No skyping in your classes? Sheesh, it's 2012! I bet the kids would get a kick out of that.
Round ligament pains. Is that that thing where it feels like you're being stabbed in the vagina with a dull spoon? If so, count me in.
Otherwise it seems like the morning sickness has faded. My appetite comes and goes, often in the same day. What's fun now is that I'm not necessarily hungry but apparently I need food. I almost fell over setting something down last night because it was 6 and I hadn't eaten dinner yet. If my body could clue me in before it gets to that point that would be nice.
I do notice I'm a bit more headachy lately, but that could be the weather since we've had a warm spell.
Finally I haven't been sleeping terribly well lately. Not waking up to pee or anything but just waking up for no apparent reason. Then come the dreams. Dreamt about shopping for maternity clothes last night followed by one this morning that was terribly upsetting even though it shouldn't have been and I can't remember it now but it was upsetting enough that I woke up from it.
Don't even get me started on the itching. My left boob seems to be the instigator and wouldn't you know it, there's no good, discreet way to scratch one's boob...especially at work...during meetings...with people with eyes.
