Yowoto woman writing in diary with pen in mouth

    Nitrates, nitrates and more nitrates I know that at some point in the near future after my baby is born, I’ll have to start thinking about all the criminally expensive clothes that I’ve outgrown. But first, I’m going to attack food like it’s going out of style. Mommy needs her sausages, ham, bacon and other unhealthy meats. And lots of it.

    Pleased to meet you: As soon as the baby is out, I’m going to admire my toes. Wriggle them and even say hello! Ditto for my lady parts, down south. It’s been a while since we made contact. I can’t wait.

    Wine-ing stroke: I miss my glass of full-bodied reds. The unopened bottle in our bar talks to me in my dreams. I’m going to breastfeed, so I can’t get smash drunk; but I’m definitely going to take a long swig—straight from the bottle—post-delivery.

    Bring on the chemicals! If I could, I’d make a beeline for the salon from the delivery room. To be honest, I wouldn't even mind having my manicurist, pedicurist and colourist in the delivery room with me. I miss my beauty treatments THAT much. I’m going to primp, preen, bleach, scrub and shine the first moment I can after delivering.

    Satin and lace: Right now, there’s something about my underwear that looks like it was borrowed from your 82-year-old grandmother’s bottom drawer. It works like a cold water shower to kill the most passionate ardour. I want my itty-bitty thongs. Now, where are the handcuffs, honey?

    Gymnastics in bed: I didn’t put myself through yoga for 10 whole years to make my peace with reverse cowgirl and woman on top! As soon as we can, there is going to be a fair bit of cavorting and calisthenics in our marital bed…and sofa…and divan…you get the idea, don’t you?

    Falling on the bed, face first: Pregnancy makes you realise and appreciate the TRULY important things in life. Like the gift of being able to sleep on your stomach. When this is over, I’m going to flop on my bed, like a dead log, without worrying about whether I land on my belly or back. Bliss.

    The spring in my step: Once upon a time, heads used to turn when I used to walk into a room in towering heels. These days, I waddle like Skipper, that penguin from Madagascar, in sneakers. I don’t know how or why my husband should find that sexy, but I HATE IT. I want to sway my hips and sashay across the across the hallway. Ahhh. Good times, those.

    Peeing in peace: Imagine the frustration of having to wake up five times in the middle of the night, waddling to the bathroom and then managing roughly three drops of pee. I hate the feeling of constantly wanting to pee and nothing ever coming out. So last on my list is peeing. A nice, hearty, jet. And then being sorted for at least four hours.

A Mommy-To-Be’s List Of Things She Misses From Her Pre-Pregnancy Days

2013-02-22 11:29:00 +0530

From favourite foods to favourite heels, here's a list of the things yowoto mothers missed while they were pregnant. Can you spot your own in the list?

Don't get me wrong, I love being pregnant. A girl could get used to the pampering and princess like treatment that she's privy to during pregnancy. No more queues-at the supermarket or outside the loo; free cookies at the coffee shop; strangers making way for you in a crowd…in some ways, it's a nine-month party. But I'd be lying if I say I don't miss my unpregnant self and life.
