One thing you miss?
 
Don't get me wrong. I am thrilled to be expecting a baby and would gladly give up anything that could harm him/her. But, what is one thing you miss?

For me, it is a steamy hot bubble bath on these cold nights. The warm ones ate just not cutting it.

This is going to sound terrible, but I miss smoking lol! I'm a medic and 80
Percent of the people I work with smoke, my best friend smokes and even my
Parents. I miss it and still crave it after four weeks
Of no cigs. **Sigh**

Thankfully hubby doesn't smoke, so I'm
Not around it at home. That does make it easier.

I have not had a real break since I went straight from pregnancy to breastfeeding and back to pregnancy. I am not a big drinker but today I was irritable and thinking I wanted to drink some wine. I am not such a puritan that I won't have a sip or small amount here and there with dinner, even pregnant or nursing, but my urge tonight was more for a big glass or two on an empty stomach :P random urge!!

I have luckily not gotten many headaches yet but when/if i do, I will sorely miss ibuprofen! And that one is a big no no.

I would take a hot bath though. Not enough of your body is submerged to raise your core temp. Unless you have a really deep fancy tub or something. I have always heard it is just hot tubs and saunas but home baths and showers are nbd.

I know this sounds terrible, and I wouldn't change my situation for anything, but since I'm single now...I miss being able to date. I never dated much, but knowing that it's going to be a long time before I get to date again or have a new relationship is kind of sad to me. But I know it's totally worth it, plus I can't focus on anything but this baby anyway!

I second the margaritas!

Also, sleeping. Lately I have been tossing and turning and sleeping very lightly. I'm normally dead to the world when I sleep and I would give anything to have that back.

Food! Lol

Nothing tastes good, hardly anything stays down. Blah. And as long as you do not raise your core temp a hot bath is perfectly fine.

I'm not much of a drinker, but I'd really like to have a glass of wine now and then, or a margarita, or some Baileys and coffee...

I'm going to miss celebrating opening day and st Patrick's day in the spring. I had booked a trip to Vegas for our new year's eve anniversary but cancelled once I found out I was pregnant. Just didn't seem like it would be as fun. Once I have the babies I will miss ever running somewhere really quick again haha

Adult beverages. I enjoy a drink after a hard week and I have had a couple of doozies lately.

A beer - I really want a beer!

And running, dr. has made me stop :( and all I want to do is go on a long trail run!

Feeling normal. LOL. Since I found out I have been either terribly emotional or really sick. I just want to wake up and feel like myself.

Wine!!! Unlike previous posters, it's nothing for me to have a glass of wine each night. It's great after a stressful day. I love my wine!! I've joked about bringing a bottle to the delivery room and having a glass as soon as baby was born. LOL. Pretty sure that wouldn't be allowed though. LOL.

I second running! I had to quit too, and it's SUCH a great stress reliever!

Excedrin and a hot bath. I've been having some pretty awful headaches with this pregnancy and the Tylenol doesn't seem to be doing much good for them.

I am so thankful to be pregnant and I'm happy to give up everything for these few precious months since this will be be my last. That being said, I do miss having a glass of wine or a beer with dinner on the weekend. I also miss being able to work out hard, I'm still excersising 5 days a week but I've had to really take it down a few notches. I miss being able to sleep already. I just toss and turn all night.

Sushi and Coke. I know I can have both of those in moderation but I usually cut them out or refrain from them for long periods of time over my pregnancies. I told my husband the first thing I wanted after having our son was lox and a Coke. The morning after we had him *he was born at 4 AM so several hours later* what did I have for my first breakfast as a new mom, lox and Coke courtesy of my husband, he remembered. Ill be waiting for the same after this one is born too
