  • I liked being pregnant, the attention, the 'special' food sometimes, the cute maternity clothes, and the um...interesting sex (lol especially when I felt HUGE but was still horny). I'm done having kids though and will not ever be pregnant again and that makes me kinda sad :(

  • only that i got to eat any weird combo of foods i wanted and finally didnt have ppl staring at me like i was crazy. other than that i hated being pregnant.

    i miss that new baby smell and holding those tiny little fingers...DS is almost 2, so im starting to get the "i need a new baby" pangs.

  • I miss the parenting stage where you put them somewhere and they stay put and fall asleep!! Lol

  • I was glad when it was over, the pregnancy and birth!

  • I had to have an emergancy c-section. So I missed out on having a normal birth. We only had the one and I dont think well have any more kids.

  • I had just started my "research" on male/female sperm when I got pregnant. I had planned to track my ovulation and attempt to time it right so I could have a girl but I got pregnant before I could even track my first period. I'm just too fertile. So now I have 2 boys and I don't think we are trying again, so there goes my pink frills. Now I have to wait 20+ years for a granddaughter or hope one of my brothers gives me a niece.

  • I loved being pregnant. I waited a very long time before I was blessed with a baby, and I enjoyed every minute of the experience. Well okay, I could have done without the 24/7 puking for the first four months, but once that was over, the rest was awesome. If I was stuck in a long line or having a stupid argument with someone, I'd just think to myself that there was a precious new human being inside me, growing and developing in that moment, and I was wowed. I even got all happy over the big belly days. The C-section wasn't fun, but when they laid my daughter on my chest, it was the most magical second of my life. Holding her as a newborn, the baby smell, nursing her as best I could, hearin her learn to talk, now all the stuff she's learning like letters and numbers and kindness and climbing higher at the park than she did last year--it's just out of this world. I deeply want to have another one; we'll se.
