Do you miss being pregnant?

I'm going to start having to direct my questions and threads to you moms with babies. Since its just me, Katie, and Amanda left.

So do you miss your pregnant belly or being pregnant? Or not at all? I have grown quite attached to the belly, but I really really want to meet my baby and have more options for clothes. I've had an easy pregnancy and I've mostly enjoyed it minus the short lived SPD and the morning sickness.

I'm sure Jessica's answer will be "NO!!!" Haha.

Lol, I was thinking Jessica would be like NO! BTW, Jess.. miss ya! I know you're busy though Blum 3

Elizabeth, I don't think I'll miss being pregnant. I've had it pretty easy also but I'm just ready for my baby.. for my body back.. and to be able to exercise and move a lot easier than I do now!!

HECK NO! But honestly, I haven't really had time to even think about "Hey! I'm not pregnant any more!" She had her first appt yesterday (which I will post about) and just out of habit I grabbed my mat jeans. I'm not even sure I can fit in my regular jeans yet, but I'm not aiming to try to do anything until my c-section heals up some.

I DO miss the... specialness? of being pregnant. People knew you were pregnant and all those annoying questions came your way.. and now that I have a little baby, I'm special still, but people won't know I have a baby unless she's with me. Does that make sense? But as far as "being" pregnant - no. It'll take me a little while to get back into the non-pregnant way of life. I still eyeball things and think - that's going to make my stomach hurt...lol

'this! The first few days home were hard but I feel like I'm more in tune with baby now and am actually able to keep up with him w/ my milk supply this time around.
Honestly I havent thought too much about not being pregnant. I still look like I'm five months along so that keeps me from going many public places lol. I know it takes time though.

Oh, Elizabeth, I hope your DH wants a big family. Wink
Yes, I love being pregnant (except the horrible m/s) and I have always missed it after the baby is born.

I do kind of miss it, but I dont miss the discomfort and difficulty bending with my belly in the way!

Only 3 people left!? WOW!!! I wonder which one of is next. . . lol
I can't really if I will miss being pregnant since I am currently pregnant. I too am ready to have my little baby in my arms. Smile The whole weight gain has been one of my biggest issues. I miss being able to work out and I miss my old body. I can't wait to get back to my old body so I can wear more clothes. I have like three outfits that I can wear, there tight though. And the swollenness has also been bad , extremely bad . And the stress of being pregnant for the first time.
But when my little baby kicks my tummy, my heart melts and I tend to forget about all the negatives and discomforts.

Yes me too. Well I want at least one more. Sounds like DH is on board for that, which is suprising since he's always just wanted one. But I'm trying to take it all in and enjoy every minute. I plan to do the same when Henry is here. Can't wait to snuggle him.
