Isn’t it magical how our bodies create tiny life? However in return, we succumb many obstacles. Obstacles I won’t miss that’s for sure. Here’s a list of things I won’t miss about being pregnant:

Heartburn. I hate you. Rot in hell. That is all.

Granny pants. Let’s be real, comfy pants are the only way forward throughout pregnancy. Goodbye and good riddens!

Having to pee ALL THE TIME! Waking up on the hour every hour in the last trimester to trickle no more than a teaspoon. Oh and having someone constantly sitting on my bladder, I definitely won’t miss that. Or peeing myself when I laugh. Peeing myself when I sneeze. And peeing myself when I cough.

Cravings at silly-o-clock. Maybe the other half won’t miss this one either.

Glowing goddesses. Eh, where did you get all your energy from?

Not being able to kiss my kid’s goodnight without the fear of falling and suffocating them.

Waddling. How attractive do I look?

Not being able to sleep on my belly. Twisting and turning all night to try and get comfortable, only to be disturbed by a toilet run.

Emotional outbursts for no apparent reason. Crying at every advert that has a cooing baby.

Insomnia. Mother Natures way of preparing us for eighteen years of sleepless nights.

Pregnancy brain. Although that will be replaced with baby brain. Wait I’ve got that three years now, maybe it’s just me?

And finally, I won’t miss having to watch all the fun from the sideline. It’s so frustrating not being able to take part or being exhausted during our little adventures.

Is there anything you don’t/won’t miss about pregnancy?

5 Comments on Things I Won’t Miss About Being Pregnant

  1. Aw, I do miss my bump and get bump envy when I see other pregnant women, but I definitely don’t miss the waddling and the hip and groin pain I got while pregnant. I could barely walk with my third baby! x
