Hi All,
I found out this morning that i'm pregnant again. My son, Thomas turned a year old on 26th Nov (same day new baby was conceived). Hubby and i are extremely happy and excited. I had a great pregnancy with Thomas, i loved every second of it. I had a tough time in the last 3 weeks thanks to my hips and SPD but i'm still really looking forward to having a chance to experience it again.
I was just wondering what you loved about being pregnant (like feeling baby kick) and what you didn't like so much (like not being able to paint your toe-nails or the morning sickness lol) xx

Congratulations on your second pregnancy! I loved just being able to be pregnant - we didn't think we were able to have children - that was the BEST part. The worst part for me was yes, the restless nights and definitely the swollen ankles - ugh!

My son Luke turned 1 on Nov.16 and I found out I was pregnant again at the beginning of December!! My husband and I are both excited and happy. I had a great pregnancy with Luke and am looking forward to feeling the baby kick and move around which is what I loved the most. What I don't like is the nausea I'm experiencing at the moment. Hopefully it will go away soon.

My one-year-old son was also born Nov. 26th :). I loved being pregnant with him. Just seeing my body change and knowing that there was a new little person growing inside me was amazing. Feeling him kick and roll around was always fun. I was lucky that I didn't have any morning sickness. Really, there were only a few things that bothered me. My nose seemed stuffy a lot in the second and third trimesters, and I also got nosebleeds occasionally (I'd never had one in my life prior to that). By the second trimester my hips and legs would ache at night, but a big body pillow helped a lot. I also got bad varicose (sp?) veins in one of my legs.

I loved being pregnant, the feeling of my body is making a little human being that we get the privledge of taking care of for the rest of our lives is exhilerating. I dont know if its the same with all pregnancys, but definatly being pregnant for teh first time is an eye opener and so fun. And yes the most unfun part was the aches and pains and the labour haha

I loved everything. I got lucky and had no morning sickness with any of mine. But i think the most favorite thing is when your baby starts kicking (well you start feeling it) because its like "oh there really is someone in there". the worst thing is the last month becasue to me it always felt like it was the whole 9 months in that just one month waiting to meet my little one.

I loved the kicking with my son! Some people say its annoying, but i really did not find it annoying at all! The worst part of that pregnancy was the hyperemesis (excessive vomitting) I was puking like 4 times a day until my ob/gyn put me on meds, and even after the meds I had quite a few bouts of nausea right up until the end! I am pregnant again and so far (2.5 months) I have only thrown-up once. So hopefully the random nauseous feelings i get will calm down over the next month!

I was very lucky with my first pregnancy. No morning sickness or anything. I had some swelling towards the end which was the worst part. The best of course was feeling my daughter and then seeing her for the first time on ultrasound. I'm pregnant again and am already having really bad morning sickness so that is something I deff. do not enjoy.

Same as the first post. I enjoyed feeling my daughters move and kick. It was a very unique feeling. Also the up every few hours having to pee in the middle of the night really stunk.

I can't really say much more morning sickness because I didn't have it quite so much. With my first daughter I think I got sick maybe 6 or 7 times. My youngest I only got sick once and that was at a Chili's restuarant. I was really craving a Chicken Fried Steak with mashed potatoes and cream gravy and yet after 3 bites my stomach said, "NO!"

What I did hate the most about being preggerz with my first daughter is I constantly had dizzy spells the first trimester. They were really scary just randomly feeling faint and collapsing. Also with my second what I hated most was my ankles and calves had swollen a lot and with the job I had I was constantly having to run here and there doing errands. So I was very uncomfortable the last few months with Stella.

I actually loved having the baby belly and feeling the baby kick, i loved just about everything except the being tired and waking up in the middle of the night because i had to pee so badly or i was so hungry that i had to eat something.
