I have got the most lovely two week old little girl and am loving being a mummy.
I wondered if anyone else out there really missed being pregnant and feeling those kicks inside, as I am having serious withdrawal from it!!!
I know that at the moment, if I could be pregnant again, I would be, I realised just how much I loved being pregnant, although I moaned about it at the time, I really loved it!!
I think my hubby knows how I am feeling, maybe it is the hormones because I love being able to see my daughters face in the morning - even at 5am!!! She is only 2 weeks but she smiles and gurgles and I am totally in love with her!!!! But I miss being pregnant, Having been pregnant since last march - had a mmc then a three month break, then fell in sept with Alice - so have had a baby in my tummy for a long time it seems!!
Well, if anyone else feels the same I would love to know, or am I totally insane!!!????!!!!

no you're not insane! After i had Theo last july, obv i love him to bits, but i had a weird sense of loss for my pregnancy. I always put it down to the fact that Theo arved 4 weeks early, so i kind of hadnt finished being pregnant if you know what i mean! I think pregnancy is such a fantastic and special experience, and one that is completely indescribable to anyone who hasnt been pregnant. You have such a bond with your bump its almost hard to associate the new baby as being your bump. I found myself constantly patting and rubbing my tummy for months after id had theo! and def in the first few weeks id find myself lying there waiting to feel kicks.
i wouldnt worry about it - i tink its just a natural thing - you've carried a baby for 9 months that has been all yours and al of a sudden the baby is there but no bump. It will soon pass, and if you're anythig like me you'll end up trying for another quite soon. I had a mc in april then fell pg again staright away, so im happily looking forward to my whole pregnancy all over again.
I know exactly where you're coming from! My little girl was born last July and we celebrated her first birthday last Wednesday. I missed the thrill of the pregnancy from the moment i had her.
We've just found out that i'm pregnant again, positive tests on my DD's first birthday! Her special present was the gift of a little brother/sister!!!
As Karen says though, they really dont stay little for very long at all so enjoy your time together. Its precious.

Thank you girls
I do miss the fact that in some way, when she was still inside my tummy, she was all mine and I got to have that and did not have to share it with anyone - now I have to share her, ooo that sounds mean!!
I think as I did not get to have her naturally, I have not really come to terms with her birth - I was supposed to push her in to the world, but she could not get down and I did not dilate past 5cm. I will get over that, but I do miss her booting me in the ribs.
We are not even talking about number two at all, I am going to enjoy my daughter and spend all my time devoted to her
It was exactly the same for me, my son came 6 weeks early, completly unexpected. Two days after his arrival I started to really miss the pregnancy and feeling his kicks - I felt cheated out my precious/special time with him that no one else could share.
He's doing really well and his growing fast, he's now 16 weeks.
