In an effort to be ok with the fact that this baby is not looking like it will born any time soon (I'm at 40 + 1 today) I am hoping that you can remind me of some of the things that I will miss once the baby is born.

Although this is my 3rd time around I'm still having trouble remembering all the changes that a little baby brings.

I miss:

sleep
regular showers
regular meals (babes want to nurse at my usual mealtimes)
sleep
leaving the house (don't want to expose my tiny babies just yet)
being caught up on laundry
sleep


Oh, and did I mention sleep?

Oh Yeah! I forgot about the sitting and walking thing. Ouch!! Sorry Mamas.

Also, it seems that sleep seems to be on the top (and middle and bottom) of everyone's list.

I'm definitely going to be thankful for the ability to walk, wipe after I pee, sit comfortably, sleep and take quick trips to the store until this little one is here. Thanks for the reminders Mamas!
