I can't wait to . . .

be able to lie on my stomach!!!

Heck, I may even do that after my first hour of snuggling my sweet little babe. The moment I hand him over to the nurse to weigh and measure, I may throw myself on the bed tummy down!

What are you looking forward to? (Other than staring, lovestruck, at your baby for hours on end.)

I can't wait to be able to bend at the waist! I miss that SO much.

... lie flat on my back!

I'm sure there's other stuff, but that one's killing me at the moment.

All of the above! I miss being able to sleep in a variety of positions. I just roll (slowly) from one side to the other. My hips are killing me.

And can I say this? I miss s-e-x.

Amen Ary, what is up with the hurting hips? I can't sleep on my back, can't sleep on my stomach and now whatever hip I sleep on is KILLING me in an hour and I have to switch sides...how am I supposed to sleep? Standing up?

Oh yeah, the hips have got it. By morning my hips are aching so much that I can't lay on either side so, despite being exhausted and needing to sleep more, I have to get up just to make the pain end. It'll be nice to have that go away too.

I miss being able to have sex without saying, "I'm sorry, I can't breathe in this position."

Oh! Glad to know I'm not alone with the hips thing...although, I'm sorry you're all suffering too.

I totally finished this sentence of your title without even opening it...with sleeping on my stomach!! I felt like that last time too, I seriously fantasized about it like it was sex...I couldn't stop thinking about it, even at work. This time I'm not quite as obsessed because I know it will probably take a few weeks...I didn't factor in sore, leaky breasts being a hindrance to tummy sleeping too. The first few weeks if I laid on my stomach, whoa! look out, milk machine.

oh, and sometimes my best sleep for achy hips is on the sofa...something about that extra support behind my back is really nice.

i was actually thinking about the stomach sleeping just a few days ago!! full breasts will get in the way but dang its not nearly as bad as a basketball under you!!

i am having horrendous hip pain too. going to physical therapy/massage for it even.

what they do is massage my right hip (this one is the "bad" one that slips foward which misaligns me). You guys might try having your DP's massage the point where the hip and spine come together....that pointy bone on both sides of the hips on the back (you know what i am talking about??). she uses a massage cream (i am sure anything that provides friction will work but you might try icy hot or similar heating stuff). she does it pretty hard to really get down to the bones and muscles so your dp's can use their muscles. THEN lay on your back (i know OUCH!!) drape a leg over the edge of the bed (or whatever) have DP stand on the end and put your foot on their shoulder and push for 6ish seconds (they provide counter pressure). she only has to do this once or twice for me and then my hips are aligned again. she "measures" this by putting a finger on each side of my hips while on my back. if they are parrallel then its good if not do it again.

i hope thats explanation enough if not you can pm me or just post here.

either way its a free massage!!!

BTW even getting this from a "proffessional" it only lasts me a few days. not as great as a chiro (which i HIGHLY recomend) but P.T. is paid 100% by my insurance and chiro isn't at all.

Believe it or not - this pg is the most comfortable for sleeping for me. With the previous three, I was on the couch at nights by now. Weird. The thing that is really hurting is the pain in my leg/hip joints. It kills me to get up from any sitting or laying position. It hurt in previous pregnancies, but not like this. Ouch.

I miss bending, and being able to take a few steps without losing my breath, and seeing my ankles, and sleeping comfortably, and being able to eat or drink after 7pm without being up all night with reflux or gas pressure in my chest! Oy! I sort of hate to complain, though, considering that all of my little issues are really manageable and there are so many women who really suffer with their pregnancies. I do love being pregnant, but now I'm finally starting to look forward to feeling like I own my body again!

Oh man...

I miss bending over without making 'old man noises', sleeping more than an hour or so at a time, rolling over without a production, and having a glass of wine...
post #15 of 27
*lol* at "old man noises"! I hear ya! "Oof" is a part of my daily vocabulary!

I miss sex. Last time we did the deed, it was so uncomfortable that I haven't entertained the idea since. Weeks and weeks ago. Ack.
post #16 of 27
Yeah, sex is getting interesting. We did it for the first time in a couple of weeks over this past weekend, and it was like my husband was trying to get it on with a turtle.

OMG, this thread is hilarious!!! laughup I don't really have anything more to add... completely agree w/ it all... the hip pain, sleeping positions, sex... what would I do w/o the DCC & you women who understand exactly what it's like?!
post #18 of 27
Oh, my kingdom to be able to lie flat on my back without a crushing weight on top of me. And beer! With alcohol! I know it's supposedly safe to have just the one glass of wine or A beer, but I've never been able to get past that hang up, so I stick to the non alcoholic stuff and ugh. Beer flavored water. How immature am I, that all I want is a beer with alcohol???

And lol at sex with a turtle.

this made me laugh so hard the baby kicked my ribs.

i can't wait to have sex and be on the bottom without my df being, like three feet away from me.

oh yeah, and the hip pain and sleep deprivation sucks too.

i want:

a good night's sleep, in ANY position
to go more than 20 minutes without peeing
one day without a headache or heartburn
to go back to work (really!)
to feel sexy
to eat sushi

that all sounds so shallow to me, though. mostly what i want is to meet him, hear his voice, hold him, feed him, and cuddle him. all the rest can come later.

oh, and an illegal cigarette. droooool. :
