Just Thinking

I was lying in bed this morning enjoying my baby moving around and it dawn on me that in 10 weeks I will not be feeling him moving around inside me anymore. He will be a little person all on his own and no longer a part of my body. I felt really sad cause I am gonna miss that. But I know I will be happy to have him in my life. I think I gonna lay beside him and make him kick my tummy. Oh I wanna cry now !!!!

I'm the opposite. I think I'm going to like my baby a lot more when she's on the outside and can't kick my ribs anymore. :) Don't be sad. Just think of how helpless and dependant on you he'll be. You'll be able to cuddle and kiss him and spend hours looking at his cute little face, deciding whether he looks more like mommy or daddy. I can't wait for that!

There are the other advantages too! Remember what it felt like to stand up without feeling like you're pulling a muscle? And being able to move at speed? Imagine being able to breath deeply and eat food without feeling like it's coming back up again. And sleep?...Oh well, yes, forget sleep. :)

I felt this way about 6 months after my daughter was born. It was sad b/c I loved having her w/ me, it was just that all of a sudden I missed being pregnant. I NEVER thought I would be that way. I guess at times you just feel a little nostalgic. Is this your first baby? This is my third and I did not feel that way w/ my second child.

It is my first Chisty. I think I gonna miis being pregnant too. I never taught about that Lissi. When you think of it I cant wait to try on all those cothes, put him in his crib, take him for walks in his stroller and for drives . OKK I wanna him KNOW !!!!!!!. Kidding I want the time to go by fast.

ok, the opposite is happening to me . I don't know if its b/c of the hormones or what but the closer I get the more desperate I get and sometimes I wish I wasn't pregnant! I cry with anger towards myself! I don't know if this has anything to do with postpartum depression but I feel like I am going to reject the baby when he is born! I posted in another thread about the baby furniture and how stressed I am about getting everything ready well I think it has something to do with it. I went to the store and I didn't feel the exitment I felt a few months ago! I just hope its hormones going crazy and that as soon as I see the baby I feel everything I haven't been feeling..

That's the spirit! :) Having said all this, I'll probably forget all the horrible pregnancy stuff after she's born and find myself pregnant again in a year, and wondering why I'm putting myself through it again. Lol!

Leslie, it's probably just your hormones going crazy. I get days like that too.

 

Karen - July 13

Leslie I felt like that somedays too. Especially when he is up on my ribs or I have heartburn and all the other exciting things of pregnancy. But that is just breifly. I think it is the hormones once you see him it will all change. Lissi are you going on any form of BC after. I plan to I have this reoccuring fear of going for my 6 week check up and being pregnant . I would just shoot myself. I know that bf and I will fight over that, he hates the concept of BC.

Birth control is a real problem for me now. I used to be on the pill, but for some reason I kept spotting and getting recurring yeast infections which stopped as soon as I came off it. I hate condoms, and lately I think I've become allergic to them. Someone mention the Nuva Ring, but I'm not really sure what that is. A coil is out of the question, because my SIL had it and she just bleeds all the time now. It's a real dilemma. The only thing I can think of is abstinence, but I'm pretty sure my hubby won't agree to that. :)

karen,you hit the spot on this one,i was just thinking about it last night.All this time i've been thinking i'll be happy when its all over with,i've had gallstones and they will be removed 2 weeks after i deliver,i won't be miserable no more,i can wear regular clothes again,i wont be hotflashing all the time,i'll be able to cuddle with my little one etc etc.But: i'm so used to feel him inside me,this are my last 4 weeks of my baby being my baby.once he is out i'll have to share.This is the ONLY time in our lives that he is truely MINE.Even though i feel miserable quite often,and can't stand women saying "i just looooved being pregnant" i really want to cherish these last weeks.I'm taking more pictures and videotaping how he kicks.I'must be hormonal right now..........................

After I had my son in Dec 2003, while I was in the hospital recovering , I was already ready to be pregnant again. I always feel real empty after delivery, for the obvious reasons. I'm really trying hard to cherish this pregnancy, just in case it's our last. The connection you have with the baby inside is absolutely amazing, but the one when the baby is on the outside is pretty darn special too. :o)
