How far along are you? What is the hardest part of your pregnancy? What is your favorite thing about being pregnant?

I am 21 weeks 3 days. The hardest part of my pregnancy is that I was rear ended 2 weeks before I got pregnant and have a herniated disk in my back and it's getting worse the further along I get. My favorite thing is feeling the baby move first thing in the morning and before I go to sleep and taking to my son about how he is going to be a big brother.

when i was pregnant was being dietabetic. i could not bring myself to check my sugar. it took me the first time ten minutes. after that it was easy. having grouping strep cause i would have to have meds during labor. i don't like i-v, after having it in my skin for a while i forgot it was there. having to be labor for 28 hours with no food. i was induce and i hated that the most. i went 20 hours with no painkillers. that was after being already induce for four hours.

Im about 17 weeks or so. We will kno for sure on the 11th and what were having as well! The hardest part is this lil one thinks my bladder and nerve endings are the place to sit and it hurts and trying to get our 17month old to understand that it hurts for me to pick her up. the best thing is feeling the baby move around inside me and hearing the heart beat when we go to the midwives.

I am 35 weeks 4 days today
Least favorite with this pregnancy is the heartburn/acid reflux and not sleeping well because I can't get comfy. As well as the braxton hicks now turning into real labor contractions on and off.
Favorite is watching my daughter who is 18 and a half months old, run to my belly and pick up my shirt and give her brother a hug in my belly. We are naming him Cooper and she can't quite say it so she says goober haha. He has a nickname with his big sis already :) I love laying down and watching him roll around and kick and stretch!

I miss that bonding of the baby in my tummy when they are born. They are with us for so many months 24/7 that not feeling those kicks and moves is odd. haha

I thought of another thing that I love while reading these. when I ask my son 'where's the baby' and he lifts up his shirt and rubs his tummy and says baby then he points at my husband's tummy and says baby :)

I'm 32wks + 2 days...nothing really too hard, I'm pretty lucky with my pregnancies. But this heatwave we have at the moment is making it almost impossible to sleep and get into a semi-comfortable position. And heartburn in the middle of the night is so irratating.
Favourite part: feeling & seeing him/her move and asking our 16mth old son where the baby is, he then pokes my belly button and kisses my tummy :-D

not really hard, but annoying to try and get comfortable sleeping this time for some reason.
favorite part is the kicks. always has been. now my other kids come over, pull the shirt up and kiss and sing to little sis. Love that part too!

I'm 36 weeks today
Hardest-HEARTBURN, and leg cramps ...(and to be blunt-yeast infections)
Best-watching/feeling her move, seeing her on the sono, my hubby rubbing my tummy (and scratching the strechmarks lol)
our son laughing when she "kicks" him in the side lol.

I am 21 3 days weeks pregnant too! I have to say the hardest part about being pregnant is sciatica and having to still carry my son (he is 1) around. My favorite thing is watching her kick around whatever i put on my stomach and when my son giggles when she kicks him if he is sitting on me.
