Pregnancy articles & tips
Let Huggies give you a guiding hand through your 9 months of pregnancy with practical tools, articles, tips and advice to help you along your path to motherhood.
but when it is all over and you are holding your bubs it is all worth it. Watching them grow and discover new things makes it all the better and specially when they first smile at you - you know you could put up with it again.
Most of the time when bubs is moving they are having there awake periods and its a way of getting your body used to being awake at all hours of the night when they are born.
As much as everyone says rest when you can and once they are born have sleeps when they sleep - do it, as it helps so much and it also means a happy mum and happy baby.
But if you find it to much - talk to your midwife or talk to someone it does help and just keep counting down the days lol it will fly by and you will wonder why you were upset.
3 under 4 and loving it!
You're not strange at all. It is called HORMONES for a start. Not everyone is lucky enough to have the perfect pregnancy (whatever that is).
With DS I wasn't really enjoying it. MS took ages to fade away - and although I dodn't throw up once, the constant nausea was just so horrible.
I never got the mid trimester energy cr@p they talk about, and when I was about 6-7 wks to go I had had enough and wanted my baby out - mainly for the pregnancy to be over, but also to meet my son and start being a family.
And ya know what? He must've heard me cos he was born at 36 wks exactly!!
I fell pregnant accidentally this time around when DS was only 11 mths old!! I cried when I found out, I just was not ready to do it all over again. BUT!!! This pregnancy is totally opposite to last time.
MS ended at 11-12 wks. I have heaps more energy lately, and not quite as hormonal as last time.
I feel better physically, which helps me feel better emotionally.
When you meet your little baby, it will all be worth it I promise!!!! And fingers crossed your next pregnancy is more enjoyable for you.
Mum to Hayden (21mths) and Brodie (10wks)
thank you so much for making me feel normal
Nobody loves being pregnant 100% of the time, even people who supposedly "love" being pregnant will have off days. It's hard, emotional and stressful on your body! Just because it's natural, doesn't mean it's fun!
You're not alone babe... big hugs for you!
just wait.. it gets worse hehehe
but i do enjoy being pregnant at times, but like u get really sick of kicks and movement after awhile,
i think its just cause it does get uncomfy
Morning sickness passed when my DD was born...39weeks! AAARGGHHH!!! I hated it.
I used to complain about the backaches, the vomiting, how my life had changed and DH was the same, how I couldn't drink/eat anything because I threw it up all the time...
I think I made DH feel really guilty for getting me pregnant!
I also didn't get the big belly...and felt that people probably just thought I was fat, not pregnant.
But the day she was born...it was all worth it. I love my DD with all my heart. And yes my life has changed so much, and for the better...now I have this love I never knew existed.
But I don't think I want to be pregnant again...I don't think I want to go through all that again. People tell me I will forget it...it is still with me...I didn't enjoy anything about being pregnant, except for the scans, I loved seeing the scans and hearing her heartbeat. But will I do it again??? I don't know...it might take me a few years!
The birth was so much easier...(probably only because it was only a day of labour, not 39weeks!)
Meanwhile...I enjoy my DD every second...and yes I am glad I went through the pregnancy, just so i can hold her and see her smile and know I made her!
It just doesn't agree with me.
I'm even at the point where in a couple of weeks I'm thinking of encouraging this fella to get out early!
I'm just soooooo over it!
However please check with your doctor if you have pre-natal depression. Wnating to yell at the bump is different to being sick of the limitations and pains of pregnancy. Put your feet up and call your mum or mum substitute to come and take care of you for a day or two..
