sugarcloud :  I’m only 6 months post partum but forgot how nice it was to finally sleep on my stomach. I’m still EBF plus solids and have been sleeping on my stomach since 8 weeks PP (thanks to a c-section).

I’m also only starting to work out now. Good on you for all you ambitious ladies but don’t beat yourself up if you timeline changes once your LO is here! ๐Ÿ™‚

With baby #1 all I wanted was ham and egg sandwiches, with baby #2 I just wanted to mainline sugar after being diagnosed with GD at 28 weeks.

I am due tomorrow (although I don’t think LO will be arriving on time ๐Ÿ˜ข) but I absolutely cannot wait to have a cold cut sub too! I’m also excited just to have my body back to “normal”… This bump makes basic things like getting dressed or standing long periods of time (hello swollen extremities!) really difficult! But mostly I am excited to meet our little baby and start our new journey as a family of 3 ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hot tubs and sleeping on my back! I didn’t really eat any of the no-no foods before or drink alcohol, so I’ve been eating normally my whole pregnancy (due August 1).

MeandYou :  I didn’t have pre-e, but I was so swollen (feet and legs mostly) people couldn’t believe I didn’t. I made it worse because I’m a teacher and had a hard time forcing myself to sit towards the end lol. Eventually, I just told my students to come to me because I wasn’t moving. Even with that (and the awful sciatic pain), I loved being pregnant too. DH and I don’t know if we want another baby, so that may have been my only pregnancy!

sugarcloud :  Yes it is (at least for me). I miscarried my first baby, so I tried to enjoy all the good parts. The kicks and rolls were the best part. But, having him on the outside laughing, screaming ( in excitement), smiling is the best.
