Not being tired all the time

post #10 of 24

-Being able to do intense, strenuous exercise...  It helped my mood so much!

-No back pain!

-Feeling sexy & like having sex...  I was good to go still until the third trimester, now the thought is like UGH, especially with the contractions I've been having.

post #13 of 24

1. My appetite and the "normal" taste in my mouth after I eat.

2. A non-pain-filled pelvis

3.  Feeling like a good mom to my 3 YO DS.  I'm so tired and uncomfortable and in varying degrees of nausea all the time.  I feel bad telling him "no" constantly when he wants me to play with him.

Let me add, also, being able to go out in the sun for more than 10 minutes.  I overheat and my eyes can't handle it!

post #15 of 24

1. Sleep. Any of it.
2. The ability to take Advil. Tylenol is worthless for my spinal pain.
3. My ankles.

post #16 of 24

1. Runny eggs

2. Summertime mojitos

3. Sleeping on my back and stomach

post #17 of 24

I just have to say I still eat runny eggs here and there.


1. Comfortable sex during and feeling comfortable after


2. Sleeping on stomach


3. Feeling comfortable in clothes. I have to buy my maternity clothes used and its hard to find a good fit and or exactly what I want to wear, especially bottoms.

At this point I am loving days when I don't have to go anywhere because then I can just stay in PJs.

post #18 of 24

There have been a few times when I've wanted to eat some anyway (and believe me, I've snuck some raw cookie dough!), but my partner always tsks and makes me feel bad and then I go ahead and scramble them instead. GRAR.

post #19 of 24

I eat two runny poached eggs almost every single morning and have during this whole pregnancy.  I didn't get any this morning and just asked DH to make me some now, in the afternoon (I consider myself to be a good cook, but for some reason I can't poach eggs right! He always cooks them perfectly for me).  He keeps joking that he hopes baby doesn't come out "undercooked" because of this.


As for what I miss, lately it has been my belly button!  It's completely flat right now!

and Aleve for pain; Tylenol doesn't help me at all!

post #20 of 24

1. I miss exercising and being active. Its just been too painful for me this whole pregnancy. I still clean houses for work so I am somewhat active, but its not the same thing as a good run.

2. Comfortable sex. Its too much work these days for not much orgasm anyway. I miss being on the bottom and getting a good f*cking (hope that is not offensive to anyone, just being honest).

3. Tequila.
