    First half was so slow for me because I didn’t want to tell anyone until 12-13 weeks so that was torture, and I was so nervous some gong would go wrong, and I didn’t feel great and just looked bloated.  I had my anatomy scan around 22 weeks and that’s also when I started to really show a cute bump and it started to feel real.  At that point it zoomed by until 35 weeks. But from then until the end felt like an eternity lol.

    The last 20 weeks went by way slower to me. I did not have very bad morning sickness in the beginning so it seemed to go by quickly. I got diagnosed with gestational diabetes at 29 weeks which made it super difficult. I would say the last 4 weeks were the longest. I was also pregnant during the summer and I was pretty miserable the last few weeks. I went 3 days past my due date. With saying all this, I still hope you can enjoy the pregnancy as much as possible. Now that my baby is 7 months old I miss being pregnant. Weird how that works! LOL

    hollyberry4 :  I found out realllllly early at 3.4 weeks pregnant, so the first 20 weeks were LONG. Baby came at 37 weeks, so I never got that “done” feeling towards the end.

    Like a lot of other ladies said, the first seems slow b/c you are anxious and we didn’t tell anyone until at least 10 weeks.  However the last month seemed to drag on forever b/c you get big and tired and there isn’t much you can do.  I was so dang bored!  Especially by week 38 when I couldn’t make it to the gym anymore.  I hate sitting around doing nothing, so that was the worst for me!
