Just wait until you hit your third, time stops moving completely. Ha!

It basically stops moving when you hit about week 30

I hope it stops moving, because I’m 32 weeks and I have soooo much to do still! Both at work and in my personal life! 🙀

I thought it went slowly at first, but now it’s zooming by.

I felt like it was foreverrrrrrrr until we hit viability. Then I was full-term in the blink of an eye. But after week 37, each day felt like 82 years. Baby came at 38+4 so at least I didn’t have to wait too long!

I’m currently 21 weeks and it’s going by fast this year. Like really fast… Sometimes I can’t believe there is 4 months left. Still have quite a bit to do but really excited to meet my baby boy

I’m almost 12 weeks but I already feel like I’ve been pregnant forever! I think because I’m so impatient to start showing more, to find out the baby’s sex, to start feeling kicks…

No, with all the illness, I felt like I was pregnant for years.

I have found the opposite! Lots of anxious waiting for milestones, especially vitality. Then again, I am high risk and have a cerclage in because of previous 2nd trimester losses. I have been loving being off work however and in that respect things have gone fast. DH and I have decided to start getting serious about planning things once I (hopefully) hit 30 weeks in 3 weeks. I am starting to miss going out on the weekends. I like seeing friends, but standing for ages with my back hurting, watching everyone having drinks isn’t so much fun.

I felt I was pregnant for 50 years. It was miserable.

First half dragged… Morning sickness, tired, and just lumpy looking.

Then I started to look a bit more pregnant, feel kicks, work on the nursery, etc.. and this past month has definitely gone much more quickly! We’ll see how long this “quick” stage lasts before it’s back to dragging.

My baby girl is 10 days old today, arrived at 37+0. I found pregnancy has  just flown by!! Despite being categorised high risk at 30+0 (iugr baby) time has flown between week 30 to 37! I absolutely LOVED being pregnant, lol. I hope this will be the case for number #2 as well.

lunation :  I feel the same way! I am almost 25 weeks and I keep thinking the time is flying!! I thought it would go slow but I think you are right there is so much to do and think about!

It crawled until around week 20, by which point I was pretty much over morning sickness and a lot less concerned about miscarriage. Now (26 weeks) I feel like it’s kinda flying by, but I imagine the last month or two will drag again.
