I am just getting into the 2nd trimester at the moment and I've been feeling slightly guilty about hating pregnancy. On one hand, I'm trying to be grateful for having the ability to get pregnant at all. Many of the women on my paternal side are unable to have children, and have gone through the ringer trying to conceive, adopt, etc. On the other hand, I absolutely hate the symptoms and the way I feel. If anyone has seen the comedy "What To Expect When You're Expecting", this is all me! I have the cramps and the bloating and the nausea and the acne and all the rest. I feel gross! There's no pregnancy glow, no innate love for pregnancy, and I'm ready for it all to be over. I was wondering if anyone else has gone through this and had any tips on overcoming these feelings?
