My blood pressure has been fine so far, and I've found that taking magnesium has got rid of my palpitations, which is nice!

How are you feeling? - Page 46post #902 of 17195/2/13 at 7:27pmpost #903 of 17195/2/13 at 7:27pmpost #904 of 17195/2/13 at 7:27pmpost #905 of 17195/2/13 at 7:27pmpost #906 of 17195/3/13 at 1:21ampost #907 of 17195/4/13 at 11:52pmMe too Nettle-- I keep forgetting to take mine! I also take cod liver oil, Vit. D, Magnesium and extra Vit. C. Plus a liquid probiotic that tastes a bit like vomit. Yuck. Stuff is doing a fantastic job on my guts but nothing for the swamp crotch. My DH was embarrassed at Target today when I bought incontinence panty liners. Yep. I told him it was his fault and I'm sick of all this wetness ruining my day, then the itching at night. It's getting old! I wish I could stop eating sugar/grain for a few weeks but it's all I want. Meat and veggies are super hard to stomach without some rice. I crave cereal and milk and there it is-- free from WIC! Oh yeah and gotta have fruit right now too!
You ladies have any clue what my issue might be? I'd love some input. I'm at a loss. I know I've asked about this before up thread. You all are surely sick of heading about it.
Also not feeling super connected this pregnancy still. Especially since I thought the baby was a boy. I wish I felt her move more! She was a stubborn little thing at the US and was NOT getting away from her corner of my uterus all curled up. Ha.post #908 of 17195/5/13 at 1:29amI'm getting a little discharge from my left nipple now. Pretty gross.
I'm not taking any vitamins at all, I asked the midwife, she said if I have a healthy diet I'll b fine. I'm not good with tablets at all so I'm glad I don't have to have them.
Tilly- my crotch is pretty gross too. It gets sweaty, sticky, I wee a little at inconvenient times and the gloopy discharge. Pregnancy just keeps getting more disgusting, they don't tell u about these bits lolpost #909 of 17195/5/13 at 5:20amQuote:
I'm not either feeling that connected or attached to this baby and wish I could feel the movements as that could help. But I guess it has everything to do with how happy and secure I'm feeling in my life in general. When I feel totally isolated and lonely and alienated, I hate the idea of having a foreign baby inside me that will further entrench me in the country I'm in, make it more complicated to ever leave..... and I feel like I'm having a panic attack and wish I weren't pregnant and could manipulate my life away from here and to a place that feels like home where I have access to my family, etc....
Then, when I'm basking in how in love I am with my fiance and what a great and priviledged life we lead (in the dream house we bought 6 months ago and how secure I feel in the relationship), I feel like the little critter inside of me is the luckiest thing in the world to be brought into the middle of such love, and into such a nice, secure, safe life. I see my tween and pre-tween children having a very ideal childhood here and know that the country is a great one for kids, and the near total lack of pollution, crime, poverty, and less-than-stellar free education/health care for all is..... a blessing for little ones to grow up enjoying (although maybe naive and a total misrepresentation of how the world works in general).
Anyway sorry to ramble. I can't wait to feel nearly constantly attached to the growing fetus and excited about having a new baby this autumn, rather than just occasionally.post #910 of 17195/5/13 at 9:46amI too don't feel connected to my girl yet. I kept saying when I know it's gender I'll feel more, then I said when I feel it move i'll feel really pregnant, but I'm just not getting the rush of love. It makes me worried I won't bond with her and won't b a good mum. I've always worried I'm not maternal or a natural mother, that's one of the reasons I left it so late to start having kids. I know my DB will b the best dad ever and I've warned him I'm gonna rely on him a lot, but he says he has great faith in me and believes I will b the best mummy, I'm praying he's right!post #911 of 17195/5/13 at 11:28am
I never feel bonded to the baby until I've actually had the baby. Some women are like that. I spend most of my pregnancies growling at my expanding stomach telling them that they had better be worth it. Until I have the baby, I'm just a ball of exhaustion caused by insomnia, with achy knees, sore back and constant headaches. But once I have the baby, it's all right. She's out, and I can put her down and sleep, with no more achy knees, headaches and insomnia. I developed a deep and abiding hatred for people who offered the advice of "Sleep now. You won't when the baby comes" because by that point 3 hours was a good night for me.post #912 of 17195/5/13 at 12:26pmpost #913 of 17195/5/13 at 12:46pmOh yeah same here. Except I was into my pregnancy with DD more. I felt a lot more movement too. We were like symbiotic beings. She is a lot more like me for sure. So it's strange to not feel the same this time. I just feel like crap and look fat! I know I'll ADORE her entirely the second I give birth but I just want to get to that part already! I should say I'm getting all nest-ie and making a rag quilt etc. so maybe it's just manifesting in a different way. I feel so much MELLOWER emotionally this time around and that is nice. DD was hard as a baby, super intense. Huge explosive temper. I keep telling DH I think this daughter is going to be mellow and easy going like he is.
Serena-- I thought I'd be crap at mothering. Ooooh was I wrong. I love it and wish I started earlier. Don't worry too much-- when you see your girl you'll be in hog heaven! I waited longer then most as well. 33 now and almost 30 when DD1 was born.post #914 of 17195/5/13 at 1:46pm
We are the same age. :) But I started a decade ago in my first marriage with my first batch of procreation. Huge hiatus, back to the single life when the kids' were with my ex, etc...... and now I'm settled down and at it again. I have always HATED being pregnant. Every time. But I'm the biggest kook, over the moon for her baby, once the baby arrives.post #915 of 17195/5/13 at 5:19pmpost #916 of 17195/5/13 at 5:25pm
Getting up when I've been lounging is already awkward and I limp for half a minute, while my skeleton re-finds it's alignment.
I just hate the way clothes fit, even maternity clothes, and just wanna wear this all the time at home: http://www.etsy.com/listing/103104369/obv-robe-custom-adult-sizes-organic?ref=usr_faveitems Who is with me? :)post #917 of 17195/5/13 at 7:32pmYep, that's exactly how I feel Serafina. I've resigned myself to maxi skirts and comfy bright maternity shirts. And pajama capris that aren't too tight around the drawstring. I can't really do yoga pants or I haven't found the right ones. They put lots of pressure on the lower part of my uterus and its super uncomfortable. That robe looks like heaven!post #918 of 17195/6/13 at 7:59ampost #919 of 17195/6/13 at 9:26ampost #920 of 17195/6/13 at 9:35am
