I enjoyed my first pregnancy and I'm really starting to enjoy this one now that all the turmoil is over, but I still find myself getting stressed out about trivial things and wishing this one was the way it was supposed to be...getting married, enjoying it with S.O. etc...
Why did you not enjoy yours? Was it because you didn't have and S.O. there to go through it with or other issues?
In a way, yes. I have been under so much stress with it, constantly worrying about how I am going to survive, how hard it's going to be etc. I have no one to pamper me, no one to experience it with, I feel very lonely sometimes. I feel like your first pregnancy especially is supposed to be this magical time, and mine is just something I am trying to get through...I honestly can't wait for it to be over! I guess it will just make me appreciate the next one though, as I will (hopefully) be experiencing it with someone I love.
Those who love me know how to reach me...it's been real ladies, peace and love!!
Uh,...yeah! I totally feel like that! I didn't really like mine enough for me to say I don't think having another baby is in my future! lol
It's not that I hated it...I was just in a lot of pain all the time, couldn't walk without limping, was an emotional wreck and his stupid mom ruined the most of it with all her negativity and trying to avoid the fact I was preggers. I loved the fact that I was pregnant...I loved the way my big belly looked, I just hated how heavy and weighed down I felt...I hated the weight gain, and sleepless nights...I hated her stupid hiccups inside my belly because they were nearly constant!!! They used to bring tears to my eyes and stress me out because I couldn't make them stop! She loved to kick my ribs...ugh!!!
But funny enough, I LOVED being in labor! Weird huh? I just loved being center of attention and knowing she was almost out...i loved how I was barely in any pain because the epidural froze me from under the boobies down to my toes!! I didn't feel a bloody thing! It rocked!
I sometimes miss being pregnant only because I loved knowing that I was the most important person to her and being the only one able to hold her and feel her the way I did. I had her all to myself...I miss that part! But now, I have to say, I love that I can pass her to her papa and say "you change her this time!"
I don't post here a lot but I had to reply to this because I feel that way a lot. It upsets me I look at her now, she's 8 months old and I feel like I never got to stop and take in everything when I was pregnant.. just enjoy it. Especially now that my sister is pregnant and every *little* thing is so special.
I had a great pregnancy physically but emotionally it was hell!
I'm hoping that next time things will be better, but it won't be my first time anymore

I'm not sure I'm the best person to answer this question since I'm still pregnant and nearly due lol. I think that I've gotten to enjoy a lot of things during my pregnancy. I've enjoyed feeling her move and seeing my stomach get bigger and bigger. However, and maybe I'm crazy or maybe it's just because I'm so close to my due date, I really don't like being pregnant. Maybe it's because my fiance didn't treat me like I was "special" or something. I've had to do everything I did before I was pregnant so maybe that's why I thought I would enjoy it more then what I have. Of course, I'm sure in like 3 months I'll look back and say I WISH I WERE STILL PREGNANT lol.
