Pregnancy - Granada,CO
I think I am a bad mom. I am pregnant with my second child, my frist was born 12 years ago, and looking forward to the new adition to my family. (23 weeks pregnant with a girl)
The problem is I don't like being pregnant. I feel tired all the time, bloted, constipated. The only thing I do like is feeling the baby move.
I wish it could be time to give birth, but I have a long way to go still. I don't enjoy this pregnancy at all!!!!
Im I the only one feeling this way?

Why something so joyous has to make you feel like your're starring in "Night of the Living Dead"! No way around it...you just have to handle it. My pregnancy was horrible...I even threw up in the grocery store line...couldn't eat anything...and was starving.

I'm sure this is pretty common. If you don't feel good, it's hard to be really positive about an experience.

I have been pregnant 4 times and some of them were great and others were terrible! You are totally normal, it is VERY hard to be pregnant sometimes and there is no need to feel guilty. Do whatever you can to feel good, and just take it day by day.

No, you aren't. The symptoms of pregnancy can and will make you feel crappy. I've had chronic kidney stones with this baby, I am due in August. Instead of having negative thoughts and telling myself how miserable I feel, though, I keep a positive attitude and keep telling myself "this will be so worth it in the end." An innocent child to love: who could ask for a better blessing from God? I've learned it's the attitude about something that makes all the difference in the world. I started telling myself every day how much I'm enjoying carrying life inside of me and over time I actually started enjoying being pregnant. Good luck and I wish you the best!

The only happy time while I was pregnant was when they were on their way out. I hated being pregnant and how it made me feel. It made me into a completely different person.
You are not the only one to feel this way
