i don't really belong on this thread, but, fwiw, i actually pretty much *hate* being pregnant, and i love giving birth.
i don't have complicated or high-risk pregnancies, but i have just about every crappy discomfort in the book all.pregnancy.long. that said, we plan on more kids, but who knows really? it took years to get pg with dd (i have pcos), i've had several losses, and dh and i are getting older. ok,
so i'll be 28 when this baby is born and dh will be almost 33, but i don't see my body having an easier time in my 30's. and if i get pg on track how i have with the last 2, #4 wouldn't be born until i'm 30. doesn't sound like fun.
and we're getting ready to build a straw-bale house and start a homestead, so we'll see what happens! we really would love more kids though.........
