Do you hate being pregnant?

I suppose some women will see this and be all frantic since some feel pregnancy is so beautiful and wonderful and joyous...but I just don't share in this concept. Does anyone else feel similarly? This is my second pregnancy and though I want at least two or three more children, also adding two or three more pregnancies to my lifetime, I really hate that pregnant part. It is all worth it in the end, yes, but I just don't get any enjoyment out of the 9 months prior to bringing my beautiful babies into this world. I'm so uncomfortable, so tired, so fat...this morning I almost toppled over because of the shear weight sticking out in front of me...not my idea of fun by any means.

  • I hate being pregnant, I'd seriously rather be in hard labor for 2 weeks versus 9 months of pregnancy. But the end result is all worth it. I figure I better just suck it up because I want to have a lot of kids.

  • I like being pregnant and feeling a baby moving inside me and knowing I'm caring a life but I hate some of the symptoms you have to go through during pregnancy like nausea, weight gain, back pain, can't get comfortable to sleep, etc.

  • Yes, feeling the baby move is the one highlight for me, lol. I would still much prefer feeling her move outside of the womb though!

  • Don't feel to about hating being pregnant, I hated it, I was never more misserable in my whole life, except maybe durring labor. I wasn't that I didn't love the baby insided me, it was just that I felt terrible.

  • oh if I could I would be a surrogate. BUT I had complications with DD and hubby doesn't want me to go through that ever again so he vetoed that idea

  • Okay, so I'm not the only one. My mother doesn't even remember being pregnant and my MIL thinks it was the best time of her life, so they always think I'm nutty when I say how much I can't stand it...then proceed to say I want 5 or 6 children anyway, haha! It is worth it, but it still sucks.

  • I have a love hate relationship with pregnancy. I really hate it enough to not want to get pregnant again, but I do love feeling my baby move inside of me.
