a little frustrated....)
I'll admit it -- I didn't love every minute of being pregnant. I was worried that something would be wrong with the baby -- really worried -- and the constant concern made me anxious, stressed, and sometimes just less happy than I thought I'd be. I wouldn't say I was pregnant and miserable, but for some moms that's just the way it is. It's not all glowing skin and maternal bliss. With the symptoms, the hormones and emotions, the discomfort -- It's lousy.
No judgements, of course, 'cause we all know that every woman experiences pregnancy differently. I read an honest post in Pregnancy from a mom who said she didn't like to complain and she certainly loved the end result, but that she just really didn't like being pregnant. She kind of hates it and she wondered if others felt the same.
Responses were mixed. Some moms said they totally felt the same way, some said they genuinely loved being pregnant, and some reported that it was up and down for them -- loved it one day and hated it the next.
What about you? Do you ever hate being pregnant?
