Haha yeah this is biggest my boobs have ever been and the hubandit is a very happy boy.

So a little off topic but I just checked my voicemail and discovered a message from the Ellen Degeneres show regarding an internet contest that I won. I called back and got their voicemail so I left a message. I did enter a contest on her website today... I wonder what I won!

LOL, my sad boobie sacks are starting to fill up again, too

Trekkingirl, I'm so sorry about your crappy day. I do not have panic disorder, but I've had 3 panic attacks in my life. One was when I started the birth control pill, and the other two were when during two of my pregnancies. I definitely think hormones can play a part. I hope things go better for you.

I was on the go all day today, even though I didn't feel great. It all hit me when we got home this afternoon though and I ended up nauseate and with a pounding heachache. I laid down for a couple of hours, and fortunately the kids let me be, but I still have a residual headache. I wish I wasn't so out of energy because there is SO. MUCH. LAUNDRY. to do

I had all sorts of crazy dreams last night, including having a little girl (born earlier than expected) and that I'd forgotten to take my supplements and order dom to assist with my nursing problems...

DH also says I'm acting much more "lovey" towards him lately, he asked if I was happier now that I was finally pregnant (we've not been trying, I've been WAITING to TTC since 2008). I don't feel like it's anything conscious, I'm still shocked that I'm actually pregnant.

I finally threw my test away, I'd been enjoying looking at it everytime I went into our bathroom and seeing again that there really are two lines on it.

LOVE Ellen! And she gives away great stuff, too! Excited to hear what it is....

Indigestion that wakes me up is getting a little old. So is waking up to pee. So is waking up to eat. And it's only begun.

I get to squeeze my bloat into a swimming suit today and be around people who I havent told about my pregnancy yet. I'll let them think I'm getting fat, I guess.

I must need calcium. Went grocery shopping yesterday and came home with: 4 kinds of cheese, cottage cheese, soymilk, yogurt, and ice cream. Dairy taketh over my fridge!

So it turns out I didn't win yesterdays contest, but the one I entered on the 8th. So far all I know is that I won a Kodak digital camera. I sent in the paperwork today so hopefully it will be arriving soon!

Trekkingirl: I just want to give you hugs. I am diagnosed with panic disorder. I've had it since 10/12/99. I really hope that these attacks are just being triggered by pregnancy. I can't lie, panic disorder is NOT fun. I do know the fear, and you are not alone If they get worse,or become more frequent, I would tell your doc. There are some things *medically* that can trigger panic ex: thyroid problems.
That's really interesting that you bring up thyroid. I have hypothyroid and I have been on 100mcg of the replacement drug. I had my tsh checked yesterday and I am way above normal range. So I guess I need a higher dose. I have never heard of panic attacks being because of thyroid issues. I just knew it had to be hormonal. Thanks for telling me that, I feel much better knowing my meds are about to be adjusted.

This has been me pretty much every single day for the last two weeks. Usually hits mid afternoon. Dh has been supportive in the housework dept but he is completely unsympathetic about me not being able to even sit up. I have been laying on the couch daily.

Thanks everyone for all the encouragement! I haven't had another panic attack since my first but I have found myself in tears a few times.

So tired. Trying to strip the sheets on my bed, because after I took my youngest out of the tub he peed on our bed. Ugh, so I stripped the sheets and then found him eating stickers from a sticker book while the older brother egged him on. I need to rest now.... so I can get ready to go to bed...

I cannot believe how much of a lazy sack of bones I've become...i feel weak I'm so fatigued....

I'm exhausted, too, finnegansmom. The littlest thing wears me completely out and I feel like I just want to sink into the couch. Not so easy with two little ones running around! I've been going to bed slightly earlier and sleeping like a log all night.

Oh, and my house is a complete wreck, so if anyone wants to come by and clean it for me....

We have our midwife interview tomorrow! And it's my birthday! And the house is a mess! And I'm having friends over for dinner! And my parents are coming to town for the weekend! And I'm completely overwhelmed!

So, I think I'm going to go sleep.

I figure the midwife will understand, my friends love me for me, not my clean house. My parents can get to cleaning if they are offended!

Happy birthday!
post #56 of 82
It happened yesterday, I thought it was a fluke. When I couldn't button my pants again today, I sang taps and went and bought a target edition belly band and I'm soooooooo much happier. The band makes my belly prettier, too! Eeeeeee! But I bid farewell to SO many cute clothes. I need to get a box to put them in as I weed out my closet. Makes getting dressed harder if I have the old lovelies I cannot wear any longer hanging around to taunt me.

Getting a break from nausea today. Not completely, but it's way better today. I wonder if it's because I slept better last night. Anyone notice a correllation between the two?

And. Shortness of breath? I read in one of my pg books it's normal (I remember it later on in pregnancy when your lungs are physcially squished) but it doesn't make sense why now. Maybe blood making, organ/human buildling makes your heart pump harder? Anyone?

Hormones rushing through your system can have all sorts of annoying side effects.

DD is sick, and my mom is driving from Texas tomorrow to take her back there for 3 weeks. Lovely timing. I NEED to clean my bathroom before she gets here, and I work tonight. I'm just totally unmotivated.
post #58 of 82
Mrs Music- Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Tresa- I think the shortness of breath comes from increased blood volume coupled with increased mucus everywhere. Isn't it fantab? I love feeling fat and out of shape!

Ravin- I hope you get done what needs to be done and you put off what doesn't!

My birthday was good after about 1pm. Got my toes painted and interviewed our midwife. That went well. Then I made dinner for some friends. Had a nice time. Then just now, 6 hours after the fact, I threw up dinner. Gross. Gross. Gross. I threw up so hard I gave myself a nose bleed. NICE. And for some reason I'm awake now...oh, well. Sleep is for after the baby comes, right?

OMG I am so happy to hear other mamas talking about the shortness of breath thing. I just realized last night that prenatal yoga was feeling MUCH harder than it had the last few weeks. I kept getting all out of breath from just doing some up and down type moves and I kept thinking how out of shape I am, I probably have some medical condition or something...totally did not think I could have sortness of breath THIS early in pregnancy (since i'm not "fat" yet) but it looks like it is a normal symptom THANK GOODNESS! lol I seriously was thinking I needed to call my dr. and ask if they thought i was at risk for a heart attack or something! lol (FTR I'm tall and thin and young so i would hope not)

Just home from my first doctor's appt. Then went and got bloodwork done, with two kids in tow. : Oodles of fun.

She was very encouraging about me having a homebirth, and basically said she'd transfer care at any point, so if I don't get in I can stay on the wait list and maybe get in later if some of the moms who get in risk out of midwifery care. My fingers and my toes are crossed.

I'm also feeling out of breath - good to know that it's related, I thought I just hadn't been getting to the gym enough.
