I miss: alcohol (not an alocoholic, but loved to unwind with a nice drink or beer with hubby at the end of a long day), caffeine, and feeling normal.

I am tired of my hips killing me lying in bed and having to roll from one side to the other, then finally having to move to a semi propped position on my back cuz I just can't take the pain anymore.

I also miss that I didn't get all my weight off before this baby. I had already lost 50 pounds and had about 30-40 to go.

Still eat feta cheese (never have found an unpasteurized version), still eat lunch meat, love love a big ole turkey sub with avocado.

Eating because I want to and am hungry, NOT because I feel like I'm going to literally fall over if I don't eat something RIGHT NOW.
Yeah, that's a huge one. I'd add to the falling over part "to keep myself from going on a homicidal rampage."

Sleeping through the night.

Margaritas.

My pants. I like some of my mat pants...but they're not -my- pants.

I -don't- miss my periods or PMS!

In addition to unpasteurized cheese, it is also recommended that pregnant women avoid mold-ripened soft cheeses (like brie) and blue-veined cheeses because they are good growth mediums for listeria spp. FWIW, I eat pretty much the same pregnant as when I'm not pregnant. I am not an especially cautious person and the risks feel kinda far-fetched.

I miss wine - I didn't drink it often but there have been a couple of times recently where I would have *really* enjoyed a big glass to unwind. And I miss my old pants - why are all maternity clothes (especially pants) ill-fitting and/or polyester? I always feel like I'm crawling out of my skin by the time I get home from work and change.

ETA: Feta is safe during pregnancy, assuming it's pasturized.
