Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, don’t get me wrong, but am I the only one who is more than a little excited for the after pregnancy part? I love getting to meet that new little person, and all the baby snuggles of course!
I think a lot of moms go through that stage where you can’t wait for the end of your pregnancy. It’s normal to want to get your body back and to move forward in life! I was very anxious for the end of my pregnancy. Here are five things I was really looking forward to after pregnancy.
Things to Look Forward to After Pregnancy:
1. Wearing Cute Clothes.
Sure maternity clothes are cute and all, but seriously I am ready to get back my real clothes! I am so excited to start wearing the things that are on the other side of my closet, especially the clothes I have not been able to fit into since last year. The closer I get to the end of my pregnancy the harder it is find something that fits right. I can hardly wait to start looking cute again and not feel so big!
2. Drinking Caffeine Again.
I know that some moms still drink coffee, soda, and other caffeinated products during their pregnancy, but since I wasn’t really addicted to coffee or soda before, I decided it would be easy to give it up during pregnancy. Even though I didn’t have a lot of caffeinated drinks before pregnancy, I’ve started to really miss what I can’t have, especially coke! As soon as I can I am going to have one of those extra large cokes from a fast food place, and I am really going to enjoy it!
I still have been exercising during this pregnancy. I do some walking and other things to keep in shape, but I am really looking forward to running on the treadmill and losing some of this baby weight! I am not usually a person who likes to run, but after nine months of taking a break, I am more than ready to get my exercise on!
4. No Heartburn!
I had never experienced heartburn until I was pregnant, and let me tell you it has not been very fun! Tums have become my best friend, and I am looking forward to the day when I don’t have to have them sitting by my bed waiting for me to use them!
5. Sleeping on my Stomach.
Oh, how I have missed sleeping on my stomach! In order to get used to sleeping on my side, I started sleeping on my side early on in my pregnancy. Now I am counting down the days until I get my precious stomach back, and can sleep however I want!
