I hear you!! I HATED being pregnant, all this crap about glowing and feeling feminine and beautiful was all BS!!! I felt fat, and ugly and clumsy and looking at all my size 6 clothes made me want to cry cause I couldn't fit into it anymore!! The only thing that got me through was the fact my precious baby was in there and I had to get through 9 months of hell to get to meet her!! You are not alone!!

[deleted account]

OMG! I completely agree! The whole time I was pregnant I kept waiting for that happy, "glowing" thing that you hear about to happen...9 months later I was in labor and it still hadn't happened! Pregnancy is different for everybody, I get that, but come on...even the easiest pregnancy is uncomfortable. I'm convinced some women just say they love being pregnant because they think they're supposed to. I, too, and a card-carrying member of the "I Hate Pregnancy" club! LOL!

Quoting Andi:

ok... well I know it's really hard, and at times it does suck, but at least you can get pregnant! Think of all the women who can't get pregnant and really want to. Becoming a mother is a great self sacrifice with a huge reward. Sometimes you just have to laugh through the pain and pray a little harder and you will get through it.



AMEN!



I loved being pregnant with my first and only daughter. I had no pain compaired to what I was going throug with irregular periods and all of that crap. I would LOVE to be again, but with having fertility issues it's been impossible. Then I have to listen to my sister in law complain about being pregnant, knowing that I just had an ectopic pregnancy after trying for 7 years and lost it! Part of me wants to scream at some of you, but at the same time I understand how you may feel that way. But try and have a heart for those of us that want to be but can't.....

Which is why i only want one! yes it is absolutely misserable, you feel like a turtle on your back in some cases, and constant pressure huh! do you am sickness as well? good luck on the rest of your adventure, it seems like pregnancy lasts for ever, but once its over you'll never forget how worth it all was in the end,

I don't feel it's an over kill, it's how I felt. People are weird about the word hate, i'm being honest. It's good u had a beautiful pregnancy, I don't think it's up to you to get on here to tell people they shouldn't gripe or tell them how they should feel. That's the whole point of a forum you express YOUR opinions. If you can't respect it dont comment on it. It's just fuckin rude!! I respect everyones opinion I certainly wouldnt tell a woman I've never met how she should feel, cause who am I to judge or comment.

I don't like being pregnnat either... I just love the end product so much that it doesn't matter. I don't like being restricted or constantly sick.

Was going to add that even though the pregnancy with our first child (who is now 7 and a half) was really bad and she was born at 34 weeks due to a placental abruption (that almost took her life and mine)..I would do it all over again, in a heartbeat, to get my sweet little girl.

I am currently pregnant with our 3rd child (30 weeks tomorrow) and even though this pregnancy has been pretty rough on me (major sciatic nerve issues), I really enjoy it. We have gone through 2 miscarriages (1 before our 1st child and 1 before this baby), so I try my best to see the positive in a pregnancy because I have been there when it's taken away from you. I love feeling my baby move and I will deal with any pain or discomfort, as long as my baby is healthy. So, yeah, I am one of the strange ones who love being pregnant...no matter how uncomfortable I may be at times :)

I want another baby, but I hated being pregnant. I didn't have
a normal one so I know why I hated it. I had Hypermesis Gravidarum for four months.(that's where you can't keep anything down, not even water 24/7 and are nauseated the whole time). I started my pregnancy at 170 lbs and after I delivered I was 145 lbs.
If that wasn't bad enough I also had 34 hours of labor, induced after 12 hours, only got to 9 and a half centimeters and ended with an emergency c-section.
My contractions were never consistent until the last 2 hours which by then were 2 minutes apart. For some reason each contraction hurt from beginning to end.
I had 3 epidural refils and then when I had the surgery I got a spinal tap and the left side of my body wouldn't go numb all the way and I ended up feeling them cut me and sew me.
I know I'm complaining but the reason for is I want to know if anyone thinks it's safe for me to try to have another one.
I want a second child but I'm terrified. My daughter is almost 5 now and I'm 30 years old. I can't really put it off much longer.
Please help.

I wouldn't say that I hate being pregnant. I have 5 weeks left before the birth of my first baby and after trying for 4 years I'm trying very hard not to complain. I remember praying for this pregnancy and saying that I would never complain if I could only be blessed with a little one.

That said, it's hard work! I'm tired of being this tired. There is still so much that has to be done around here before baby arrives and I just wish the nesting phase would kick in so I can have a bit of energy! I have never in my life felt this useless and I'm starting to wonder if I'm really this tired or just using being pregnant as an excuse to be lazy or something :)

I don't hate it, but I'm over it now and just want baby to arrive already!

I absolutely hate being pregnant!!! I am actually due tomorrow and wish this baby would COME OUT already!!! I cant sleep or walk comfortably because of all the pressure. My feet are fat as hell and I want to beable to wear cute shoes again. lol I hate it when people say its better when the baby is in your stomach...its easier. That is so not true!!! At least in my opinion. Once the baby is born then I can actually walk..without waddling..and carry something heavier than my purse. This is my second child and I much prefer carrying a baby and huge diaper bag than a gigantic stomach!!! I feel better now that I got that all out....Im just SOOOO ready to have this baby.

I hated pregnancy too! I had morning sickness for the first 7 months and then was put on bed rest bc I swelled up like a water balloon. My delivery was awesome though. And having my son has made it all worth it. But there won't be another one for a long time so i can forget about being pregnant!

don't feel bad. i hated it too, except for feeling him move. some people's bodies and hormones just react better to it. i got friends who have hated one pregnancy and then loved another. hang in there baby, you know it's worth it.

Quoting Winthiri:

just morning sickness and feeling really tired, I was always out of breath and wanting to sleep all the time. I was pregnant during summer so it made it all seem worse then it probably is. Like I said I was looking forward to having my baby just not liking what I had to go through to get her. Probably another child not sure, too content and happy with my current child to think about it yet.



Thas understadable, my oldest was born in june down south. The last couple or weeks were miserable for me and I had a beautiful pregnacy. So I cant imagine going through summer pregnant.



All Im saying is if you did not have a complicated pregancy and everything was normal, then using the word hate is overkill. I can understand not likeing the effects and process of pregnancy, but if your willing to do it again dont gripe about it, it must not be that bad. I have frieds that had normal pregnacies and quick births that will never have another biological child again. Now they HATE being pregnant.



I want to talk about who HATED their labors and why?



I HATED my first and was disappointed with the second.

Besides the weight gain what made you pregnancy so bad that you used the word hate? And do you plan to have another child?

It isn't horrible when someone says that they hate being pregnant. Everyone has their own opinion. For me my first pregnancy was almost perfect. The only thing I dreaded was having morning sickness for 6 months straight and being in labor for 20 hours. Otherwise I loved being pregnant with my son Dominic. This pregnancy though is very different. I did have an ectopic pregnancy last year and didn't think I could have another child so fast. I am now 34-35 weeks pregnant with my second son Landon. I am due July 29th but will for sure have him way early. I have been in pre-term labor since week 28. I am taking medication to stop the contractions but my OB-GYN said he will only let me stay on it until week 36 which is around next Thursday...then that will be the beginning of being a mommy of 2! LOL. I am lucky because Dominic is starting Kindergarten this year so they are 6 years apart...perfect timing.

Maybe I'm really weird but I truly loved being pregnant. My son came a month early and I was sad I couldn't be preggers anymore. I loved showing off my bump. Yes I was sick and big with stretch marks but it was so worth it. I can't wait to have more and more children. It was the greatest experience ever.

I thought the first six weeks with an infant, with the sleep depriviation and hormone fluctuations, was way worse than being pregnant. Sure, i was uncomfortable during pregnancy, and I wouldn't want to live like that all the time, but it was what it was and I'm happy that I got to experience bringing a new life into this world. My daughter is the light of my life, and I'd do it all over again.

I LOVED my first pregnancy!! My second one I was sick all the time,for the first 6 months I was sick.I didn't hate it,but at times it wasn't the most wonderful thing.I guess i wouldn't say hate because it is supposed to be a very special time.You are carrying and nourishing your sweet baby,and it's time in your womb is very important.I am now on #3,lol so if that tells you anything,even though you may feel that you hate being pregnant right now,end the end it is all worth it.This one was a complete suprise being that I have an 8 month old!! I was upset when I found out,but the more I thought about it I didn't wanna look back yrs from now and remember being so upset that I couldnt even enjoy being pregnant.So with that said just hang on till the end,even tho it may be hard,and it the end when you see that sweet baby it will all be worth it!!

couldn't have said it any better than that.  are you experiencing difficulties with your pregnancy to make you say this?










By no means did I have an "easy, breezy" pregnancy. I had horrible morning (all day) sickness, had to quit my job at starbucks because the smell of coffee made me nausous, I had really bad heart burn all of the time, I could hardley sleep because my back hurt so much, I had to be induced, tried for a natural birth but ended up having two epurdials because the first one didn't work, and I would do it again in heart beat. Yes it would be nice if becomming and being a mommy was easy but I think you appricate the mirracle of your little one even more because of the hard trials you have to go through. A baby is a blessing, no matter how hard or easy you have it, and even if you don't want it. God will bring some good out of every situation. When it gets hard just think of what your baby could grow up to be. Then, take a deep breath, find a video of a baby laughing, and thank God that he chose you to bring this miracle into the world.






That was so unbeliavably touching! Thankyou so much for that!

I hated my pregnancy as well. And I felt/still feel guilty about it because I did not have a complicated pregnancy at all. I just was not happy while pregnant (and I was also scared to have my baby, super fear of her not taking a breath when she came out). I don't look forward to being pregnant again, plus DH and I are considering having only the one b/c of how trying it is for us to be a parent, not sure we wanna go through this all a second time lol (we love our daughter but man she sure beats us up lol).

I had so many complications and problems during my pregnancy that I was tired, miserable and so stressed the whole time. I would tell my bf almost daily that I just want my body back. Honestly I don't think I want to have another child because of the fear of having to go through all of it again. I'm use to sun and sea living right on the beach and we went on vacation to New York during my early morning sickness-gag gag yuck yuck!!! All of the crazy smells every step you take made it a hundred times worse.

Im glad to hear you had a great experience too. Im the same way. I absolutly loved being pregnant and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I had no sickness at all and I had the quickest labor.  (I had my first baby in less than 8 hours) After my daughter was born, I missed feeling her move!!!

Wow no one enjoys being pregnant. Sorry to say but I loved being pregnant. Today at church while I was feeling my sisters belly (she is pregnant and due in 6 weeks) It made me miss it so much more. I had a really easy pregnancy I didn't have morning sickness or really anything uncomfortable. I was just very very tired all the time. I am looking forward to having a second not sure when but I am excited!!

towards the end of my pregnancy i couldn't wait for the whole thing to be over...then once he was born ( which was a very easy 5 1/2 hour labor) i missed being pregnant..it was weird. towards the end he would never stop moving or kicking my ribs..then he was born and i missed all the movements and the big belly..i'm sure once i'm pregnant with my second i'll probably be wondering why i miss being pregnant, but i do.
