Definitely the movement. Smile

But I have also loved the fact that I haven't been so nervous about what to expect this time. Last time I was nervous for labor, the early days with the baby, breastfeeding, etc. This time I feel confident in all of that and I am just excited for it to get here.

NOT MOVING! (I moved in the 3rd tri with DS.)
Not needing to research every baby product out there to make sure I am getting the "right" stuff.
I LOVE my bump this time, even if I look like I'm 11 months. Lol

I agree! The best part is sharing it with DD. She has always been a baby lover, and it's so sweet to watch how excited she is about finally having our new baby. She constantly talks about him, shares food with him, looks forward to how she can take care of him when he's born, etc. It seems so much more real to me this time, I think, mostly because he's very real to her. Not that I didn't think of her as a real person when I was pregnant with her, but the way she acts it's like birth is only a formality. It's incredibly sweet and adds a whole new dimension to pregnancy. :love1:

For me, knowing this pregnancy is going to be my last is so bitter sweet. I LOVE feeling him move,and grow, and am soaking that up. I am also enjoying my belly, and just feeling the life growing inside of it. Pregnancy is truly a miraculous experience, and I will definitely miss it.

Like Harmony and Shauna said, connecting with the kids, and seeing their excitement is also amazing. DS1 is excited. This is his 3rd sibling so hes an old pro. DS2 is so cute. Every morning he comes in, gives my belly a rub and says "Kellen" and gives my belly a kiss. DD is also so excited. I dont know if she gets it quite the way her brothers do, but she gives my belly kisses. She is more interested in taking care of her dolls... trying to diaper them, push them around in strollers, "feed them" and so on. She is such a little mommy already, so I am sure that once Wee dude is born she will be my little helper.

I am also enjoying the way that DH and I are connecting. Him touching my belly, connecting with not only me, but our new little son. Also, the way he looks at me, theres just an extra something, cant quite describe it

For me it's the movement.

It's really the only part I enjoy about pregnancy. Since this is our last I am trying to focus on enjoying all the kicks and flips inside.
