5 THINGS I DON’T MISS ABOUT BEING PREGNANT


As you might know, pregnancy and especially the third trimester really wasn't my cup of a tea. Or coffee, as I prefer coffee nowadays (ah, finally back to my old bad habits). There are things that I miss being pregnant but today I'm sharing five things, that I don't miss about being pregnant at all.



FEELING LIKE A WHALE

Honestly, I felt like a whale for the last weeks of my pregnancy. I was rolling around from a place to a place and it actually got to the point where I wasn't able to tie my own shoelaces or reach to my own feet to get my own socks on them without the help of my lovely husband.

NOT BEING ABLE TO TIE MY OWN SHOELACES

Yeah, I thought this earned its spot to be mentioned in its own little paragraph.

SLEEPLESS NIGHTS

HEY-OO, I'm able to sleep again. Even though Dino wakes me up two or three times at night (depending on what time I go to bed), I sleep so much better. Because I actually sleep. And I can sleep on my stomach.

ALL THAT RIDICULOUS PAIN

I mean, pregnancy gives so many pains at times. For me, those combined with rheumatoid arthritis it was even worse. My back was killing me, my hips were killing me and most of all my knees were killing me. In total, I gained weight 7-8kg throughout the pregnancy and that weight gain was something my knees didn't sign up for. I've always walked around a lot and during the final weeks, my knees started to be a proper pain in the arse.

PREGNANCY BRAIN

Oh, the pregnancy brain. Wonderful times, thank god I got my old brain back pretty quick.

  6. I don't think about it much but sometimes I sleep on my stomach. I can understand why being pregnant would make that very difficult, aside from whatever pain was being experienced.

    1. Yeah, it wasn't that I'm not able to sleep on my stomach - I wasn't allowed to do so. :D Now I've been sleeping on my stomach every single night haha :D

  10. I agree. And not being "allowed" to eat certain foods.
    Plus being sick. Why can't pregnancy be glamourous!?
