What five things are you looking forward to most about no longer being pregnant?

If you've already given birth (because there are soooooo many of you!!), what five things are you enjoying most about not being pregnant?

For me, I'm looking forward to:

1) Being flexible again. I really miss twisting my body around to relieve the pressure in my back. I miss lying on my stomach and bending down without a problem.

2) I am looking forward to partaking in adult beverages!! I can't wait to have a beer or a cider. A glass of wine

3) Not being restricted on what I can do physically! I would love to go to a theme park, go canoeing or bowling!!

4) Breathing. Because not being able to do that sucks

5) Playing with my son. I miss being able to spin him around and crawl after him. I know he does too

I'm looking forward to:

Eating a rare-medium rare steak
Being able to exercise and lose this weight
have a drink or 2... or 10 (I'll pump for a few days before... lol)
Sleep on my tummy
Look for a job; being off for the last 10 weeks or so was nice, but I miss being out with the "general public" lol
So in love with our Princess Kira Jean!!!

I miss
Sleeping on my tummy
Walking without my hips feeling like their splitting apart
Not having to graciously accept the scale going up a little every Dr visit
Clothes that cover my belly! (almost all my maternity stuff is riding up)
Shaving legs and everything easily!

1. Being able to sit and stand comfortably. I can't do either at the moment. It sucks.

2. Alcohol! I can't wait to be able to sit outside in our back yard and have a beer (or two)! Or a couple of glasses of wine while watching shows I love! Ahhhhh, how I have missed that!

3. Having a sex life with my husband. I really miss that intimacy.

4. Feeling like myself with my daughter and being able to play with her like I used to. I'm tired of telling her that mommy can't do something because she's pregnant.

5. Having more that 5 things to wear!

1. Sleeping on my tummy!

2. Holding my baby girl and nursing her.

3. Not getting stuck on the couch where I need my husband to help me up.

4. Being able to crawl on the floor to pick things up.

5. Being able to eat again--my stomach is so squished that it feels like I'm full when I've just started eating.
