Did you like being pregnant? Did you have an easy or hard pregnancy? Would you want to do it again?

Hi,

I love being pregnant. I'm fortunate in that both my pregnancies have been picture perfect. I had some mild morning sickness in the beginning with both, but other than that I've felt great.

After this baby, I wouldn't mind having a third, but it will be at least 5 years before we're ready for another. So we'll see how things are going in five years!

~Nay

I loved being pregnant! Haha now that I look back. I complained every second while I was pregnant because I was so impatient to meet my children!

I had difficult pregnancies with my last 2 but loved it because all the misery of the pregnancy was worth it in the end. With this one so far, just some morning sickness here and there.

I loved being pregnant. I had a very easy pregnacy and never had morning sickness and I always slept great! My only downfall was the really swollen feet. They were like 5x the normal size and I could only wear flip flops until my due date in November. I was so happy it didn't snow LOl

I really did not enjoy being pregnant. I had severe hyperemesis until 21 weeks that required constant supervision and frequent hospital visits. I had to stop working at 21 weeks because of it, and I received some bad ultrasound/triple screen results, indicating my daughter may have Downs. (She didn't, but it was very scary and stressful) She measured small and they were concerned that she may have had IUGR. At 24 weeks I developed gall bladder problems that continued until I gave birth. At 28 weeks I went into preterm labor and was on bedrest for two weeks until the contractions stopped. At 34 weeks I went into PTL again and had to receive shots of trebutaline. I got them again at 35 weeks. At 36 weeks I went into labor again but because my daughter was breech my cervix didn't engage past 2cms. At 36.5 weeks I developed pre-eclampsia.

So yeah, my pregnancy wasn't all too fun, lol. I would do it ALL over again, though - my daughter was worth every bit of it.

My first was hard. Had an emergency C-sec. The second time was fast, easy and natural. Yes, I would love to do it again.

When I had morning sickness, or should I say all day sickness , I would eat something light. I swear by it! I would still want to do it all over again, even if I were sick the whole 9 months! The really are worth it.

Isn't it amazing that you could go through all that and still want to do it again?! I'm sorry you had such a tough time though. Maybe the next one will be easier for you!
