Real Moms Sound Off: What I Won’t Miss about Pregnancy
Ahhh, pregnancy–a time in your life when you'll feel deep joy and physical pain simultaneously.
It's no secret I loved being pregnant. Even on my worst day, I enjoyed it, and now that my baby is here, I have to say there are times when I miss having that little baby in my belly.
But not always.
There are definitely things I won't miss about pregnancy–those minor annoyances that pile up over the course of nine months to leave a lasting memory. I won't miss sleeping on my side only, supported by five pillows under every part of my body. I won't miss going to the bathroom thirty times in a day (at least six of those happening in the middle of the night). I won't miss the heartburn, the constipation, and the inability to take anything for pain other than Tylenol (and now, apparently, not even that).

“I won't miss out-of-control hormones that made my face break out like a teenager! That was the worst; new pimples popping up every day! :(” — Alexis Nascimento
“I don't miss having only one comfortable sleeping position (and still not being able to sleep!).” — Greta Funk
“Oh you know, the drowning in my own body piece got a little old. I don't miss the carpal tunnel, either. I wasn't very good at pregnancy. I mean, I had twins, and that's a feat, surely, but pregnancy and I just didn't mesh well together. Barfing in my own eye especially sucked.” – Kallay Carr
“I won't miss people asking me if I was having twins because I carry all up front. Or belly rubs … I ain't Buddha.” — Alycia Neighbours
“I won't miss those middle-of-the-night leg cramps that come out of nowhere and rip you out of a dead sleep. Also? Peeing every 5-10 minutes (literally) when I was 8 months pregnant with the twins.” – Natalie Hoage
“Getting stuck on the couch or furniture in general. With my last baby, I seemed to not be able to get off of the couch without help … It was like it sucked me in or something.” — Jackie Park-Cross
“Not being able to take ibuprofen!!” – Deborah Gilboa
