I am having zero sex drive right now. Pretty sure we've done it once since we conceived. However, with my first pregnancy, I couldn't get enough sex during my 2nd trimester (and 3rd too, actually, but DH wasn't so into it), so I wonder if things will change in a few weeks.

Oh absolutely! I started crying over commercials and movies (and the Olympics!) before I even had the BFP! The other night I watched something on TV about a Russian orphanage and just started bawling. I told my husband we have to adopt every one of them!

Haven't had nausea really, but did throw up once. Ate too much dinner/too much dessert on our valentines day date :( Definitely feel hunger come on super quick and then faint and light-headed if I don't eat right away. Can only eat a little at a time though; feel full so easily...just to be hungry again an hour later, of course! Really, really tired. BIZARRE gas bubbles (I think??) after eating sometimes that seriously feel like a 7-month-baby kicking around...

I was just reading that exact thing in the NCSS for Toddlers last night, about taking them to a different room. I'm also going to try creating more of a gap between nursing and bedtime, like 1--20 minutes instead of 2 :) I really think my DS is waking HUNGRY though, so I am trying my hardest to get more calories in him during the day... We tried having my husband comfort him during his first night waking a few days ago -- it was a disaster. He was SO mad that it...

Me too! SO tired! Keeping up with my almost 15-month-old is suddenly the most exhausting thing I have ever done in my life! (And then there's the night wakings -- kill me now!). I'm 8+1 and am constantly tired. Went to bed at 7 a few nights ago!

Yes! This exactly! I reached the same conclusion you did: as much as I don't feel like I have the energy to nurse at night, I *really* don't feel like I have the energy to night wean right now. I've decided this is going to be a 2nd trimester project...

What an interesting idea for a thread! Probably a really healthy thing to discuss because it's so easy to do the opposite: get down on ourselves about the things we feel we do poorly :( The first thing that comes to mind for me personally is my willingness to tandem nurse my 14-month-old son when his brother or sister is born. Don't get me wrong -- I don't think there is anything at all wrong with NOT tandem nursing!!! -- but I feel that for MY particular child, it...
