My first seemed to drag by the ENTIRE time! However, this is # 2 and I'm due in a few weeks and I feel like this pregnancy has been a complete whirlwind!
I can almost guarantee that with the holidays coming up, you will speed passed those pretty quickly, especially if you have a lot of plans with family and what not.

Don't just let this time go to waste though, do research on pregnancy, labor and delivery, breastfeeding (if you plan to), or formula feeding, what to expect after baby gets here as far as how newborns sleep, pooping, etc. I cannot tell you how helpful it was to have some of that knowledge behind me.

One thing I DIDN'T research and I can't believe I didn't was breastfeeding, I just knew that I wanted to - but there was a lot I didn't know and ended up having some issues because I wasn't really educated about it and some stupid nurse in the hospital gave me misinformation - long story short, had I done my research, I would have saved myself a lot of heartache.

Either way you choose to feed, RESEARCH! and Good luck mama, I hope you have an awesome pregnancy!

It will surely speed up again. As the saying goes, "in the blink of an eye".

Congrats on your babies!!!! I hope your delivery goes smooth! With having a little one you are probably so busy you dont notice how fast time is passing. I was sooo excited about being pregnant I read like 2 books in the matter of a few days lol. Im interested in breast feeding Ive heard both good and bad but I will have to see how it goes for myself. Also with going back to work idk how hard it will be to maintain that life style....I love being pregnant I have had such a good pregnancy no morning sickness heartburn ect....but my as for sinus i have been congested since the week i found out. Another thing ive been trying to reasearch is banking the "cord blood" and if its really worth the money...... With your first did you go over your due date????????
