You know what I hate, Everyone's enthusiasm for this child outshining mine. I feel left behind, forgotten except for the child within, which moves so much its uncomfortable. My body isn’t my own anymore my life isn’t my own I’m forced to listen to endless conversations about names for the baby and genders of the baby and how it’s not so bad from anyone who actually realizes I’m feeling left out. I find I really don't like being pregnant. I'll love the outcome but I don't like all the changes my body is going through and the baby moving and all that goes with pregnancy. When I used to think about being a mom, pregnancy was never in the picture. I guess I just figured the stork would bring the baby. haha right? I am tired of people fawning over my pregnancy probably because I'm not overly excited about it like they are, but now that I realize I don't like being pregnant it's not so bothersome. This isn't wrong for me to feel this way I'm just wondering if anyone out there feels the same way.

MyaLynn: Hon, I can't speak from personal experience, but I had a coworker who felt the same exact way. She was completely miserable through not 1, but 3 pregnancies. You may want to contact your doctor and see about mild depression...you are exhibiting some signs. The good news is that the co-worker absolutely loves her children and pregnancy was just a short period of discomfort. It's not very nice now, but once you have that darling in your arms you will feel like you're holding the world. Don't give up hope! Pregnancy isn't a comfortable thing; I don't think it was meant to be (DAMN EVE and that blasted apple...!!). Hang in there! What you are feeling is not "wrong"...it's pretty normal. Most people on this forum were trying so hard and had so many difficulties that they are very excited during the whole thing JUST because they've been given the chance. Not everyone feels that way. Everything will be fine!! We're here for you. :)

Thanks. I'm glad, I was hoping that I wasn't alone in the disliking pregnancy I glad there are forums to help give me advice I need when I need it.

While I can't really offer advice, I can say you are not alone! I feel the exact same way. I am due in three weeks, and cannot wait. My entire pregnancy I've just been waiting to not be pregnant. I hate being around other people because I hate the way they look at me, and talk to me. I don't know how far along you are, but hang in there, we'll get thru it. ....and oh the relief, when it's over!!!

You are definitely not alone! I am 33 weeks today and can't wait for my due date to get here. I have a really hard time, although I really envy them, understanding the women who LOVE being pregnant. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely feel connected and love this baby growing inside of me. I know motherhood will be the most amazing thing in the world, but I feel like my body has been temporarily taken over and, although I think every sencond of it is worth it, I can't wait to have my body back.

One more thing, I do feel very blessed to have gotten pregnant. That is what I keep reminding myself and it makes it easier....

You are sooo not alone. I have a 3 month old right now and throughout the whole pregnancy I HATED everything about it. except the ultrasounds those were kinda cool lol. But i felt like a blob, I couldnt do ne thing, and of course my biggest months were in the summer time. so I got to sit in the house watching everyone else have a life, bc for one i couldnt move and two it was so hot i kinda didnt wanna move. I felt like a beached whale, with outta control hormones. but to make you feel better, and i know youve heard this and it doesnt solve ur problems right now but when you see ur lil one.. it all goes away and you dont care about all those months.. take care

I KNOW EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL!! i thought i was a b___h for not wanting to blab about my baby 24/7. you know what i got for christmas?? baby clothes... that hurt a lot... i dont believe i can wear the baby clothes lol.. thats what the d__n baby shower is for right? i was feeling selfish especially when my mom yelled at me for feeling that way. but its good to see that someone else is miserable lol

I got baby stuff for x-mas too. The most irritating part, is that the tags even said they were to the baby, my name was no where. I wanted to say, well I guess I'll just wait till she can open them.

I just had a miscarraige last week and I'd give anything to be you - and to feel the discomfort of my healthy baby moving inside me. Just remember us who are not as lucky as you and try to appreciate all the discomforts as blessings in disguise.

MyaLynn- In some ways I feel what you feel, and sometimes I love being pregnant. I think for me the hardest thing is feeling so vulnerable, and, at times, helpless. I get sick of people telling me, "oh, you cant eat that", and "Dont try and do that....your pregnant"......I feel like saying, "no duh, is that why my belly has qadrupled in size??" I dont even mind the belly and the mild weight gain....b/c I know I can loose it pretty quickly after having the baby. I'm one of those people who enjoys strenuous workouts, but OF COURSE those have been put on hold for 9 months. I dont even like going to the gym while I'm pregnant (even just to walk on the treadmill) b/c of the way people will look at me like I'm mistreating the baby for working out. I think that kind of thing bothers me more than simply being pregnant. It helps to put things in perspective, and realize it's only 9 full months, and by now I'm sure you dont even have that much time to go. anyway, I wish you the best through the rest of your pregnancy.

Sorry about the fact that you had a miscarrigae but the women who are pregnant should be able to complain about it without you posting on here and trying to make them feel badly or giving them a guilt trip.

 

Lynn - January 3

My baby died and I would give anything to be pregnant and have these things to complain about. Be happy that you are able to bring a baby into this world that is healthy and happy. There are a lot of people who have suffered unfortunate circ_mstances, I think that once you are able to look at this baby and see how very precious he/she is then you will wish you would have tried to enjoy it more. I can understand being irritated with the constant discomfort but in the end, it will all be worth it. And for the person who complained about the Christmas gifts, be thankful that people love you and the child enough to think of you. You will be so thankful for thos clothes when you get to see your precious angel in them. I am not blasting any of you for complaining, just trying to give you a different perspective. Believe me, I was bitter about the loss of my son, but then again, there are some women who have lost their babies and also had to have their uterus removed as well. So I am thankful I can at least have another baby. Congratulations on your pregnancies and I wish you comfort for the duration.

I'm not trying to make anyone feel bad about complaining-I was just trying to give them another perspective. I feel the same as Lynn-I'm not judging anyone for venting their discomforts just trying to let them know that it could be worse so that hopefully they can maybe use that to help them get through their discomforts with being pregnant.

You were well within your rights to post an opinion and your thoughts. This is an open forum. Sorry for you loss. God bless.

 

** - January 3

Thank you....I really didn't mean what I said in a negative way.

 

Lynn - January 3

I too would like to make sure no one thinks I was being negative either. Believe me, I am not one to judge. Once again, I hope you all have healty babies and very safe deliveries. My hubby and I hope to try again in March or so. Bless you.
