  • I loved it so much, the very day after I gave birth I missed it terribly. I was even on bed rest for 10 weeks and that actually made me feel like I missed out on a lot of the enjoyment of being pregnant, so I would love to be able to do it again. I say adore every moment, every minute of it while you can.

  • I think you either love it or you hate it. I really hated it while I was preggers, but then later I missed it. I used my baby sling a lot to get that closeness again.

  • I enjoyed some of it. I loved the movement of my daughter. I didnt enjoy how big I got and my feet swelling where I had to buy a new pair of shoes for the last month of my pregnancy (I went up a whole size during that time). I enjoyed my husband talking to our daughter through my tummy. I didnt enjoy not eating for the first 18 weeks cause the site of food made me sick to my tummy. I quess you take the good and the bad. It was a love/hate relationship. I hated some of it but I enjoyed what I got from it.

  • It depended on the day but I honestly didn't miss it after I wasn't any longer. ;)

    With my first I had a fairly easy time until the last month . Then I had pregnancy induced hyper-tension, bed rest and oodles of fun. (Not so much fun actually.) With my 2nd I was so physically ill the first 5 months - I couldn't keep food down without the doctor giving me something to help and even with that I spent lots of time feeling queasy. When that finally passed I came down with strep throat and pink eye. Plus I was chasing around a 2 year old the entire time. I had had enough of being pregnant at about 8 months.

  • I don't like being pregnant at all. The only positive is feeling the baby move. Just don't like not feeling in control of my body.

  • Yes I did love it. I hated the morning sickness which was really bad for 4 months. But other than that yeah it was great.

  • I had 4 babies...one at 20yrs, 23yrs, 34yrs and 41yrs...and I loved every minute of it. The first couple I gained too much weight, but my last two I lost. I loved everything about it and sometimes get real sad that my bio clock has expired anymore babies outta me.

  • It was a love/hate relationship for me. With all 3 of my kids I had morning sickness......afternoon sickeness......evening sickness.....and overnight sickness. I would throw up at least 10 times every day throughout the whole pregnancy. My doctor would give me medicine to stop me from throwing up and I would throw that up. With my first I also had migraines and with my youngest I had preeclampsia and gestational diabetes. Other than those things I loved knowing that my body was creating a miracle, my body was nourishing my baby. I loved feeling my babies move and I loved talking to them and having them kick me while I talked to them :)
