Worth the Wait

As our "due" date gets closer, I'm thinking about some of the things I'll looking forward to doing after our arrival. Although I know I'll be totally distracted by this new little face in our lives, I still am anxious to:

  • eat a Subway sandwich (it's recommended that pregnant women don't eat lunchmeat/coldcuts)
  • zip up my pants (all the pants I wear these days have elastic waistbands or belly panels)
  • sleep on my stomach (which has been avoided for for obvious reasons)
  • snowboard (thought I'd throw that one in there to see if you're paying attention -- seriously though, I'd like to learn how to snowboard!)

But on a more serious note, I've really grown used to having this little stranger in my belly. It's been a unique experience that I won't ever forget and have enjoyed more than I ever thought I would. I'm thinking the enjoyablity may waiver a bit once labor starts : )

Still waiting, huh? I know these last few days or weeks are the most uncomfortable, but don't worry, you'll be able to see your shoes again in no time. And that super hard, stretched belly will soon turn to a sack of jello... doesn't sound that great, but believe me, it's a huge relief!

You mentioned looked forward to sleeping on your stomach... I thought the best thing was being able to hop out of bed without having to roll, sway and lean my way out.

One thing I really missed was not being able to feel that little person in my belly anymore. It freaks you out a little b/c you are so used to counting on that movement as a sign that everything is still OK in there. I would have to stop myself... oh yeah, it's fine she's in my arms now instead... ha ha.
