Quoting Traci:

All my friends and especially my OBGYN think I'm crazy. I absolutely LOVE being pregnant. My daughter who is now 1 was supposed to be our last child. My whole pregnancy I was cherishing every moment. I felt so sad that I would never be pregnant again. Every time I went to my doc, she said "You ready to have that baby now?" and I'd tell her no way, I'd being pregnant for another year if I could! She told me that was the very first time she'd every heard a woman say that throughout her whole career! Lucky for me, my kids don't like to come out on their own and I have to be induced so I got to be pregnant for an extra week and a half! We've got three kids, but I'm begging my husband for one more! I'm hoping to wear him down. It seems to be working...hehehehe.


You are not crazy!  I did not want my pregnancy to be over either!!!  (But that was mostly because I was TERRIFIED of labour!)  I never experienced that "Get this baby out NOW!" thing that most moms do as their due date approaches (or passes!) 



 



I don't want to be pregnant any time soon but even though I was sick or in pain through a lot of my pregnancy I still really enjoyed it and am looking forward to doing it again (it's having the second baby at home that is making me wait!  I'd get pregnant next week if I could incubate for a couple of years!)



 



I hope your husband caves! haha! :~D

I miss being pregnant and how everyone treated me "special". Now it all about the baby and sometimes I feel like I'm "just the mom". I know that sounds selfish. I love my baby and everyone gives him smiles and attention because he is just so darn cute! But I miss the way I felt special growing a precious life inside me. Loved feeling the baby move inside me. Then I remember the sleepless nights and raging hormones. Reality check. Ok, I feel better and an ok not being pregnant right now.

I loved being pregnant. I am one of the few that do not get the morning sickess or really any negative effects. I do feel jelous as well knowing how wonderful it is to know that you have a beautiful life waiting to arrive within your body. I am happy to say that this is the year we are going to try for one more. I can not wait!!!

Yes! And you know, the really funny thing about it is that I was SO uncomfortable at the end, but it was such a wonderful experience, I do miss it. Then I think of the first three months with my colicky daughter and I know that I can wait. But yes, I do miss it. It's the only time in life when it's a good thing to show off a huge belly, when it's ok to take the elevator when you're only going up or down one floor, when people look at you in fear that you could go at any time, when you get to pick the restaurant eveyr time...good memories! :)

I loved the feeling of being in my own little world. It was just me and my precious little baby in my tummy. I'm looking forward to being pregnant again - I've just got to convince the other half now!! Haha!

I have my days when I really miss being pregnant!! Then there are days when I really miss my baby being a newborn. I think what I miss most is feeling the baby move.

Sometimes I get jealous, but for different reasons. I HATED being pregnant. I had bad bad morning sickness the entire 9 months. All i did was sleep and throw up. It made it really hard to be excited and enjoy my pregnancy. So whenever I hear people talk about how much they loved being pregnant, or whenever I see that happy pregnant woman just glowing in the grocery store, it's hard not to be a little jealous. Especially since I don't plan on having any more children, so my one and only pregnancy was no fun at all. 



At least I got a beautiful sweet baby out of it!   =)

This is funny, I kinda felt bad feeling this way! So many people I know now are pregnant after I'm not anymore and I do kinda feel this pang of jealousy. I swore I would never miss the feeling of being kicked and beaten from the inside...but sometimes I have to admit I reminise about it and think how special I felt! Not enough to do it again right now haha! It's a really strange emotional thing to go through...but I do understand completely!

I totally miss being pregnant!! But after 4 kids in 5 years (now 3-8 y/o) I don't think I want to add another  one to the mix, though my hubby sure does!! My friends just had twins and it has given my hubby baby fever.
