Re: If I ever get pregnant...

After DH and I got married, we tried for 6 years to get pregnant. We went through lots of tests and tears, and eventually, an IVF that ended up working. I often felt that once I got that positive test, I would never ever whine or moan about it. And then, when DD2 (I got pg while using protection when I was 17, DD1 was 13 when DD2 was born-secondary IF REALLY sucks) was a year old, DH and I amazingly got pg on our own.

I just have to say that, honestly, both pregnancies sucked. They were SO rough on my body. Thankfully nothing serious was actually really WRONG, but I could really feel just how hard it was on my body and how much it taxed my body. Even now, DD3 is 11 months old, I really feel the lasting effects, things that will likely be permanent.

DH and I are sort of whatever/TTC-ing, I guess, right now, for #4. And while I like the idea of having 4 kids, I also struggle with it, and if we get a positive test, I will probably be as freaked out as happy, and NOT looking forward to another pg, even with the prospect of additional IF things going on.

This. Completely.

I won't say I've been graceful this entire pregnancy, but it's hard to identify with women complaining about stretch marks when I'm thankful I'm big enough to get them.

Now that I'm almost to the finish line, my parents - and complete strangers - keep trying to commiserate with me about how miserable I must be. They ask me how I am. I just say, "Grateful."

(But if, when you're pregnant - because you WILL get there! - you burst into tears at some point because you're so hungry but afraid of throwing up one more time, don't be too hard on yourself. We all pray for babies. Nobody prays to be miserable. It just happens to be a side effect.)

Re: If I ever get pregnant...

Agreed.

And how about those people who keep taking meds, etc. that are not safe (Class C) because "whatever is good for the mother is good for the pregnancy"... Some people take that WAY too far. It kills me what those mamas could be doing to their LOs... I know they just don't believe there'll be any effect on the fetus, but really?!

:sigh:

Re: If I ever get pregnant...

Well I'm going to be the opposing side. We did IF treatments both times to get pregnant and spend buttloads of money on meds etc. While I was overjoyed to be pregnant and celebrated everything I still had moments of misery. More with this one than DD but still I am not sure we have a right to tell moms they can't whine a little. Isn't getting to whine and be waited on a part of being pregnant? It doesn't mean they aren't super happy about the baby. The gender thing I will never understand because I never had this super huge desire to have a specific gender but to each their own. It confuses me when people ask if I'm happy or upset to be having a boy or girl etc but I just blow them off. I have experienced excrutiating back and sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy....to the point that I cannot walk and am in tears. It doesn't change the fact that I love every moment of that pregnancy but I still needed someone to listen to me, otherwise I felt alone and the pain overwhelmed me. I guess I just don't believe it is fair to judge anyone's pregnancy and whether they are greatful for the baby or not because they whine about normal pregnancy complaints.

It's because for a lot of us it's not about the waiting or the money, it's about the death of our children, in my case 3 in the second trimester. It's hard for me to hear other women whine about something I would LOVE to be worried about. Instead I only worry about death. Vomitting, stretch marks, cravings, all that is trivial and meaningless to me and I wish like crazy I was in the position to worry about the trivial and meaningless.
