sleep for more than 2-3 hours at a time w/out having to pee

Oh yeah...lots of what everyone else said...

I'd like to have sex without having to sit on an ice pack afterward.

I'd like to run -- go running, yes, but even just plain run to catch up to dd! :LOL

I'd like to smoke a joint. It'll be YEARS before that will happen again.

I'd like to get up from ANY position silently -- i.e., no grunting or panting. :

He, he. Great thread!

-Oh, to sleep on my stomach again!!!

-To run to the phone and answer it without being out of breath

-Not be grossed out by strong smells - especially shower curtains and the sponge in the kitchen. I can barely go near the compost pile these days.

-Eat a piece of fish or shellfish without being freaked out about mercury contamination

-Be able to snuggle with DS or DH without feeling like I'm going to roast to death

Otherwise, pregnancy is truly a magical journey.

Oh yeah, one more....I'd love to go through a day without complaining about some aching body part!

I'd like to hold my daughter in my lap and practice (I mean REALLY practice) yoga. Not at the same time, of course. Even un-pregnant, I can't do that! :LOL

I love hearing other people say the things I'm going through. Not that I'm happy you womyn are unhappy too, but sometimes I feel like I'm making a bigger deal out of things than I should be! It is reassuring to hear that it is not just me.
I miss making love to my dh in a way that doesn't feel awkward.
I miss carrying/wearing my toddler.
I want to dig in the garden for more than five minutes without feeling a head rush.
Really scrub the shower the way I want it - especially now :LOL
I miss having energy to do all the cleaning that I want to do before this baby comes.

I truly don't mean to be complaining about any of these things as I am so grateful to be making this baby every day. But sometimes it is hard! Harder than I remember.

Ah..this too shall pass and I'll miss it

I'm basically homebound on partial bedrest, and I just wish I could go to the park with my son, get out and feel the warm weather and fresh air, or have sex at all! :LOL Hanging out at home, mostly horizontal in bed, really sucks after 6 weeks of it.....

<<Really scrub the shower the way I want it - especially now >>

I got this one figured out. I bought a new grout/tile brush and I just use a little shampoo to scrub for a minute or two every time I'm in the shower. It really works!
