I LOVED being preggo both times.  With my first child, I did have an upset tummy but once my vitamins were switched it was soooo much better.  I can't say that I had a least favorite part of being preggo.  I never had a problem sleeping.  I rarely woke up to pee in the middle of the night.  My favorite part was feeling the baby moving around.  I LOVED being preggo.  I miss being preggo now.  My son is 4 and I miss that feeling.

What was your favorit part of being pregnant? I enjoyed pretty much everything. Other than having to do progesterone treatment for the first 13 weeks it was a very easy pregnancy.

What was your least favorite part? Worrying through the first trimester.

What part surpised you? How laid back I was being in labor. I laughed through most of it even though I went through 18 hours of unmedicated labor ONLY to end up needing a c-section.

I loved most of all my pregnancys!!  2nd trimester with the boys was like a 2nd honeymoon for dh and I lol.  I didn't like the morning sickness I got with my dd and was never really "in the mood" when I was pg with her.  I loved feeling my babies move and watching my belly grow, just not so much my weight!  I loved the excitment with my first one and watching my LOs get excited about a new sibling.  I hated the pelvic pain I got with my last 2 boys.  It hurt so bad!!! Honestly I didn't mind the labor, I looked forward to planning my delivery and learning new techniques to help ease my labors.  I loved how each of my labors were different but all were bareable.  I hated how people would make comments about having another boy or rude comments about having 4 kids.  I also hated how people were so judgemental about how I choose to labor and birth my babies.  Just because I was not "normal" and chose to have them naturally and my last one at home, people would say rude things sometimes.  But all the wonderful things about pregnancy and labor outweighed all the negatives!!  Now I want to be pregnant again lol

Favorite part with all three was watching my belly get bigger!

Least favorite part with A was the pre-eclamtic symptoms. With B and C having to check my blood sugars. Probably with all three the fact that I had c-sections!

I was surprised by how different the movements felt between my first and second pregnancies. With my first it was fun. With my second, he loved to kick my pelvic floor (so telling of his now personality!) so it was painful!

What was your favorit part of being pregnant (for those of you with more than one child, go ahead and list more than one thing if you have it)? Favorite part was prolly all of the excitement of becoming a Mommy. Feeling my babies kick! Then watching how excited Ryan was about being a big brother and the fact he was going to have a little brother!

What was your least favorite part? Hmmmm gaining too much weight. Waiting at my doctors for ever for my appts sometimes. Heartburn with Ryan was horrible!

What part surpised you? The aftermath of having Ryan.. was a horrible recovery. How much love you can have for this little baby in your arms!

Favorite part: feeling the kids move

least favorite part: the strict diet I had to follow, the BP meds, the insulin shots, checking my BP and blood sugar levels throughout the day

part that surprised me: how much I'd love the little person I was growing once I met them

I absolutely LOVED feeling all the baby movement. I actually missed it after Brayden was born.

My SIL who just had her baby, hated feeling the baby moving around. I know everyone is different but I just couldn't understand that! lol!
