Things I will not miss once this baby is born......

My number one is Heartburn, how I look forward to eating, drinking and laying down without getting heartburn. Of course next is just the general discomfort.

What will you not miss?

I can't wait until I can put my shoes on without pain/discomfort! Sounds silly but it'll be sooo nice to bed over!

Heartburn, vomiting and nausea, excruciating hip and joint pain, and getting short of breath quickly. I can't wait to feel back to normal.

Gestational diabetes and well meaning people offering me food that I can't eat.

But I'm going to miss the belly and the kicking and the knowing I'm growing a human so much it already makes me sad. I guess that's the downside of knowing it's my last pregnancy.

I won't miss being suffocated every time I lay down to go to sleep or even just lean when I sit on the couch. I also won't miss the hip pains I've been having!

Once the pregnancy is over, I'll be sad to get a period again LOL!

I won't miss:
- Having to tell my 3 year old daughter that I can't pick her up because it's too uncomfortable (or when I give in and do pick her up, having to set her down 5 seconds later).
- The terrible burning ligament pain that occurs on my lower left groin about a hundred times a day.
- Waking up to pee 3 times a night and then being unable to fall back asleep half those times.
- Random hip and back pains.

Can you tell I'm looking forward to getting this baby out of my belly and into my arms!? Smile :)

I won't miss the heartburn,shortness of breath,not being able to tie shoes, and frequent trips to the bathroom. Not to mention I am ready to cut loose my new dance partner (referring to the IV pole), late night/early morning vital checks. I am ready to check out of the Memorial Hermann Antepartum and Post partum pavillions.

I am looking forward to not having the extra weight and bulkiness to carry around, but I'm already a little sad that I don't have enough hands for all my little guys to hold and adding the new one will make it that much harder. I am really hoping that we will still be able to all smush together on the couch for stories before bed because that hour of holding and talking and being with my guys is one of the highlights of my days and if the baby is demanding or difficult at that time I am going to be really sad... Hoping to be able to read and nurse at the same time... or hoping the baby likes listening to long stories.

I won't miss the sore, aching back - the fact that I can't hold/carry DS without being in pain - the difficulty playing with DS - the challenge of putting on socks and shoes - the annoyance of maternity pants that won't stay up - the waking up in the middle of the night uncomfortable and sore and the whole 'hoopla' of rearranging the multitude of pillows I now sleep with to try and be moderately comfortable -
and taking a bath and having the belly stick out of the water getting cold!! Wink

Uhhhhh most of the above? HAHA! Constant peeing day & night, out of breath, not able to bend over (not strange at all, Megan!!), sore muscles, sciatica, overall joint pain, painful water retention in my feet/legs, insomnia countered by fatigue at inconvenient times, difficulty fitting into a public restroom stall, generally feeling like a whale, nightmares, excessive hormone waves... I could go on for a while. I'm grateful to not have the pre-e scares and GD that so many of my friends and family have dealt with.

Knowing this is my last pregnancy, I am a little sad to know the parts I know/love about pregnancy (there are a few, despite the list above) will be gone permanently... I'm really looking forward to the closeness and bonding of nursing and holding a tiny little baby again... Smile

OMG! The bathroom stalls!!! It's worse for me because Lexi refuses to go into the stalls without me (which isn't always a bad thing) but we are having a really hard time fitting both of us in the stall right now and she doesn't like the big stalls so we squeeze into the stall!

NIGHTMARES! I'm so glad I'm not the only one! Hmmm...I might go start a new thread.

I agree that it's really sad knowing this is my last pregnancy (well...supposed to be my last but we'll see)

Lol ok, the not fitting into bathroom stalls too!! In fact, I tried to squeeze past my co-worker at church the other day and she told me that I was getting too big to do that! Haha

I want to say for one, and especially I think cuz I'm a FTM, I love being pregnant and experiencing everything. But, I will not miss the hip pain whether I'm laying down or standing up, the rib pain, the constant feeling of needing to pee, the full feeling in my uterus that makes me walk like an old person, and the terrible congestion!!! Phew, it was nice to get it out here, cuz when I tell my DH he just doesnt understand all that well!

I learned a new one last night that I can't wait to get rid of...the fact I have to depend on DH so much to do things for me!!! I can barely lift anything/anyone without then having a lot of pains down there and sometimes it's followed by cramps/contractions. DH wasn't off work yet so I lift DD2 into her high chair (usually she sits in DH's spot when he's not home, but I thought he'd be home soon) and after I did that I had to waddle bent over to get my plate. She's only just over 25lbs too! Then that night I went to a new grocery store just to get juice and milk and apparently to use their carts you have to pay a quarter and when you return the cart you get your quarter back. Well I didn't have a quarter so I used a basket...not smart when you put in 5 gallons of liquid in it. After I checked out a lady gave me a cart to take to the car. Anyway, since then I've been in pain down there.

So I will be happy when I don't have to rely on DH to lift everything for me or get the stuff on the top shelf (I can climb lol) or try and fit in the laundry room between his gear and the washer and drying. Oh and trying to bend into the dryer to get the rest of the clothes. Lol I feel so miserable this pregnancy, yet it still makes me want to have a 4th one later on lol.

Wearing pants that I have to pull up all the time. I wear jeans when I go out and then change into comfy pants at home. Looking forward to wearing regular clothes (though I am sure it will be awhile after the baby is born till I fit but it is something to look forward to).

Yes! These are the best. I have two, and I no longer care that I pretty much wear only those, even to work, every day.

As for what I won't miss, same as others above:
1. peeing all the time
2. difficulty sleeping
3. bizarro leg cramps (toes, foot, shins, calves, thighs)
4. shortness of breath
5. not being able to run around with my 3 yo

I will not miss this horrid blue dress -- seems to be the only thing I can wear during this pregnancy, even my ginormous preggo pants annoy me!

I will not miss:

Feeling like a whale
Not being able to bend over
Headaches
That feeling every time I eat where it feels like the food is backed up to my throat
The non-stop feeling of needing to pee, and then it only be a few drops when I go
The stinky-ness. I feel like my girly bits are stinky
The swollen ankles
The extreme fatigue
I could go on and on, I'm sure.
