Yes and no. I like the beginning. Towards the end, I get put on bedrest which sucks. I think I'd enjoy all of it if I had normal pregnancies.

Not the very beginning or the very end. The middle I like.

Pretty much like cnote. I don't get too sick, just enough to feel icky. Then at the end the heartburn, back pain, and anxiety flare up. But for the most part, yes. I loved being pregnant. I don't want to do it again, bUt I loved it.

I have never had morning sickness, so no issues in the 1st trimester. I don't like the extreme tiredness though, or the aching hips or sciatica in the end. Overall I like it. I'm willing to do it one more time.

i loved being pregnant. i didn't have difficult pregnancies at all, mild m/s with some. i especially liked being all big at the end (my 'big' is not the same as many of you here - i was truly quite small with all 4) and labor was fairly easy for me. the most i pushed was like 3 times. so all in all, yes, i loved being pregnant. and would do it again if i could. i think i would have had a big family if i had not had to stop.

I loved all of it the first three times around, very mild m/s, just a little tired now and again.

With my 4th I was totally exhausted pretty much the whole time, if I went to do groceries in the morning I'd lay on the couch pretty much the rest of the day. My 5th was fine, but I'm not a superhero like some of you, I found it really hard being pregnant with 4 others to care for, and I had a hell-ish delivery. So I am so done and totally okay with it.

Hate it. Theres always that wow moment when the whole amazingness of making people kicks in. But the other 99.9% just plum sucks. The puking, the heartburn, hemroids, varicose veins, stretch marks, well you all know. I really wish that stork would get working.

I HATE IT!!!!!

My first pregnacy wasn't bad at all, my second was okay but there was a lot of turmoil at the time. Any other after that was beyond miserable. At the point that most woman stop having morning sickness mine hits and it hits HARD. I could eat nothing and drinks were also limited. I loose about 15-20 pounds with each pregnancy, sounds great except I gain it all back within weeks cause I was so starved for the previous 6 months. Heartburn is equally bad and I should have owned company in Tums cause they made a butt load of money off of me.

I do. I wouldn't have done it so many times if I didn't But I don't get morning sickness and my labours have all been very fast and easy. This pregnancy has been a lot harder though and will be my last.

No, not at all.

I dont have particuarly bad pregnancies, all were pretty smooth sailing, but I HATE that you seem to become public property and helpless. Having strangers touch my stomach, carry my groceries, offer me seats everywhere, pry into personal life... I know some of it is just good manners, but it irks me because I dont like being made to feel helpless.

I really enjoyed my first 2 pregnancies, other then bad morning sickness with number 2 it was an uneventful pregnancy. Gavin's was a bad pregnancy, I did not enjoy it. Kenan's was super easy, and even though he was a week late, I really enjoyed his pregnancy. This one has been alot like Gavin's, even worse in some ways. I am not sure if this will be my last, but I am leaning that way.
