Morningdove-I hope for the best outcome with your u/s findings! I've been thinking about you.
theelves-YES! I've been getting shortness of breath and more difficulty breathing just in the last week or so. I'm 20ish wks now to give you a frame of reference. I guess since I keep popping out in the middle, everything is getting all squished up together now, ugh.
frankies_mama-about the early bh's...sure, yeah, you can have them pretty much throughout your entire pg, or rather stretching ligament aches in the beginning and actual bh's later on. I've heard of mamas having them around 15 wks. I know with my 2nd, I had them more painfully and regularly than with my first and that went on for many weeks, and started much sooner in my pg. Keeping well hydrated is a great defense against them, as dehydration brings on contractions (found that out the hard way being 3rd trimester in the summer, ouchies!).
Nesting? HA! My lazy butt hasn't cleaned or prepped a thing. I do actually go thru multiple nesting episodes when I'm pg, though. For me right now, my big thing is the hormones. I swear, I don't know what it is but every pg at about the 5th month, I just get all giggly, and all the time. Everything is soooooo freaking funny. Stuff that would normally make me just crack a smile has me in tears full on belly laughing! I'm certainly not complaining, but it just cracks me up that I crack up over virtually nothing, tee hee hee.
Let's see, what else? Well, I am now at the time that I can have the level II u/s if I want it. I still don't know if I want it or not. I'm not finding out the sex but since I opted out of the quad screen, I kinda wanna see everything else, just for peace of mind. Other than that, things are going great, but I've noticed it takes a little longer to get off the couch than normal, and also, my balance is off a bit too (danged BIG ol belly!!)
