I'm not have a lot of symptoms, besides moderately sore breasts. With my other two pregnancies, I was ridiculously tired and nauseous at the beginning. I'm going to credit that to my current ridiculously healthy diet.
If we have a boy, he will be Peter. I also love Raphael and Emmanuel, but my husband hates them so they're out. If it's a girl, we have no idea, the total opposite of my first pregnancy, when we had a girls name in 5 minutes, and never chose a boys name, which worked out since I had a girl.
My daughter was up about 5 times every night to nurse until she was 2.5. I nightweaned her by just refusing to nurse her in the middle of the night. It took maybe three nights with a bit of crying, but then she got it and started sleeping through the night. I also talked to her a lot before bed each night about how my nummies were sleeping until the sun was up again. I tried every other method I'd heard of, and this is what worked. Heaven!

I was doing basically the south beach diet with my husband, who wants to lose weight, before I found out I was pregnant, and I'm still doing it.

How horrible. I'm so sorry to hear this. When an acquaintance of mine died leaving a 2 year old and a 4 year old, her sister made quilts out of her clothes for them to sleep with. Maybe something like that would help?
