I will miss
- Sleeping on my belly
- My two cups of Coffee every morning
A glass of wine with DH when DD goes to bed- and it's not will miss, it's just miss.
Small, temporary sacrifice I guess.
beachbum28:my diet coke and my energy...its hard when you have a LO to chase....i have to have morning coffee...although now its one cup instead of 2!
I keep thinking the same thing, How am I going to chase my son around for the next 9 months...
My energy..and my sugar/carbs if I get GD again this time around.
Sounds vein but I will also miss my regular body a little bit. I lost all my weight from my pregnancy last year pretty quickly but I sort of feel like I didn't have much time to enjoy having my body back : /
*eating lots of Subway without thinking about it (although I will still have it once in a while, just not as much as I used to..everything in moderation)
*big morning coffee
*beer! My husband had a Sam Adams Octoberfest this past weekend - my favorite
But all are very small sacrafices in the scheme of things :)
Energy --- I'm just going to feel guilty not having the energy I should have for DS
Belly sleeping and the mass amounts of Dr. Pepper I usually drink.
But for right now, I just miss eating. I'd like to be able to eat and keep something down or stop selecting food based on how nasty it's going to be coming back up.
Belly sleeping for sure.
My caffeine. I work 3am-3pm and rely on mt. dew, coffee, pepsi to get me thru my day. Its defiantly rough now!
Mostly - runny eggs on toast (where the whites are cooked, but the yolks are runny)
Also - belly/back sleeping, coffee, beer/wine (but none of these are as painful as having to eat my fried eggs with the yolks completely cooked)
BFP#1: 2 year old DS, born 3/5/11
BFP#2: EDD 2/11/14, MMC confirmed 7/15/13 (growth stopped at 6 weeks), D&C @ 12 weeks 7/25/13
BFP#3: EDD 6/11/14 - We're having a girl!
Eating cold cuts and tuna fish whenever I want them.
Sleeping on my stomach.
A large glass of wine after a stressful day at work, and beer.
A "regular" stomach. May be TMI but I hate not being able to go to the bathroom!
I'm going to miss all the yummy pumpkin and autumn-style beers.
Otherwise, I miss my energy. I didn't have a lot in the first place so this whole "growing another human" thing is really wearing me down.
I will miss my glasses of wine here and there, but really the thing I'll miss the most is "Zach and Megan Time".
I was not happy when I found out I was pregnant. I am thrilled about it now, but when I think about not being able to do things with my husband that we're able to do now it makes me a little bitter.
I will miss "our" time the most! I am hoping when the baby comes this thought will no longer be in my head!
I can deal with giving up wine and sushi and diet Pepsis and more than 1 cup of coffee in the AM and my beloved bleu cheese for awhile - 9 months isn't forever and we're already down at least 1 month so really it's 8 or less for us.
I'll miss sleeping on my belly when I get big; I'll miss my pre-pregnancy body and I'll miss being able to participate in the bellydance troupe I am part of for a while.
Once the baby is here, I'll miss being able to just get up and go with DH wheverer we want w/o a lot of advance planning...and I'll miss our alone time as well. There are a lot of changes coming our way. We planned this pregnancy and we're happy about it, but wow this thread suddenly depressed me.

Sleeping on my belly :(
Enjoying my food, because at this point I don't think the nausea is ever going away :(
But at the end, it will be worth it :D :D
- Drinking: At the microbreweries with DH in Maine on our trip this month; at other microbreweries around Mass. and Vt. that we visit a couple times a year; at tailgating parties, football games, etc.; at my 10yr HS reunion in November; at holidays with my family.
- My everyday coffee (still have it when I need it, but I miss the regularity of having it every morning with DH).
Right now, I really miss food because I hate it all. And feeling normal. It would be nice to not feel nauseous every second of every day.
Pizza (usually my favorite, but now it makes me nauseous!)
Red wine as fall starts really kicking in! I'm headed to Door County, WI with my SILs and MIL in a few weeks, and there are a ton of locally bottled wines.
Looks like the girls have a DD!
I blog about nothing

I miss my
Occasional Girls night out with Cocktails
Fitting into my clothes
HOT DOGS - UGH
my spontaneous life
I know this is all worth and what I wanted. But it is nice to say what I miss.
Belly sleeping for sure.
I agree with PP that it is all small sacrifices and is totally worth it!
TONS of things - not going to lie!
RED WINE ...MMmmmmmm
Retin A and other skincare stuff/botox :)
multiple cup of coffee
most of my clothes that I won't be able to wear soon

You said it right there!!!! At least someone else understands.
