What Will You Miss Most?

I know it seems hard to believe, what with the middle-of-the-night calf cramps and the swelled feet (by the way -- is your husband commenting on your sausage-looking-toes grounds for a divorce or am I overreacting?), but pregnancy is actually chock full of awesomeness once people stop wondering if you're fat and know you are OBVIOUSLY PREGGO.

Can't think of anything good about your third trimester except that it's almost over? Let me help...

As your due date (quickly) approaches, what do you think you'll miss most about pregnancy?

I guess the great hair - it's like I got extensions for length and volume. My skin also turned clear and rosy for most of the time. That and having a big event to look forward to that you know will somehow still be surprising. I think I would've had lots more to miss if I didn't have this darn HG! I'm still in hibernation mode...

I have to agree about the wavy stomach, although this time around, she has really been trying to escape and it hurts more often than not so sometimes its not so fun.

As for those 10 things, i would have to agree with 3 - used that one many times.  4 - Definitely, 5 - not so much on a public transport setting, but being offered a seat in general. 6 - Given that one a work out too.  And 9 - although that gets a bit annoying, i hate feeling like a complete invalid.

The only thing I'll miss is the long finger nails.  Nothing else has been fun.  But it has been nice to have long girly nails for a few months, non-pregnant I can never grow them.
