By telling the story about my labor makes me want to have another baby, is that odd? Anybody else like that?

When I tell people about the day I had my daughter, it makes me want another baby. My pregnancy wasn't very pleasant and labor isn't exactly a picnic so I find it kind of mind boggling.

  • I completely agree. I hated being pregnant, there were parts about it that I loved but for the most part I hated it. And my babys only two months old but thinking about it makes me want to go through it again. Cuz it is a amazing experience, and I love my son to death. I think ill wait a couple years though.

  • I understand what you're saying and lately I have been kinda missing being pregnant, but NO WAY IN I*(*&(&(*& do I want another baby right now. Dd is just now gaining a little independence to where I can leave the room to go pee without her screaming bloody murder. Yeah, I think I'll wait a few years myself!

  • I understand, think about it, I know it was hard but it was the first time you saw your baby face 2 face. It is special. With all my pregnancies, I always felt special, it is like no other feeling.

  • Well that makes me feel good! I am pregnant with my first and TERRIFIED of labor. It's nice to hear that someone who even had an unpleasant labor experience wants to go through it again!

  • I think this way a lot. My first birth experience was horrible, and I felt like everyone ruined it for me..so I wanted another baby to 'do it my way'. Then when I had my twins, and everything did go my way, it was the best thing that ever happened to me, and I would LOVE to have another baby, and have another experience. I even dream of being in labor again. Women are crazy, let me tell you.
