Let's Have Some Fun, Preggos and Moms!

1. What is your favorite memory/experience of being pregnant?

2. What is your LEAST favorite memory/experience of being pregnant?

3. What would you do differently if you got pregnant again now? If you're still pregnant, what would you do differently next time? I'm asking about testing, diets, exercise, etc. You can include your labor/delivery thoughts too.

1) feeling baby move so missing that now.

2) preterm labor. being in the hospital away from my family and on mag sulfate and all the other drugs was miserable.

3) i probably wouldn't paint 6 rooms, plus all the baseboards in my house. i think i went overboard and it probably had something to do with why i had preterm labor. i did too much. so yeah, i would probably just rest a lot. eta: i would get an epidural if i had time. lol

1. Hearing the heartbeat, Feeling the baby movements, "Stork" parking at the mall, and No periods

2. Least favorite would be WEIGHT gain for sure , Feeling bloated all the time, tired, moody, face bloat, lol.

3. I already have two kids (Ty is 6 and Gracie is 3 years old)....so no more for me. But if I ever had another baby I still would want a natural birth (as in no C-Section, BUT EPIDERAL for SURE). C-Sections are a major surgery and take longer to heal.....so no way would I want that. These days all women get c-sections anyway. Women were made to have babies naturally, but doctors seem to want to push C-sections more and more.

1. I did love feeling their movements, and the 2nd pregnancy I loved having my Ds back, and the no periods was a definite bonus . TBH I didn't really like being pregnant, now that I think about it, lol.

2. hip and back pain with my 2nd, gaining over 35lbs, being overly emotional, being awkward and clumsy, and stretch mark gain I also hated people telling me "I was barely showing" when I was showing a LOT. It took all of my will power not to tell them that I didn't start off looking like a cow unlike them... Oh yeah, and the all day sickness for the first 4 months with TJ. Also the fact that I could NOT eat veggies, no matter how much I wanted them... I'd puke. The only thing he liked me eating were hamburgers!! I was nearly vegetarian before my 2nd preg...

3. Hmm, I might have gone into the doctors a bit earlier in my last labor, so that I wouldn't have to have my VBAC with no pain meds... Although if I have another, I will probably pass on the epidural anyway...

1. Definatly feeling my babies move . How everyone treated me. The Boobs!

2. How sick I was with my son. 6 straight months of all day sickness!

3. I would probably try to exercise more and not be on my feet as much. I worked up until both of my kids were born. Standing sometimes for more than 8 hours a day! I was 3 days late with my daughter, and customers at work would ask me, "When are you due?" and I would tell them, "Oh 2 days ago!"


ETA: I love how this was my 1000 post! My favorite subject!

1. The movement, hands down. Going for checkups and getting to hear the heartbeat. The 3D ultrasound. Taking weekly pictures to see the difference in how much my belly had grown. Indulging in (almost) weekly back massages.

2. Nausea, back pain, heartburn, crappy skin...The gestational diabetes test - having to chug that orange drink was disgusting. It didn't taste bad but having to down it that quickly almost made me heave....Having strangers come up to me and rub my belly. WTF. I wasn't a lucky buddha or genie. I didn't mind much if people asked PRIOR to touching me but to just come up and do so? Ugh.

3. I'd try to enjoy being pregnant a little more. The situation surrounding my pregnancy wasn't ideal and it really put a damper on things the entire 9 months.

I'd also get an epidural!! I'm glad I was able to have baby naturally but I was so exhausted by the end of it that I really don't remember much of the labor and delivery!! I had my eyes closed probably 90% of the time just trying to focus and deal with the pain of each contraction. I think having the epi would have allowed me to relax and be a little more aware of my surroundings. I look back at pictures my doula took during L&D and think "this happened?"

I wished I exercised a little more - I realize now I could have but I was being so protective of baby since she was my first. I ate pretty well overall surprisingly and didn't have any weird cravings. My only indulgence was ice cream. As for testing, I was happy with what I had...dating scan, triple screen, gestational diabetes. I didn't have any problems having them done and I wouldn't in the future.

1. Yes, the movements of the babies. Still to this day when I get gas bubbles I automatically think of a baby. I love how much my hair grows too!
Also, having my last natural. One of the coolest experiences of my entire life!

2. Heartburn, 80 extra pounds, having the heel on my boot break in front of many people because of the extra pounds, the clothes-i hate maternity clothes with a passion, bad skin, gas, & no sleep.
The idiot doctor who made me worry & cry for 2 months saying my baby had problems with her brain.
I ended up leaving him & my new doc said there was really nothing to worry about, & there wasn't.
People telling me I was huge & looked like I was ready to "pop"

3. I would have had my oldest 2 natural. I can't believe I dulled my experience that happens only once

1. Definitely feeling the baby move and being the only one who really could. (kinda selfish, I know.) Also hearing the heartbeat.

2. Having severe morning sickness with my last one. I had to take zofran to keep any thing down. Gaining waaaay too much weight with my first. I still think if I wouldn't have gained so much I wouldn't have stretch marks because i didn't get any new ones with my last.

3. I would really like to experience giving birth without an epidural.

1. Baby Moving!!! Anticipating labor...(maybe that sounds weird, but I think it's so exciting!) No periods Boobs are nice, but is such a tease, because I do NOT want hubby to touch.

2. Being SO dang tired, not being able to run=weight gain, horrible skin, NO sex drive (poor hubby!) Not feeling like myself.

3. Not really sure...I have tried to eat ok, but definitely allow myself splurges, I have exercised as much as I'm comfortable with (not enough!), maybe try to wean myself off of caffeine a little more...even though dr says it's fine. I would have loved to have the experience of having a natural birth, although with Gracie is went so fast, that I felt like there was NO way I could have gotten through it without it. It actually made it so peaceful. With Weston, he was a c-section waiting to happen because of his continuing heartrate drop...with this one, I'm pretty sure it will have to include an epidural because of the previous c-section. Who knows. We'll see. Fingers crossed for a successful VBAC!

I reading all these replies. Keep 'em coming!! Here's my bit:

1. Baby movements FTW! I also loved the "idea" of being pregnant; knowing my body was carrying and nurturing a new life. I also enjoyed some special treatment pregnant women get (well-deserved for sure). Loved the stork parking too, lol. I actually loved having unmedicated deliveries; it wasn't really by choice, but in the end I got pretty lucky. Speediness definitely helped.

2. All-day sickness, exhaustion, not feeling like myself either (I hear ya Anne)...the inability to bend for months, lol.

3. I would have had home-births; I love the idea of a midwife coming to my house (provided she would make it on time with my speedy labors/deliveries), lol). That would have saved me six very rushed trips to the hospital...and not making there at all.

The only other thing I would do differently is try and control my mood swings; I was one moody preggo.

1. I am loving feeling him squirm and kick, I love the little extra attention from friends and family and am enjoying each Dr. visit because of having the opportunity to either see him or hear his heartbeat. So sweet. I'm also loving putting together the nursery and get other rooms in the house cleaned up and organized for his arrival.

2. I hated the first part of my pregnancy because I was sick 24/7 for the first 3.5 months. I honestly thought February was lightyears away because of how lousy I felt. I don't like not being able to go full force on workouts but I know that is only temporary and that I'm really only a few months away from getting back to the swing of things. I miss P90X!! I hate being stared at by perfect strangers when I go out, it makes me SUPER uncomfortable.

3. If I were to start over, I would try to incorporate more exercise (this I have been doing more of lately but I would have liked to have started much sooner). I'd probably make my husband do a lot more around the house

1. What is your favorite memory/experience of being pregnant? The baby moving and all the attention/gifts I got at my baby showers.

2. What is your LEAST favorite memory/experience of being pregnant? Bawling my friggin head off for a full week, bleeding nipples, 4th degree tear in my nether region, having to spray my ass with numbing spray so that I may have a kinder/gentler dump. Being left alone in my house with nothing but the T.V......oh hell you asked.

3. What would you do differently if you got pregnant again now? If you're still pregnant, what would you do differently next time? I'm asking about testing, diets, exercise, etc. You can include your labor/delivery thoughts too. This time I want natural birth if I can, this time I don't want a 8.5 lb baby but I know there isn't much I can do about that. I can't exercise because of my history of bleeding but I do walk alot.

1. I loved feeling like I always had somebody with me - I talked to him since I found out I was preggo, out loud, in the car, or the house. He slept a lot during the day in my belly, and I would worry he would not kick, and I would gently wisper to him "come on baby, move for mommy", and he would move, like he heard me. Every time. I still get goose bumps thinking about it.

2. Gaining 50 lbs and worrying I was no going to be back to my original weight and fit in my jeans (I know, shallow, but when you sank $1000s into jeans, you kind of want to wear them), ligament pains so sharp that I had to lecture bent over, freaking out the baby was going to have problems because of my thyrhoid defficiency - I had a high risk pregnancy, but the absolute worst?

Post partum depression of the worst kind for 2 years.

3. I would take the anti depressants for post partum (I didn't, because I feared it woul affect the milk supply and the baby), and I would ask for my parents' help sooner. Toughing it out and thinking I could do it by myself (with just my DH) was a really bad idea.

Pregnancy wise, I would not change anything I dd. Well, I would like to not have had to get antibiotics, Pitocin and the Epidural, but after 12 hrs of hard unmedicated labor with broken membranes, they really did not give me a choice. I was still 3 1/2 cm dilated after 12 hrs, and trust me, I know, as everybody but the gift shop personnel checked me and it HURT every time.

Shi, I envy your easy births - but I guess all that ultimately maters is that the baby was fine, and I was fine, right? I wanted to go all natural, but it was not in the cards for me...

Replying to bolded:
Not shallow at all. You are certainly not the only one who felt this way, and it's totally natural to want to go back to your original size. I hope no one feels badly if they don't though, because healthy mom and healthy baby is paramount.

Yep, the bottom line, no matter how we birth, is a healthy outcome for mom and baby.

...and
I'm sorry you suffered with PPD; most people don't realize that PPD can start months after delivery, and it can also LAST for years after delivery. I can't imagine how that must have been for you.

Another often overlooked reality in pregnancy is antepartum depression (depression WHILE pregnant). I had a touch of this with my fourth and sixth; most people want to see a happy, glowing mom-to-be, and while I was beyond thrilled to have each of my daughters, there were some dark moments. I couldn't control them either. Thankfully they were very short-lived, and I didn't carry on to PPD.

1. What is your favorite memory/experience of being pregnant?
Having the first "big" ultrasound. It was just the regular type but there are 2 pics I still love today - one is of Sophie's profile (it looked just like her when she was born!) and the other is the soles of her 2 tiny feet! I also liked being so warm and cozy - she was like a little internal heater!

2. What is your LEAST favorite memory/experience of being pregnant?
I had never really had heartburn before PG. I had it really bad - even water would give me heartburn. The Tums company LOVED me for 6 months!

3. What would you do differently if you got pregnant again now? If you're still pregnant, what would you do differently next time? I'm asking about testing, diets, exercise, etc. You can include your labor/delivery thoughts too.

Not PG now, but the next time around I would like to exercise, or at the least do some sort of yoga. The next time around we would also find out the sex, we didn't last time (which I'm glad we didn't) but the next time I would!

I've had some of this during this pregnancy. Also in short periods of time...but for the days that it lasts...it is HELL. Hard trying to be a good mom & a wife when you are feeling that bad. Thanks for making light of it, Shi. You're right...sometimes it feels like pregnancy is for other people...being happy-always happy about having a baby...and having healthy children, etc sometimes just isn't enough when those times come. Those are the days my husband just tells me to put my head down & just get through the day. If the kids watch tv all day to take the pressure off, then the kids watch tv. It could be worse. ANYWAYS, just thought I would share. It can be hard. Those hormones can be a bitch & when you are taken so out of your comfort zone of just being "YOU" it's easy to see why pregnancy is not just about a cute little baby bump and a baby.

1. Feeling the baby move, special treatment, no periods & looking forward to doctor appts.

2. I had really bad acne, which was weird for me because I never had that problem, being REALLY tired all the time, and also the gestational diabetes test ...I had to go back for the more lengthy 3 hour ordeal but it turned out I was fine.

3. I think if I could do anything different it would be to try to take more pics while I was preggo...I have some but would have liked to chronicle the experience more maybe by journaling too.

1. Feeling Mia move. Finding out she was girl at the ultrasound and crying because I secretly wanted a girl but really thought I was having a boy.

2. I was really uncomfortable at the end because I had polyhydramnios. I couldn't go more than 20 minutes without peeing because of the pressure on my bladder.

3. I would try to enjoy the experience more. My mom was so sick and ultimately died 8 days before Mia was born so I was so focused on that rightly so. I look forward to having a stress free pregnancy and enjoying special treatment!

^ I remember that happening, Liz. I can't even imagine.

I have had a short bout of depression here and there this time. I cried alot last night.....mainly frustration at my doctor and the pharmacy. I cried some today but I am feeling less cranky and depressed now. Or maybe I am just being whiney....sometimes I need a swift kick in the ass to realize how many wonderful people there are in this world. Majority are right here in this thread. Would someone like to ride the mood swing with me?

I experienced this too a little bit, didn't carry to PPD for me either. It was hard though because everyone expects you to be so excited ALL the time, and there were some days where I couldn't be.
On to the questions..

1. Feeling the baby move, no periods because mine are really awful, the boobs were a plus, but then they get taken away haha...I'm glad I'm not the only one who liked the special attention either.

2. Morning sickness, the doctor worrying me to death with ultrasounds to make sure she was growing okay. She was just fine at birth, just a little petite like mom and dad. (I'm 5'2", he's probably 5'6")

3. Maybe exercise more, take more pictures of me at the different stages.

1.
Loved my changing body during the first pregnancy. Everything was new and I felt sexy. That totally went away with pregnancy 2 and this pregnancy BUT I too LOVE feeling baby move!


2.
Morning sickness each time. Back aches with #2 and this pregnancy. And the extreme aching boobs this time. Oh yeah, not being able to see my legs when I shave them....barely being able to touch my toes to paint them and make them look presentable.

3.
Pregnant again now and I've changed the way I look at food. I see everything that I put in my body as a chance to have the baby try something different so he's not as picky of an eater as Mia is. I don't know if it is a myth but the girls tend to like the foods I ate more of while pregnant and nursing. And this time, we have no baby gear but I definitely don't plan on going overboard like we did with our first. Minimum until we need something after baby comes. No epidural this time, not by choice though. Swimming for exercise, less impact and still a great workout. Asking for more help from my hubs when he is around because I deserve more help!

I did not know you could have ante-partum depression.
That has to be awful, probably similar to post partum in the sense that everybody expects you to be happy and grateful to have a healthy baby or pregnancy (and you are!), but can't stop bawling your eyes out and think that your life is over.

Thank you for the hug Shi.
