So today I was in the store w/ Elijah for the 1st time and I happened to see a pg girl. Suddenly, I missed being pg. The attachment of knowing you have life inside you. I felt a little sad that I don't have that anymore but of course I'm so happy to have my beautiful happy peace child earthside now.<br><br>
Anyone else miss being pg? It's weird cuz after I had Marley and I would see someone pg I would think to myself, "Glad that's not me!" But this time I'm like, "Aww, I miss that!" Do you think that having a 2nd child has anything to do with those feelings?<br><br>
I also almost cried the 1st time I drove my car after having Elijah. Because I wasn't pg anymore and the last time I was in the car, I was pg. It felt really strange.<br><br>
I miss "the belly"

Well, I deffinately do not miss being pg! I'm still in that "ahhhhhh, relief at last!" stage. I don't like being pg. Its like a torture chamber of flesh.<br><br>
However, Behn is 2 weeks old today and he's gotten so big! I was just telling dh how I want to have another one because he's not a tiny baby anymore.<br><br>
If I'd have heard myself say this 2 weeks ago I'd have given myself a good smack and gotten my tubes tied. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> But seriously, babies are soooo precious and looking at my little guy just makes me want to do it all over again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: Not right away of course, 2 years sounds good, but I do know I want to do it again. Appearently I wasn't adequately traumatized by the whole experience!

ha ha, i don't think i really miss being pg per say but in some ways i miss the anticipation of birth. my sil just found out she's pg and i'm a tiny bit jealous of the excitement of it... but not really of being physically pg. i was so excited about vbacing... but then it didn't work. so i miss that "before" feeling.<br><br>
i do think i want to do it again though. even with 2 under 2!!

I did not miss being pregnant at all until the last couple days. I missed having this little girl to myself is the biggest part of it. We've had visitors or went to visit every day since her birth 9 days ago. Today is her and my first day together alone. I'm really enjoying it!

i'm not sure about having more than this one so i am getting kind of nostalgic thinking that i may never have those experiences again...i felt so good and so beautiful and healthy between about 20-36 weeks...now i look deflated and feel weak and tired. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> but, i have my girl!

this time around I do. I think it had to do with the fact that I had an awesome doctor who was very hands off (which I love) My body was allowed to do what it needed to do. Having a homebirth too made it much easier for me to have these feelings. Things just went so well. So, EcoMama looks like we are the crazy ones<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Nope, not at all. I breezed through my first preggo with DS, but this time around with DD, it was a lot tougher on me mentally, emotionally, and physically. So I don't miss it one bit. Plus, I'm SO glad she's here now!<br><br>
I can't imagine being a couple years older than I am right now (we'd wait a few years), and it being more taxing than it was this time around...so I think we might be done with the two we have...<br><br>
So yep, EcoMama7 and coco4cloth, you two are nuts! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

I totally miss being pregnant. I loved it (at least I think I did). My DH doesn't seem to remember it that way though.<br><br>
I also am probably not having any more and I loved the feel of Marlow jumping around and kicking me (which I guess she does now too).<br><br>
I would love to be pregnant again!

I don't miss the discomforts of being pregnant or the worry as the days kept going and going and going and baby wasn't coming out. However, I do feel sort of lonely in this big body all by myself. I am soooo enjoying having her in my arms, but do miss her in my belly too.

NOPE! Didn't have time to adjust to NOT being pregnant before finding out we're pg again! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Seriously though, this time I hope I GET a belly. Last time I delivered too soon to really get all big and pregnant. And at least this time I'm not due in the summer. February is much more do-able for me, weather-wise. I HATE heat!

I miss the baby moving around in there the most! He is so strong that he bruised me 5 times from the inside out, though. THAT I don't miss!<br><br>
Heather, enjoying life with dh, the first 9, and #10 born 6/19/06!

heh, the only thing that gets me through some days is thinking "well, at least i'm not still pregnant!" although i get the feeling the baby would be happier some days if i could just tuck her back in for a few hours. she feels the sling is a poor substitute.

Uh..in a word..<br><br>
NO!!!!!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
That was the last one for me, and I am pretty comfortable with it. Although, it is really the delivery I wouldn't EVER want to do again!!<br><br>

i think i miss some of it. I miss the big belly, it was fun to play with.. and I loved the feeling of her inside. The big thing i miss about being pregnant (besides the fact that when I was pregnant i hadn't had a c-section) is that she was safe and I couldn't mess up. Out here... I just can make too many mistakes!
