Default Am I CRAZY?????

I miss being pregnant!!!! I was trying to figure out why, and I think it's because I was so sick for a while, and took so long to show, that I only had limited time to enjoy the comfortable part of pregnancy. I felt pretty great at the end and would have been happy to go a week or two post date, but it didn't happen. I miss wearing cute maternity clothes! And I LOVED labour and delivery! It was all so much easier than parenting a newborn.

But I actually don't want to get pregnant again for at least 2 years... I want to get into shape and stay there a while, let my body recover, and have some time with this baby to get him weaned, toilet trained, etc. etc. etc. Yet, part of me wishes I could do it all again tomorrow, and keep having lots and lots of babies... is that totally weird?

I feel exactly the same way. Totally miss it. I'm downright nostalgic.

This is why I have 4 kids, and why I would have 10 if it didn't cost so much money to raise them all. Practicality entered into my family planning much more than anything else. I LOVED being pregnant, and I always mourned it after it was over. I loved labor too, and my one good delivery...the c-secs I could do without.

You're crazy,

I'll take 3 more babies, but don't want to go through pregnancy or labor (or tiny newborn) stages again!

You said it, not me - you are crazy!

I didn't feel that way until Kennedy was about 15 months old. I didn't miss being pregnant as much as I missed having a little baby around.

My sister who had her baby 2 months ago, says the same thing. She totally misses being pregnant and is envious that I'm right at the good part of it!

I loved being pregnant too. And I wish River was brand new again. I loved how small and sweet he was. He is still sweet, but he is just bigger now... And, I was decently cute pregnant and now I'm just fat

I miss it to I miss not having to share him and I miss feeling him move around in there. I've told my sis-in-law that I'd have a baby for her. Labor on the other hand I did not love, but I loved being in the hospital for those few days.

I wish I could figure out a way to stay 7 months pregnant for the rest of my life. Truly, I LOVED being full of life, feeling that movement, anticipating the event, getting the attention. I felt great pregnant too...never even got a cold.

I was throwing up for the first 6 months too, lots. But I loved the last couple of months. And because I threw up so much, I never did get huge... maybe that was why I loved it and felt good. I can see why being huge would be annoying. Who knows, that may be me next time around... and then I'll wonder what I was thinking wanting to be pregnant.

I'm not sure if this part of the PP emotions but what I remember distinctly feeling that all the attention was on ME while I was pregnant and then all of sudden all the attention was on BABY and no one cared about me anymore. So from that perspective I definitely missed being pregnant.

Going through it again, it sucks just as much this time around as it did last time. I guess its a good thing that most of us get amnesia/nostalgia or none of us would do it again.

i think being huge is the part i hate about not being pregnant too! i started off at 138 (which was the most i had ever weighed at the time) and lost 20 lbs from puking. i was hospitalized at least once a week for dehydration...they couldnt find new places to put the IV...ugh!! now after the baby im 151 which i hate. i guess thats a "normal" size since im 5'7" i just bought an exercise video, which i cant wait to use! and i am enjoying the boobies. i think thats the second best thing that came from being pregnant!

I have two boys who are 15 mnths apart. Ethan will be 3 in Oct. and Micah is 19 mnths. If my husband had his way I would be pregnant right now. I wish I can have them without going through the whole pregnancy bit. And I had good pregnancies. No morning sickness. But I did get huge. Now I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight and dread having to gain back the weight when we have a third child.

This is where my sister is right now - our mom will call her and ask how "her boy" is doing and not ask how she's doing. I make a concerted effort to ask her how she's doing especially since we just found out my brother in law has to go to India for 3 weeks in November, she's trying to figure out the day care situation and is alone all day since my b.i.l. has been working 16 hour days lately.

I vote crazy!
I didn't like pregnancy so much. Being sick, nauseous, sleep problems, getting huge and uncomfortable, ugh. Then there were those sad times, too. I can't separate the successful pregnancies with the not so successful one. They were also one after the other. I didn't get much time to enjoy each of the kids before another was on it's way.
But, feeling them move inside was sooooo cool.

I would much rather be pregnant then deal with the newborn stage again!

The newborn cry litterally makes me want to jump out of my skin, even now i cringe when i hear it. The constant crying, feeds, sleepless nights, colic, runny diapers ect ect ect

I wish they would come out 6 months old!
