    Default Do you enjoy pregnancy?

    Just wanting to know what others think. Keeping in mind apart from the fact that I can't wait to have Bubba and love feeling the movements & a gorgeous little being growing inside of me I find I really just don't enjoy it. I am a very active person though and love rodeo riding and campdrafting etc so not being able to do that makes me feel a little empty so maybe that's why. I feel guilty even thinking it but oh I can't wait for it to be over.

    I had moments like that, but mostly I enjoyed it. Well, after 14weeks I started enjoying it when the nausea went away. And before 30 weeks when the rib pain and gallstones played up... So yeah, I loved the second trimester lol!

    I loved my pregnancy. It was by far the happiest I have felt in my life. Probably the most tired but it really agreed with me.

    I enjoy parts of it, like feeling bub move. Overall not so much. I do love fact that I was able to carry and grow my kids and my angel babies.

    I don't have bad pregnancies, no bleeding, bad morning sicknesses, false labours etc. I like the little kicks and movements I feel, but other than that, no, I don't specially like it.

    I don't enjoy the fact that I can't run anymore, so I understand what you mean about missing out on a part of your life.

    I am really enjoying this pg because I know it will be my last. I'm savoring every moment! The first two - hated it

    I enjoyed the first 2 weeks I knew, then the all day sickness started. I can honestly say at 14 weeks pregnant.. I HATE pregnancy. No one should ever have to feel like this!

    So interesting to hear everyone else's side. It's terrible when you don't honestly enjoy it as it's clouded with that guilt but not enjoying my pregnancy has no effect of the love for my unborn child and the excitement of what's to come.

    I loved, loved, LOVED being pregnant. BUT I had straight forward pregnancies with no complications, so it was easy to enjoy them.

    this is my first and I'm 35 weeks I have loved it, it's just been an amazing experience but I've been lucky to have a really easy straight forward pregnancy. other than getting tired and now starting to miss going for rides and runs and seeing my feet it's been amazing.
