Everything! This is my first, probably my only since it was a 10 year battle to finally get here. Unless a miracle happens after this baby is born and we get one natural, but I'm doubting it. I love watching my belly get bigger. I love waking up in the morning and feeling a little bit nauseous until I eat. I love it when hubby asks "How are my babies?" and then kisses my belly to say hello to Boo. I love it all!!

Ugh- not much. I love babies sooo much and I am grateful that I am pregnant but gosh do I hate being pregnant. Now, I keep doing it so obviously I love the outcome more than I hate the process...
I love hearing the heartbeat, love baby kicks, and love finding out the gender and talking to my baby by name. I love that moment after you give birth when you get to see your baby for the first time. And, there is nothing that explains the bond that pregnancy creates- I don't think it would be the same if someone else carried my baby for nine months! I also love sharing my pregnancy with my other kids- with my second my oldest used to walk around and tell people "we're having a Bianca" lol
My most favorite thing is how DH acts. He just does such an awesome job. I love how he bonds with the baby ahead of time by rubbing my belly, talking to the baby, and kissing the baby belly. And the nicknames he comes up with.
Second favorite thing - feeling the baby wiggle around (not quite there yet this time though).
I love feeling the flutters and kicks, until the end and they're up in my ribs! I also love my belly from about 4-8 months. I almost feel more confident cause I don't have to suck in but my butt and face aren't huge yet!
Thank you Vicki... For the adorable siggy!
Movement is the only thing I truly enjoy, except when they're ramming their head or feet into my cervix, haha! I honestly HATE being pregnant, because I swear that I literally get every horrible symptom anyone has ever said might occur during pregnancy. Daily vomiting, constant nausea, backaches, migraines, horrible RLP, sciatica pain, hips that slide out of place, dizziness - you name it, I've experienced it, lol. But the baby at the end makes it all worth it.
As cheesy as it sounds, just knowing that I have have this little miracle growing inside of me... I have PCOS, Endo and don't ovulate.... and DF has beaten Cancer 3 times and we did this all on our own... we are truly blessed to have this child coming into the world
So far, not being in fertility treatment. The emotional toll of that was so much worse than any of the physical discomfort of the first trimester. Finally knowing that I can actually get pregnant is such a load off my mind.
Baby hiccups (and other movements). Seriously, by the end this is also one of the MOST annoying things lol. Nothing like being woke up in the middle of the night at 39 weeks when your baby starts to hiccup.
