Am i a bad mom?

Hey moms. I need to know if i am a horrible mother....i am 24 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I already love him with all my heart but i hate being pregnant....i was told that makes me a horrible mom and that it also means i hate my son. Ever sesne i found i was pregnant (at 3 weeks) i have felt miserable. Is it okay to hate being pregnant?

I’ve been pregnant twice. I’m allergic. With both pregnancies I lost 15 lbs in the first trimester, multiple trips to urgent care and the ER to have fluids pumped into my veins. My lips peeled cracked and bleed. I had migraines and vertigo. Throwing up when you have a migraine feels like someone is trying to squeezing your eyeball out of your head. I couldn’t move without throwing up. When all that was over I couldn’t breathe. I felt like I was having anxiety attacks because the baby was pressing against my lungs. My body hurt so bad. I couldn’t work more than a 4 hour shift at 4 months pregnant, when I was done, walking to my car was difficult and painful. Oh and I got gestational diabetes and was induced because of high blood pressure. So all that being said I did refer to my fetus as a parasite, demon spawn, Lucifer, satan and compared myself to Sigourney Weaver in alien. I wish I was one of those glowing pregnant women, I wasn’t. I was sick and pale and miserable. I’d go off on the person who said that.

Don’t even contemplate listening to that rubbish you were told! So many women hate being pregnant but that has nothing to do with how much love you have for your baby nor does it in any way resemble you being a bad Mum. Those are the type of people you definitely don’t need in your life. You will be a great mum so don’t doubt yourself. Pregnancy can be so hard! So many raging hormones, aches and pains, restless sleep & needing to pee every five minutes and everything else in between. Pregnancy is not forever, you will start to feel good again I promise! Just brush those comments off xx

Sure is normal I hated it. Being pregnant gets every thing out of whack. Your not a bad mom who ever told you that is horrible human.

I don’t think that makes you a bad mom, you just value your health ! I felt the same way the first couple of months of pregnancy. I understand now that I hate feeling sick but I am excited to be a mom.

You’re not a bad mom. Pregnancy is hard. It definitely has its moments that suck. If that makes someone a bad mom then crap I must have been one my second pregnancy 🤷🏻‍♀️
