I am 3.5 weeks post partum and have been missing being pregnant the last couple days, which is crazy because I was miserable the whole last month! But now all the sudden I'm all nostalgic about it. I'm even missing having my huge belly. Probably because we are 90% sure we won't be having any more kids. Oh yeah and those stupid hormone changes.
I'll come to my senses soon, right? Because in my head I'm already planning the best time to try for a third.
I don't miss being pregnant, but I am sad about probably not having more kids. DH suggested that I could take our baby girl clothes to my friend who owns a kids resale shop. I am so not ready to be definitely sure there won't be another kid. Especially with all these awesome newborn snuggles.

Nope! Still pregnant here!
Although I keep thinking about how this will be the last time I'll feel the baby inside, etc. I'm sure I'm done after this. I was sicknthe first time and this time was 100% worse. I can't do that again. My body hates being pregnant until at least 30 weeks. Not cool.
I'm still relishing not being pregnant, but in general I've enjoyed my pregnancies so I'm sure a point will come when I forget all the bad parts and get nostalgic for it. I don't really feel like our family is "complete" yet, and all through this pregnancy it didn't feel like the last time and as if I will do it again. During labour though I definitely told DH there was no way I was subjecting myself to that again, and the memory of childbirth is still clear enough that I'm not anxious to repeat it! But if the past is any indication that will change in 6ish months.

I liked being pregnant but I am enjoying the things I can do now that i couldn't do while pregnant (alcohol, deli meat, tie my shoes, sleep on my stomach, etc). I miss how easy it was to take care of baby when she was on the inside though!

NOPE. Haha. I miss the idea of being being pregnant, kind of. Like aww baby bump, growing baby, baby kicks, special time, etc. But actual pregnancy was rough and so, so uncomfortable this time around. I'm a little sad that I couldn't enjoy it more, especially in my final days since this will be our last. But, just so much nope. Two times was plenty.
So I guess the general consensus is I am crazy, hahaha. I know it's crazy. I didn't enjoy the majority of being pregnant, the all day nausea lasted until 24 weeks. I had terrible constant pain in my middle back. I hated that I couldn't play with my other son how he wanted to and that I missed out on so much with him. I had bronchitis twice, and was so fatigued. And yet I find myself wishing I were pregnant again. I think a lot of it is due to the fact that I didn't take time to enjoy this pregnancy knowing that this is most likely the last time so I feel lots of regret.
Totally missing being pregnant. I loved every minute of it. I do love not having to worry about GD anymore or something going wrong and not being able to see him.
This!! I missed my butternut squash soup, sweet potatoes and going for ice cream with H. I don't miss the constant anxiety from bedrest, kick counts and worry about her wellbeing. She and I are both way better with her on the outside. That being said I miss the social network of spending my days on labour and delivery. Sounds weird but I made friends with many of the nurses/ PSW's etc it's hard now being out in the county with H working 12 hour shifts.
You're not alone. I just told DH last night I want another kid. I love being pregnant and having a large family, so I'm sure everyone thinks I'm crazy My kids inherited my good sleep and my chill temperament, otherwise I probably would have been done sooner. We'll see if I can get him on board hahah
So H asked tonight when he thought we would do our next transfer (Embryo transfer). He is loving this newborn cuddly stage. Sadly we have to wait a year or more due to the c-section but that's OK cause we can enjoy little man fully!! I am just glad he isn't saying one and done! 😂

Not particularly. I had a pretty easy pregnancy until the very end. The last few days were so horrible, though, that I am 99% sure I am one and done. The 1% is surprise. I have already talked to my doctor about birth control quite a bit.
