Mine are:
Hate-the hip sciatic pain, the general discomfort of that last long month, having to wake up all night to pee and/or wetting myself when I sneeze, being tired alllllll the time, oh and itchy boobs.
But I love-knowing that my body is
doing something amazing, feeling the baby kick and knowing it's just me and her for a little while, Handling/putting away tiny clothes and getting ready for baby, getting maybe just a little bit of extra attention, and getting to eat ice cream guilt-free.

I hate everything about pregnancy besides the fact that it ends in a baby... It's sickening the first 3 months, tiring the next 3, and painful the last... It's stressful, and all I ever think about some days is "what if"... This will be my last time being pregnant.

 When I was prego I loved to feel hayden move. It was so cool to sit and watch him move all over and look like Magog (Andromeda refernce) in my stomach. I love shopping for bitty baby clothes. I want another one. Now to get a guy.

I loved feeling the baby move but I also hated it lol my dd would sleep all day then come 1am she would start kicking me so hard and she would end up kicking me til about 5am then finally stop. I never got any sleep while being pregnant with her and everything made me sick so I didnt get to pig out either but I loved my big pregnant belly. She was 2 oz shy of being 9 pds so I had a big big belly to show off.

I loved feeling the baby move and not having a period for 9 months( really loved that one,lol).I hated everything else about it, especially the sickness and gaining weight.

I LOVE being pregnant, but I could go without the random peeing when I sneeze or cough. I have taken to wearing pads, so sad, so very sad. LOL

I love not having a period for 10+ months and knowing that only us women can do something as special as growing a baby.  I also love feeling the baby move, especially later in pregnancy when you can see it move too.  And when the baby kicks my DH, that is too funny.  I hate the pain in my back and leaking boobs.  I also hate waiting 10 months to get to see the baby and cuddle the baby.  Oh, and I dread labor pain!

 I actually loved feeling him move, I loved being able to sleep so much.I did not like morning sickness still want to know why they call it morning sickness because I was sick more in the evening then I was in the morning oh the YI sucked & so did the hemroide.. Now labour that was painfull & a bit scarry. I have a amazing little boy so it was all worth it. What I love about being a mom now is hearing- I love you mommy & watching all of his firsts. What I hate is having to clean pee up from around the toilet.

These are so interesting to read! Sorry some of you mommas have had tough pregnancies. I guess you just have to keep your eyes on that light at the end of the tunnel. That's about where I am right now. 4 more weeks...

Loved-baby kicking, no period for 9 months, DF always there to do/get whatever I need, etc.
Hated-getting the epidural, always having to pee, bad mood swings, baby kicking while I'm trying to sleep, hard to go to sleep, morning sickness, (I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks)

Overall, I loved being pregnant, I wanna do it again, course, maybe I'll wait until DD starts potty training
