The irony is that I was ITCHING to get the baby out at the end of my pregnancy. When he moved I was in so much pain I’d grit my teeth. Initially I was relieved to be back in my old clothes. But yes, lately I really miss the feeling of being pregnant and having life stirring inside of me! I took a little video of my tummy rippling when LO is inside of it. I’ve watched it longingly a few times. You’re not alone!
This. I had the baby blues for about a week after DD was born, and most of it stemmed from missing being pregnant. Drinking juice always made her kick up a storm, so when I would have some, I would always get excited knowing I was about to feel her kick. I went to have a glass one night and the realization that I would never feel her kick inside me again hit me like a ton of bricks and I had a total meltdown. Whenever I would start to feel down like that, I'd cuddle with DD or nurse her if she needed it to help build that new bond. Now I feel the same way about nursing as I did about feeling her kick. I'm sure I'll be a wreck when we wean her, but I'll deal with that when the time comes.
