Things I Miss About Pregnancy

I cannot believe I just typed that! And I know y’all are shocked. There are a few things that I do miss about being preggers!

TM 012

*My last preggo pic and you can see how awesome my housekeeping skills are you know based on the cleanliness of the mirror……

If you are currently pregnant or are thinking of becoming pregnant these are the things you should totally take advantage of:

  • pie – I ate an entire pie a day. And now that I’m not pregnant I can no longer consume an entire pie daily….without people thinking I’m crazy. At least when you’re pregnant no one will say anything to you!
  • bitching – when you’re pregnant you can get away with being totally rude. Just blame it on the hormones. People are more forgiving when you are pregnant. Not so much once the baby arrives.
  • sleep – there’s no sleeping once you birth the kid. For the love of all things holy - sleep people! Seriously, quit your job and stay in bed the entire 9+ months. Leave only to get more pie and to pee! 
  • making the hubs do things for you – I could get my husband to do lots more for me while I was pregnant – not much but more than now. :) You are totally helpless while pregnant (at least I was) and I still don’t know how y’all care for a child while pregnant…..
  • presents – yes I’m a horrible person and I miss getting presents. I could use a baby shower right about now….diapers are expensive!
  • sanity – you think pregnancy brain is bad. Just wait till you meet 3-hours-of-sleep-brain.

I honestly have a hard time remembering what it feels like to be pregnant. I miss feeling the first flutters and those lovely kicks in the ribs. And the dancing on the bladder. However, I do not miss peeing on myself even though I must admit that doesn’t completely go away post pregnancy….just a warning.

Omg I SWEAR I have a post sitting in my drafts with the exact same title! I miss being preggo sometimes too, mainly when I'm eating 47 hot wings. People don't even bat an eye when you're knocked up and eating like that!

Hilarious! I love what you said about sleep. I need to do that and I am now wanting a pie! Thanks! :)

Jenny said...

This is hilarious! I will keep these in mind when I get pregnant! =)

Love this because even though I am so ready (at 38 1/2 weeks) to meet my baby you have reminded me to try and enjoy these last few days! I love her moving around in there and feeling so connected.. and having an excuse for just about anything ;)

I'm officially scared for post-pregnancy! I'm trying to keep these things in mind because right now I'm pretty much HATING pregnancy. The kicks to the ribs and taking cover in my right lung makes for a 100% always uncofortable momma...and I'm soooo over it already!

LG said...

LOL every now and then I think I miss it too! Then I go drink a beer! ha

Katharine said...

Hilarious. By the way, that picture is great...you look amazing!

Shannon Dew said...

Amen! And one big thing I miss? After the birth people bring you food, clean your house & do your laundry!!! Never again will that happen w/o feeling guilty about it!

Totally agree with this post...especially the sleep part. Even though I did get up 100,000 times a night to pee, it was always easy to go back to sleep. It's a tad more difficult getting a baby to go back to sleep and then trying to get back to sleep yourself. (But we wouldn't trade our babies...even for the sleep, huh?)

this is hilarious! As I type this, I'm 37 weeks pregnant sitting on the couch waiting for hubby to cook dinner. My only excuse to him for me not doing it is I "just can't". I'm trying to soak in the last few weeks of pregnancy b/c I know I don't have the excuses once she's here. :)
