You're reaching closer to the end of your pregnancy and I bet you're feeling reflective right? Reflective of the life you're leaving behind, but also reflective of your pregnancy journey. Your body has gone through a really difficult, but inspirational time during your pregnancy and whether you've enjoyed it or not I bet there are elements of your pregnancy you'll miss... And also elements you won't miss!
With that in mind here's a tongue in cheek list of things I bet you won't miss. A list of things that instantly become more difficult in the third trimester!
