The joys of not being pregnant

28 Jun
  • I can wrap myself in a towel and have the ends actually meet.
  • I can see my own feet.
  • Feet that are becoming less Hobbit-like by the day.
  • The stairs no longer loom like Everest.
  • I have more than an inch between my belly and the steering wheel.
  • Bland foods like toast no longer give me heartburn.
  • I can walk more than 3 feet without getting out of breath.
  • I  no longer have to limit myself to one $4 coffee a day! I can brew my own, and drink it all up! (I had to limit myself because I was very close to consuming two pots a day, which is excessive, even when not pregnant.)
  • I may be woken up 2 or 3 times a night, but I can go back to sleep!! That didn’t happen with pregnancy insomnia.
  • I can sleep on my back, or even my front if I want.
  • And best of all, I have a little* newborn to snuggle

 

* The term little is entirely subjective here, seeing as she was 9lb 7oz and 21 inches long.

(I am only 9 days post op and not running on all cylinders, but soooooooooo happy to not be pregnant anymore. Although when I was pregnant I didn’t find it all that bad. It’s just retrospectively.)

 

Baby makes

Slightly obsessed with making baby things.
I can’t seem to help myself.

With the Turtle I couldn’t bring myself to buy anything (anything. At. All.) besides the absolute minimum needed for my hospital bag.

But making things is so much fun. Especially those pants by Rae. Even if  I initially got confused by which seam was which.

I have another week or so. How much more making can I fit in???
