What are you looking forward to?
I can't wait to wear all my long sleeve nursing tops! Bring on the cooler weather!
Basically almost everything you all said. I'm done with this. I also can't wait to be 'me' again, instead of this crazy emotional exhausted mess.
I can't wait to be able to lean forward again and tie my shoes or scan the road for approaching vehicles without encountering a major impediment (belly). I also can't wait to eat whatever I want without having to explain to people that yes, I can eat cold cuts/soft cheese/seafood etc. And more long-term, I can't wait to have a Bloody Mary for brunch (3+ years of being pregnant and breastfeeding have made me want one really badly) and to sleep through the night.
Oh boy, I could write a novel!!
But mostly...I can't wait to :
not be in pain.
stop worrying about this baby's health. I just want to KNOW what I'm going to be dealing with.
button my pants! Something so foreign now about buttons on jeans. I'm so used to just hiking up mat pants with elastic. It will feel so nice to button jeans!!
exercise at full steam again!!
drink soda, wine, beer, and margaritas. Eat junk and not worry about my platelets!!
Though -- I'm not ready for colder weather. I'm a summer person and have really been enjoying the sun and playing outside and stroller walks! I'm just not ready to let go of summer fun yet.
I can't wait to lay on my belly to get a back massage or sleep
To stop peeing every 5 minutes
To drink coffee (quit because baby has a heart arrhythmia) and wine
For my daughter to be able to climb in my lap and cuddle without the belly being in the way
For the fear of having another sick baby to be over and done with
Yes yes! To all of these!!!
to almost everything above! I, too could write all day about the things I am excited about for when this pregnancy is over. Here are some big ones:
Just having my body back to myself, and feeling somewhat normal again
Being able to run around, jump up and down, do a handstand if I want to
Sleeping on my stomach
BEER!!!!! (I am a huge craft beer geek)
Sticking the baby in the moby wrap on DH so HE can carry her around too!
Loosing the extra weight, no matter how long it takes
And of course: Meeting our first baby!
I also can't wait to find out the gender. I can't wait to hold the babe and snuggle close, to see what s/he looks like. I can't wait to have my ENERGY back! I look forward to having the whole labor process behind me. I look forward to going on walks and walking off some of the extra pounds.
I'm not a happy pregnant chick, so there's a lot I can't wait for!
I can't wait to be able to get out of bed without feeling like a turtle flipped over on its shell.
I can't wait to lay on my belly again.
I really can't wait to share a whole bottle of wine with DH!
But what I am most excited about is experiencing how powerful my body is when I give birth and then getting to meet my little guy!
