My little guy is 1 week 1 day old. Nope.....do not miss being pregnant at all! I can finally move around freely and sleep how I want.

I am also not thinking about another one. I am trying to enjoy every second with this precious baby.

2 weeks old and other than NOT having a screaming infant in the house, I miss nothing about being preggo at ALL!
IF we have more (big if) it won't be for 5 yrs... so i'm putting the thought waayyy out of my mind

Jordan is 6 days old I miss being pregnant a little but I'm definitely enjoying my little guy. Everyone keeps asking when the next one is coming and even DH has brought it up a few times (saying if he didnt have to help out at night he'd want another one ) but I've got my hands full with two for now and we cant afford another atm. Maybe once the boys are in school I'll want another but I very well may not.. just something time will tell I guess.

I miss feeling her in my belly, but that is about it...I love being able to meet her and wouldn't change that for the world...IF we ttc again, it won't be until this one is out of diapers at least!

I love being pregnant but am so glad to have my little guy here. I DON'T miss the SPD pain - that was worse than labor! But I love having the belly, feeling my little one move, and not having to share them with anyone else.

We thought we were done at two children but I think we both really want just one more now. I want to wait three years this time though. First to be in a better financial position and second I want to have time to have my body to myself for a bit.

I have either been pregnant or nursing since March of 2007 and I would love to have some time to myself to get in better shape, lose weight and feel good about the place I am in. Not to mention being able to drink wine and caffeine and eat deli meat and tuna, etc.

I'm absolutely loving having my body back. I felt great pregnant, but not like myself.

We're crazy... as weird as it is, I'm looking forward to having another baby... I'd really like to be able to have the natural birth I wanted and have my first two babies close in age. We'd like to get pregnant again sometime in 2010, but we're totally enjoying Levi being so tiny and precious right now.

OMG, I feel bad to admit it, but yes on both accounts. We cannot even have an "oops" until we move which will be at least 3 years. And I don't know how fair it would be to all of us to have more kids. But I was ready to do it all again 24 hours after delivery. I have already called and requested an IUD so I won't even be tempted. I need to move onto the new phase... "Parenting"... and let go even though it has been the time of my life.

Oh, I'm missing being pregnant BADLY!!! Only took about a day and a half after the twins were born before I started t miss it.

I'm actually having a hard time with this. We are done having kids for ourselves. DH doesn't want me to do another surrogacy, and it doesn't make sense for me to do another one since I'm hoping to start nursing school next fall, and I KNOW that being pregnant during nursing school would be a mistake. And I'm guessing my OB will tell me at my postpartum checkup that I shouldn't do any more.

But, oh, man, am I ever having a hard time accepting it!

I'm still pregnant but...TTC...what's that? J/K I know what it is but all of our kids have been surprises, we never planned on getting pregnant(especially 3 times!), we weren't even doing the whole "not trying not preventing" thing like some people do. I wanted kids right away when DH and I got married, him not so much, it was just "that one time" with our first two and failed birth control pills this time....we love our kids more than anything but we are DEFINITELY done, DH is going to get a vasectomy very soon and I even thought about getting my tubes tied too just to double make sure that we didnt get pregnant again, I don't think my body could handle it a 4th time! I feel that my family is going to be very complete with 3 children, I didn't feel like that after my second child was born so I know in my heart that 3 is perfect for us.

Okay I will fess up.....

as much as I disliked being preggo, it was a rough road... and I swore up and down NO MORE!!!! Never again! Even yelled at DH in labor that we would NEVER have sex again.....

Sophie is 10 days old and since she was a day or 2 old I have already been thinking... "the next one" I miss being preggo in that I miss feeling her move and such, but I don't miss all the aches and pains.

I don't wanna go down the TTC road again, that likely will result in fertility clinic visits and all... But I am going to hope and pray for a sweet surprise.
