Things I’ll miss about pregnancy:
-Being amazed by what your body is capable of.
-Discovering a variety of caffeine free sodas and drinks.
-Eating pretty much whatever you want.
-The excitement shared by everyone you meet, your spouse, and family.
-Imagining what your baby will look like.
-Guessing games-the baby’s sex, due date, etc.
-An excuse to stay in and nap sometimes.
-Not needing an alcoholic beverage or super caffeinated beverage because you are used to declining them.
What I’m looking forward to:
-Having a satisfying pee. If you’ve been pregnant, you know what I mean.
-Being able to see your baby and not wonder why they are so quiet on the inside sometimes.
-Finding out my baby’s personality and seeing how much hair they have (I can’t wait..)
-Having more energy.
-Being able to do more physical things without worrying about the baby (lifting, turning patients at work, changing positions).
-A glass of red wine.
-Drinking the french roast sometimes.
-Baby milestones and mommy milestones (getting back to normalish bodywise).
-Eating sushi again (will have to see breastfeeding rules..).
-Having your bowels work more normally.
-Being able to hold and kiss your baby.
-Getting to use all the baby equipment, clothes, and toys you have collected.
-Getting to relive your childhood in many ways.
6 weeks is a long time to wait but I will enjoy Christmas with my family, alone time with my husband, nesting, and the perks of being an 8.5-9 month pregnant lady. There is no time like the present.
