Do you think that women can actually be addicted to pregnancy?

I am not trying to judge. I am just asking a honest question. Do you think that there are women that can actually be addicted to pregnancy and birth? Look at the Duggars, I am all about big families, and I am also religious. However, 19 kids is insane to me.

I am currently pregnant with my 6th baby. I honestly detest pregnancy. It's uncomfortable. Don't get me wrong. I planned to have this baby, and I love my children dearly. I just hate the latter part of pregnancy. So, I can't fathom being addicted to this feeling.

Having said that, I'm 13 weeks along, and I feel like it's another boy. I am so friggin' excited to meet this little bundle next year. This will probably be my last or next to it so I am really looking forward to breast feeding this time. That was off topic. Sorry. :)

Tell me what you think.

Yes, I think so. I absolutely love pregnancy and birth. I don't want back-to-back children though.

I think it's possible. For me, no. For other women, sure.

Yes I am, unfortunately I can't have as many as I want because I have to have c-sections and the medicines (epidural & spinal) I am allergic to. So i am going to have my next baby (not pregnant) a natural water birth (I have to go to another state) I loved being pregnant and enjoyed the experience (even though it was bad) of my boys births.

My addiction is to motherhood and you usually have to get there through pregnancy. I got pregnant a lot but had 4 boys - 2 of which passed away (one at 6 years and next at 2 days)

Why do you have to go to another state. The risk of risk of rupture is only as high as like 1.4%.

I think that people can be addicted to anything, so yes.
