Congratulations, EartheMama! Vida is just perfect, and the labor/birth sounds positively dreamy. How moving, about the nurse.
AmandaHope, what a great ultrasound result. Hooray!
Coco, glad you have some more time with the babies on the inside. Sorry DP is back on the couch, though. A movie is a great idea.
Library, my breathing was pretty bad (I'm 5'4") for the second half of my pregnancy with my son, but I don't remember it getting worse over time. I mean, it got hard but then it just stayed about the same. Hopefully that holds true for you, too.
Wehrli, that sucks. I hope the chiro starts working.
AFM, I'm in the depths of "morning" sickness. And I'm SO tired all the time. Is it the second trimester, yet? It's almost comical at this point, but all I can keep down is junk food. I'm currently eating a Toblerone and drinking a Coke. Also on my desk is a mostly eaten bag of Fritos. I had Froot Loops for breakfast, and considered pouring Coke over them instead of soymilk. From the way the soymilk curdled and churned in my stomach, I guess I should have. Ugh. Just for comparison, before I got pregnant I was mostly vegan, heavy on the organics, and all around a goody-two-shoes. I'm listening to my aversions/cravings because I feel like my body knows something I don't. Or at least, I certainly hope so. The nausea is so much more variable this pregnancy than the last-- with my son I had a constant, moderate nausea all day/night for 6 weeks. No puking, but no relief. This time around I feel okay for whole minutes at a time (during which I panic that something must be going wrong), and then feel really, really, really bad. Oof. Also, I've only gained about a pound but NONE of my pants fit. I'm 7 weeks! I have an u/s on Tuesday, and if it goes well I'm going to have to tell my boss after that. There's no way I can hide this much longer. Aieeee!
