Aside from the constantly full bladder, nener ending NEED for things with massive amounts of sodium, intense cramps each day, utter exhaustion, and the roller coaster of moods that I am each day… I LOVE being pregnant. I love feeling that someone depends on me fully. My husband depends on me emotionally, but my child depends on me in every aspect. The love that I feel towards this unborn child is just amazing.
Who’s with me?

You caught me on a bad day. While I love the IDEA of being pregnant, the actuality of it, not so much. Of course I love my daughter and I love being able to bond with her, but I could do without the stuffed nose, achy back, bad sleep, constant peeing, waddling walk, breathlessness, nausea, etc etc.
Sorry I am just not feeling well today!!

@chicagowife: I know I will definitely will have days like that. I’m trying to be positive while I still can be 🙂

I hated being pregnant, but now I’m starting to miss it a little. There’s definitely something special about pregnancy…

I hate being pregnant. It sucks. I mean, I love that I get to be the lucky one carrying the baby, but it’s really sucky. The pain of my uterus growing, throwing up from random smells, constantly peeing, anytime I get hungry I get angry, and so much more. Pregnancy sucks. The idea of it is awesome like @chicagowife: said. However, this is my second pregnancy and my last went all the way to week 34 when our baby died, so I probably look at this a little differently because I could go through all of this again and walk away emptyhanded again.
Edit: I’m 16 weeks, so I have a long way to go.

Uh no. And I have a long way to go. I’m not ok with something taking over my body and right now my nipple feels like it’s being poked with knives.

No, but I’m trying. Does that count?

@firsttimemom: I feel bad — you were trying to be positive and we came along and gave you a wave of negativity. Sorry!!
I will say, I wouldn’t give it all up for anything in the world. Even if I mostly hate it. Ha. 😉

I didn’t mind and kind of liked being pregnant with my first child, with this one it hasn’t hit me, but hoping it will when I go for my first appt. next week, I’m sure we will all have our happy and miserable days, but just think the end result will be beautiful!!

Nope. I just can’t wait until the baby is born and I’ll be myself again. I feel like I’m in a constant fog.

I’m with you.
I do love being pregnant. Sure there are the stretchmarks, the pains, the sore nipples, and the awful 1st trimester sickness, but overall I feel it suits me well. I haven’t gained a ton of weight, I’m still exercising and feeling good. I’m almost done with my second trimester and I can feel my baby moving every day. It’s such an intimate and special time between my son and I. Like you said, it’s this very special connection between you and your baby. I really treasure this time.

Hell to the naw. I love feeling the baby move (mostly- less so when he kicks certain things, then we have to have a talk about how “if you do that again, I swear to you that you will never ever see Toy Story”), but other than that it’s been pretty miserable. I’ve been super sick, and before TTC I had to go off a couple of daily medications (like migraine meds) that really helped my daily quality of life, so I think that’s made it all the harder.

I love that im the one who gets to be pregnant.Im the one who will feel all the movements and bring our baby into the world… but being pregnant sucks the big one. With all the pains and aches and crazy-lady-hormones and a list of all the things i CANT do…. sigh… i wish pregnancy lasted only like 5 months..

DH and I have a huge case of baby fever, we’ve even decided to TTC earlier than planned and aren’t exactly being careful about things at present. So I’ve been reading blogs, WB, researching, and was definitely starting to freak out a little with all the discomforts of pregnancy. Now that I’ve read this thread I think I’m officially terrified!!
I think of how big a baby I am when it comes to my cramps, nausea etc. and am beginning to wonder if I can handle it??
That said, each and every one of you ladies impress me. You’re troopers! Hang in there 🙂

Hate it. Hate feeling sick, sore, tired beyond belief. And I hate that it depends on me. What if I do something wrong? And even if I don’t and I lose the baby? Thats a lot of pressure. I can’t wait to have a baby, but so far, I really don’t enjoy the pregnancy…
But I am glad that other people find joy in it. 🙂
