It's the simple things... - Page 2

post #21 of 28

absolutely agree with all of the above, with a few specific causes being near and dear to my heart:

 

reclining without guilt

bending and moving without pain

no more comments on my swollen feet/ankles, the size of my belly, how tired I look, and what I should/shouldn't be doing

enjoyable sex

beer

Yes, yes, yes to so many of these!

As for me, a good ol' eggnog latte is my simple thing...

So many of these are true for me, too, ladies...

 

Sleeping (yes, I know the actual sleeping is probably a distant dream) in bed without pain is a big one right now...and getting rid of those extra pillows.

Bye bye to heartburn.

Having DS fit on my lap comfortably for both of us, and being able to play on the floor with him again.

Cold weather means spiked hot cocoa and hot toddies....mmmmm....

Eating whatever I want.

Wardrobe expansion...I, too, am down to the few pairs of pants and capris that have elastic waists (buttons, snaps, hooks, etc. are not cutting it)...and the same T-shirts and long-sleeve shirts day after day after day after day....I do remember that it took about 4 months last time before I could get into my pre-pregnancy pants...but I should at least be able to start wearing some of my no-longer-fitting maternity pants right away.

I have a very prosaic one... Having my normal bowel movements back! I know, TMI, but how pleasant to no longer have to deal with either constipation or wayward cases of the runs. lol.gif

Iris, not TMI. I'm right there with you.

Ok, those of you who are on "the other side", what have you been enjoying PP??  Give hope to those of us still peeing the bed and unable to fit behind the steering wheel!!

The hemmroids went away the moment I gave birth. Like MAGIC!!
Heartburn is almost gone.
Baby belly is gone, just extra skin now, I'm under pre-pg weight.
AND I have a beautiful baby.

You're gonna like it!

I had my ankles back at 24 hours pp!  They'd been missing for a month!

 

I'm wearing regular shirts, just like I always dreamed about.
