Losing weight and being able to take whatever medications I want when I'm sick!

No more gagging in the mornings! And a bit more time between bathroom visits (hopefully). And no more back and hip pain... I hope.

(But overall I can't complain. All of those are minor things.)

You're not eating fish? Why?

Right now I'm looking forward to enjoying a small glass of wine while I stuff and fold cloth diapers. Ha!
I have no doubt that Aiden is *really* looking forward to me being able to bend over without pain and get on the floor with him to play the way he wants to play!
Really can't wait to say good bye to heart burn!!!!

Can't wait to lose weight and feel motivated- I feel so self conscious/ugh about myself right now
Want to go lay in a tanning bed (haha so stupid, I'm pretty sure I have SADD and could really use like 5 minutes of light right now!)
To lay on my back/sit down w/o having my lungs crushed and not being able to breathe
To eat w/o having massive acid reflux haha
Not be in pain!! My rib is being SOOO tortured!!!

I feel guilty, im drinking coffee and eat deli meats

Oh and Erin- I hear ya on the wiping- haha- umm WAY TMI BUT- I feel like my .. uh.. rear.. has grown so big that it's harder to wipe, I honestly take a shower almost everytime I "go to the bathroom" to make sure I'm cleaned. hahahaha. its sad.

yea, i know i'm being overly cautious - i've even read in the pregnancy books and websites what fishes i can eat and all of that, but for some reason it just still worries me, i know i could be measuring it out and all... i figure i've come this far without it so i'll just go the rest of the way and enjoy the hell out of it on Christmas Eve! (well before Christmas eve too but my Mom makes the best fish dinners for christmas eve lol)

let's see:
*walking without getting out of breath
*being able to sit on a couch and feel comfortable rather than stuffed to the gills
*sleeping again (oh wait...)
*yes, losing weight (although it was hard for me the first time)
*not having to take zantac and tums all the time!

but honestly, i am still happy to be pregnant in some ways. i like having the little guy inside me and moving around. i like the sensations. i do feel sad because i have not paid as much attention to his movements like i did with my first.
