Oh Hey Friday! How I Missed You.


Friday, October 10, 2014

Oh Hey Friday.  I haven't participated in one of these in weeks and I missed it.  I love linking up with so many amazing bloggers...especially my favorite, Karli.

This week, I thought I would post the five things that I miss the most while being pregnant.

One.  WINE.  Or any alcohol for that fact.  It only hits me when I have dinner with my girlfriends, we make pasta at home, we go to a tailgate, we watch a football game or at a party/event.  So basically I am saying most of the time.  Ok it's not that bad, but I feel like I am not one of the cool kids anymore and can't wait for wine nights with my girlfriends again.

Two.  Sushi.  I may have had sushi twice since being pregnant...may have, and I don't regret it.  But I am talking about the full fledged menu of anything and everything I can possibly eat.  I miss eating the tuna rolls and it seems like every roll has tuna in it.  Now I am a big time salmon fan, but most of my favorite rolls have a combo of both.  I get so jealous and give my husband the stink eye when he has a roll that I want so badly.  Enjoy it buddy.

Three.  Running.  I find this such a funny thing to miss while being pregnant, but I really miss it.  I miss working out hard.  I miss my spin class.  I miss the weights, stairs, working my booty off and just getting a good sweat in that doesn't come from a walk to the mailbox (kidding, kind of).  I was able to run for about 10 weeks of my pregnancy and then things got really hard (that's what she said).  It was harder to breathe and maintain my daily run.  So I cut it down.  Then we found out we were having twins and I had to modify my workouts.  So I did, and they have been cut down to now walking, swimming, some yoga at home and a bit of weights.  Ugh.  So I walk and walk everyday, but it isn't the same.  I loved working out because it was my stress release, I felt really good about myself and I loved a good sweat.  You better bet your butt I will be back in that gym as soon as the doctor clears me.

Four.  Feeling sexy and clothes that fit.  Now don't get me wrong, I love being pregnant and wearing really comfy clothes without caring too much, but I miss wearing my heels, jeans, sexy tops, hot dresses and basically anything without spandex in it.  But it really comes down to the shoes for me lately.  Thank goodness it is getting to be cooler fall weather so I can bust out my boots because high heels kill my feet.  Pregnancy = swollen feet = extremely uncomfortable days in heels.  How in the world do celebrities wear heels while being pregnant?

Five.  Sleep.  I do sleep quite a bit more since becoming pregnant, but it is pretty random.  With all the trips to the bathroom each night, I just want an uninterrupted nights rest.  And to be able to sleep on a airplane again.  I used to be able to pass out within minutes of take off.  Now I am so uncomfortable sleep is a thing of the past.  And I know it is only going to get worse.

Ok enough of the Debbie Downer stuff because I do love my bump, the babies kicking and the little miracles growing inside of me.  I really do feel blessed to be in the position that I am.

Wanna join in on the link up fun?  I know you do.

    1. I know I will. But I see how small and cute your belly is and I laugh at my big cute twin belly. But the unlimited amounts of ice cream make up for it :)

    1. Thank you. Sushi is my favorite and it has been killing me that I am limited, but I make due for now. You should head out west to Colorado or Lake Tahoe. Best skiing/snowboarding. I love the wintertime here for the beauty and fun. Sleep is definitely one of my favorite things right now, so I cherish every last second which makes weekdays awful since I don't get to sleep in enough.

      Thanks for following along, I hope you stick around!
