I saw this question asked in another forum and decided that I would try asking everyone here.

What did you love about your July pregnancy?
What did you hate about your July pregnancy?

I loved whenever Adelyn got the hiccups and whenever she was really active and started moving a lot. It was a great feeling and I miss it terribly.

I hated being sick all the time during my first trimester, having kidney stones in my second trimester and lastly being huge during the summer months making the heat feel ten times worse during my last trimester. Made for a very uncomfortable pregnancy.

How about you ladies?

I loved only having to put newborn Mila in a onesie or mostly just being in a diaper. It's more fun to dress her up now that it's cooler and she's filled out. I loved that it was too hot outside to do anything, because she was too little to do outdoor activities with. She will be such a fun age for the holidays this year, and next summer she'll be plenty ready for kiddie pools, the zoo, ect.

I hated... not much really. It was easy to hide pre-bump bloating in the winter months, and it was a releif to be able to wear skirts and dresses once I got really huge. I would do another summer baby if I could.

I love that the IVF cycle worked.

Disliked carpal tunnel syndrome, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, morning sickness. To be honest, disliked pretty much all of it, I'm not an 'enjoy being pregnant' person, I'm more of a 'means to an end' pregnancy person.

What I liked: I liked the fact that by the time 3rd trimester came around, I was able to shed my winter jacket and wear lighter clothes and dresses. Also liked the fact that I could just leave Marcos in a onesie and not constantly fret over him being cold. It's also great that next summer, Marcos will be old enough to be walking about outside (hopefully).

What I didn't like: Being 2 weeks overdue during a massive heatwave - couldn't go anywhere cause I was uncomfortable and sweating like a pig. DS was still too small to go to any of the awesome summer events they have around the city. I was mostly at home all day with the A/C, hiding from the heat. I kind of feel like we skipped through the summer, and now it's fall already!

In retrospect, I hope next child will be born in early spring, like March or April. That way when summer starts he/she would be 3-4 months old and we could actually go places and enjoy the weather.

I'm not sure I truly hated anything. It was annoying to have to buy bottled water constantly because our tap water made me vomit (stopped immediately after she was born). Having to get IV fluids because it was so hot was a bummer.

I honestly loved almost everything. Feeling her move, having a bump, sleeping like a normal person, seeing her on ultrasound, being able to wear sandals all the time, the emotional steadiness and happiness, the carefree feeling (up until bf got fired), getting things ready..

I don't know that I hated anything. Sure things were annoying. Like how bad my legs and hips hurt but I truly made sure I enjoyed every part about my pregnancy bc it was my last.

Thank you Quantum_Leap for my fabulous signature!!!

Argh, yes! Passing out on the train during a heatwave and having to go to hospital was not a good moment.

I loved being able to wear tank tops and flip flops while being hugely pregnant and hot!
And being able to swim!

I hated trying to get comfortable to sleep at the end and being 2 weeks overdue
