Lots of chatter this month :)
Kara9080 and bmcneal: I don't have the maternity clothes problem as much (although I am a "modest mama" and that can be a challenge when it comes to maternity clothes), but I have an odd bra size that makes finding a good bra really hard... and when the "ladies" aren't happy, I'm miserable. I'm small framed and my chest is big and it's so frustrating trying to find a bra that's supportive and comfortable. Bravado makes that sports bra-type bra (the Original) and that's the best thing I have found. But who wants to wear a sports bra all the time
bambi: Sorry about the cyst and the heartburn! Did they say anything about your shoulder pain? When I was pg with my first I had this horrible, stabbing pain just below my right rib. It lasted from 16 weeks til I delivered and it was terrible. I haven't had the problem with any other pregnancies, thank goodness! I've had other aches and pains, but those are intermittent... that rib pain was constant!
missnikki: I hear ya on wanting to do all the fall stuff! I am just now starting to really feel better, and I can't wait to clean up the house and decorate a bit and bake all the yummy apple crisps and pumpkin breads. Fall is my favorite time of year. I hope you're able to convince your DD to keep homeschooling. I know everyone has their own thoughts on schooling, but I can understand the reasons for not wanting to send her off. My DH is a public school teacher at a high school and middle school and he tells me the stuff that goes on and it's so sad :( These kids have so much on their plate in every way. This is actually our first year of homeschooling. It's just kindergarten, so no real big deal.
d-limonene... I tried that with my last pregnancy and it worked pretty well. It weirded me out that it made me burp and it tasted like citrus...haha. Seeing as the heartburn has already started this time, I will probably be picking some up. I hate TUMS... they make me gag.
