    What has been the best part of the second trimester for you so far?
    jle09 responded:
    Feeling movement - definitely.

    It is still new in the 2nd tri and the baby is still small enough to where it isn't painful or constant. Its really reassuring to feel her move once every hour.

    Also, I love the attention you get when you start showing, People open doors for you and give up seats.

    I love that my belly looks like a pregnant belly now. 2nd tri just seems more relaxing. :o)
    ttrishh responded:
    The end to the constant vomiting.... Sorry ladies but someone had to say it!

    I will also agree that I love seeing my big baby bump, I love feeling the baby move, I love the attention and I love that I can actually stay up later than my toddler again!

    I call this my pregnancy honeymoon!

    Feeling Anna move all the time. Love it. :)
    snaps_mcgee88 responded:
    I would say feeling and seeing her move and kick! I love it!

    Jamie (me 21), Andrew (hubby 22), Zach (cat baby 2), and to top it all off with a cherry: our little Aubree Chyanne due June 9th, 2010

    Definitely feeling him move and kick has been the best part of 2nd tri so far. I also love my baby bump. :)

    The best part of the 2nd trimester so far is feeling the movement and actually looking pregnant. I'm 21 weeks and feeling my little man move more and more each day and it's great!! I can't wait until my DH can feel it too!! I now feel and look pregnant instead of just looking fat lol!!
    Atlas63 responded:
    I agree with most of the others - feeling her move is the best part of the 2nd trimester. I also like that I don't feel sick all of the time.
    imreddy responded:
    :( I haven't felt my babies move yet...very disappointing. However, I do love that I'm showing...and getting bigger by the day!
    Bandia1206 replied to imreddy's response:
    I'ma make a list

    1) Feeling better: more energy, less nausea, less mood swings

    2) Finding out the gender

    3) Feeling him kick :)
    MrsIvey responded:
    Getting over the m/s and finally being able to eat!!! To that extent, getting to make up for the lost weight by eating myself silly!!!

    And as a close second, feeling and seeing Carmen move. I loved that with DD too, it's just so cool. :-)
    MtnPrincess responded:
    Oh to choose only one!! :) So I won't! Here's my list:

    1)Not puking anymore!
    2) feeling movement
    3) finally showing so I don't just feel "fat"
    4) having my ultrasound and seeing the healthy , moving, perfect li'l boy we're having!
