To not wake up from pain every time I roll over at night irked.gif

 

At this point, I could probably write a book length post with "I can't wait..." ideas.

Ooooh, I second the longsleeve shirts!  I also can't wait for my face to not be fat anymore, and to be able to do more than stand up or sit down without getting winded!!

 

And, I can't wait to meet this little booger.

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.

I can't wait to not have to tell DS "mommy is too tired/hot/big" every time he wants to play or climb on me. 

 

I can't wait to have non-pregnant sex again.

 

I can't wait to start running again.

 

Really, I just can't wait to NOT BE PREGNANT.

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. orngbiggrin.gif

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

I just want to breathe again. And not have the most severe anxiety over the health of this baby. Though that will never go away, especially since I worry about my kids constantly!

yeahthat.gif 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!

Give Birth and let everyone know we did it unassisted!

She who she looks like

Carry her around in a sling

See how the dogs react to her (they are both my "babies" but they also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE babies and kids)

Sleep in any position I wish

Walk up the 3 flights of stairs to our apt without feeling like I'm going to die.

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!

Definitely laying on my belly. And the non pregnant sex. Though I am slightly apprehensive about how it will feel afterwards. I can't help thinking there will be some sort of change anyway.

Ooh, so many of the things you all said. I am really excited to have this baby here, and to be able to take care of him and DD and not feel tired/uncomfortable/lazy all the time. I am excited to be thinner, and all that comes with it (getting out of bed easily, not needing to sleep with a special wedge under my belly, sex in more than one of three positions, wearing normal clothes... I'm really excited for wearing normal clothes.)


Girl absolutely in love with boy and our DD (11/06), DS1 (08/11) and DS2 (brand new!)

To have sex on my stomach.

 

To be able to get up from sitting or lying down with out it seeming like a herculean task.

 

To be able to poop normally.

I waited about 7 weeks after my DD and it was AMAZING. You don't have to wait that long, we just didn't get a chance until then. You will probably want to take it slow at first though. It wasn't painful at all for me.

Forgot to add mine!

 

The biggest thing I can't wait for is to know the gender! I'm so close and I can't stand the suspense anymore.

After dd, we had sex at 5 weeks pp and it was fantastic. No pain at all! After ds, we did it at 2.5 weeks pp and while it didn't hurt, it didn't feel quite right either. I am thinking DH is going to have to hold his horses a bit this time around!

Oh, yeah!  I can't wait to nurse this little one!

 

And, find out the gender FINALLY!

 

I'm 38.3 weeks, and the suspense is killing me.  I was even thinking about going to get an u/s NOW to find out!  How silly would that be, to make it this far and then cave ROTFLMAO.gif

 

I'm really really ready to have this baby.
