Tell me things I will miss about the 3rd tri!!!

I am so grateful to be pregnant and have made it to 30 weeks, but the thought of getting through this next bit is getting to me! sad
The nausea is back, constantly hungry, dizzy, exhausted, SPD and just plain hormonal. Plus working full time and travelling 45 minutes each way on packed trains is making this not fun.
I'm a real shorty too, so feel so squashed and breathless, used to being so independent and energetic so just feeling down and such a constant moaner!

SO PLEASE tell me what I should treasure and what makes this last bit special - and tell me it will fly by!

Things I will miss:
1. feeling my little girl move and knowing she is close and safe
2. getting the nursery ready
3. the way DH touches and loves my belly
4. spending quality time alone with DH

If it is your first then you will miss sleeping when you want to.

But you get that back eventually wink

Congratulations grin

Sleep/being able to guarantee not being woken up. Dd is 3 and I still can't be sure when I'm going to be woken. That's it. Not much else I missed about any of the pregnancy tbh, it's a long wait!

Can't advise, 37 weeks here... Watching eith interest though!

I do think I will miss it being just the two of us, and the popping out etc we can do now!

I loved feeling I had company if you see what I mean and the little things like the baby having hiccups and watching my bump move whilst in the bath...didnt miss trying to get out though!! On the whole yes it is a tough time...I told myself it miight be over by 37 weeks though so aimed for that...felt less long and indeed gave birth both times at 38....not that I think I influenced that...although did lots of raspberry leaf tea!!! Hope all goes well...that moment when you first see your baby makes it worth it totally! Cling to that!

Thanks ladies! That is encouraging.... sorry for the moan at the start!!!

Um, you'll miss playing the pregnancy card and getting your dh to give foot massages/make hot drinks/do the housework grin Ooh no, that can continue with a newborn!
If it's your first then you'll miss the peace and quiet, being able to leave the house quickly, reading, having lie ins. I could go on.

I'll miss ds cuddling bump and saying "hello sister" smile

I had a horrendous pregnancy with my first... It was still a cakewalk compared to the newborn weeks/months. grin

Even with a toddler now, I feel like things are only going to be tougher once DD2 is on the outside. So enjoy the last weeks of pregnancy as much as you can (and god, yes, baby kicking is just THE BEST).

Luckily, babies are cute and they become interesting, funny people very quickly. Good luck. smile

you won't miss it. BUt it's only 10 weeks and babies are well worth the wait smile

SweetPea86 Tue 18-Feb-14 17:10:38

I'm so grateful to be pregnant but I will not miss pregnancy one bit. Only thing I will miss are baby kicks, but baby will be here to cuddle at any time.

I will not miss feeling or being sick nothing at all lol.

Some of my friends loved pregnancy and I've really tried to but sickness spd has made it miserable.

Pixielady83 Tue 18-Feb-14 17:13:05

I missed my bump. The jelly belly wasn't as appealing. I also missed the chance to do what I wanted to do. It takes a long time to get that back! Newborns are extremely demanding! smile

Fairypants Tue 18-Feb-14 17:13:54

I missed the baby in my tummy. I knew I had a newborn but I couldn't make the link between her and the squirmy wormy thing I'd grown to love in my tummyblush

SaucyJack Tue 18-Feb-14 17:48:03

No worrying or caring about looking skinny. I like my bump and I breathe out with pride.

beela Tue 18-Feb-14 18:43:34

Being able to take the baby anywhere and not worry whether it is awake / asleep / hungry / hot etc.

You will miss being able to rest your cup of tea and a plate of toast on your bump

CointreauVersial Tue 18-Feb-14 18:58:00

Having thick, shiny hair, clear skin and long nails, thanks to all those hormones. After the birth it all went to pot, but it was a nice perk while it lasted!

blushingmare Tue 18-Feb-14 19:10:05

Being able to eat a meal with two hands.

Having genuine time to yourself.

Being able to leave the house without requiring any thought or planning.

Feeling contented and happy about your bump rather than slightly ashamed of your jelly belly.

It will go by in a flash and what you're waiting for is so worth it smile

blushingmare Tue 18-Feb-14 19:15:22

PS. I'm 30 weeks this week too and the thing I'm really treasuring is spending special quality 1-1 time with DD. Of course it will be wonderful when this one arrives, but it also makes me sad that she's going to have to share me sad

AmandaHE Tue 18-Feb-14 19:19:16

People are much friendlier to you...? Old ladies smile at you in the street (and when you have a new born in a pram) but when you first make it out on your own again with no baby and no bump you will remember that the world is mean. And baby is really quiet compared to the screaming version that will come out soon. I am desperate for my last 5 weeks to fly by and am trying to value waking in the night to move position and go back to sleep rather than waking to feed!

singlespeedlass Tue 18-Feb-14 19:47:25

You'll miss being able to pop out for milk etc and it doesn't take half an hour longer than it needs to!!

Supercalafraga Tue 18-Feb-14 20:26:48

ooohhh. Thanks for reminding me about having to worry about sucking my tummy in! grin
