What a cool thread! I am trying to drink in every moment of this pregnancy, so I am sure I will miss a lot more than what I end up typing here. My last pregnancy I remember quite a bit, but there is so much about this one that seems new, even though I know they all did similar things. I think the biggest thing about this one is how I look and feel. With my boys I always gained a lot of weight, DS1 was about 50lbs. DS2 was around 70lbs and DS3 was 65lbs... As of Wednesday with this one I have gained 35lbs, and I gotta say, it feels great! I am carrying her totally different, all up front like a basketball, were as my boys I carried all over. I actually feel sexy this time, albeit much of that has to do with DP and how he has enjoyed my growing bump at all stages and always thinks I'm sexy.
I will miss my belly, even though the past week its been hard to get out of bed, off the couch, put away the dishes, etc... You know! But still, I love this bump, and I love her moving around inside me, even when it hurts sometimes because she pushes so hard, I still just love the feeling! And like Delilahbeau said, the tooshie sticking out of my upper left side constantly will surely be missed, by me and DP. He really loves to feel her moving around and will sit on couch watching TV with me and have his hands on my belly for an hour at a time. Its like bonding for him.
Another thing I will miss so much, is how she reacts to me pushing on her. I will push back at her, and I can grab at her feet/knees/hips and she will respond. I also will rub my belly and she will push her butt out against my hand super hard, its wicked cool! It's like she is enjoying the massage..
Sunshine also mentioned the love she feels, and I can completely relate to that feeling. I feel so in love with this baby, just deeply in love with her. I don't know how much of it has to do with the relationship I have with her father, but I can only guess when two people are madly in love with one another, and then they make a baby, it is just an extension of that sea of love. DP has said before and I agree, that this is our love child... So true! I remember being in love with my boys, but the bond seemed to be strengthened with the hormones after birth, whereas with this one I feel like I have been drinking that hormone cocktail through out this entire pregnancy.
And with that being said.... I can't wait to meet her!!!
