I want to say that I understand you still love your children more than anything even if you didn't enjoy being pregnant. When we found out we were pregnant with our second child, I was very excited. Well, until about the last couple of months. Pregnancy is the best experience. I have met a few ladies that admitted they didn't like it at all. I had it pretty easy, I didn't have morning sickness. I think that does it too a lot of women.

Well, I had mixed feelings about it. I loved it, but towards the end I hated it. But now that I'm not pregnant, I really miss being pregnant. It's terrible. I miss it so much. I remember after I had my little girl, I just had these intense crying fits where I just wanted to stuff her back in and keep her there!

I loved being pregnant despite also being sick for almost 5 months. I had horrible morning sickness, in fact it should be known as all-day-sickness! There was no pattern to it, and also sadly enough for me, I wasn't even NOT HUNGRY, so I was constantly hungry and craving food and eating... and then puking. Funny little aside when I was about 15 weeks or so. I didn't look pregnant yet, I didn't pop out till around 7 months. I went to the swap meet during the weekend with my husband, and while he was buying a tool, I felt the urge to puke. Since there were no trash cans readily available, I just picked a spot that wasn't where a vendor had their items laid out! I can't help thinking that passerbys probably thought I had too much to drink the night before or similar! The best part was after my stomach settled I got to watch all the little movements in my belly, and she got hiccups regularly too. I miss feeling that. I used to talk to my belly all the time and tell her that mommy loved her. We also exposed her to all sorts of fun things, from guitar (my husband plays) to all of our music and older kids' plays and choir and band concerts while she was 'cooking'. She still likes guitar, classic rock, and country which was what we played a lot of. It's a little bittersweet as she grows because we are not planning to have another baby.

Yes, the movements were awesome. I thought I was such an expert with the second kid that I thought I could feel him move at like 3 months! I don't think we are having another one either, but I want a girl! So far 2 boys.

When the doctor told me that I was pregnant, I was very excited. Throughout my pregnancy till the delivery I always felt happy. After delivery another type of happiness took over.

I liked it. I liked watching my belly grow and know there was a little human being inside of me. The only thing I didn't like was the swollen ankles if I had been on my feet to long that day. Lucky for me, it only happened once while I was sleeping, but the pain woke me up and it hurt like hell! I hope to never go through that kind of pain ever again.

I loved being pregnant. I'd do it again too if we were better set than we are now. Only thing I could do without is the morning sickness but even that wasn't bad cuz it was only once a day first thing in the A.M.

I loved being pregnant! I had morning sickness with my first pregnancy, but I still loved being pregnant. I loved watching the baby move and feeling her move inside me. And hearing the heartbeat was great. If I could, I would get pregnant again!
