For me...I will miss the little kicks and punches the most...knowing she's safe and warm and happy inside of me...how nice people are to me all of the time because of my big belly. And of course, using pregnancy as an excuse for: eating bad things, eating good things, not being up to DTD with hubby, not cleaning the cat litter box, crying at the drop of a hat, being forgetful, and being clumsy/dumb all the time.
Single mama to S ~ 6/09
I have enjoyed having my tummy held by my husband and I just don't want to give that up yet.
Geez... I'm going to cry.
Stupid hormones will NOT be missed.
I am so ready to not be pg and for this to be my last one. This is pg 7 and baby 10. I think that helps me with my feelings. Also, I am in so much pain constantly that even a little baby kick hurts and makes me want to cry. I am not enjoying this pg.
This is actually nice though because I am to the point I am SO happy about the idea of a tubal that I hope I never regret it.
Carlin - loving life with DH and 2 amazing daughters
I think what I'm going to miss is that, right now, mothering/parenting/the baby is nothing but potential. Everything is perfect, because it's still in the future, and yet it's *so* close, like planning a garden during the winter months. My labor and birth are wonderful, breastfeeding is working fine, my baby is calm and happy, my DH and I are closer than ever, working as a team, never disagreeing about parenting stuff... at least that's how it is in the world of my daydreams. There are no weeds or slugs in this metaphorical garden. I know that as soon as my baby is born, I will be catapulted from my imaginary daydreamy world into the real one. I can't wait, and at the same time it's scary. I want to be Perfect Mom... Who doesn't exist!

Weary SuperMama to my amazing neurodiverse 6 y.o. DD and to my on-the-go neurotypical 3 y.o. DS
feeling the baby move inside me. i don't know if i'll get the "phantom movements" like i did with dd after she was born, but that was sort of creepy when i did. it went on for about 5 months after i gave birth last time!
