Miss my baby belly
My daughter is 4 years old, and I still feel that way sometimes! But it is so fun watching her learn and grow!
I thought I was the only one, so I wouldn't tell anyone!!! My son is now 9 months old, but I've been anxious to get pregnant again since day-one!!! We'll just wait until his christening and then we'll go for the second!!! Thank God, my husband also wants more babies, so I won't have to convince him....
ugh I so dont miss being prego at all. lol I love having my son here and being able to look and him and know that he is okay :) He is 1 month old and I just love being able to reach my toes and wear pants with actual buttons! haha
I think you're all nuts. Why would I miss my crampy, itchy, thousand pound obstruction of a tummy? No way!
my daughter just turned 6 months and i miss being pregnant too. im so glad someone made a post like this so we can all talk. i was 17 when i had my baby, 18 now. i was so scared. i was okay when i was in labor, but when it came time to push i was terrified. even after she was born, i didnt really wanna hold her cause i was still scared.. post partum depression hit me hard the first 2 weeks, but got better in time.. they put her on my chest and i fell in love. :) i love being able to hold her and kiss her, play and hug her.. but sometimes i look at my belly at all the strech marks and miss having her inside me. i loved that feeling of her always being there. i still even get sad about it sometimes.. but the docs say ppd can last up to a year after baby.
To be honest I miss the baby belly for one thing. Thats the excuse for the extra wieght. I gained 30 lbs when I was pregnant, so everyone would say it was the baby. My son is now 10 months old and I haven't lost a pound. Now i dont have much of an excuse, its all me = (
My daughter is 23months now, but I have missed being pregnant for awhile. I also am upset because I never had that big round belly that most women get. I really didn't get a belly until my last month. I want to have another baby, but I'm a single mother and really want to not have another child until I'm married. I know I'm not old, but I'm 31, almost 32 and as for childbearing age I don't have much time. I'd love to find a partner, but don't have much luck being a single mom. I'm too busy to get out and meet guys. Any suggestions?
I so understand where you are coming from. My daughter is 20 months and from about 6 months after she was born, I began to miss my baby bump. I see women in the street who are heavily pregnant and get very envious and teary eyed knowing I am not pregnant. You see my husband doesn't want another child but I think I do. I am not 100% sure yet so I wouldn't have one in case it was just pregnancy I craved and wasn't ready for a second child. My first child has been such a good and and baby so do I want to tempt fate. Moreover, I don't mean to offend anyone but I only want a girl so since you can't choose the sex of your baby, it would be unfair to try for another and face disappointment. Besides you need 2 to make a baby and my husband will just not consider a second. I want my baby bump back!!!!!1
I can relate ! I do miss the baby belly but im more excited having my baby here and being able to hold and kiss and hug her.....
I dnt miss being uncomfty because of my pregnancy, bt I do miss being pregnant. Now i touch my stomach and there is flab, before it was a big round ball, with a baby inside. Even tho my baby is 2 1/2 months old I miss being pregnant. :)
yes i really missed it when i first had her and i was still in the hospital , i went to the bathroom and was like wow this is the first time in nine months im by my self :( ha ha and the other day at work i started rubbing my belly just out of old habits lol i didnt think i would miss it but i do too
I had morning sickness my entire pregnancy so I was surprised how sad I was that I wasnt pregnant anymore and how much I missed it
my babe is almost 3 months old and I miss my belly too. I miss him kicking me and just looking down at it. But I'm so grateful my little boy is here too!
I had my baby girl last week and I miss my belly already, I am so happy she's finally here though :) anyone else?
My daughter is 3 weeks old and I really miss being pregnant she was 2 weeks late and those last 2 weeks were misrable but the other 40 weeks were amazing, i've never felt better! But she is so sweet and perfect and I was ready for her to be here, although i got alot more sleep when she was still in there. LOL
At first I felt so relieved of the pain and huge belly. But now that she runs around everywhere and I can't keep track of her, I wish I still had her in my belly. At least it was a safe and comfy place :P
I loved my pregnancy. I would be thrilled to have another but hubby doesn't even want to think of it with these economic times. Somehow there are soo many pregnant women around me, makes me in a way so sick that I can't enjoy it either! I am soo nostalgic. Pregancy seems to last forever, but now that you look back at it, was only a moment of time.
i was just like you after i gave birth to my first child. i felt so empty. i was very emotional (cried allllllll the time...) for all kinds of reason... and often for no reason at all. i felt like i was no longer able to protect her like i was when she was inside of me. now she was out in the world, filled with germs and people. it took me about 4-5 months to get over that.. now im doing better. im still a germ freak, but not as bad. it was so bad.. that no one was allowed to hold her. except my husband. im glad im better now, because i dont think it as healthy for me. as for my belly .. its full again. we are expecting our second baby in july.
I really badly miss being pregnant!!!! My daugter is 8months and i am trying to get pregnant all ready. dont get me wrong i love my daughter and love her being out ijust love the closeness of being pregnant and knowing that she is safe all the time! i also just love children and babies!! and i dont know how many chidren i want .....maybe ill just keep going lol!!
Hi everyone--Just wanted to let you know that I soooo enjoyed reading your discussion I choose it as the discussion to spotlight in my very first installment in a new feature here on ParentsConnect highlighting fabulous conversations from our Community. Check it out here!
No I don't. I loved being pregnant (the fact that I had life growing inside of me) but I hated most everything about the pregnancy. I was sooo uncomfortable in my own body.
Awww... even four years out from being pregnant I can totally relate. I have never felt more beautiful than when I was pregnant, and part of me wonders why I waited so long... i could've maybe avoided all the body-image issues of my 20s! ;-)
Still, I marvel at my daughter. I look at her sometimes and say to myself, "Wow, I can't believe I made her. I grew her in my belly and she came into this world, and she is the most amazing, beautiful creature ever." So I'm here to tell you that actual motherhood just gets better and better every day, month, year. But enjoy your babies every moment while they're so young! (and before they can start talking back! Ha!)
lol!! I also look at my daughter and think that too. Life is amazing and pregnancy is really amazing, even the saggy belly and stretchmarks dont put me off!! (I only got stretchmarks when i was late, day after my due date to be precise lol) When i first had her i really missed being pregnant, even though it was annoying at time. I would see pregnant women and envy them!! I missed feeling her moving and the excitement of everything. Shes 9months now and i was sooo over it until i found out i was preg again 2 weeks ago. So i get to go through it all again and im loving every minute already!!
