Quoted: 0 Post(s) an opposite opinion to the earlier post re: not missing being pregnant, I'm kind of missing my bump! I was in Starbucks today (love love LOVE their chai lattes and after a night of only four hours sleep, I needed one!) and there was the cutest woman in there with the cutest bump of a belly. And even though I am absolutely head over heals for my daughter, I kind of felt this longing to once again be preggers. I think it was more the anticipation of it all that I missed a little.

Does anyone else feel this way?

I miss feeling kicks, and some ascepts of pg, there are other things that make me happy not to be, like having to run to the bathroom every 30 seconds. I really miss giving birth, it's so great, I can't wait to do it again.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

That's absolutely me. I miss the special feeling of having Brady all to myself (in a way...gosh, I'm so selfish!!!), the wonderful kicks, and the anticipation of his special arrival. I'm anxiously waiting to do it again!! For me, though, it was a struggle to get and stay pregnant, so the moments were very cherished. Now, I'm terribly in love with him on the outside, but I definitely enjoyed and loved every moment (even the difficult moments, which for me, were quite a few!).

I told dh tonight I can't wait to have another one!!! Him...not as anxious for it to happen!!! In fact, he only wats two kids...I miss being pregnant as well even though I tended to complain a lot at the end - in my defense - there was an almost 11lb babe in there so a little griping is OK...
