What sucks about your pregnancy?

I get so annoyed when I see people post on FB/IG/etc. that pregnant women shouldn't complain about their pregnancies because of people who can't get pregnant or have experienced loss.

This is still bugging me from one I saw Saturday. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that I was miserable when I read it, having stomach acid kicked up into my throat.

And ugh, all the comments about how excited some of them were to have horrible pregnancy symptoms.

It's ok to not enjoy being uncomfortable. Things like this are the reason women are so afraid to admit anything negative related to their pregnancies or children. That can have negative effect, folks.

So anyway, what sucks about your pregnancy? Bitch it out.

Honestly nothing... But that's probably because this is my 9th pregnancy. I've had all the heartburn, sore hips, sharp pains.

Yeah, I guess this is just business as usual for you. I don't think I could do it! This is my second, but my first will be 14 in two weeks so it may as well be my first. And I was in no way this uncomfortable with my first.

I woke up last night with some nasty low back pain (which is partially due to a nasty storm that blew in last night). When I got up I felt like I'd been kicked in the taint. My son likes to hang out low and push up later in the night. Other than some nasty morning sickeness in my first trimester and the fact that on occasion he drops my blood sugar out from under me, it's not been a terrible pregnancy.

Right now, the only two things that really bother me is the fatigue and the all day nausea. Some days I throw up in the morning, some days I don't.

That is very true. I have hyperemesis during my pregnancies, up to the very end. At the end of them I'm in so much pain it hurts me to walk. I have big babies and am very uncomfortable. Pregnancy is not fun for me other than feeling the baby move. The end result? More than worth all of that discomfort! But it bothers me too, when people say women shouldn't complain. Pregnancy is not a walk in the park for everyone!

For me it's the fear and anxiety that trumps any physical discomforts.

I hate every moment of being pregnant. Mind you I had horrible pregnancies but Im not a good pregnant person. I just hate it in general.

I love being pregnant and having a baby, what I hate the most is when it's over, I always am ready to be pregnant again. LOL

Okay, and the last 3-4 weeks suck. I get prodromal labor where I can't tell when I actually go into labor and am "this" close to having a baby. It made it so I had an unassisted birth where my husband delivered this time. LOL
