A pregnant friend of mine recently declared, "People who say they love pregnancy are so full of it!" I had to laugh and tell her she was dead wrong, because I was one of the lucky ones who really did love the expectant state. Of course I missed out on morning sickness, which makes the first trimester more delightful than imagined. The trip down baby bump lane was also made easier by the fact that I don't care much for alcohol and gave myself permission to eat whatever my baby-growing heart desired. Though what I loved most of all were the magical kicks and flips. I consider myself fortunate that I have only fond memories of my nine months with each of my children. What was your experience?
