wk - i know how you feel. i had such extremely mild m/s this time around that only lasted about 4 weeks. tired of course, but my bbs don't hurt as bad as they did early on and my energy is getting better everyday. the only thing that makes me really believe i'm still pregnant is i keep growing. today i don't know if i can hide the pg belly from my in-laws like we'd planned. we are waiting to tell most people because of the m/c last april and we want to really hear the hb well before spilling the beans. hopefully next friday.
but i do understand your feeliings so well. my pg's with my girls was so much harder at the beginning...i was so sick and just really had a rough time. felt like it went on forever. the difference between now and then though i am realizing is i'm eating ALOT more red meat...more than i have in years actually. so i'm wondering if all that protein is helping because i know protein helps m/s...with both the girls i was a veggie before getting pg. and on pretty strict, no refined sugar, no meat, etc.. diet. but with my youngest dd i got really anemic and had a hard time throughout my pregnancy to be honest. i had no energy what-so-ever until about 36 weeks. it was hard. i only gained 15 pounds total and she was 8lbs. 8 oz at birth with a huge placenta. so in reality i lost body weight throughout that pregnancy. while i don't want to gain a ton of weight this time, i don't want to go that other route either. i loved how skinny i was the year following her birth, but it took alot to build up my energy again too. i can't do that this time with 2 very active girls and homeschooling, etc..
anyway, i'm getting long winded...i worry everyday to be honest. i think once we can hear the baby i'll feel alot better...
as far as maternity clothes go, i gave away everything. so i have to start from scratch..
i do have a bella band, so that is helping already alot! i wouldn't be able to wear anything except my wrap arounds. i need shirts though. i'm thinking i might take the plunge next week with that. we'll see though..
