Thursday Thirteen #5

Thirteen Things I'm Looking Forward To After Giving Birth

Pregnancy is a wonderful blessing. Giving birth is an experience like no other. I have enjoyed both . . . multiple times. I am ready to meet my little baby. I am ready to not be pregnant!

  1. Sleeping on my stomach.
  2. No more heartburn.
  3. Having a lap for my children to sit on while we read.
  4. Walking up stairs without becoming winded.
  5. No longer hearing myself complain about how uncomfortable I am.
  6. Tying my shoes without breaking out in a sweat.
  7. Seeing my feet.
  8. Hugging my husband real close - but not close enough to make another baby!
  9. Having a beer or margarita or both.
  10. Hearing out of my left ear again. (by the 7th month of each of my pregnancies I'm no longer able to hear out of my left ear, weird, I know)
  11. Going more than an hour without having to pee.
  12. Getting down on the floor to play.

Thanks for stopping by Small Reflections and leaving your comment and the link here. I love meeting new bloggers through T-13s! I’m wondering how close to delivery you might be and may do some clicking around after leaving this comment, but time is an issue for me this morning so I can't stay long. I’ll certainly return again to get better acquainted when time permits and I hope you’ll visit me at Small Reflections and Sacred Ruminations. The quote from 2nd Corinthians in your sidebar is one of my favorite Bible verses ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

I too was excited about many of the same things. Little did I know that if you breastfeed you still can't sleep on your stomach and drink (obviously). The winded part, well I don't know once our little guy put on a few pounds going up and down stairs all day made me a little winded. Like your list. Good luck!

Awesome list! After reading it, I can't wait for you to be able to hold another baby too! My #32 is up. Happy TT

Isn't it funny the things you never think about, but miss like crazy when you can't do them? :) I love, love, love having a new baby, but I despise being pregnant (but am VERY thankful that I am able). Hearing that sweet baby cry for the first time in the delivery room makes it aallllll worth it though, doesn't it?!

I hope you get to experience all 13 REALLY soon. Happy Friday!!

Brings back memories. When are you due? Soon you'll have relief from those things and a precious baby to hold!
