anyone else looking forward to pregnancy almost more than parenthood?


Hi ladies. well i am 24 and of course i am looking forward to motherhood and having a child, i always knew i wanted a family.

..but i am so in love with the idea of being pregnant and feeling my belly grow. even the birth part makes me excited. terrified too but i cant wait. i want to know what it feels likee to carry a child inside you. to care for yourself better than ever before knowing u have someone else relying on u. having the excitement of every day waking up with a baby bump!

i know the reality may be very different and mmore painful but does anyone else feel like this?? that the desire to be pregnant is stronger than the desire to actually be a parent??

i hope that doesnt sound silly!!

Lol I am the exact opposite, I long to have a child to hold but hate the idea of being pregnant and giving birth!!! Funny how it differs :-) x

I'm exactly the same, the idea of pregnancy fascinates me, it's so amazing. Having a lovely bump would be so nice, the parenting side scares me a bit though, especially when they get a bit older!

It doesn't sound silly at all hun, I know exactly how you feel, I felt exactly the same before I fell pregnant. I couldn't wait to look down and see a growing bump and to feel the baby move inside me. Thankfully I had an amazing pregnancy with almost no symptoms at all although I know some women aren't as lucky and suffer terribly.

Obviously as soon as Summer was born, being a mum massively outweighed the whole pregnancy thing!

Now I'm waiting to try for number 2 I must say I'm dying to pregnant again!

Not silly at all! I'm looking forward to all of it, but i think having a baby that you and OH made, holding him/her is hard to imagine for me, so maybe looking forward to pregnancy more, just because I think I know what that might be like, if that makes any sense

@lenny, looking forward to morning sickness! really! plugh! I hate being sick, but i suppose it wouldn't be like being sick normally, you'd be sick because of your growing bub, so at least a nice reason!
