    Or even worse: when they try to make you hold their babies. I hate that with a passion. I fear doing something wrong, and of course the baby will vomit or shit or start crying when in my hands... and if you don't, people look at you with that weird look... like if you're not fully human. You know, REAL humans are all overjoyed to put hands on bellies and hold babies!
    When I'll be showing, I hope people won't put their hands on my belly without asking... with exception of husband, of course, who's always allowed to touch me

    The whole " beach ball" belly thing also grosses the hell out of me.
    I've never had that. On the contrary... Having a big belly when you're pregnant is as natural as crying when you're sad. I was grossed out at some celebrities going on and on about that belly and feeling as if there's a parasite growing inside you, eating out your life and your beauty... You have created a human being!!! What if I'm fatter afterwards? What if I don't look like a young woman any more? Who cares about that??? I'm almost thirty and I don't have the desire to look as if I'm twenty. I'm going to be a mother and looking like a mother is part if it.

    Yesterday husband's sister, her husband and their little child came to visit. The sister never played with dolls, was a "boy" in anything and everything, probably as NT as I am or more, and she's a great mom. I'm a bit less scared now.

I love her more than life itself but I was not a good pregnant woman. I wanted to know if that was consistent.
    I remember that during my entire pregnancy I thought over and over 'I'm never doing this again...' I love my daughter very much, and people have said 'Oh... the bad parts of being pregnant, of the delivery, that stuff fades. Thats the way Mother Nature made women otherwise they'd never want to have another child!'

    I can say that 10 years later I'm as adamant as ever that I don't ever want to put my body through that again.

    I have wondered if perhaps my circumstances surrounding the pregnancy (Lots of external stress) resulted in me remembering things as being worse than they really were... but I doubt it.
    Embrace the possibilities.

    I don't know, for now I don't have that much problems with it. I eat less than normal and I hope that will go away because I want to stay healthy. I'm also way more emotional but that doesn't really hinder me. I'm not really scared of the delivery. My body will know what it has to do and there are doctors to help if needed.

    I hated pregnancy and I dislike children.

    I have four children. Mine are great--they are really cool, well-behaved, blah, blah, blah. Plus, I had a rather ugly childhood and that has a major impact on what kind of mother I try to be. I think they'd be a lot worse off if I had not had such unpleasant experiences to know how NOT to be.

    Pregnancy was horrible for me because it really emphasized my mind/body split. I wanted to understand and control this process but my body was, "leave me alone...I know what I'm doing." Plus I had health problems with each one...it was one of the most unpleasant experiences I've ever had.

    I had my first kid waaay too young, and I kinda got railroaded into it at 19. But as a male I was very intrigued by the process, both physical and psychological. And you know, i did what I could to be supportive. Caveat, I'm reconsidering my NT status.
