Do you ever miss being pregnant?

or are you the 'i hate being pregnant' type?

i am a mix of both. i enjoy watching and feeling my baby grow and anticipating the day he or she will come, having the closest bond you can possibly have with your child because they're growing inside of you, picking out nursery decorations and clothes and all that good stuff.

but i also loathe the mood swings that come with the hormonal rollercoaster, the aches and pains, etc.

sometimes i miss being pregnant and get that "baby fever" feeling. i have three and not having anymore. my youngest is 18 months and i feel i baby her too much sometimes lol

  • yes and no. I miss being pregnant cause of feeling the baby kick. But then I dont miss it cause of the pain it causes and not many clothing choices. I have a 2 year old and my son turns 1 next month. No more kids right now

  • Didn't like being pregnant but really miss my baby days! My kids are 17 and 9 and I miss having a baby around! Guess I'll just have to wait til they have kids ... hopefully in their mid to late twenties - (not feeling like a GrandMa yet!)

  • I miss being pregnant, i hate the morning sickness for the 3 months evertime i was pregnant. But i surely miss feeling my baby move inside of me. I also have 3 kids and my husband says no more. My youngest is 2.5. I also get the baby fever. Its sad cause they grow up so fast, if they could stay little for ever i would so be set !

  • after my first dd I missed it, then when I got pregnant with my second I just wanted it to fastforward through the pregnancy and hated being pregnant (love the end result, lol, but hated the pregnancy).

  • I hated being pregnant because of the morning sickness that lasted for 25+ weeks, however, I miss the kicks and movement! That was awesome!
