Oddly enough, I don't mix sex at all-- possibly because I know it's what landed me in this predicament.

I seem to get pregnant very easily, so pregnancy is the only time I enjoy sex knowing that I can't get re-pregnant.

OK, but here's what I don't understand-- my husband can't manage to get two socks from a pair down the laundry chute, but he hits two eggs in one shot? I'm afraid to ever have sex again!

Hm... sex is one thing that definitely hasn't changed in frequency for us yet. That was actually DH's second question when I told him we were pregnant: "when do we have to stop having sex?" He was pretty relieved when I said, not until my water breaks. I think both of us are anticipating that early postpartum recovery period, and trying to get it all in before then. Though I concur that I would like a few more options in the positions available.

post #27 of 41
I miss:

*my ankles
*picking up dd for a hug (she's 6.5)
*not falling asleep while putting dd to bed (so I can actually get something acomplished in our house!)
*vinyasa yoga (which is I know quite possible, but I choose not to practice this form of yoga while pregnant or during my moon phase)
*dp driving home after a night with friends (i'm suddenly the dd all the time and miss falling asleep in the passenger seat!)

I am so missing...

My libido!! It's just gone, vanished, POOF!
Wine
As much coffee as I want!
A good beer.
Gardening. The pregnancy has made me uber heat sensitive.
Getting in and out of my car without feeling like I need a crane to pull me out.

Funny, thanks for reminding me wholebreath!!

I miss my wonderful level of tolerance for those less intelligent than me (not being arrogant here!!). I work with the general public (labor, delivery, postpartum, lactation) and whoooo I don't know, must be my hormones and pregnancy but people are driving me crazy!! I've considered seriously switching careers. I've been joking that the local trailer park went into labor if you get my drift!

Not being so irritable!!!

I miss my DH right now... he's 'out in the field' (training on base but not allowed to come home at night) for the whole week and I'm so lonely after just one day. I seriously don't know how I'm going to survive being alone for a month while he's training in California!! At least I have my parents to go back to when he deploys.


Oh and to top it all off he'll still be in training when I reach the big 38 and 39 weeks! Sure I'll probably end up going into labor after 40 weeks anyway but I'm going to need one of those old people necklaces in case I get in the tub/bed/couch and can't get back out. At least I have my doula.

You are cracking me up

I have been avoiding this thread because I've been so cranky and was afraid I'd go on a tirade of things I hate about being pregnant. Usually I enjoy it. For the most part.
  1. Being able to roll over in bed without having to take a break halfway through to catch my breath
  2. Being able to pick up something that I've dropped without having to get down on my hands and knees...I used to be able to *bend over*
  3. Having a glass of wine or a mixed drink with DH every once in a while
  4. Being able to go out for a late movie without feeling like I'm going to fall asleep halfway through it
  5. Eating anything remotely sugary without feeling woozy

• sex: I don't miss it only b/c it's pretty uncomfortable (bordering on painful) now. All I can assume is that the weight/size of my uterus is altering the shape/size of my vagina. (Un?)fortunately, my husband's not turned off by DTD with a preggo.

• wine: I've read in various places that it's okay to drink an occasional glass of red here and there. True, no? I'm not a big wine drinker but anytime I crave it or coffee, I'll take a couple sips of my husband's.

I have hip/back alignment issues so I can't be flat on my back. I've figured out how to position my feet under me, lift my butt, and flop over to the other side. Instead of rolling over I'm flipping myself over, lol.

Having enough energy to be a decent/fun mom to my kids I feel like a failure lately.

Ugh, I hear ya. I feel that way, too. I want to be Fun Mom but instead I am Sit On The Couch And Sometimes Consent To Reading A Story Because It Requires Very Little Energy Mom. I don't want to take the kids out to the playground because it's so darn hot and our closest playground doesn't have a bench, so I have to stand or sit in the grass. (And you know I'd never get back up again if I did that.) It really stinks...I keep thinking that right now they are creating memories of me lounging around being miserable while they're desperate to play.

I guess it's good that they have a lot of siblings because otherwise the poor guys would be bored out of their little minds.

Edited to add to the original list of things I miss:

Getting sick and being able to take medication for it! Nothing I CAN take (i.e. am not allergic to) is safe during pregnancy.

Along that vein: Getting sick to my stomach without worrying that there's something wrong with the baby. Right now my stomach and womb are squished so close together that sometimes it's hard to tell which part hurts.

  • having clothes that actually cover me up and don't suffocate me
  • being able to shave my legs without fear of mortal injury
  • being able to hold my baby without being in pain
  • wearing more than one extremely comfy pair of shoes that doesn't match any outfit I own...I have so many cute shoes but they all hurt my feet!
post #40 of 41
wearing pants that stay on my ass. seriously, these maternity jeans may be the end of me. i need to get some nice black yoga pants or something so I look decent enough to leave the house, but feel like I'm in my jammies.

Being able to spend a day on my feet canning without getting loads of wicked contractions and super sore feet/back! I have work to do baby, I can't spend *every* day taking it easy!
