I have definitely hit the blissfully pregnant phase of this pregnancy (not sure I ever really experienced it last time with my twin pregnancy). I'm tired, but I've gotten a burst of great nesty-creative energy that keeps me smiling and motivated. I love feeling my babe wiggle and kick all day long. I love looking obviously pregnant and getting smiles everywhere I go, BUT not being uncomfortable yet do to my belly size. I don't feel particuarly sick or especially hungry, and eating is a mostly pleasant experience! I am getting really excited for this baby, and everyone says I am glowing. . .

Aside from the horrendous heartburn, I think I could happily be 21 weeks pregnant forever. . .

I'm in a good place myself at 20 weeks, I haven't gained as much weight yet as the last one, still wearing regular pants, no more constipation (thank goodness: )No more tired beyond belief & nauseaus! and lets not forget No period to deal with that is one of the sweetest parts of being preggo

I too just looooove that wiggly kicking throughout the day. I'm enjoying them now before they get too fierce and up into my ribs and all.

Lex, at this stage did you notice a whole lot more kicking when you had twins? I'm curious as to how twins would feel as compared to a singleton.

I am loving having no period! I guess the bleeding after the birth is a consequence of all of these period free months.

Actually, I feel this baby a whole lot more than I felt the twins. It could partially be because I was working (as a kindergarten teacher) last time when I was pregnant, and never got the chance to sit down. I think all that movement kept the babies sleeping or something. I swear this current growing babe NEVER sleeps!! I feel him at least once an hour for a good 5-10 minutes (often every minute!), and whenever I wake up at night, he's thumping away. I'm a little nervous about what this might mean for after he comes out!

With the twins, I did feel movement in very different places at the same time (i.e. lower left and upper right both kicking), whereas with this baby I notice that movements tend to be kept to one area and then move to another area. I also think this baby has a lot more room to be kicking about since he's got my stretched-out uterus all to himself!

The no-period thing is definitely another lovely aspect of being pregnant, although I have quite enough other stuff dripping out of me (TMI) to make me *really* look forward to the breastfeeding stage where everything stays pretty dry down there! (Last time I didn't get AF back until 21 months. . . ).

Glad to hear that others are enjoying this stage as well!
