<p>What's your favorite part about being pregnant?  Sometimes we're so uncomfortable/nauseous/tired/ect that we occasionally lose sight of how awesome becoming a mother is.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I love being pregnant because it makes me look like a fertility goddess.  It took me a while to see it but I can see why DH will make excuses to come get a glimpse of me in the tub.  Even with my stretch marks pregnancy looks amazing!  Now I can only hope I can get a 'Venus' figure once he's born, lol.</p>

<p>I love feeling lots of movements and imagining what the baby will look like when she does them in the outside world. </p>

<p>It took us years to conceive and we were only successful with IVF. I couldn't be more grateful for this pregnancy and every day I feel fortunate--aches, constipation, insomina, and all. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/smile.gif"></p>

<p>I could sit and watch my belly contort with the fetal dance party in my uterus all day long. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/smile.gif"></p>

<p>Its like walking around with a Christmas Present strapped to your tummy!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Even if you find out the gender there are tons of other surprises that come with it. Who will baby look like? Who will baby be? Will baby have hair? How much? What color?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Plus, feeling movement... and I'm not afraid to admit... having the perfect excuse to get out of cleaning kitty litter or doing particularly heavy lifting.</p>

<p>...I can relax with my feet up and ask the kids to fetch me things from upstairs without the slightest twinge of guilt.LOL  And my hubby thinks that my pregnant body is the sexiest in the world.  Makes no sense to me, but it's a reason to enjoy being pregnant!</p>

<p>People say "you look great!" to me all the time!  I also go into fits of giggles in public when I can see and feel my tummy bouncing all around.</p>

<p>I love the sense of anticipation!  What will it be?  Boy, girl, tall, short, chubby, skinny....</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I love the fact that I have the best skin when I am pregnant.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I love the fact that maternity clothes fit me in a way regular clothes never will. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I love the planning and dreaming.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I love watching my husband talk and poke at my belly.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I love grabbing bits of baby and trying to guess what it is.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I love that it saves me from having to think of something to say to random people I don't know well. (I'm bad at smalltalk)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Honestly, it's like carrying the best toy around with you all the time!</p>

<p>I can't wait to see what he looks like.  <img alt="" src="http://files.mothering.com/joy.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Is he going to be blond? </p>
<p>Did he get enough redhead genes to be a redhead? </p>
<p>Will he have my monkey toes?</p>
<p>Is he going to be able to wiggle his ears like my family?</p>
<p>Will he grow to be really tall (like my family) or stay on the shorter side (like DH's family)?</p>
<p>Is he going to look similar to our nephews or like his uncles?</p>
<p>How big is he going to be?</p>

Feeling all of the movements is hands down my favorite part.  In the early part, I enjoy being the only one who can feel it, and as the babe gets bigger and stronger, it's fun to see Dh (and the kids this time) get to feel it too.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My Dh is also a member of the pg ladies are sexy club, that's a nice boost when you feel huge and fat!</p>

<p>I love looking definitely pregnant (as opposed to just fat/bloated!) but not so huge it's uncomfortable.  I also enjoy baby's movement before he gets too strong and becomes annoying at times.  I love my boobs being nice and full when pregnant (as opposed to deflated).</p>

<p>there are so many things i love about being pregnant!</p>
<p>i'm in awe that the babe and i together are co-creating new life! wow. i am just amazed!</p>
<p>i love feeling movement! </p>
<p>i love how freaked out my husband gets when he feels the movement.</p>
<p>i so look forward to meeting our little one and discovering who he/she is!</p>
<p>i love that right now, i'm the only one that gets to hold him/her. it's just our time together...soon enough we'll share each other, but not yet!</p>
<p>i love that my breasts are big and voluptuous!</p>
<p>i love that my body just knows what to do...i couldn't gain weight if i tried before, and now fat's everywhere it needs to be and baby has lots of stores!</p>
<p>i love that my dh is so turned on by me (though i wish i had my regular desire level to go with his desire, but since i don't i still enjoy his desire!)</p>
<p>i look at my shape and hardly recognize myself, but at the same time feel just like me!</p>
<p>i love the pregnant goddess look i'm sporting! definitely feeling fertile, creator, goddess! :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>p.s. i don't mind not handling the kitty litter either! :) oh yeah, and i love that i can so explicitly listen to my own needs and nobody expects any difference! that every day might be like that and we'd have a richer world!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>so many things!</p>
