moss, so sorry about your SIL. I have a "family history of neural tube defects" too...it gets to you, even though you know the chances of it being YOU are really low.
courtney, I hear ya on waiting on the 2nd tri. And I've only got one to manage... are the older 2 back to school now, or is that this week? I've been cherishing my afternoon naps with DD.
flavorful1, not snarky, don't worry. What about hard boiled eggs for protein? I eat the white and like half the yolk... And thanks for doing the chat thread, btw. If you get tired of it let us know and someone else will take over, I'm sure!
hazelbranch, I felt differently with DD too--I think its okay. We've got a long time to be pg and get acquainted with the new LOs, and it just can't ever be quite the same as with the first, right?
vivica, is it the whole egg or just the yolk that bothers you? The yolk bugs me too. The only other salty thing I can think of is some sort of jerky, although I'm not sure about the type they sell in the snack food aisle. My SIL makes her own, and we get that occasionally. Any chance you could try something like that? Or maybe nuts?
sunflwr, I feel your pain on the sleep apnea. DH had it awful for years, then he had his tonsils/adnoids/uvula removed, and it improved some. But yeah, some nights I feel like I spend the entire night telling him to roll over or stop snoring.
Mom2SJ, I'm craving junk too. I'm going to kill DH if he brings anymore "treats" home. Today he's working overnight so DD and I got one of those roaster chickens. Definitely hit the spot!
As for me, mostly just tired all morning and annoyed that I'm either starving or over full. I've tried eating small amounts through the day, but I end up just eating all day. Or I eat a decent sized meal and feel stuffed for 2 hours, then am starving again. Like tonight, I had 1/4 of an average-sized roasted chicken and a glass of water, and I feel way over stuffed. Grr. Hopefully this part ends soon.
