    I really miss being able to lie on my front or my back! I used to go to sleep lying flat on my back and wake up in the morning on my front. Now I try to sleep on my side with a pillow between my knees and find it really difficult: I can sleep on the bus, in meetings, and even in hospital chairs, but not in my own bed at night. The mornings are a different matter; I could sleep all morning if I didn't have to work!!!

    I miss being able to wear what I want and not having to think carefully about what will cover the bump decently for work and keep me warm/cool enough.

    I miss being able to tie my shoelaces without puffing and straining to get down there! Think I should get some slip ons!

    Being able to wear my sexy little camisoles with jeans!!! A tiny, tiny, tiny sacrifice to pay compared to the delight I will have when my baby arrives!!!!

    1. More than anything I am missing my jeans.... :( :(

    2. Wearing high healed shoes (tried once and almost broke my ankle) :(

    3. Sitting at the table for dinners out and not giving myself enough room to actually fit in the space, looks quite funny, but I awlays forget... :(

    4. Could not put the sta on the top of the Christmas tree this year :(

    5. I miss not being as mobile... I am usually awlays doing things and I feel lazy sometimes.

    BUT..... I am not complaining LOL

    - absolutely!! My usual 'uniform' is jeans with a strappy camisole and a little cardigan - but cami's look rubbish with sports bras and the little cardies are just ridiculous now!!

    As you say - it's a small price to pay ;o)

    Things I do now-


    1) Not being able to walk as fast and having to constantly tell my OH to slow down...

    2) I never in a million years thought my bum would grow at the same rate at my belly, I said goodbye to my jeans a while ago :(

    3) If I have a sneezing fit I pee myself, very embarrasing, especially when im out shopping!

    4) When I go to hug OH, my belly and his pot belly meet before we put our arms round each other (or as much as our arms will stretch)

    5) Being really fussy about food, no more curries, chinese, coffee, bacon.......

    6) And Ive turned into an emotionally unstable, teary, foul mouthed, angry, sensitive monster.from.hell! :shock:


    But as you say, it's all worth it! Bring on April!

    Ah, yes, that is a pain. Especially as it such a role reversal - I've always been a fast walker so it feels really odd - and a little bit pathetic - to be saying 'I can't keep up, slow down!'

    Well i think i will have to go in labour with long toenails :cry: I have asked my OH to cut them for me as i cannot bend anymore and he laughed telling me to dream on!!!!

    Nice isn't it?

    Walking normally is a big miss!!! I feel like a penguin trying to make its way up a hill lol

    And most of all, sleeping on my belly, first thing i will do after birth :)

    I love having a full, fat belly. Not because I'm a super-positive earth mother but because (after three kids) it's the only time when my belly doesn't look like chicken skin!
