How do you feel? Pretty good, all told. RLP is starting to kick my butt, and heartburn stinks, but otherwise I feel pretty normal.
So far do you LOVE being pregnant, hate it with the fire of a thousand suns or somewhere in the middle? Somewhere in the middle, but definitely on the side of loving it.
What do you look forward to most about having this baby/ not being pregnant anymore? Being able to bend over!!! lol
What do you dread? I'm nervous once they are born that I'll be so sleep deprived I won't be as good a mom for my DS. I love him so much, but I know when I'm tired I get short-tempered. I don't want him to remember the first year of his siblings' lives as the year Mama was mean.
Worst symptom so far? RLP! There are some days I can barely move. Lol.
Best side effect of pregnancy? The babies. Lol.
What will you miss most after baby is Born? Feeling them move and kick! It's so fun.

How do you feel? Pretty good for the most part, just a few aches and pains once in a while
So far do you LOVE being pregnant, hate it with the fire of a thousand suns or somewhere in the middle?Love it most of the time. There are times when I don't love it so much, but they are pretty brief.
What do you look forward to most about having this baby/ not being pregnant anymore? hmmm... well, I would say sleeping, but that's not gonna happen for a while anyway LOL. Probably just being able to see/hold my baby
What do you dread?Nothing really..
Worst symptom so far?I've been having some pelvic pain recently, nothing too bad, Chiro thinks it's a tendon in my groin that is under strain. It only bugs me on occasion though
Best side effect of pregnancy?LOVE feeling the baby move (most of the time haha)
What will you miss most after baby is Born? Baby moving

What do you dread? I am not fond of bleeding for weeks on end....

Worst symptom so far? Having to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes, when you share one bathroom with a dozen people

Best side effect of pregnancy? I love feeling baby moving, its my special time with her, these months.

I'm happy being pregnant. Yes, I'm in pain and it's not going "perfect" or smoothly, but overall, I'm enjoying being pregnant--the cute pregnant belly, the baby moving, the TIME to finish preparing (wish I was going to be pregnant longer so I could have more of this precious time...). I have my gripes--insane weight gain that doesn't seem to be deterred by any amount of dietary changes or exercise, excessive swelling, severe pain (from swelling and other issues). But despite that I hate those symptoms, and despite pregnancy being the cause of those symptoms, I still love being pregnant right now.

How do you feel? For the most part, I feel great, aside from my bone/hip/spd pain.
So far do you LOVE being pregnant, hate it with the fire of a thousand suns or somewhere in the middle? I love it, it wouldn't be my 5 baby (9th pregnancy) if I didn't
What do you look forward to most about having this baby/ not being pregnant anymore? Seeing her sweet face and seeing her interact with her siblings, especially her big sister who has waited for a very long time for her
What do you dread? The after mess yuck from delivery and my body getting back to normal.
Worst symptom so far? The SPD
Best side effect of pregnancy? The growing belly
What will you miss most after baby is Born? My belly, having her to myself and feeling her move/kick.

What do you dread? Never sleeping again lol

Worst symptom so far? Hip/back/leg pain

Best side effect of pregnancy? Great skin & hair.

Let's commiserate:

How do you feel?
I hate this question! I'm hating being pregnant this time which then makes me feel guilty! Round ligament pain, sciatic pain, pelis pain, itch ess from the Icp, can't sleep, tons of Braxton hicks! Is it time to deliver yet?

So far do you LOVE being pregnant, hate it with the fire of a thousand suns or somewhere in the middle?
Hate it, love feeling her move, but that's about it.

What do you look forward to most about having this baby/ not being pregnant anymore?
Everything! Not being in pain! Seeing her!

What do you dread?
The csection and then no sleep for a year or two

Worst symptom so far?
How can I pick one? I'd have to say the itchiness from the Icp, it's like poison ivy on steroids!

Best side effect of pregnancy?
Feeling baby move. Having an excuse to be lazy, haha.

What will you miss most after baby is Born?
Feeling her kick

How do you feel? Good minus the mood swings! I get pissy for no reason and have the shortest fuse lately >_<

So far do you LOVE being pregnant, hate it with the fire of a thousand suns or somewhere in the middle? I would say I was more loving it than somewhere in the middle It has it's bad times which are expected of course like the irritability, my leg issues, sleeping becoming more of a chore it seems like lol but on the other hand I love how sweet BF has been to me and the extra attention :-P Plus nothing beats feeling the little wiggle worm in there!

What do you look forward to most about having this baby/ not being pregnant anymore? Being able to sleep however I want! Granted there won't be much sleeping but still... lol also finally being able to meet her and hold her!!

What do you dread? The unknown... this is going to be our first so it's exciting but also terrifying!

Worst symptom so far? My leg issue... ugh it's so frustrating not being able to stand or walk for more than a few minutes without it feeling like fire or constant bee stings >_<

Best side effect of pregnancy? Ummm can I say none? My hair is limp and curless so I didn't get that luxury lol I guess I would say my cute, smaller than average baby bump?

What will you miss most after baby is Born? It just being BF and I, I wish we would have had more time for that before we started a family but she is still a blessing either way And I'll miss my gaming days... LOL! No more gaming all day and into the night with BF

How do you feel? Sometimes okay but mainly pelvic and crotch pain (lovely). Getting pretty stiff and big. Not sleeping through the night. Heartburn should be coming anytime soon now.

So far do you LOVE being pregnant, hate it with the fire of a thousand suns or somewhere in the middle? More dislikes than likes. Too much pressure. Must not eat this, must not do this, be careful with this, can't enjoy what you love... (exercise wise)
What do you look forward to most about having this baby/ not being pregnant anymore? Getting "myself back". by this I mean, beign able to start doing some stuff for myself and not being on constant kid duty. (I do realize this will take a few years).
What do you dread? Being tired- my poor oldest. I am afraid I will be snappy and short tempered with him.
Worst symptom so far? Crotch and pelvic pain.
Best side effect of pregnancy? Nobody looks twice if you have a second dessert. They offer you a second because "youi're eating for 2!"
What will you miss most after baby is Born? Baby kicking.

How do you feel? Tired but in a good mood about things. I'm pretty much always exhausted, so I can't accomplish much, though.
So far do you LOVE being pregnant, hate it with the fire of a thousand suns or somewhere in the middle? I am enjoying it. I like the excitement.
What do you look forward to most about having this baby/ not being pregnant anymore? Sleeping comfortably, even if just for short spurts
What do you dread? I'm not sure
Worst symptom so far? Heartburn and related things.
Best side effect of pregnancy? The excitement.
What will you miss most after baby is Born? I'm not sure yet

How do you feel? I feel very pregnant and out of room
So far do you LOVE being pregnant, hate it with the fire of a thousand suns or somewhere in the middle? Im somewhere in the middle. I dont mind it but kind of ready to be done. I do enjoy people being more friendly to the pregnant lady, though.
What do you look forward to most about having this baby/ not being pregnant anymore? I look forward to being able to have a full range of movement and being able to get out of bed easily.
What do you dread? I dread recovery.. I have no idea what to expect. Of course, the thought of labor is a little scary, too.
Worst symptom so far? A couple days ago I would have said heartburn every couple of days.. but I got the absolute worst leg cramp Sunday morning and I am still in pain It lasted a full five minutes (between the snooze in my alarm) and tightened soooo hard Im pretty sure some muscle tore.
Best side effect of pregnancy? I think that is also nice people around. People really are a million times nicer to pregnant people.
What will you miss most after baby is Born? I will miss the little wiggles that almost tickle from the inside. Those make me smile. Not so much the ones that jab.
