I think men don't get what we're feeling because they're really not going through what we are with our body pretty much being taken over LOL. I was mentioning a couple of my symptoms, etc. to DH and he apologized like it was his fault. He told me when I was worried about all the achiness and lack of nausea early on not to worry because there wasn't anything I could do about it anyhow. Not exactly reassuring, but more like 'practical'. Then, this week when I spoke to the office about getting an appointment the receptionist basically told me also not to worry, that everything will most likely be fine and that she didn't even consider me as advanced maternal age on their risk assessment. Of course, now I'm sick and have weird food aversions so lots of symptoms. I guess that's reassuring in a way, but I still have those round ligament pains and achiness...I hate that achy, feeling like I am going to get my period, sensation. I had that with 3/4 of my past pregnancies but still I play the mind games. I think most of that is actually digestive though, that's the weird thing. Everything is a wee bit messed up!
I'm the same as you here, so in comparison to most here we're both pretty 'newly pregnant'....try not to worry, btw. I think I was doing that myself a lot, especially as I'm older this time. There's nothing we can do, and most likely everything is fine so let's just enjoy being pregnant as much as we can with all the lousy symptoms LOL. I actually went on youtube and watched some births. I'm just thinking about how amazing it is to have a newborn and the thought that I'm going to have the chance again to go through that experience and all of the wonderful things that happen is just amazing to me.
