My wife loved being pregnant. She had almost nothing bad during pregnancy and what minor things she did have she has the calmness to deal with easily. For her, carrying the growing fetus inside her was easy. Pushing out the baby at the end was also very easy. Literally 1.5 minutes of labor on the last. A bit longer on the previous ones.

The fact is, some women are built for babies. They have all the right physical and mental facilities. It really is not a hardship for them. They also form strong bonds with a partner who supports them. They’re the ones who used to survive back before modern medicine, back when child birth killed a large percentage of women. We have been working our way through an evolutionary bottleneck as we develop new genetics to better handle pregnancy upright and birthing of large headed babies. As a result there are a lot of women who are failures at it, the culls.

I laughed out loud reading this. Men are such wusses, even with a simple cold they are dying while we have the same cold and still run the house and wait on their asses!

Based on your article I'm full of shit and not a real woman due to the fact that I'm a woman who loved being pregnant.

I threw up 10-12 times a day for 23 weeks. I was for sure I had some mysterious alien disease. Also got to know my local ER nurses pretty well having been so many times for being dehydrated. And that’s why I only have 1 kid. Because pregnancy was the Bataan death march for me.

Really funny and I agree; men couldn’t handle it. I was only pregnant for 8 weeks before I miscarried, and the last 3 of those weeks were intolerable with many trips to the ER. My skin errupted into what could only be described as the elephant woman and my emotions were all over the place. My husband was great through it all though and took great care of me… I was lucky in that respect. The whole experience was traumatic enough for me to never get pregnant again, despite wanting a family. Instead we got a dog and I am quite happy mothering my Chihuahua “Buttercup”; all 7 lbs of her. She’s just the right size for snuggling and I didn’t have to deliver her!

Otherwise it was patronizing.

I am currently pregnant with my third child. And I am in the midst of my worst morning sickness yet. And holy heck is it hard. Holy FUCK is it hard. It is relentless and wearisome and not knowing WHEN it will end is completely depressing. So thank you. This made me cry. I am not a wimp. And this is my last baby, dammit.
