1. One more than the other, but since I was an unmedicated bipolar I can't say
how much my feelings were influenced by that. (Also, being on bed rest for both of my 3rd trimesters was also not my favorite.)

4. I was very happy, both times I was pregnant...
Even though there were certainly some discomforts!

I loved feeling my girls kick me, and move around inside me too...

5. All I can say is
thank goodness that style wasn't in fashion when I was pregnant.

:hi:

6. Which time?
My youngest was tough, my partner stole my business in November, my oldest (a breeze to carry, 2 days of hell to deliver) started running away from home in December, and new baby arrived 3 weeks early in January. (96-97)

7. I have a friend who is very happy.
She is 45 and is having a baby she thought she couldn't have.

She will be a great Mom.

This is a surprise baby, the Daddy is happy also.

8. I had fairly happy pregnancies. After the morning sickness faded, I felt great.

9. No physical complaints, but the timing was bad.
I sailed through pregnancy without morning sickness or anything really. Even went in to labor on my scheduled due date.

But I was young, in a marriage that wasn't working, we didn't have much money, there was stress and concern over the basics.

I became a much happier MOTHER after my daughter was born. I got rid of the husband, which was the best thing, figured out a way to have a life, raised her myself and she is a beautiful, productive member of society. So the overall result was a happy one. It just took me a while to get there.
