Sort of sad today

I can't believe I am in my last few months of being pregnant. I am 99% sure we are done having kids. 4 is a lot for us, especially with one that is special needs. Feeling this little guy wiggling around in my belly feels very emotional for me right now. I want to soak up every moment. Especially with my healthy middle two kids. They are so wonderful and I don't want to miss anything.

Awww, sending you a big hug. :bighug: Wish I could say the same thing, but I am not a happy pregnant person haha. But we are two and through, so this is our last as well.

It's not that I like being pregnant....it is just sad to me today for some reason.

I hear you. It is sad that this short phase where you had the baby as close to you as you can possibly have them and providing them with all their nourishments and needs etc. will be gone. I will be sad too when the very short newborn/infant stage is gone!

I feel that way too at times. When she is moving a lot or kicking I get sad to think it may be the last time I feel this. DH says we are finished and I think so too - but I'm not ready to make any final decisions.

I understand how you all feel. I was sad & soaked it all up (pregnancy, nursing, etc) with my dd Violet b/c she was supposed to be it. =/

I'm grumpy pregnant this time like Jules. I just want my body back....well, not my boobs, but it would be nice if my free will could pay me a visit.

I get emotional about it as well. Sometimes when I am by myself and he starts moving around I just sit and watch and think about how sad it is that I will probably never get to experience this again. Being pregnant isn't all roses and gumdrops but to me it's amazing to know that you are growing and giving life. I think I miss that thought the most. I am pretty sure that Ryan will be our last baby. I always wanted to have 3 kids but Ryan makes 3 babies for my husband and he is adamant that Ryan is it.

This may be odd but I *tried* to feel that way.

I never wanted pregnancy and, given that so many people absolutely love it and/or get hugely emotional about never getting to experience it, a little part of me hoped to like it and savor it. But no. I'm down with kids, always wanted kids, and just didn't expect to go about it through pregnancy. And I guess I'm a little tiny bit glad I have experienced pregnancy only so I can say, "Nope, not for me" when people say I would love being pregnant if only I knew. I'm excited for this to be over and not happen to me again!

I think that you experienced PREGNANCY though, not pregnancy. Your experience is not one that a majority of us will ever experience. I am like you when it comes to pregnancy, but maybe you might enjoy a singleton pregnancy more than you think.

This is a good reminder to me. I think this is our last, but I'm not savoring it at all. I'm embarrassed to say I'm wishing it was over.

Sometimes I have the thought about this being my last pregnancy but it doesn't really get to me yet. It may in a month or so when I am in the "homestretch". Everyday I feel horrible (like today LOL) I just get excited thinking this is my last pregnancy. I am DONE.

I can understand how you feel. I did not love being pregnant in the beginning because I felt so crappy, but now that I can feel baby move around I sometimes think about how I will miss that. I am feeling quite well though at the moment so that helps Smile
