Daizy914:  I’m still currently pregnant, lol. I’m only in my second trimester with my first child and so far it’s been pretty breezy other than occasional headaches. As I get deeper in to my 2nd tri (19 weeks next week) the headaches have started to ease immensely. I never had morning sickness and my hormone levels have been seemingly… normal to me; nothing out of the ordinary! Fiance says I’ve actually been sweeter since I’ve been pregnant, haha. I have a few friends that had really rough pregnancies so they scoff at me when I talk about my easy pregnancy. I’m embracing the bodily changes thus far since there haven’t been many but I’m sure once delivery day comes that will ALL change.

Daizy914:  It was alright. I had all-day morning sickness a good portion of my first pregnancy, and bad headaches throughout both. My firstborn tucked up right under my ribs for the last 6 weeks and that was really uncomfortable. But feeling the movement was incredible. And people were very attentive and interested, so that was nice. And it was pretty cool to be sitting there and realize, “I’m growing a human being, like, a real live person is being formed inside me RIGHT NOW.” All in all, I prefer not being pregnant, but it had it’s moments.

I loved being pregnant!  I had a pretty easy pregnancy, no morning sickness, no real issues. Like PP said it is awesome to realize you are growing a person.  I loved feeling her move and getting to know her personality.  I am super excited to start TTC after I get married in August so I can experience it again with someone who is equally as excited.

I’m at week 14 currently and honestly I really really do not like being pregnant. I feel awful for saying that because I am so blessed to be pregnant and I can’t wait to meet my little one but I have had really awful hyperemisis from week 5 which has hospitalised me 3 times with sickness.  It has not been an easy journey.  I lost my job through it and I am basically relying on my partner for everything even bringing me water. I have finally managed to get the vomiting under control but it hasn’t been easy and I hope so much that it starts to ease off further as the pregnancy progresses.  As it is it has seriously put doubts in my head about having any more children after this one as hyperemisis sufferers often have it in multiple pregnancies. This being said I love my wee baby bump and I look forward to feeling better so that I can just enjoy knowing I am making life and getting excited.

I am going to be totally honest. I had a pretty easy pregnancy up until the early morning I had my son. The bad things I didn’t like was getting blood drawn, having to pee a lot, skin being drier than normal, and constanly getting sick a lot. Other than that it was pretty easy until the early morning I had my son. I had preclamsia and had to get an emergency c-section. Overall all that I went through was worth it to have a healthy and happy baby. I love my son more than anything in the world just not looking forward to being pregnant again for another couple of years at least.

I think those fears are completely natural I have gained so much weight and not just the glamorous baby bump and my skin is so dry and iv gave mounds of blood for tests etc. It is sp hard being pregnant and don’t even get me started on the pain of child Birth and the problems that arise with that.  But it is a miracle and we do it because it will be worth it. Pat on the back for all ladies xx

I am only 7w4d, and I am thrilled to be having a child, but NO, I am not enjoying it at all. I feel sick and tired almost all the time. I hate the nausea, heartburn, and throwing up. I am glad that it’s not worse though. I am optimistic that it will become more enjoyable in the 2nd trimester. It will have to get better for me to be crazy enough to be willing to go through it for a second time!

Nope. Hated it. The most uncomfortable time in my life… BUT! I love my daughter and couldn’t imagine life without her.

I envy women who enjoy their pregnancies!

Yep, hated it all. Incredibly sick the whole time, super tired, pre-eclampsia, strangers talking about my body, everything. Hated pitocin, hated magnesium sulfate, hated three days in labor, actually kinda liked the c-section. HATED almost all of it. 

 

But I can’t wait to do it again :).

most uncomfortable  37 weeks of my life! I basically hated everything about it, except my daughter…she’s pretty damn awesome And I couldn’t imagine a life without her in it! I used to really hate it when women would tell me how amazing pregnancy is and how much they loved it too lol. I didnt gain any weight until the very end though and then I blew up like the good year blimp….I gave birth in the middle of summer in Florida after 38 hours of labor. I also really hated people either commenting on my belly or constatly wanting to touch me.
