    Default Sad about pregnancy and birth...

    Lately I've been feeling a strong sense of grief that I'll never be pregnant again. Never again have that swollen belly full of baby. Never feel those little (and sometimes not so little) kicks. I'm sad I'll never get to experience labour again. I'm mourning that part of my life is over. The good. The bad. The gassy.

    As sad as I am to end that chapter, Im happy that I won't have another newborn. No more sleepless nights for me and I'm especially over that dreaded 6 wks establishing breastfeeding etc. Dh and I are done. No more babies for us.

    But the whole pregnancy/birth thing still kinda hurts. Anyone else feel crazy like me?

    I'm due in August with our third and last baby. I know for a fact I will feel the same way. The pregnancy and baby phase is such a huge chapter to close I will always miss it no matter how happy I am to move on to the next phases of our lives

    I thought i would be the same as we originally wanted 3 .. but I am currently pregnant with our DD, and i can safely say I am glad this is my last pregnancy. I am done with the morning sickness, the low immunity and constantly catching every cold about the place, the tiredness.... I honestly do not want to go through this again. We will have one of each once this jellybean is born, so that's enough for us as far as I am concerned

    I think id have a different attitude if i didn't have to work all through my pregnancies, but the reality is I will... And i don't enjoy that at all. If i could be at home with my children, and just be pregnant at home id have a different mindset i believe.

    I am only 24 and have just recently been told by DP that he is done with babies. I'm not ready to be done I'm so young I want more and I love having them so much. No idea wjat to do. How can our relationship work when we obviously have different ideas on children.

    Yes I feel this way every day. I miss all of it, the pregnancy, labour, birth, newborn cuddles, constant breastfeeds. All of it! I still have sleepless nights with my 13 month old, so haven't had a chance to miss that yet.. hahahha. But everything else I wish I could do over and over. I hate that I have to stop now. It doesn't feel right.

    I missed pregnancy for a while but didn't want the baby at the end. The feeling of wanting to be pregnant again passed. It's a big chapter to close in your life, I think it's normal to be a bit sad it's all over, even when you know you're done.
