Ok a couple of things that are like "instant gratification" for giving birth (besides the baby)<br><br>
1. Being able to wash my hands without hunching over so far my back breaks.<br><br>
2. Being able to get clothes out of the washer without hunching over so far my back breaks.<br><br>
3. Getting clothes out of the dryer without squishing my baby between the ribcage and the legs.<br><br>
4. After a few weeks: weightlifting! woooooooot!<br><br>
What are you looking forward to?

WINE. I've had a half glass here and there during this pregnancy, and don't plan to down a bottle as soon as the cord is cut, but OH wine, how I miss thee. oh, and being able to eat sugar and fat again (I hate you slacker pancreas and gallbladder!)<br><br>
So basically, I want a meal of bacon, ice cream and wine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I say no to ice cream and wine.<br><br>
But bacon...<br><br>
And cabernet? mMMMMMmmmMMMMmm<br><br><br>
I wonder how many hardcore wino's there are on MDC. I need a tribe, I dont know anyone IRL who drinks wine. (Like I do-I am getting a good base knowlege under my belt....it takes ALOT of time though!!!)

I want to buy a new pair of size four (or even six or eight) jeans. I want to put the five-gallon jug on the water cooler at work without having to wait for the production guy to do it for me. I'd really enjoy a glass of wine with dinner or a margarita at sunset. I want to stop making those weird little grunting noises every time I sit down or stand up.<br>
But overall, I like being pregnant. I'm not in a rush for the baby to make his debut. He has another month left to finish cooking, and that's fine by me.

Honestly? I'm looking forward to the spinal for the C/S because I'm in so d*mn much pain from sciatica!<br><br>
And I'm *really* looking forward to a bottle of beer I brought home from Germany this summer. I could only sip and not really partake, so there is a bottle of Andescher Dunkel in my fridge from a monastery in Bavaria that's been brewing beer since 1455.
