I hate being pregnant

There, I said it.

I am 28 weeks and 3 days and I hate being pregnant.

Usually I don't voice it out loud unless its close friends or family. Because it seems wrong to say it out loud. Like I am supposed to love it just because I am a woman.

I hated it the first time around, but it seems like I hate it even more this time. (maybe because its magnified from the first time)

Don't get me wrong, I do LOVE the end result (most the time) but I don't enjoy the 9 (OK 10) months that lead up to it!

I hate being out of breath all the time, feeling like I am HUGE, everything hurting especially my back, hips and feet, having to sit on the heating pad for hours, not being able to keep up with Jakah, Being on bed rest / pelvic rest, All the extra tests I have to have done, extra Dr appointments, the baby moving, not sleeping at night, pretty much EVERYTHING about it!

When Jensen moves around, its all night long (and all day really, he never stops...) and keeps me awake. And it makes me think of the scene from Alien when it pops out of her stomach... ugh! And both the boys seem to like rubbing on my hip bones. Gives me the heebie jeebies!

I hate maternity clothes! All the cute stuff is over priced, and I'm cheap. I don't want to spend a ton of money on clothes I am only going to wear 2 years of my life. So I suffer through with the few items I have bought, and a few things my friends and I have passed around.




Here we are with 80 days (probably less) to go..... and then I will never have to do it again!

So if I hear someone tell me how great it is to be pregnant and don't I just love it, I swear I am going to scream!

  1. I liked being pregnant in the beginning, but by the end I was FAT, UNCOMFORTABLE and MISERABLE. Here's to counting down 80 days!

  2. You are so right, in the beginning it was ok, maybe its because I'm nearing the end

  4. Aww that's a shame you don't enjoy it. I LOVED being pregnant, but I had super easy pregnancies (even with twins). I had no morning sickness, no weird cravings... nothing. I felt normal for the most part except with a baby moving around in my belly. The only problem I had was at the end of the pregnancy with my twins my hips and inner thighs hurt so bad I could hardly walk.. or breathe. But that was only like the last month. Anyway, I hope you get through this peacefully!!

  5. I actually loved it the first time around. I've been lucky to have very easy pregnancies. This time, it's a bit different though and most of the time I find that pregnancy is really getting in the way of my normal life! It's annoying. I'm really making and effort to try to enjoy it knowing that it's the last time. But if I'm being honest? This is not very much fun anymore.
    I totally get it.

  6. I think most of us can agree that the last couple of weeks is not the happiest time of pregnancy. I certainly felt like that "glow" had faded. I was soooo big (all belly) that my back, hips and thighs just ached all day long. I took way more warm baths than Dr's probably deem safe, but is was the only that helped.
    Oh, and the heartburn...Oh sweet mother of god...that alone made me say, "yep, 3 kids is good. done and done!" LOL
    hang in there!

  9. The worst thing I hate about pregnancy is how difficult it is to lose all the extra pounds after the baby is born.. it doesn't fall off as easily like most people and it's been already 18 months since baby #3 and I have YET to get back to ideal weight.

  10. I liked it until the end of my pregnancies. And then I was just uncomfortable and tired and wanting the baby out! Hang in there- you don't have too much longer left!

  11. I hated being pregnant the second time with my twins. In fact it cured me from wanting another baby! There is something about being so sick that you throw up 8-12 times a day that really makes you never want to do it again. That and measuring full term at 28 weeks did me in.

  12. I'm laughing, but only because I am RIGHT THERE WITH YOU.

    Pretty much literally. I'm also 28 weeks and change with pregnancy #2.

    I recently wrote about my least favorite part of it, and it's not the clothes. It's the hormones.

    At any rate, hi new blog friend! I'll be back. :)

  13. I do not miss the pain; hips and pelvis moving, and back pain. And you're right, the cute clothes are too expensive for stuff we wear for only a few months.

  14. Ugh don't remind me about the weight loss yet! I was within 10 lbs of pre-prego weight from Jakah when I got pregnant this time!

    And thanks for all the support and new blog friends! :)

  15. I'm 33.5 weeks now and I am DONE. DONE I say. The back pain. The stress incontinence. The crotch pain. Yup, crotch pain.

    I try not to complain though, because this baby is SO wanted. And I do love feeling him move.

    But boy, oh boy, pregnancy is LONG.

    Hang on in there!

  16. I know how you feel!

    That's why I was glad that my baby came 2 weeks earlier than expected!

    1. Jakah was 2 weeks early, and I am expecting this one to be 2 weeks early. If not I may cry and scream!

  17. I loved being pregnant with all 3 of my kids but I totally get it. Towards the end I just wanted them out already. I had terrible Braxton Hicks and back labor with all 3...no fun. Hang tough. You almost made it!!!

    1. Must be the end part... Or maybe I just really want a drink!

  18. Glad you put it out there. We are expected to be gushing about our kids from the moment we conceive them. Not liking something about any part of motherhood does not mean you don't love it. I don't like my husband snoring, doesn't mean I don't love him right?

    1. I am 28 weeks 3 days.. my first trimester sucked.. all I did was puke. With my second trimester came the pain ( EVERYWHERE) . HIPS, BACK, RIBS.. with my 3rd trimester the pain remained. Got worse but then I couldn't sleep or get comfortable and had heartburn like nothing u ever imagined. On top of that I felt like if I ate a tic- tac id explode. I constantly felt like someone stuck a air pump in my belly button.. just FULL. I got a lil less then 12 weeks to
      Go. N I can only pray it dont get worse. My boobs began leaking last week.. ugh.

  19. Tell me about it! Lol. I am currently 25 weeks 2 days with my fourth child, and I have been miserable since the begining. Morning sickness since I was 3 days along, sciatic nerve pain in both hips, heartburn/indigestion, severe bloating painful gas, backaches, pulled muscles in my abdomin, I pee on myself when I sneeze (keigels my left foot), hot flashes, getting 2 hrs of sleep every night because body pillows just aren't cutting it. To top it all off, I have gallstones as a result. I live off of anti-nausea meds and Tylenol, one poster mentioned crotch pain (yeah, I've got it), and it feels like my uterus is being shredded, which my ob reassures me it's just my round ligament stretching. Oh and I have what I've affectionately come to refer to as "swamp pit". (Excessive sweating).

    Don't get me wrong, I love my unborn son and I can't wait to meet him. It's just the process of getting him here is kicking my butt. I don't like complaining about it, either, since my cousin found out she can't have babies on her own.

    1. I can't believe you have done it 4 times!! Hopefully you will start feeling better soon. You are over half way done! :)

  20. Totally agree. I am 29 weeks with my first and absolutely can't wait till he is born.
    It has physically been the worst experience my body has had to endure-and I have not had morning sickness, I have only had everything else, sciatic pain, reflux, round ligament pain, constant headaches, dizziness, loss of balance ,torn intercostal from falling over walking home at 25 wks.
    I originally wanted to have two children but I can't imagine going thru this again . How people have more than one child absolutely amazes me!

    1. No you definitely aren't the only one! I heard the sickness ends soon for more people, hopefully it will end soon for you! And the babies are pretty cute :)

  23. I am on #3. 12 years after my first. I hate every moment and every day of this pregnancy and honestly not even looking forward to birth. Im to old for this crap and I just want a normal life back. Damn this sciatica, rolling out of bed, terrible appetite, tiredness, slowness, imbalance, tightness, horrible fitting clothes, breathlessness, constant bathroom runs, doctors appts., dumb comments and unwanted outreach to rub my belly. Every time someone says "you're such a cute pregnant" I just want to claw their eyes out and karate chop them in the throat. I hope and pray this 68 days is cut down by two to three weeks due to early labor but I doubt it, as both my boys were late. This one will likely be the same. I JUST potty trained my toddler and NEVER want to see a diaper again. Pregnancy is the pits and if we have to do it, it should last this long. Seven months tops. Good Luck and congrats to you all.

  27. I totally agree, I hate it too. First it was morning sickness and I get so light headed if I stand up for to long. No sleep in between the trips to the bathroom and the baby kicking. Pains everywhere and no clothes that fit. Cant wait for this to be over with, sorry about my complaining but I will never understand women who loves being pregnant. One baby and I'm getting my tubes tied along with the c section
