Things I will miss, Things I will not miss

I know that this is my last pregnancy and I have spent some time thinking about what I will miss about being pregnant. It was an admittedly short list. So I had to make a counter list of things that I would not miss. After much contemplation, here it is:

Things I will miss:
feeling baby move (summersault, kick, push & turn)
elastic band pants
glossy hair

Things I will not miss:
pitting edema
carpel tunnel syndrome (numb fingers)
random nausea
not being able to see my feet
bladder the size of a thimble
gaining 4 pounds in 1 week
blood work
epidural fear - last time he missed
not bending & stretching

9 more days and I will be finished with my physical state of pregnancy. As noted I am ready to say good bye to this stage. Too bad you can't record the feeling of the baby moving within - because that is really cool. Sort of like that scene in the original Aliens without the chest bursting.

But alas all good things need to end.

I hear ya sista! I understand about having no more babies (slightly different circumstances than you, I realize).....all the "firsts" for me are also the lasts, and that's a total bummer :(
