With only a few days (hopefully) left of being pregnant, I have been thinking a lot about what I will look forward to when I am no longer with child. Nick and I plan to have another baby, but in the case those plans change, I want to make sure I remember the good things about being pregnant. Although I am not one of those girls who "love being pregnant," I can't complain about this pregnancy at all. Other than bouts of heartburn, typical pregnancy pains, and having to pee every 10 minutes, it's been a good ride. So, here is a short rundown of what I will miss when I am no longer pregnant.

Hiccups: Sienna has hiccups multiple times a day. It's so funny to watch my belly jump in a rhythmic motion.
Attention: I remember after I had Eastan, I suddenly received no attention. It's a little bit of a shock because you go from everyone asking how you are doing to not even being greeted when you enter a room because people are so excited to see the baby. I mean, I can't even lift a staple at my office without some one trying to help me out. It's annoying at times, but really something I should have taken advantage of early on.
The Foot: I will miss feeling Sienna's foot as it pokes out from the side of my belly. I just picture this cute, little, perfectly round heel pushing from inside as Sienna stretches. I can't wait to see the little foot that causes me pain and joy at the same time!
The Basketball Palm: I will miss the way Nick palms my belly like a basketball with his giant hands. I'll also miss how he has this little laugh when he feels Sienna move. It's so cute.

I'll save what I'm looking forward to so if I'm still pregnant next week, I will have something to blog about. Don't judge if that list is longer and I'm not as sentimental! :)

I loved reading what you wrote. For your sake I hope you aren't still pregnant next week. I will make sure to greet you first when I come to see Sienna, after all you are giving me my 4th grandchild and I appreciate you very much!! OMGosh, my word verification for this comment is LABOA (awfully close to the word LABOR). What a coincidence.

I think something magical happens at 39 weeks and 4 least that is when my water broke and I had Zachary. Best of luck to both of you guys! Can't wait to hear about and see "Sugar Bottoms".
