Lovely big belly

Isn't it lovely having a nice big belly with a little person living inside?

It's also lovely not having periods, and having nice shiny hair for a change.

Is anyone else here enjoying their pregnancy?

smile I love the kicking and movement and the amazing bond that only my son and I will ever share of growing a baby . . .

I also love the interest that other people pay in my pg and how kind others can be and the conversations I can share with strangers about it.

I love the sense of anticipation and excitement about the impending arrival.

However, as an SPD sufferer I find some aspects of pg quite hard and I do look longingly at those women who just seem to 'glow' when pg and make it all look so easy!

However, I'm pg with DS2 now and would still love more, so even the pain hasn't put me off smile.

although I can always find something to moan about (insomnia! weird dreams! sciatica!) in pregnancy, actually.... everyone and i mean EVERYONE is telling me how 'glowing' I am everywhere I go (?!), my hair DOES feel nice and shiny and my skin has never been so clear (Haven't gone near foundation for 5 months!) and I DO love not having periods also, the excitment and kindness abounding is lovely...so it looks like I AM enjoying the whole thing, indeed thanks mama for making me think about it.

I was thinking this just the other day. I spend too much time moaning about being pregnant but actually it is lovely not having periods and I adore feeling the baby wriggle.

I am also happy that I still have cheekbones, despite my mother assuring me they would vanish under a layer of pregnancy blubber at about 16 weeks grin

smile It is lovely to stop and think about the positives sometimes!

This is my third and last baby so I'm really trying hard to enjoy the big belly and not moan too much!

smile I am glad you posted this. I'm 25 weeks. i LOVE being pregnant (it's my third time now). I LOVE LOVE my bump, the smooth roundness of it, the way the rest of my body looks so slim and tidy, even my big ass looks positively pert in comparison. I am lucky enough to have nice 'neat' bumps, which obv helps.. I love my thick shiny hair, my glowing skin, my FAB big boobs (usually I am a pancake sad), feeling the baby move inside me.. I love it all, and find that whilst pregnant, I wear far more revealing and sexy clothes than I do when NOT pregnant. Not slutty, I just maybe make more effort, wearing heels and skirts to work (the glowing skin and boobs again, helps)and shorts/camis at home. Yep, I love it. The sciatica and general tiredness are a literal pain in the hole, but generally, it's fab being pregnant. I'm one sexy moma at the mo!grin

erm... I'm trying to appreciate my lovely big belly! It's massive and I'm still not quite 12 weeks. Unfortunately I'm also still feeling terrible - nauseous and no energy at all, look like poo and am living in a tip because I can't get anything done. But your post is about what I'm looking forward to and hoping to have asap.

It is very nice not having to hold my belly in or worry about whether I've got a muffin top. And I like the fact that I already look obviously pg, not just fat.

Oh, I have had heartburn and nightmares and constipation with the rest of them... you may also remember my 'enormous breasts' thread (they are now an unmanageable J-cup). I'm itchy and veiny all over and regularly fall asleep at my desk.

But I just can't get over the wonder and novelty of having the miracle of life inside me. My own little companion who comes everywhere with me. A whole new person living in my belly. It's just about the best feeling in the world. I might even feel a little bit sad when January comes and I have to share him/her with everyone else.

(DISCLAIMER: It may be possible that I am slightly hormonal. But I like it!)

Ooh, yes yes yes!

It's been absolutely the most special time of my life, and one I thought I would never get the chance to experience (and by extension, one I won't be able to experience again).

From the first tiny fish-in-tummy scrabbles to having a tiny little foot poking out of your sides (not to mention a whole bum) - it's just amazing.

And the hair! the skin!

The random conversations, the special looks from other women, the feeling you're not on your own,

Poor, poor men not having this - I just hope their willies are sufficient consolation grin.
