Things You're Looking Forward To?


I'll admit... I currently think being pregnant SUCKS! I just got past the morning sickness but now I've got heartburn, constipation from the iron tablets I have to take, I'm constantly exhausted, which is not helped by having to get up at least twice a night to pee.

I know I'm not the only one. I can't be.

So I've been trying to focus on the things I'm looking forward to when it's all said and done and I'm holding my child.

Stuff like reading them bedtime stories, and singing lullabies (assuming my less than stellar voice doesn't keep him/her awake longer). Bath time, once they're at an age to actually play in the tub. The excitement of Christmas and Halloween in years to come.

Anyone else have little moments they're looking forward to in the future?

Oh, this made me go all teary Pregnancy hormones!!

I want to sing to my baby too I think I have a passable voice and like singing in the shower and when doing the washing up haha. I have this romantic idea that baby will get used to my voice and when s/he arrives all I'll have to do is sing the same songs and they will chill out beautifully in my arms! (Pass the sick bucket!!!)

I just cannot wait to see DH with our child. He is just going to be the best father and I'm so looking forward to watching them play. I have visions of them running around in the back garden together when bubs is a toddler and I think it's just going to be so lovely.

Looking forward to baking birthday cakes and seeing the look of excitement on their little face when they get their presents and try to blow out the candles

And just watching their personalities develop and see them grow into their own person. I just hope we do a good enough job as parents to make sure they become well-balanced, nice people

Yes! I love doing stuff in the kitchen. I can't wait to come up with cute snacks and treats for the LO.

I love this! It reminds me I need to think of all the positive things to come. I am actually excited for labor.
I am also VERY excited to hear my baby cry. With my first loss I went into preterm labor at 23 weeks and my baby was stillborn. So that explains why I have a weird excitement for a (hopefully) positive labor this time!

I'm also excited for family vacations and holidays. I loved them when I was younger so I can't wait to share joy that with my little one someday.

Positive thoughts for an awesome labor then!

The holidays are a big thing for me, too. Easter, Halloween and Christmas being the big three, since those were the ones my parents always made a fuss over for me and my brother as kids.

I'm not looking forward to anything other than getting my body back

I've tried and I've tried to be positive about this baby coming, but the honest truth is that we were done after three.
Don't get me wrong I'll love it when it's here, and I expect I'll really enjoy the cuddles and the smiles and so on, but I've had three, I know it's not a walk in the park, and I really didn't want to go through it again, so the only thing I'm looking forward to really is not being pregnant! I want my body back!

That's awful isn't it. I know.

Right now I'm looking forward to not being pregnant any more! Not having to turn over in bed every hour, not having to change my bed sheets almost every day from waking up drenched in sweat! I will miss the kicks & movements though, that's like something special just between the 2 of us. When the baby comes I'm looking forward to seeing my OH fall in love with her & be the best daddy ever. I'm looking forward to holding her & anticipating & experiencing all those "firsts" - first Christmas, smile, laugh, tooth... Etc.
