There, I said it!

Don't get me wrong I will love my baby to bits but the nine months it takes to get baby are a total pain!

I'm only 23 weeks and I'm already sick of spd, weeing when i sneeze, sore leaky boobs, cronic heartburn, and walking like a fat duck!!!!

Ah, i feel better now I got that off my chestgrin

If its any consolation I hated it too. Every minute of it. You are not alone

memoo Fri 29-May-09 16:50:45

wish i could be one of those women who bloomed

Trikken Fri 29-May-09 17:20:43

I dont much like being pregnant but I figure its worth it in the end. Im def not a bloomer either, just go plae with sunken eyes where i dont drink enough.

memoo Fri 29-May-09 17:24:43

Its definately worth it but its just nice to moan a bit sometimes

Trikken Fri 29-May-09 17:29:20

yes I agree, gotta moan sometimes. Thats the good thing about Mn, I can get my moans out before he gets home!

Pregnancy is horrible!

TheCrackFox Fri 29-May-09 17:36:38

I hated pregnancy. I certainly was not blooming.

LovelyTinOfSpam Fri 29-May-09 17:41:59

I hate it. Am 35 weeks and it feels like 35 years.

Just want to get the baby out and get back to normal.

I'm knackered, short of breath, not looking after DD properly, miserable and despodent.

It's fairly common i think to feel it's a crappy time.

Tee2072 Fri 29-May-09 17:44:20

I'm right with you. I'm 36 weeks and so ready to get this baby out of me.

I am hating it so much, this may be my first and only child.

I cannot imagine doing this again.

bigchris Fri 29-May-09 17:45:48

oh I hated it too
I felt everyone was looking at me thinking what a heifer
I had a hideous pain under my ribs that never went away from about 20 weeks on for both dcs
I dreaded the birth
I never looked blooming
i got sick of everyone only talking to me about babies and pregnancies

ilovemydogandmrobama Fri 29-May-09 17:47:18

Hated being pregnant.

I just can't understand women who are surrogates! A baby makes up for being pregnant imho smile

LovelyTinOfSpam Fri 29-May-09 17:51:14

I have been suffering peri-natal depression and anxiety and have had to be referred to people who deal with loons at the hosital!

<trumps everyone with actual psychiatric problem>

<realises she must be feeling a bit better to take the piss out of herself grin)

I also hate being pregnant and currently 15 wks with DC3, def the last one just cause i couldn't cope with the pregnancies again. haven't had particularly bad ones, bit of spd and MS, but just hate the whole thing, feeling knackered, skin crap, tetchy etc etc. You are not alone!!!

abedelia Fri 29-May-09 19:57:04

Glad more people think it is totally vile. why can't I just grow it in a dish - I'm sure I'd remember to water it every day or whatever....

I am only 5+5 and have had enough (though is no3). I think that making pregnancy so unbearable is nature's way of getting you through the birth... by the end you will do anything (yep, even that) to have it over with.

BikeRunSki Fri 29-May-09 22:11:34

I hated it too. DC1 is nearly 9 months old. May well be DC1and only.

Concepta Fri 29-May-09 22:18:06

I hated being pregnant too. It was absolute torture. I had horrible nausea and sickness for most of my two pregnancies. I had pelvic pain - couldn't walk, sit, lie or stand for long periods of time. Had varcose veins - where no-one else I know ever had them! But the one good thing was that it all ended after 9 months and I have two beautiful daughters - it was worth it.

Hangingbellyofbabylon Fri 29-May-09 23:23:23

I'm 24 weeks and HATE it. Am too massive already, too hot. Waddle all the time. Chronic vile indigestion whatever I eat. And ante-natal depression that makes me mental. I obviously have a huge capacity to forget because if I remembered how bad it was I may not have gone for a 3rd child. However, I love this baby with all my heart and soul and just can't wait to hold her in my arms. Good thing is we can all come here and have a good old moan grin

Biglips Fri 29-May-09 23:30:00

my first pg i loved it as nnnnoooo problems but my 2nd pg i had a lot of probs and stress... glad my dd2 was out of me!

Kaylo Sat 30-May-09 21:03:33

I loved being pregnant and with my 2nd I had SPD too. I'd do it again in a heartbeat if only DH would let me...I miss being pregnant!

RFCMummy Sat 30-May-09 21:14:01

I am totally with you. I am 20wks with DC3 and am so fed up with it already!

Not really suffered with this one, have been very lucky but just so bored of the length of time it takes and the getting big and tired.

Am very lucky to be going on holiday next weekend to Spain but am selfishly dreading wearing a bikini with my bump!!!

Good luck to everyone expecting. It is so worth it when they arrive but I don't feel I could go through another and am seriously considering getting sterilised after this one, especially as it will be my 3rd cs

McSnail Sat 30-May-09 21:25:47

Yup. Hate it.

HeyThereGeorgieGirl Sun 31-May-09 17:46:14

Oh dear lord. I HATE it too. Can't think of anything I like about being pg. Am 34 weeks with DD3. Just can't blardy wait to go into labour. Feel as if I've got the gestational span of an elephant. Am entering the dreaded paranoia phase when I think everyone is pointing and laughing at my ma-hoo-sive bump and that DH will NEVER fancy me again. This is DEFINITELY the last one and DH is being bundled off for the snip double quick time after this one is pronounced hale and hearty.

dawntigga Sun 31-May-09 17:51:53

I had a 'great' pregnancy and loathed every second of it. From the reaction I got when telling people honestly how I felt about being pregnant a lot of people feel this way but don't like to say!


StealthPolarBear Sun 31-May-09 17:55:04

I'm really enjoying being pg this time, sorry. But I've been lucky, no actual vomiting, less tired, no problems so far (aaaaaaargh, why did I say that?)
Last time I was sick every day for months and really struggled, despite still being lucky enough to have a low risk relatively hassle free pg. Not sure how well I'd have coped having the last pg this time with a 2yo!
