Something light hearted for a bit of fun!!!

Obviously everyone is looking forward to meeting their new baby etc.

But what else are you really looking forward to????

I'm looking forward to sleeping on my front and eating a delicious rare fillet steak. Nom!!

Wearing some different outfits! Seriously bored of my maternity outfits.
A nice steak and glass of rosè

Love the idea of this thread!
- Eating rare steak and smoked salmon
- Enjoying a cold glass of white wine on a hot summer evening
- Being able to sleep more than now (an unrealistic goal I know!!)
- Going more than 24 hours without being sick! Whoop whoop!

I looked forward to eating all the cheese.
Putting the baby down!!
Seeing my feet again.

The best bit. The baby cuddles and the tea and toast post birth. Best meal ever!!!!

INeedNewShoes Tue 18-Apr-17 20:45:21

A Hendricks Gin & tonic

Then (on a different evening wink) opening a bottle of champagne I've been harbouring for the occasion, to be drunk with nibbles of pate, cured meats, little peppers stuffed with goats cheese etc.

Later down the line, once the nether regions have recovered and I can leave the baby for an hour or so, a bike ride.

Going back a few years. - I had a post-natal picnic with soft blue cheese and pate.

I was hoping to sleep on my front again, but that had to wait until the end of BFing

NiceCuppaTeaAndASitDown Tue 18-Apr-17 20:45:39

@mummabubs, if you're in the U.K. then smoked salmon is fine! I had some todaysmile

SellMySoulForSomeSleep Tue 18-Apr-17 20:46:09

Sleeping on my front again.
Having less hip pain

Crisscrosscranky Tue 18-Apr-17 20:48:59

Not having heartburn
Normal clothes
Being able to paint my toe nails
Being able to roll over in bed
DH giving me a proper cuddle (bump moving freaks him out)

PingusMistress Tue 18-Apr-17 20:49:14

Really sorry to burst your bubble OP but you won't be able to lie on your front for a while! I thought that in my first pregnancy but your boobs feel like rocks and are leaking milk everywhere, it is too uncomfy (and wet)!

Not needing a pee every ten minutes was awesome though.
As was the disappearance of heartburn and swollen ankles.
And the massive basket of stinky French cheese and red wine that my dad brought me grin

AiryFairy1991 Tue 18-Apr-17 20:50:08

Mr Whippy ice cream, dreading being pregnant over summer and watching everyone else with their 99's!

NotAnotherUserName5 Tue 18-Apr-17 20:55:20

Sleeping on my front! 8 weeks to go (ish!)

CatRash Tue 18-Apr-17 20:56:57

Some of these are hilarious!!!

Didn't think about the whole boob situation post birth!!! Damn!!!

Another one - being able to burp without following through hmm

I had a Mr Whippy on Saturday AiryFairy - didn't realise I couldn't!!!! Tell you what though - it was amazingly delicious!!

SuperManStoleMyPants Tue 18-Apr-17 20:59:40

Not needing to pee all the time,
Going for a poo without being kicked each time,
Not getting stuck in the tub,
Being able to put things on my feet,
Not waddling after 10 steps,
Meeting baby and finding out of I have a son or a daughter,
