Mama Time- Looking forward to...

Mama Time button

Well, I don't know about you, but there were definitely a few things that I was really looking forward to about not being pregnant anymore, so that is what today's meme is all about!

What were you most looking forward to doing postpartum that you couldn't do while pregnant, and did it live up to your expectations?

Personally, there were four things in particular that I was looking forward to:
1. Sleeping on my stomach (I remember longing for this towards the end of Roman's pregnancy too!).
2. Reclining on my back for anything (like watching TV or reading).
3. Wrapping up my stomach so that everything felt tight and put back together again (I will be talking about this much more in the coming weeks- it is a great way to promote healing after birth and encourage the uterus to shrink back to size).
4. Eating caesar salad (which I did a little this pregnancy- but hey, I was in Hawaii and it looked like the best caesar salad on the planet!).

And yes, each one of them have been as satisfying and wonderful as I had wanted them to be! Awww... to appreciate the little things in life! Pregnancy really can give you perspective!
