For me, realizing that the highlight of my day was showering and dressing. Putting on socks? Putting on my own panties! I haven't needed help with such simple things since the Beatles had short hair!

Moisturizing the body after a nice hot shower - Man is it hard reaching the legs and feet

Turning on and off my portable heater - yes I am always cold! (I kinda miss the hot flashes. They only lasted 2 weeks post op)

Driving - I still haven't been released and I really don't have anyplace to go, but the thought that I don't have that freedom is driving me crazy

Having a BM - gotta be completely relaxed and remember not to strain, preparing yourself for pain or discomfort...Before you just went!

Sleeping at night - after a long day at work I'd fall asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. Now I'm up watching Golden Girls, lol!

Oh, how I missed sleeping on my belly. I couldn't even be on my side. My poor hubby barely fit in the bed with the pillow fort I built to get comfortable. A body pillow was such a great help at about 3 weeks. It supported my swelly belly very well. I also truly missed that first-thing-in-the-morning stretch. That stretch is almost, well it's really good : )
