A Few Thoughts

Post pregnancy excitement
      1.  Clothes, clothes & more clothes – I have been dying to try out the colored jean trend and get some cute new patterned tops/dresses.  Here are a few I’ve had my eye on.  My wardrobe will also triple in size because hopefully after a few months I will be able to wear some of my pre-pregnancy items.

2.  Working out – I can’t wait to bust a move on the treadmill or go to a class and actually be able to keep up.  I’m finding myself winded these days just going up a few stairs.  Also, having a goal and workout regime in mind is something I look forward to.
3.  The Ta-Tas – This is a gross description I know, but seriously it is getting out of hand.  I’m fully aware that these gallon jugs are going to get even larger while I am the main source of the baby’s food supply.  A girl can look forward to the deflation, right?  Call me crazy – I’ll probably change my mind after it happens. 
4.  Bending over – Sumo wrestler, squatting or panting lady is how I would describe myself when I pick things up these days.  Everything is just sooooo squished.

What Will Be Missed
1.  Feeling the baby move – If you haven’t experienced this yet, it is quite incredible peeps.  Yes there are times when you get a good jab to the ribs or bladder but overall it is fantastic.
2.  Lack of Working Out – I know this is contradicting what I already said.  There are a lot of times though where I really have enjoyed slacking off and not feeling too guilty about it.  It has been a nice break and I will miss having a good justification.
3.  Pot Belly – Yep, I am really going to miss letting it all hang out.  I can’t remember the last time I tried to “think skinny” as my dad would say.  I don’t even know if my muscles will be able to recall how to suck it in.  I guess we will see.

I hope some of you are in my boat and have or had a list of things you looked forward to after being pregnant.  I would love to see what is on your list...

PS...Of course I am ecstatic/frightened for the actual baby and all it entails.  It just seemed to obvious to list.


  1. love this, totally laughing here. i remember having dreams of being able to to sit ups/cruches. i had the biggest desire to just bend in half. you are so close! can't wait to see baby bell :)

  2. hahah so true! I too find myself day dreaming about being able to wear better clothes again...but then also getting really emotional when i think about not being able to feel baby kicks anymore

  3. oh girl just enjoy those ta-ta's. afterwards (well after nursing at least) they are a saggy mess! haha. I was the same way with the whole colored jean trend...couldn't wait to get me some. hope you are doing well! good luck these next few weeks:)
