I’ve not had the easiest ride through this pregnancy with some pretty nasty morning sickness until Month 7 & continuing hip problems (SPD) from week 15 – but it has been amazing to feel her kick, grow and dance along to her Daddy playing piano. While I’ll miss having her all safe and sound in the bump I am more than just a little excited to get back to being just ‘me’ and also the new ‘me’ as a Mum! As the big day approaches I’ve been thinking more and more about what I just can’t WAIT to do again…

1. Eat Sushi.
ALL the sushi. An embarrassing amount of sushi. In fact, just leave me alone with the sushi and come back in a few days…

2. Stand up/get out of bed without making some sort of involuntary groan…
Remember when you used to be able to just stand up and that was no big deal…? No, I can’t remember any more either.

3. NOT need to pee 87654 times a day…
Enough said.

4. Sleep on my stomach!
I’m not sure I even did this before but I’d just like the option you know?!

5. Walking more than 50ft without being tired…
Or up a hill slight slope without having to be dragged up by my partner.

6. Drink as much coffee as I can…
All this decaf nonsense is just not right.

7. Speaking of drinking…
Anyone for a cocktail? Or three?

8. Not hitting my stomach into doors, tables, people…ok…literally anything..
My spacial awareness has officially gone out the window in these last few weeks & it’s been embarrassing more than a few times.

9. People not saying (the same few) ridiculous things to me every day…
New favourite: ‘Ooh your bump is huge, theres no way you are making it to your due date.’ Errr… Thanks a bunch, Asshat.

10. Fitting back into my wardrobe. And heels.
Oh to wear cute shoes again and actually be able to reach them to do them up…
