Hey, I'm currently 17 weeks pregnant and time is going too slow, what can I do to make it go faster? I just can't wait until I can hold my baby in arms and to just watch them grow.
Any advice?

I think the most AMAZING thing in the world is pregnancy. I absolutely loved being pregnant. It was such a joy to know I had another living being growing inside me! Don't wish it all away. Once your little one is here, you will miss being pregnant. I had my first baby 6 weeks ago, and I miss it so much. I miss feeling her kick me, and move around. I'm not going to lie, it did annoy me at times, but I miss it.

take up these girls on their suggestions, really! i guarantee u will miss all the movements inside ur belly afterwards. my daughter is almost 15 months & the kicks & wiggles were the FIRST thing i really missed about being pregnant. there were tons of things that drove me crazy about being pregnant but afterwards the kicks & wiggles i really missed. now what i really miss is how tiny she was. she could fit in one arm now she's half as tall as me almost! i look at the little bitty preemie outfit she could fit in & the toddler clothes she's in now and say "can you believe she was THAT small?!" lol i also miss the quiet time! lol i could go for a walk, read a book, watch a movie or a tv show without hearing screaming or needing a babysitter lol enjoy it all while it lasts cuz it seems like forever while its happening but after you've had ur baby it'll feel like it went by too fast. the years after go by quick to. on my daughter's first bday she started running around the house & me & my fiancé looked at her then looked at each other & said "can you believe its been a whole year already? it seems like just yesterday we brought her home from the hospital..." =]

When i was pregnant i started to make a baby book, putting in it pictures of my growing bump and my scan pictures. It really made me look forward to the next month when my bump was bigger, and it also made time go faster :)

Plus you can write down all your thoughts about your growing baby and any baby names you might have,

Its a great keepsake for when they are older and can see what you went through as they were snug in your belly

Hey, thanks everyone for your advice.
I do love the feeling of my little one moving inside me and all that, it's just sometimes I wish I could eat a packet of crisps without vomiting them back up. x]
I know in the end it'll all be worth it however and I just can't wait to meet them. :) ♥

I worked while I was pregnant w/my son up until 4 days before I was induced (only because my manager wouldn't let me work any longer..) that really helped to make time go faster, but holy cows those last 4 days till my induction seemed to take FOREVER! Find a hobby, arts, crafts, baby book...

lol...don't wish it all away!!!

I know it may seem like this'll take forever, but it'll go quicker than you realize. Enjoy the time now as bonding time with your and your baby. This is a special time that you're NEVER get back with your child. Sing, talk, read stories. Rub your tummy, and send loving thoughts. It's a beautiful time to share with your child.

I missed out on the first 6months of my first pregnancy and I SOOOOO regret not having that time. I'm doing everything I can now with my second that I'd wished I'd been able to do with my first.

If you need something to occupy your time though, I'd suggest to find a hobby. Take up knitting, sewing, puzzles, etc. Nothing labor intensive and something you can do right up till the end with the big belly :P Find something you enjoy and go with it.
Maybe start taking a walk every evening.

Good luck with your little one on the way :D
