I won't miss the feeling of the baby's head slamming against my cervix like a jackhammer every time I cough.  Darnit, I caught my kids' coughs.

Remind me, is this your first pregnancy? If so, and you decide to have more children, trust me you get more "ballsy" with the second one. I have no qualms about grabbing someone's hand and saying, "Please don't." or stepping backwards a step or two.

 Nope, it's my third viable. And more people want to touch my stomach because of the fact that I am pregnant with twins. I've even had sneak attacks from the back. I usually do grab hands or say no when I can see it coming, but other times I am caugt off guard ESPECIALLY by strangers that feel it's okay to molest me, that I have a loss of speech for a bit.

I appreciate the 'bitch' session. Sometimes it's so cathartic. I won't miss people from all across the parenting theory spectrum advising my husband and I. 

"Have you decided on vaccines/circumcision/ birth intervention?"

"Yes, I appreciate your concern, but we made up our mind and we would prefer not to discuss it."



"Wow, thanks, we'll keep that in mind." 


And oh boy, I was the most kale/oat/soy milk lovin generally healthy person I knew until I got so sick.(hyperemesis) Then whatever I could keep down became king. I lived on a box of bagel bites and a red gatorade each day. ew wtf? :)

I won't miss peeing my pants and having a big loogie on the TP when I wipe.  It is so gross that I HAVE to change my underware a few times a day!  I am also not able to sleep well anymore.  and to top it off I am trying to get DD to sleep without a pull up on and she wakes up in the middle of the night to come to bed with me because big daddy is out of town.  So I have to actually get up and take her to the bathroom, sit her on the toilet (Because she isn't really awake) and hold her there because she is worried about falling in. (no problems during the day tho.) and then she wants me to snuggle her.  I really like snuggling but she wants to do it a certain way and it is almost never comfortable for me so I have to wait till she falls asleep and then adjust... then I get feet in my back... why oh why is it that I have a king size bed and a 3 year old and an adult in it and I am getting kicked half the night?????!?!?!?!?!  ok rant over.

I sure won't miss...

yeah, back pain

waking up at three am for a snack

peeing constantly

super low blood pressure so that I almost pass out if I turn around too fast (or stand up...)

swollen ankles after a day working

wearing sweat pants all the time

no coffee or espresso


But. In all fairness....I love being pregnant. I wanted this for SO long. I have no complaints, really...this is the happiest I have ever been.

(Sorry to be corny, but it's true!)

A few things-mostly mentioned by others.


*Peeing all the time, but not much sometimes-annoying!

*Bending down to hook 3 dogs up to leashes & walking them. Is fine w/o the belly n the way.

*Alcohol!!! So I've had a few sips when hubby drinks but that's all. Oh how I could go for some wine-yum!

*Going up/down stairs & getting out of breath. We have 3 flights in our condo.

*Can't wait to just stand & do something w/o feeling like I need to take a rest.

*Swollen feet-only one is bad & just started.
