I'm actually missing being pregnant. I'm so ready for another pregnancy, which is funny, because all I did the last half of this pregnancy was complain. I don't particularly enjoy being pregnant at ALL...but now, I want it back.

My husband says I'm never happy, . I informed him that I want 6 kids. I'm only halfway done,

Well I agree that once your body is just yours, you do miss that companionship (even when it's uncomfy) and the expectation of someone coming. I always miss it too...

But I'm not sure I longed to be pg so soon after. I just miss that connection that doesn't happen any other way all of a sudden having shifted. But I try to remember that they are still ALWAYS with me, just on the outside in my arms/ON my body (vs. in it).

Quoted: 0 Post(s)'s always an adjustment period for me, too... I love feeling this LO wiggle and hiccup inside me, yet the anticipation of seeing and smelling and hearing the baby as well as my DH and other kiddos doing the same...just priceless!

(FWIW, unlike my others, I've been in horrible pain this pregnancy due to SPD, but I bet by the time this one is 18mo or so, I'll be wanting to ttc our #6! Thankfully, I'm happy letting them each have 'baby time' first or I told my DH we'd have 12 kids by now. )

I wouldn't mind being PG again .... not right this minute!! I'm liking the 2 or so years apart.

This PG kicked my a**, so I'd almost like another one, just to 'end' on a better note.

Everyone here thinks we are crazy (except for our preist), but DH and I are both open to more children.

Right now, I'm going to ENJOY all the ones that I have here with me!!
