I Love That You Hate Pregnancy, Kitten, Who Else Does?

I like to read blogs from people who aren't cheery about pregnancy. It makes me feel less alone in the universe. I spend most of my time bitter that I'm not cherishing these last moments of having a small squirming kicking baby inside of me. Will I one day regret not loving these last few weeks more? I'm already thinking of this baby outgrowing the tiny tutu I just bought her and I weep. (Of course, there is little I don't weep at nowadays. Seriously, you should see me weep. I cry like a baby over most everything. Yesterday I cried because my laundry hamper was too full. The day before I read the title of a book that made another mom cry.) But, I don't think of not being pregnant sadly.

Anyway, if you want to read some stuff from other people who are pregnancy averse, I recommend Tired of Being Pregnant. You know this chick is hardcore. She registered a domain dedicated to her pregnancy dislike.

If you don't want another blog to follow, how about a single post talking about pregnancy's suckitude in a rather hilarious manner. It compares it to cat harnesses. To quote a tiny section of it:
Pregnancy is a red harness that the world is trying to convince me is the greatest thing I will ever experience, when in reality it's a soul crushing tether which represents 9 months worth of me being dragged through the grass with my limbs limp and my mouth pathetically hanging open in a daze of horror.
Sing it, sister.

Come back soon for my growing horror at the idea of a return C-section, my guilt over turning my nose up at blood thinning shots, and my absolute hatred of all people who have a pile of clean clothes and a crib ready prior to week thirty-seven.  Frankly, I think we're just going to let this baby sleep on the floor at this point.

Well, more than 3 years after my last HATED IT pregnancy, I can say from this side of things that you never do miss being pregnant or regret having hated it. :D You're just so happy that you'll never be pregnant again. As much as I hate having my cycle, each month I have a little happy moment when I realize that fact.

my turn saying "sing it sister!" when I was pregnant, we sold our condo, rented the smallest apt we could afford (very tiny, always piled up with boxes) and bought a fixer upper.

They are almost 2, their room is still a mismatch of stuff and i'm barely starting to sew stuff for them...because while pregnant all i could think of was puking, staying as straight as possible (bending down ever so slightly would make me puke), and let's not forget Tums! And not being able to breathe...

You know? I AM jealous of all those women that are able to do all those things during their non-eventful pregnancies. Wish I had had 5 minutes of that!

I have to admit, I envy the women who seem to love pregnancy. I feel like it must make these months so much more special rather than a period just to be gotten over.

I did forget this period where the baby is pressing on the stomach so much that throwing up becomes common again. Sigh. Such a sucky period of my life.
