Anybody else here NOT looking forward...

... to being REALLY pregnant?

Don't get me wrong: I LOVE feeling the baby kick and I LOVE giving birth.
However, I never enjoyed pregnancy - the 7 times I was pregnant.

Anybody else?

I was just starting to get back in shape and now I dread getting as big as a barn. I gained 50+lbs with my last 3 so I'm sure this one will be the same.
I also am happy to be pregnant but I just hate the stretch marks and huge thighs
I also got rid of everything baby related! On one hand it's fun to buy all new stuff but I'm frugal so the cost issue is really hard on me...

Oh, the weight thing: I had just lost 28 pounds since joining WW in the summer!
I was feeling all excited and pumped up about getting my body back and fitting in smaller jeans and clothes ... and then I go and get knocked up!

At least I have 9 adorable lbs to look forward to in July!

I can mostly do without the whole pregnancy and newborn phase, really! It's only because I know it's eventually worth it that I was okay with getting pregnant a second and third time. I have never functioned well with no sleep! I love the nice parts of pregnancy, feeling the baby move and such, but with both previous pregnancies I got so sick that it's mostly an incredibly miserable experience for the first, oh, 6 or 7 months.

I'm keeping up hopes that maybe I won't get horribly sick this time...and that my pelvis won't separate...and that I won't get terribly constipated....

What was I thinking??

I am NOT looking forward to being pregnant. The heaviness, the weight gain, lack of intimacy, blech. I was just starting to feel back to normal and now we're starting it all over again

I'm already feeling frumpier and it hasn't even really begun yet. I love to swim but I feel funny about swimming in all of that chlorine this early on...is that silly? Also, with the weather changing I'm just not exercising as much. I feel like early pregnancy can be so tenuous and I want to be gentle and not get my body temp. up too much. I think I'm cautious due to a few prior losses. The first three months are rough - when you aren't showing quite yet but look like you're drinking a few beers every night. Oh well!!! I'm just sooooo happy that we're preggers - I'm living in the moment and hoping that little one implants and builds a big beautiful, health placenta!!!

lol..I am looking forward to it. With dd, I never looked pregnant. EVER! I carried long, and wide, and not out - so I never had that cute belly. Plus I worked up until a week before I had her, was going to school and gradding from university as well, did a big major city move, and my husband was jobless for the last 3 months - so I didnt get to actually enjoy the pregnancy.

Bring on the large!

I thought I was a beautiful pregnant woman.. but I felt like crap. I've got m/s now, and last time I felt good for about one month until I got heartburn and backaches for the next 5 months.

I'm new at this - I don't know yet how I'll feel about being super pregnant. I'm definitely curious to find out! I feel like I might sort of like it, but since I know is very unpleasant for some people...yeah. We'll see!

Yeah, pregnancy was definitely not a joy for me. I had all day sickness (thankfully for only 6 weeks), heartburn from hell, monkey toes in my ribs, ligament pain, a crappy labor and delivery. Oh, and gestational diabetes. I'm mildly optimistic that this pregnancy will be more pleasant!

I'm actually anxiously waiting for it! : Like SoPac said (lol about looking like we've had a few beers) I don't like just looking bloated in the beginning. I love having that big belly (most of the time) and I'm going to try to cherish it knowing it will be the last time (even though that's what I did with Maya because I thought that was the last time. ) Of course I'm NOT looking forward to the back pain and sleepless nights.
