Just knowing that I had a little one inside me growing that was a part of me and my husband was the best feeling for me. I also loved many, many other things but that's the one thing that comes to mind always.
My favorite thing has been getting away with not having to do any hard, strenuous work and having my b/f cater to me...lol No, but really my fav thing was the first everything...First time I got to hear the heart beat, the first time I got to see my little beaner on the u/s, the first kick, the first braxton hicks contraction...
Yup the first everything. I'm also really enjoying my cravings. I've never been able to get away with consuming so much milk, hotdogs, Gobstoppers, and cookies and then some more milk ever in my life!!!
My favorite so far was hearing the news that my baby is healthy. I am older and also had complications with my first pregnancy. After that I am feeling my little one move around all the time and now I can see him moving around in there.
OMG that is soooo funny! Seriously, the same thing was happening to me at first (even after the violent nausia passed)...I was craving watermelon, grapes, oranges and salad. I was like, "what is wrong with this kid!!" but then all of a sudden, one day, I woke up and was just dying for a hotdog with onions and mustard. I can't explain how badly I would have killed to get that burning onion taste in my mouth! Weird...and the milk thing kicked one day all of a sudden too...I was absolutely grossed out about it at first (like to the point where if it even touched my lips, I would barf instantly), but then just one day, BOOM!! I WANT MILK AND I WANT IT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW! (that still hasn't subsided! I could drink and drink and drink and it's still not enough! Two 4L in two days....all to me....hmmmmmm Can you say addicted!!!!???)
Hope the little one decides one day you need lots of chocolate cake and fries!!! mmmmmmm chocolate!
I have to agree with you brigitte, I love the "firsts". This is both mine and dh's first child and experiencing it with him is great because he is just as excited as I am. And the whole milk thing, yeah, I never drank it before I was poregnant, then I started to buy whole milk and now I drink 4 to 5 glasses a DAY!!!!! It is just soooooo good and it soothes the heartburn!
I agree, I loved feeling him move around inside me (even when it hurt). Also the look on my fiance's face the first time he felt him move and the moment we found out we were having a boy--both of these happened to be the same day! I really miss feeling a human being growing inside me but I'm so glad he's here. I love him more than anything and can't wait to do it all again!
Newbaby2006....your baby is absolutely beautiful! What a lovely pic!
I like feeling the baby move - that's the best part of being pregnant.
Right now I hate my pregnancy. I can't eat what I want, I have gestational diabetes, I have to test my blood sugar 4 times a day and eat at certian times...I hate it. My foods are so limited...mostly proteins. I'm so distraught over the whole thing that half the time I eat only because I have to...I could care less about food. I'm fighting with my weight...so far I'm 5 mos preggers and have gained a whole 2 pounds.
I'm in constant pain, my hypothyroidism goes up and down, and I have to work every day since I'm the only bread winner in my family.
I'm constantly worried about the baby since I have a 1/40 chance of it getting downs (nope, I don't know the sex) - and I'm worried because I wasn't taking my hypothyroidism pills when I should have been when I got pregnant.
I LOVED being pregnant when I was 20....now that I'm 37 it has been very difficult to deal with.
Yea, baby's doing great....it's mom that's having all the trouble.
I love my 3 girls and little boy:
Mom to Jessica - 19 yrs old, Amber - 18 yrs old, Sebastian - 2 months
I do love to feel him kick for the most part...just not when Im trying to sleep. But my favorite thing is being pampered and not having to do hard work Im going to take full advantage of it while I have an excuse!!!!
