What I'll miss about pregnancy. . .
Hearing their heartbeat
Seeing them on an ultrasound
Feeling the baby movements
Recognizing baby hands and feet as they are pushing so hard on my belly
Eating whatever I want for 9 months
What I'm glad I will never experience again. . .
Morning sickness (or all day sickness for that matter)
The stress of the first 12 weeks, waiting to hear the heartbeat and be out of the "danger zone"
Maternity pants and the constant tugging/adjusting they require
Not being able to breathe for 9 months (luckily this time we got a grip on my allergies)
My belly getting in the way of doing things like reading books with my kids on my lap
Bumping in to things with my belly (once I set my sweater on fire while cooking dinner, oops)
Perfect strangers touching my belly
Birthing stories and advice from same perfect strangers
Hearing how I have "popped" or "blossomed" or other lovely adjectives people use to describe me
Answering the questions "when are you due?" and "have you picked a name yet?"
A psycho sciatic nerve
