Waiting For Baby's Arrival

Lil Community: What Did You Look Forward to After Pregnancy?

Nine months can seem like a lifetime when you're pregnant. LilSugar reader SugarKat is already dreaming about life after her second tot arrives and shared her latest thoughts about pregnancy in The Pregnancy Posse group.

I belong to two wine clubs and get shipments even when I'm pregnant. I can't wait to try them. I love soft cheeses more than most other food in life. I would love a Jimmy John's sandwich once in a while. I can't wait to be able to bend over again.  I would rather not have to stretch for 10 minutes just to get out of bed in the middle of the night to pee. [But] most of all I'm looking forward to having my little boy in my arms. My daughter is super-excited to hold the little one and I hope is going to be the best helper around! 

What did you look forward to most after you have baby?

Drinking coffee again. My husband wouldn't let me have any coffe, tea, soda or even hot chocolate during my first pregnancy.

Of course, I couldn't wait to hold her and feed her and just be a hands-on Mommy, but other than that I was waiting very impatiently to be able to eat sushi again.

I missed sleeping on my back and jogging without wearing two bras and drinking a ton of Diet Coke and putting my wedding & engagement rings back on.

Ang-be careful. That's what I couldn't wait for during my first pregnancy and I never lost the baby weight. Enjoy in moderation, but it's totally hard. I love all of those things...except I like sleeping on my back.

I was joking about this with my sister in law the other day! We decided I would start the day with eggs benedict with extra hollandaise(too much fat has been giving me heartburn!), go wine tasting, sushi for lunch(mackerel is my favorite), and steak tar-tar for dinner. Can't wait!

No having everyone stare at my belly! I didn''t want to be a 'pregnant woman' to others anymore! Sleeping on my stomach was also something I missed although it took my two months to actually realize I was able to do that again!

--Being able to get out of the tub in one fluid motion, instead of having to get on all fours first --Seeing my toes --A tall, stiff drink (though that had to wait until she weaned) --Shoes that were not Crocs --No more kicky little feet on my bladder!

A spicy tuna hand roll, white wine, sleeping on my belly, wearing my normal size pretty bras again, and NOT feeling like a cow.
