  • I'd like a heating pad right now. On delivery day I'd say my fave food I couldn't have or keep down throughout my pregnancy. When I delivered my son my mom bought me Mcdonald's nuggets and frys and tartar sauce along with a huge diet pepsi..yay! While staying in the hospital, junk food, magazines, puzzle books, lotion. After home, bath and body products so I could take nice relaxing baths.

  • Sleep. LOL I wish I had sleep. I couldn't sleep my last few months. I know that's not what you're looking for, but that's my answer. =)

  • are you looking for gift ideas? post partum i had to go buy tucks and breast pads so those would be a good thing for a gift. also overnight pads. my husband had to go out and get these things because i just had never thought of things like that beforehand

  • PILLOWS! I have wanted more & more pillows this whole pregnancy! More so than just pillows, I've wanted that maternity pillow (the body pillow that curves) because I heard it's great for breastfeeding, too. Never got around to getting one though, but I'm sure I will next time around hehe!

  • oh i absolutley loved bananas, and more bananas. i had like 5 bananas a day. including all the fruit i could eat. i think when you are pregnant everything tastes better. i wish i would've had more ice cream but i didnt want to gain tons of weight considering i was carrying twins. comfortable shoes made to order for me because i had the worst time finding shoes that would fit my giant feet. i never did i had to wear horrible sandals that i threw away as soon as i gave birth.lol

  • I just wanted a nice nightgown that fit around my belly. Hubbies t-shirts just didn't make me feel very attractive.

  • I would say pedicures! Especially now that I can't even reach my feet without feeling like I'm being cut in half! Besides that some caffeine!! But that one is a regular wish/want as well seeing as how I can't have it for medical reasons... big bummer!
