Now that your baby is here has anyone experienced "Pregnancy Envy"

I was at BrUs this weekend and of course everyone was pregnant - I felt oddly envious of the baby bellies!!! It seemed like I was preggers FOREVER and now I can barely remember it :(

  • No not at all lol. I thought I was done after my first, then we decided to have another, got pregnant on the first try, and now we are done and I have zero envy but I do wish them well.

  • Im only 23 weeks pregnant and I get it. My friend is 3 months ahead of me and she can feel the baby all the time see the baby moving she got to see her baby in 3d and all that already... :( I want to feel and see my baby boy already! BUTTTTTTTT she just had her baby by c-section 2 days ago... So maybe it will go away... lol or maybe it will just get worse cause she actually gets to hold feed and see her baby now

  • Yes, I do all the time! I loved being pregnant both times, but you don't truly realize what a special time it is until its over. I will always be nostalgic about being pregnant.

  • Maybe it is because I was so nervous the entire pregnancy (I am OLD and High Risk LOL!) that I did not get to enjoy being pregnant (if that is possible!) And I will will not ever get to experience it again :) (C-section with a Side of Tubal Ligation Please....)

  • No - my 4th pregnancy was horrible, I was miserable and in pain throughout most of it. I would love another child, but medically don't think it's a wise decision to be pregnant again.

  • Ugh, no. Having been pregnant and through labor, I now pity those women:)
