This is such a great post ๐Ÿ™‚

-I love having full breasts. I am also normally a 32/34 A so to fill a B cup is awesomesauce!

-I love pregnancy hair!

-I can’t wait to start feeling movement. That is what I loved most about being pregnant with DD!!

Overall I really love being able to experience this with someone I love!! Being pregnant alone is not as much fun. No one to turn to when you are down or be super excited with over silly milestones. It makes the bad seem not as bad ๐Ÿ™‚

All the movements and thuds! Oh my goodness! It’s only been a week or two of feeling them but it makes me so happy every time I feel something! I’ll be 20 weeks tomorrow. I’ve always had a hunch for a while where I thought I was feeling something and it was just confirmed by ultrasound last week that is where her feet are hanging. So now that I know it is her, I’m so excited! Darling Husband isn’t the most sympatheic and attentive as I’d like but when he does simple things like worry if I’m lifting something too heavy it makes me happy. Also just hearing her talk about her and saying her name just gives me butterflies!

howsweetitis:  Dude, I dunno. I find pregnancy sex REALLY uncomfortable.

The best part is knowing I’m growing our son! And we’re going to get to meet him, and he’ll be OURS to take home! TBH though I’ve had a really easy breezy pregnancy (knock on wood): no MS, no real exhaustion, just a bit more tired…getting pregnant was really hard for us, but apparently my body likes it now that it’s here.

I’m only almost 8 weeks, so still early. But I love that I got to see my baby’s heartbeat. And the morning sickness isn’t nearly as bad as I was expecting. Not great, but I haven’t thrown up or had to miss any work. So that is good. And I’m greatful that this is a healthy pregnancy so far. Considering I MC’d my last. Also, Darling Husband has been amazingly helpful and understanding of my exhaustion and pickyness of food.

The positive is that I have a (so far) healthy baby. Physically and emotionally this pregnancy has been utterly miserable and it’s been really difficult to be excited and happy because I truly really dislike being pregnant. I love my baby, but this has really not been a pleasant experience. It makes me nervous because we would like at least two children and the thought of doing this again makes me want to cry. I always had very rough periods and PMS, so I think my body is just very sensitive to reproductive hormones.

Currently 24 weeks + 4 days and I’ve had a very easy pregnancy so far. Just a little nausea and fatigue earlier on in the pregnancy and some round ligament pain. My favorite thing is definitely feeling and seeing my little guy move. Plus my nails have never been this strong in my life! And definitely the boobs – I’m normally a 32/34 AA, so it’s really great to be at a B cup now! Darling Husband is definitely loving it

saratiara2:  Same here! Sex is just too uncomfortable, I’m glad Darling Husband has never pushed for sex, he knows how sick/uncomfortable I am. I can probably count on one hand the number of times we’ve had sex since I got pregnant I was on pelvic rest until the end of the first trimester due to my history of recurrent pregnancy loss and then I started feeling more sick to even think about it, poor DH!

The best part of pregnancy for me has been seeing my bump grow bigger and know that I’m carrying and nourishing my baby. Due to my annoying anterior placenta, at 30 weeks I can barely feel movement, I’m so jealous of all of you ladies that can experience strong movement, so for me seeing my big bump is reassurance that baby is growing healthy.
After 7 early losses, I never thought I would experience this, so I feel extremely grateful despite the all day nausea (morning sickness, or more accurately all day sickness, never stopped for me), back pain, lack of sleep, etc. Pregnancy hasn’t been easy on my body and there are days that I feel like crap and complain to Darling Husband about everything pregnancy related hahaha

I get a baby at the end… That’s really the only upside right now for me.  

 

I have debilitating SI joint pain and at 34 weeks I just can’t wait for it to be over.  I had to buy myself a cane yesterday because I literally can’t walk without it and if one more person tells me “it’s normal, you just have to learn to work around it” I really might scream.  

 

My husband is starting to get excited so that’s a positive, and in just 3 more weeks our little man will be considered full term, and I really can’t wait for him to be OUT of me! I’d be perfectly happy with a baby born at 37/38 weeks!

Definitely Darling Husband. He is even more attentive than usual, so sweet, so happy & so tolerant of my hormonal meltdowns. I’ve been on and off modified bedrest for weeks due to a sub-chorionic bleed and he has shopped, cooked, everything. My first pregnancy craving was a strawberry milk shake in the middle of the night and (true story), he called McDonalds to ask them to stay open 5 more minutes so he could get there. They were the first people he told LOL. They took one look at him when he got there and asked, is your wife pregnant. I’m enjoying the hair and nails, too (when I’m not throwing up ๐Ÿ˜‰

How has no one mentioned that they no longer get AF every month!  And if you Boyfriend or Best Friend it’s longer.  When I had my son I made it to CD 519 before my cycle returned.
