    I loved being pregnant :) As a matter of fact we are currently trying for number 4 :) we each have one from a previous relationship and one together. I love kids and I love being pregnant but we are done after this one :)

    I love both my kids dearly, yes it was cool to feel them kick & move, but if there was a choice, STORK!!! I hated being pregnant & couldn't wait to get the little invader out of my body.

    Don't feel too badly, I'm 100% with you.. but mine may be due to circumstance more than the pregnancy itself. Between being preg & hormonal, we lived with my inlaws (we were building our house), half way across the world from my friends/family, couldnt drive to get away from them, had to give up work (was breaking TBs) and my hubby was away at his sports 4 nights of the week. After she was born wasn't much easier, as you know.. I couldnt do anything right (i know they were just trying to help.. but argh).

    My second pregnancy wasn't nearly as bad since I didn't know about him til I was 6 months gone. I coped much much better with that one.

    I'd give my right arm to hate being pregnant, and to spend 9 months feeling rotten and throwing up all the time.

    I'd shoot the stork if it even looked at me right now.

    (Are any of you having crazy baby hormone cravings? I am and it is driving me MAD!!!)

    Ha, NO! I have one of each, my inlaws are forever at me to have more.. why upset the balance?? It would be a shock and a half to find out I was havin another, and not for a second do I wish for one

    Not to mention we couldn't afford another one if we wanted - the gov has cut child benefit twice and done away with the supplement since I've had kids.

    Yep, and we only have a two bedroom house... If I could even possibly conceive now and carry one we would have to add on. NOT HAPPENING!

    Arggg but the hormones and dreams are seriously messing with my head! Praying for menopause!

    I didn't mind being pregnant, it was the labor I didn't care for.
    My first pregnancy was the most normal. I was scheduled for an induction a week past my due date, went into labor while getting ready to leave for the hospital, making the induction unnecessary. Got my epidural and 9 hours later had me a baby, ALMOST pain free.

    My second pregnancy is where my hate for labor came in. My 2nd daughter was born on her due date. I woke up to the feeling that I had to go to the bathroom, 2 minutes later a full on contraction. I wasted no time, we left for the hospital 15 minutes later. Arrived at the hospital 10 centimeters dialated, no time for an epidural or even an IV. The doctor didn't make it in time so a nurse delivered my baby. 50 minutes from the time I woke up until I delivered.

    My third pregnancy was the same as the second, except this one came a week early. I think it was more like an hour and fifteen minutes from start to finish. They put me in a triage room first, instead of labor and delivery, because they didn't believe my husband when he said she has her babies fast, or me when I told them I was feeling a lot of pressure. They checked me, and low and behold, 10 centimeters. The worse part was being moved from one bed to another feeling like a baby was going to fall right out of you. Again, no time for an epidural or the doctor, delivered by nurse.

    I am not a fan of my speedy deliveries, although some say I have it easy. I like my epidural. I cried the first time because I didn't know what to expect, and the second time because I DID.

    I too wish the stork would fly my way.

    Had a miscarriage last year. Very deeply disappointed. Hoping I "accidentally" get pregnant again! The timing is terrible, I'm getting too old, but I don't care.
