5 Things I MISS about being Pregnant
As the end of this pregnancy draws nearer – hurray – I’ve been thinking about the things I miss about being pregnant once I am sans bump!
We are not planning to have any more children after this one so this will be my last pregnancy forever. As much as I’m pleased that my family will soon be complete, there are a few things I will miss about being pregnant:
Ahh as I’ve gotten bigger and rounder, as much as I’ve complained about the pelvic pain and lack of sleep, I have enjoyed grabbing the opportunity to sit and do nothing whenever possible. Whenever my lovely husband allows me to of course which is, luckily for me, quite often. I’m very excited about the impending arrival of baby #2 but I know that ‘rest’ will soon become a thing of the past.
2. Quiet Nights
Something else that will not be making an appearance in my future months! My first baby is not yet 2 years old and the memory of the noisy, cry-filled sleep-less days and nights is still very fresh in my mind. Even though my sleep at night is hit and miss at the moment, it is at least quiet!
Oh it is so lovely to be told by family, friends and even strangers that I look good, have the pregnancy glow, am blooming etc. They are probably lying – I think I look like death – but I’ll take the compliments anyway! I know from last time that once the baby is here, it will take centre stage and I’ll be invisible.
4. Lovely, thick hair
I just love that in my pregnancies, my hair stops falling out and becomes so much thicker. I’ll be trying my best to retain as much of it as possible! However I know from last time that around 3-4 months, it will probably start falling out – boo hoooo.
5. The actual Bump!
I will miss my constant little friend being with me every second of the day. Don’t get me wrong, I know my newborn will be attached to me 99% of the time when it makes it’s appearance but at the moment, it’s on my terms!
I like carrying Mini around with me wherever I go, rubbing my tummy and always having someone to talk to. I probably sound like a crazy person now.
It will be lovely to share the baby with the rest of the world but right now, this baby is all mine and it feels so special.
I’ll always have treasured memories of carrying my babies and I feel very lucky and blessed to have had the opportunity to do so.
