Things I’m Looking Forward to After the Baby


I’ll be honest with you, I’m loving this pregnancy thing right now. The aches and pains are random and tolerable. The weird, but regular symptoms are totally manageable. My belly is definitely noticeable, but I’m not so large that I’m uncomfortable yet. The second trimester was totally incredible, folks. I just loved it. If you want me to be honest with you, I think I’m the super happy, excitable pregnant lady that people love to hate. Oh, well! I’ll just own it.

I just started third trimester of my pregnancy.

Just typing that feels incredible to me. There still isn’t really much that I’m craving, but occasionally I’ll think of something that I want, and I can’t have until baby gets here. Here’s a list of all the things I plan on doing or eating once Little Miss O gets here.

I’m looking forward to…

  • eating oysters.
  • sleeping on my belly.
  • eating soft cheeses.
  • drinking Lindeman’s Framboise.
  • eating Italian grinders.
  • batting practice at the baseball batting cages.
  • drinking mixed drinks like sangria or margaritas or mojitos.
  • fitting in some of my own clothes that I won’t be able to fit in for a while – hopefully.
  • meeting my baby in person!
  • eating sushi.

And while I can’t wait to eat or do some of these things, I honestly don’t want to rush being pregnant. I just want to enjoy this for everything it is right now.

    Hehe, as much as you said you loved pregnancy… I would have been surprised if you weren’t looking forward to a few things after pregnancy as well.

    What are Italian grinders?

    I can’t for your little girl to enter this world!

      Oh, there is definitely a lot I miss. I guess I just thought I’d feel more emotional about some things. I expected I’d reallllly miss coffee or booze, etc., and while I would love to have a cup every once in a while, I’m okay with just waiting. I do get a little jealous of other people though!

      I forgot that “grinder” is mostly a northeastern term. You probably call it an Italian Sub? It’s basically just a meat sandwich and sometimes has lettuce, tomato, onion and peppers in it. Check out this link:
