Going to try for a quickie run-by post! :) I am going to bed in 10 minutes!!! :)
Spughy- Good luck at the u/s tomorrow. I am excited to hear all about it! :) psht! drink shmink! I only had to do that for DD2 and it was HORRIBLE! To top it all off, the u/s tech took her good old time and I was in there for over an hour!
Chapsie-- Happy to hear about your growth and what God has brought you through. I had two losses in a year (I actually lost the second baby on the due date of the first loss. I am amazed at what I have been able to get through and am really enjoying my pregnancy despite some of the symptoms, but I have been bleeding throughout (See below) and it is causing me to go a little loopy. How do you get through the crazy moments of doubt?
veganyogamamma- Sorry for the DH's ex issues. Sooo annoying. Also, I don't think she can legally have her mother take over custody, but I am no expert.
maydaymom- I have a snoogle. It is amazing! If you get any pregnancy pillow, look at that first. It comes with my highest recommendation.
chocolatechip- Happy Anniversary! Happy Anniversary! Happy Anniversary! HAAAAAPPY Anniversary! I am glad the date was so nice and that you felt so special on such a wonderful day! :)
Melany- I am sorry for that rotten night. I am hoping doggy ends up ok and doesn't have to deal with this on a recurring basis.
Sleep- Mine is pretty ok... IF I get to bed early enough. I wake up to pee at LEAST 4 times a night, but I try not to look at the clock and that helps me not lay awake counting how many hours until I wake up. ;)
Braxton Hicks- I've been feeling them for a while now. Prob since 12 weeks. I agree they feel a little weird, usually. But sometimes, I feel my uterus and realize that it is all hard and I am having one but not feeling it. I wish that's how labor would go for me! lol.
Libido- It's BAAAAACK! lol. 1st trimester was the pits, but now that I am in the second trimester....I am ready to go .... Problem is that DH's work is making things difficult. He was on second shift (2 pm- midnight) for a while and then went on thirds (8pm-8am) and then transitioned back to firsts which would have been great except that's when I decided to go to bed at 8 pm every night! lol.
AFM- Ten minutes is up, but I have to share. I had more bleeding this weekend, while I was visiting my sister in Detroit. Talk about a fright! After two uneventful full-term pregnancies with no bleeding or any problems, I have two miscarriages. And don't you know it, the pregnancy that comes after the losses has me bleeding all the time with no apparent cause besides, "These things sometimes happen, even in normal healthy pregnancies." The sight of blood sends me reeling every time. Luckily, I am feeling solid movement, now, so that is a little more reassuring than the bleeding in the first trimester. Anyway, the day following my bleeding was my scheduled 20 wk u/s...Good timing. I am happy to report a healthy and active baby measuring right on dates! And I am officially Team Green (for the first time EVER!) because I didn't cave! I had the strength (stubborness???) to stick to my guns and word about not finding out! :) Feels good for now, but I wonder how I will feel in a month or two!
Well! I hope you all have a great night! I may chat more about my trip to my sister's tomorrow, but it has been 15 minutes and I have to go. to. sleep!!! :D
