I think it is really weird how disconnected many of us are from our bodies and fertility. I hear women describing pregnancy with disgust like >>458069
with increasing frequency. Even my SO who wants to have kids is visibly disgusted by pregnant women and their bellies. I am not judging it because tbh I feel a bit like that myself. But why does it feel so unnatural to some of us? And will this change? I cannot imagine giving birth to a child if it freaks me out like that. And I doubt that the hormones taking care of this will kick in soon, I am almost 30 already.
I don't think the frequency of women who find it uncomfortable is increasing, I think it's just more acceptable to talk about now.
We've moved past the time when women had to give birth to "play their part", all while pretending it was a blissful experience and they loved every minute of it. Women talk about their tears and their hair loss and their hormones more now, so more people are aware of the worst aspects.
I know a lot of women who hated pregnancy and childbirth but for them the prospect of a child outweighed the disturbing nine months. I think that's all it is, you have to decide whether you want to endure it.
I have a very disturbing view about pregnancy, i find myself very grossed out and even kinda violent about it. Don't get me wrong, but i have a history of childhood trauma and both of my parents were very abusive, so i think that's why i hate seeing kids with their parents, you know, the happy ones (or pregnant women)
i know deep inside i'm just mad and jelly because when i see loving happy parents i remember my parents hated and abused me and i wish i had loving parents too
my boyfriend really wants a kid (and i'm sure he would be a very loving parent) but i already said there's no way in hell i would get pregnant and if i accidentaly got pregnant i would totally abort it, at first he was mad and disappointed but as time passed and he got to see my breakdowns he understood me
my grandma was bipolar and she mentally abused my mom and pretty much everyone around her, my mom is just like her and did the same to me, i too have problems and i know if i had a child i would make it miserable and would never be able to love
i can already see myself blaming it for ruining my life and my body and making it feel bad for being born, and even spanking it, just like my mom did to me
i may be crazy just like her but i will not make the same mistake she made bringing a life to this world just to treat it like shit
