I know a lot of woman who loved being pregnant personally I hated it. I loved teh fact I have a little person growing inside, but I was on and off bedrest and in a lot of pain. I was so ready to have my child. Also I neer gained that much weight until the end, and even then people were like you are not about to hav eyour baby I was like uh yeah. I gained a total of twenty pounds my best friedn gained that much by 4 months. How was your pregnancy?

Hey there! Being on & off bedrest must've really sucked huh? I loved almost everything about being pregnant, especially the feeling I get whenever my baby moves inside my tummy. The the mroning sickness, and nausea goes away after a while but the stretchmarks will always be here on my skin.

I am one of those people who did not get strechmarks from pregnancy I already had them. Me and my sister all did, because of us losing chubby baby fat. WEird huh? But anyway my strech marks were really lite not noticable, but they got darker. I used cocoa butter and medrma nd it actually has made them lighter again. I don't mind them as long as they are lighter. Makes it easy to cover in a bathing suit.

i loved being pregnant...all four times. i wish i could have a few more but it isnt easy having so many children. it is fun though!! i gained 60 lbs with my first, 36 lbs with my second and 46 lbs with each of my 3rd and 4th children. i was on bedrest with my second one for about 4 weeks. that was hard, but worth it. i know a lot of people that just hated being pregnant though. i had placenta previa with two of my 4 pregnancies. i had preterm labor with 2 of them as well. but all was great!! i have 4 wonderful children and lots of great memories to hold on to!!

My pregnancy was great although my legs ached and were swollen most of the time I love being pregnant. I think that was the best thing that ever happened to my body. I got to keep the curves I wanted and lost the curves I didn't want. I gained 80pounds when i was pregnant , but i was also 98 pounds when i found out i was pregnant. The only time I hated being pregnant was when I had to work,try carrying around 80 extra pounds and then working in a hosptial taking care of other people who like to pull and tug on you basically saying that they could care less if i was pregnant or not just as long as i could come and take them to the bathroom and bring them water and wash people who can wash themselves. I hated that part of preganacy,as you probally could tell:)

What i love most about being pregnant is the fact that i was bringing a new life into the world. The kicking and poking of the baby inside my stomach made me feel so good. I love it when i get to see my baby ultrasound and I love the attention and the pamper i got from my husband and family. The difficult part of being pregnant is when i gave birth by a cesarian section, it's very painful due to major surgery OUCH!!! But it's all worth the pain when i finally delivered my baby...It's such a great feeling!

I don't want to be a pregnant and I don't like children.I know my opinion is immature now but actually I don't want to be a pregnant.Pregnancy,HORRIBLE!My mother told me about her pregnant experience--painful,careful and hard.Ya,I don't want to try it,NEVER.Maybe I am selfish,anyway,I don't want to be a pregnant.

no, i loved being prego. BUT i was not sick, only gained 17 lbs, never was put on bedrest. didn't crave anything really. it was too easy, which scares me cuz that may mean when we get prego again, it will be total opposite, and it'll be a huge struggle. they say every pregnancy is different, even if you've had 6 kids, they all are different...yikes! sorry to hear your story. hope you're now enjoying your child more outside of the womb!! ;-)

I loved my first one after the first few months (sick every time I even MOVED). This time, I'm hating every minute of it, but its not the baby, its my weight and related problems making me miserable.

For the most part, I hated it. I loved feeling the baby kick, I loved giving birth. But, I could leave the rest.

honestly I loved being pregnant once I got past the morning sickness. Once I felt the baby move I knew that it was all worth it and will be totally worth it in the end.

I love my children more than anything in the world, but I LOATHED being pregnant. I had so many complications I sometimes wonder how I managed to get through it twice. I love the idea of having another baby, but the next one will have to be an adoption.

I had mixed feelings about being pregnant. The beginning part I really didn't care for, but once I started feeling him move around it was nice. I first felt him at 16 weeks then at 17 and then not again until about 20 weeks or so. I liked the preggo belly for about 2 months lol. When I hit 38 weeks I was so done. I just wanted him to come already! I exercised regularly throughout my whole pregnancy and still gained almost 50lbs!
