My in-laws' response was, "Why now?????" I'm in law school and I think they're worried I'm going to drop out. It was a little disappointing since my family was nothing but happy. (or if they weren't they kept it to themselves!)
I'm a law student, so not working full time per se, but pretty much. I'm with Rachie about the naps. I've found that even a 20 minute nap helps me feel a lot better. Also, consistent snacking. My nausea kicks in a lot worse if i start to get hungry!
DD was born at 35 weeks (PPROM) and was in the NICU for a bit afterward. I'm newly pregnant and Googling everything (how did people obsess before the internet?). Did anyone out there have a full term baby after a PPROM preemie? I'm trying to manage my expectations.
Thanks for all the welcomes! My partner and I met in 2004 while we were living in NYC. We lived in Brooklyn for about 8 years. DP is a special ed teacher - she teaches science to Deaf and Hard of Hearing students. I was a school librarian until DD was born and then I was home with her. Now I'm in law school...just finished up my 1st year. My amazing DP is supporting us all through my schooling. My law school is Catholic, so they have really good policies about pregnant...

If she asks if you've been following the Brewer's Diet you could say, "I sure have been getting my veggies and protein!" :) But seriously, I do appreciate how it focuses on foods your great-grandma would recognize. But yeah, to each their own. Last time i was pregnant I kind of ate like a toddler 2-3 days of berries, then I'd be into cottage cheese, then fish for a while. Generally stayed...
I didn't have this with DD, so I was wondering if anyone else feels lower abdominal discomfort. It's not cramping...I just can't stand waistbands, a full bladder, or DD playfully bouncing on my body. Last night I couldn't sleep on my belly (that didn't happen until 2nd trimester last time!)
