When do you start to despise pregnancy?

I will go on record as saying how much I hate pregnancy. I LOVE taking new babies home, but hate that this is part of the process.

My second trimesters usually aren't too bad, but I am about 27 weeks and feel like a whale already...tired...peeing every hour at night...swelling...looking flat out ridiculous. I'm getting to the point where I can't wait to be done...and I have 13 @$#%%^&*(*&^&%$^#%$@%#$%*) weeks to go!!!

  • I'm 9 weeks and I've been throwing up every day for five weeks with no end in sight.... I'm praying it gets better soon, other wise I told my husband he better be happy with raising one kid lol.
    I know in the end it will be worth it, but right now I'm tired of puking or feeling like I am going to every single day, all day long.

  • the third trimester is when i started hating it. it's just so uncomfortable, your baby is big & out of room, so he or she is constantly shoving a toe into your ribcage or jamming their head against your cervix. then, your swollen, pee constantly, can't sleep for shit, eat everything edible along your path, cry for no reason at all, get angry for no reason at all, back hurts like hell, it's uncomfortable to drive at this point, and most of all, you just want the baby OUT! i was so uncomfortable during my 3rd pregnancy, i had that problem in my cartilage where it became stretchy and everytime i so much as lifted my leg to put my pants on, i'd get this horrendous pain in my pelvis like it was going to snap or something. my 2nd child was 10 pounds so i would have to say i flat out wanted to die during the last couple of weeks of that pregnancy!

  • I loved my entire pregnancy! EXCEPT the last week-- and its because I was throwing up/diarrhea almost non-stop!
    Id love to be pregnant. even go thru the L&D many times over... but i dont think i have what it takes to handle a big family. we are going for 2.. and (a big) maybe 3..

  • I loved pregnancy but I def felt like I would be pregnant forever! I felt that I would never have the baby out and that Id walk around pregnant for the rest of my life LOL That was my first. Im sure with the second Ill feel more prepared but Im dreading the pregnancy because Im impatient and just want the baby hahhaa. I did enjoy pregnancy but wish it was shorter!

  • I am pregnant with my first and miserable with "morning" sickness all day. I am also having breast pain and everything smells so strong to me... I can already understand why some people despise this!

    However I got a scare from the doctor the other day and when I realized how fragile this little life is my perspective changed... now I am praying for the symptoms to continue as a sign that the little one is still OK.

  • tnm...I'm on my third and I am having so much pelvic pain...worse when I stand on one when I'm putting on pants, socks, or slipping on shoes...I wonder if it is a cartilage issue.

  • About the third trimester, by that time I'm too big to do anything and it gets annoying.
