfway there and I already have a list!! Sushi and beer- I will have both at the hospital! DH has already been told what to bring! I’m having a c section so I will be there for a few days and I am not waiting!

Also, to stop working- I’m not coming back from maternity leave- so that’s something I can’t wait for. To be able to spend time with the new baby and not be always so rushed with my 6 year old daughter. Leisure school drop offs I’m so looking forward to- maybe the baby and I can hang out at starbucks at 9am on a weekday!

Ugh, everything.  wine, a turkey sandwich, my body, not having to pee every two seconds.  I’m 28 weeks and so over this!

My baby is almost one. I had pre eclampsia so was pretty swollen.  Despite this, I was so sad to say goodbye to my belly. I LOVED being pregnant and  dressing my bump. In truth I can’t wait to experience it all again, I hope I will be so lucky next time!

My dad makes the most amazing Italian subs, full of lunch meat.  He made one for me soon after I gave birth because I’d been dying for one for so long.

Also I was nauseated my entire pregnancy and it was gone pretty much immediately after giving birth, which felt incredible.  But not being the size of a small planet was lovely too πŸ™‚

Not being so dang worried about everything. Woke up with my leg feeling funny – did I cut off circulation to the baby? etc. Hate this part, love being pregnant, can’t wait to meet the kid.

I’m 31 weeks and absolutely miserable. Looking forward to getting my body and energy back, being able to walk instead of waddle, sleeping on my back, wearing my normal clothes and shoes, not needing to be within ten minutes of a restroom… 

Also, my favorite things are charcuterie and soft French cheeses on crackers. I told him to make a platter to have ready for me in the delivery room, haha!
