What do you miss most about pregnancy? It's really not a hard questions, but most moms would have sworn they would miss nothing while pregnant, but soon after the baby is born, many moms report missing being able to feel the baby move or the baby kicking, eating whatever they wanted or even their big belly. So what is it that you miss about pregnancy? Share Your Thoughts
- Im 5' nothin so being pregnant it seems that's over night I sprouted this huge belly and can no longer do anything normal. My upper back kills me, pressure on my organs makes everything uncomfortable and slow down, no sleep and dizziness.... All seemed to hit at once :( Its fascinating how there's a lil guy growing big and strong inside me, feeling him squirm around is glorious and beautiful :) so excited when he'll be out but I'll miss the fact that most of the time I could only feel him kick and squirm. He'd stop if anyone else put their hand on my belly :P lil stinker :P

What will I miss about my pregnancy?
- Oh man I couldn't agree more with all those of you that said they won't miss anything! Of course we all love the end result-the baby-but the pregnancy it's such a long and absolutely uncomfortable process!!! I ticked all the boxes of symptoms from any pregnancy websites-horrible heartburn, night sickness, my hormons went all crazy-I went through a stage where I hated everybody, took it out on my mother in law, hemorroids, etc, etc. I have few more days to go and I can't be any happier to get over this time, sorry, it was the worst time of my entire life!!!

- While its true what they say about the discomforts, I don't think anything is more special than knowing you are someone's reason for being alive. The pains and aches are so minor compared with the fact you literally made it possible for your little one to grow and become a little person. :) What I'll miss the most is how pregnancy changed my relationship... Pregnancy and impending parenthood added a whole new level of warmth and love to the mix, and there's only ever one first time for all of this! Next time around I'm sure we'll be excited, but nothing beats the wonder we felt now.

UM there is somethings
- you just can not miss about pregnancy and I cant wait till I can forget about them! The swelling feet and legs, the constant peeing, the shortness of breath, the seperation of the pubic bone, sore breast that my husband better not look at for another year it feels like, NOT being able to hold my other two babies, 3 3 hr glugose screenings in one pregnancy, getting stuck by somet type of needle every single dr visit, contractions.... I do beleive I could go on and on about the dislikes of pregnancy that you seem to forget about when that precious baby moves inside of you, or your children run up to give the baby in th belly a hug and a kiss before it is your own turn. Or when your husband runs your bath gets your dinner ready bathes and takes care of the kids just so you can look like a cow on the couch! and then it happens labor and a big sigh of relief when your PLO is in yours or your husbands arms! :) Just 10 weeks left with #3!!

what i think i will miss...
- I think I'll miss him moving and kicking me. Or how I know if I drink something really cold, really fast he gets hiccups. And like many other women have said... The special attention is nice! :) I'm ready to meet my son, but I'm not ready to share him!

- What I won't miss b being pregnant. I had a horrible pregnancy vomiting the whole time dehydrated in hospital. This is a nightmare. I am 8 mths . I have 8 wks left. I go in 1 wk early. I can't wait to sleep normal. And not be vomiting. To get my taste back, for food to taste good. Also indigestion horrible I'm on Zantac what a life saver! This is my 3rd pregnancy. I am getting my tubes tied I can't wait. But I am really excited to meet my little man. And hold him . That's what I'm really excited 4! I guess all the suffering we go through once our baby comes we forget about all of it! Good luck to all the mom's. As as we have a healthy baby it's all worth it :-)

Sleeping in my normal position.
- You ask what i miss most about pregnancy. You don't know how it feels like lying with sides only. i can't wait to sleep on my tommy. I do enjoy my sleep alot when i press my stomach on the bed. what about being reminded all the time that am pregnant? Oh! don't eat this, don't drink that.

Miss it so much!!!
- So glad to read the first response about literally crying over the keyboard as I too have been feelin so isolated thinking this was totally bizarre, to pine so much over a pregnancy whenever I have such a healthy handsome baby boy aged just 4 weeks. I can't stop. Crying over the fact that I no longer have my baby growing, kicking and hiccuping inside me! I don't understand why I find myself looking at my pregnancy photos rather than spending the time enjoying my baby. Is this normal? Why am I feelin like this?
- —Guest First time mum
- I'll miss watching my belly grow, the stomach massages, the special attention. :) but I won't miss the emotional & physical symptoms of it. Talk about torture! I hate it, it makes me feel terrible. :( but I can't wait to hold my baby girl,[ we're probably naming her Peyton ] in my arms. :)

I miss you Jake
- I have a perfectly happy healthy 3 week old baby boy and I'm crying all over my keyboard right now. How silly. I miss him always being with me. I miss feeling him move and knowing him in a way that no one else will ever know him. He was just mine. And that sounds so selfish...but pregnancy is the only time he is just yours, so take advantage of every single moment. I also had a very diificult pregnancy and complained and wanted him out. But now I would give anything to go through it all again. I miss how orange juice would make him squirm. I miss how he would get up with me in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep. I miss his hiccups. Of course its amazing having him around now, but there is something so special about pregnancy. I miss my baby.

Incredible thing pregnancy :D
- I'm 38 weeks now. Not sure how my next pregnancy will be, but this one has been wonderful. Everyone always says how much they can't wait to get baby out (and with an uncomfortable or horrible pregnancy I can understand that)... But as much as I can't wait to meet my son and see what he looks like and his personality... I'm really really treasuring my last few weeks with him and all the joys that come with pregnancy. I suppose I shall miss how special it makes me feel with my family, my husband and even strangers. There is a certain respect and protection that people feel for a pregnant woman. I will also muss his movements and the special inside-tummy bond that we share. I'm constantly in awe that my body can grow a little human being. I am also looking forward to the incredible accomplishment of giving birth and holding him in my arms :D

- I hate everything about being pregnant: not being able to pick things up or put my socks on, having gone up in weight 40%, indigestion after drinking a glass of water, backache, only being able to sleep on my left side, tiredness. I hate people asking me the same questions about whether I'm excited or how I'm feeling, I hate anyone touching me, even my poor husband and I hate not being able to eat what I like. I do love children, and this will be my second long awaited girl after 3 miscarriages but I just want her out of me. I was thinking about having 3 kids but I don't know if I can go through this again. Today is my due date.

- Is one word I can describe as to how I feel being pregnant. My usual gorgeous toned body and flat tummy looks horrendous pregnant and out of shape. I'm always in pain, no sleep, bruised ribs from baby kicking, nausea, fainting and that's from my first baby! Even though this one seems a bit easier, it is not any more enjoyable. Womens body's look strange and awful pregnant, definately not sexy. Thank God it's only for 9 months! Can't wait to have my sexy body back and of course, my baby out of there and in my arms.
