I always loved being pregnant, from the beginning to the birth. When I had my babies, I always felt lonely inside, I felt like a part of me was missing, even though the baby was in the same room with me. I know, it does sound strange. My favourite memory of being pregnant was the first kicks I got and seeing the baby on the ultrasound. What was you favourite memory? For you blokes out there, you can also answer this too, what was your favourite memory when you partner was pregnant?

i just always felt so good when my baby was kicking and moving around. it was a wonderful feeling of life inside me. that first little flutter of life was so thrilling. the whole pregnancy was such a miraculous experience, and when my babies were just born and laid on my chest and i looked down into that wonderful little face, all the pain and discomfort just faded away.

It is a wonderful feeling, I also know what you mean, you are in so much pain while giving birth but as soon as they are put on your chest, you forget about the pain. I loved being pregnant with all of my kids. Thanks!

My fondest memory of being pregnant was when I also felt my baby's first kick.It was really so exciting that it almost ticked my entire body. Funny because I was laughing alone, thinking that other people might think that I'm crazy. Also, it made me much happier when I saw my baby from the ultrasound where I saw my baby moved my sideways, downward & upward. It made me really complete and whole as a mother.

Yes, the kicking is a great feeling, it is something I will never forget. The ultrasounds are a very special moment too, just seeing the baby move inside of you. It is also a special moment for dads too. Thanks!

Definately the 4D scan! I could see my baby so real, like i was already holding her in my arms. And she even smiled!!I cried and cried. it was such a beautiful experience.

You are very lucky, where I went to have my kids, they didn't have it available. I am still glad to just have the normal scans, it is a very special moment during the pregnancy. Thanks!

My favorite memory of being pregnant was the kicks. i remember lying in bed with my hands on my stomach for an hour at a time just waiting to feel my daughter kick. it was an amazing feeling.

I would say feeling my babies kick . I missed that feeling after they were born and always thought it was a neat feel even though it could get bothersome when they did it all night long lol . I enjoyed being pregnant with all of my children except for the last one and it wasn't that I wasn't happy that I was pregnant it was that I developed some kind of depression from being pregnant . They end up finding out I had problems with my pressure and they had to put me on some medication that they said would cause depression but once I started this I started to feel better . I have since wondered if it is possible to have post parem when you are pregnant as it never bothered me again .

Yes I understand how you can miss the kicking, you get so used to it and then one day it is gone. I haven't heard of someone getting depressed during the pregnancy and it was interesting reading you comment. I am glad that you started feeling better after they put you on the medication. Thanks!
