Had a baby 4 weeks ago... Love My Blessing 1 child; Garfield, New Jersey 51 posts

I can't believe how fast time is going! It is driving me insane. I really miss being pregnant too. I have 3 pregnant friends waiting for their little ones to finally arrive. Them talking about it makes me miss the joys of pregnancy much more. I feel like this is totally unhealthy that I miss it this much. I feel like if I could...I would be popping out babies left and right lol



Has anyone else felt this way? Did it go away?

Try to remember the un-joys of pregnancy. :D



Nausea, vomiting, fatigue, gas, constipation, heartburn, stretchmarks, waddling, strange discharge, weight gain, moodiness, etc. Maybe that will help. But yes, I think it is normal to miss pregnancy.

I'm traumatized from my pregnancy so I don't feel that way at all. I feel scared as hell to ever be preg again.

Eh no, I remembered the pain, the nausea/puking, heartburn, having GD and not eating what I wanted, etc. I've never missed it.

I felt like that for the first 8 weeks or so, after that my LO became such a handful, I didn't even have time to dwell on the face that I missed being pregnant. He's 5.5 months old now, and I'd rather stick needles in my eyes than worry about being pregnant right now LOL

My son turns 1 the end of this month and I still feel this way. I had a wonderful pregnancy and a great birthing experience, so there is nothing I look back on and would dread if I had to go through it again.

That's how inwoul have felt had I not had a stupid rare complication that endangered DDs life :( I had a wonderful pregnancy besides that. I would have loved to have went another 5 weeks and not have had to have a csection :( I felt robbed.

Yeah, I felt that way too. It might be a bit of PP depression kicking in. If it starts knocking you down, call the doctor and get on something to help. The feelings WILL go away eventually.

I had her jan 25 at 35+4 weeks. The complication is called vasa previa. A natural labor, dilation, contractions, etc, would have killed her. And going beyond 36 weeks is very risky. I had to be hospitalized for a month and there was a lot of stuff that could have went wrong that luckily didn't because I had 2 placentas and they stretched covering my whole left side of my uterus. It also was low and almost required me To have an incision off to my right side instead of a bikini cut. But luckily it was just high enough to leave space for a bikini cut. Also with it being low it put me at risk for the placenta not detaching and resulting in a hysterectomy. So I had to dwell on all those feelings toward the end of my preg. It was an awful mind f**k. Then she had to go to the nicu for 3 days due to low blood sugar. I trudged up there every 2-3 hrs to feed her. I really set back my recovery :( It's been an emotional roller coaster to say the least.

We're doing good. I'm still having a few issues with my csection. And I think I have PTSD from it. I go to counseling tomorrow to see if it helps. She's doing good. She has a little spit up issues right now where she chokes. But otherwise good. She was a big preemie at 6 lbs 7 oz. Idk how mug she weighs now but she's getting chubs on her.
