Hope it's ok that I'm starting a new thread!

Is anyone else feeling this strange discomfort/tightening in lower ab? Maybe it's just gas, but I've been feeling it every evening for the past few days.

I do feel this also. I think that it's just the uterus getting in shape (again!). I think with each pregnancy there is more to be felt. I'm definetly growing more quickly this time. I can remember with my 1st I did not show until the 5th month. I could suck in my tummy and it would be a lot less but now is not the time to start that.

I've been walking a few times a week. Try to walk outside with the nicer weather. We have a 5k walk coming up that I'd like to finish in a reasonable time. We get to eat pancakes afterwards! Now is that a goal?

Even trying to get some relaxation yoga in at night before bed. Can't get too much done before I get called away with a child. Get one or two exercises in. Better than none.

I think that will a non winter pregnancy that physical exercise will be less trivial. Doing yard work, swimming at the town pool (when gets warmer) and playing with the kids outside should be really good for me.

Take care everyone!

hey mamas. i'm also feeling all sorts of shifting and tightening...in fact my back is killing me today. i picked up dd yesterday to put her in the tub and +++OWWWWW+++. last night i rested, put a hot water bottle on my back, and dh gave me a back massage with tiger balm. today, i felt better...so much so that i did some pre-gardening. now i'm a little sore again. more tiger balm and an early night.

WEANING???: i think dd may be on her way to weaning. she's had four nights in a row of not nursing. she's just cuddled back to sleep. 4 months ago we started the transition to the crib, but haven't tried to force anything on her. we let her come in, co-sleep nurse, whatever she needs. some nights she would sleep in her crib for less than an hour, then co-sleep and nurse all night long...other nights she would come in once or twice to nurse, then go back to the crib and wake up there in the morning happy as a clam. thursday, she nursed after she woke up from her nap. that was around 2pm or so. she didn't nurse again until 8 last night (that's 30 hours!). she nursed again at 5am, but hasn't since. i've always been a strong believer in child led weaning...but i think i secretly wanted to get to at least 2 years. anyway, i'm having mixed feelings: relief, grief, joy, sadness, etc.

I've been feeling a "tightening" also. I call it my new pocket. I feel like someone has sewn a little pocket to my lower abdomen. It feels kind of interesting. I hold it every once in a while, so does my dh. I'm very excited and can't wait to show! I'm 14 weeks now. I will probably show clearly in my 5th month like some of our other mamas on this forum.

BTW it's really hot here! I'm in South Florida and it already feels like summer. Not looking forward to be in swampy humid weather with a belly the size of a melon! I've really been hot lately. And I'm normally a person who's always cold in the A/C. I throw the covers off now in the middle of the night (and we have a fan too).

I just got back from a surprise spring break trip. Some friends of mine decided on the spur of the minute to whisk me off to the Grand Canyon. Sure was good thing the morning sickness was gone. We didn't make it to our goal, since it decided to snow. Getting snowed on in the Painted Desert inspired us to head south, and we went to Carlsbad Caverns. I must still be in pretty good shape, because I managed to walk down from the natural entrance to the Big Room and do the Big Room tour. It helped that we were going at a pace suitable for little legs (friends have a 2 1/2 yo, 5 yo, and 8 yo) and stopped frequently to rest on the way down!

It would have been completely fantastic had I not caught a cold from the kids. Luckily, the worst of it is over now.

How's everyone else doing?

Hi there all!!

Glad to hear how everyone is doing.

Shane: Can you change my edd to Oct 1 in the list. Thanx.

I haven't posted for a while so this may end up long. :

Well, I have a horrible cold. It really sucks!!! Lots of head and chest congestion. The stuff I'm coughing up is so gross! I took today off work with the hope that I'll get some rest and recover a little. I kept ds home with me. I can't bare to take him to daycare when I'm at home. Hopefully we'll get to do some stuff together. It's my dh's birthday today, so I'll try and get the energy to sit Nik down and let him colour a card for his daddy.

I think my m/s may actually be gone. I'm in shock!! With ds I had it for 5+ months. I'm still a week away from "3 months". If that is the case, I'll thank my lucky stars!!

I'm still tired beyond belief. I could probably sleep 14-15 hours a day with no problem, given the chance. I found out that my paternal grandmother had the same problem when she was pg with #2. My dad (the oldest) had to go to school (my grandfather taught school in a one room classroom) with my grandfather, even though he was only 3. My grandmother just needed to sleep all day. I don't have that luxery. I have to go to work everyday, and I really struggle through some days..... but this too shall pass. Dh is is surprisingly understanding this time round. That definately helps.

I haven't gained any weight..... but I've definatly gained inches around my belly. That is sort of worrying me, but hopefully I'll start to gain soon. With the m/s I just didn't feel like eating.... plus I've been too tired to eat. I'd rather sleep, given the time.

One of my good friends was due on Oct. 4. I was so excited because we were going to go through everything together. Sadly, she m/c'd last weekend. I am so devistated for her. Such sad news.

Healthy vibes to you all!! Take care.

My 'little' boy turns two today. Wow, it does not seem like it has been two whole years since I gave birth to him in my own home. It was a Saturday so it was a nice lazy day. We took him and the rest of us to Friendly's for lunch yesterday and then let him pick a toy at the local toy shop. We actually gave him a choice of two items. He picked sidewalk chalk, which his brother likes too

I have more energy now a days. I still rest some with the boys at nap time and when I'm home go to sleep with them at night. I have some orchestra library work to get done so no early bed time for me this week

I found a pair of size 16 pants that I had bought when I was pg with Theodore. They firt very nicely now. I even have to use the belt to keep them up comfortably. I have also discovered that there are a few moms in my son's school that are also pg and due around the same time as me. There is another mom in our class that is due three weeks after me. Kinda cool I think.

Hope all is well-

So nice to hear from everybody!

I am 13 weeks, and it's really hard to tell I'm pregnant. I was online looking at pictures of 16-week bellies that looked huge, but despite that and everything some of you are saying about your bellies growing, I cannot believe that will actually happen to me. At that same time, I'm incredibly impatient to see some evidence.

I am starting a hypno-birthing class soon -- can't wait.

Hypathia, I'll be 13 weeks tomorrow, and I know what you mean!!! I hardly feel pregnant anymore and it drives me nuts.
BTW, when are you supposed to start the hypnobirthing classes? Maybe i should get on that soon...

hey mamas. glad to hear most everyone is feeling less sick and tired (not all, i know...and my thoughts are with those of you still feeling icky and sleepy).

i'll be 13 weeks on friday and i feel like i have a huge belly already. in the morning, there isn't much to see...but i can feel it. by evening, i feel about 7 months pregnant, letting it all hang out. at night, i can no longer sleep on my belly.

mamaley and hypatia - you will get your bellies! every body is different. my hips are small and my rib cage is large...so my uterus tends to head for the least restrictive area right away.

Aw Shane, there's something very cool about that second birthday (although with ds we've only celebrated the first and second so far, so what do I know? ) Happy birthday to your boy and congrats to you.

This morning I go in for a midwife appointment. I get really excited about these. I'd better hear the heartbeat this time--shouldn't you be able to by 13 weeks? I need to hear or see something because I'm not feeling very much. I actually do have a small belly, and it sure has popped out earlier this time. Last time I was kind of full in my lower-ab for a while, but this time it looks a little pregnant. Does that make sense? I still dont need maternity clothes, just nothing too tight.

Mamaley,

I'm starting my hypnobirthing class next Thursday. It consists of 4 2-hour sessions. I probably wouldn't be starting the class so soon, but I'm moving at the end of May, and I don't know for sure if they have hypnobirthing in my new area.

What are you thinking of doing?

Hypathia,
I think I might start in May or June. I forgot to ask my midwife about it this morning--I'm horrible about writing down questions.

I got to hear the heartbeat today! And my midwife says I need to eat more! Woohoo! Haha.

Is anyone else tired with a messy house? My energy goes up and down, up and down...

Has anybody used cramp bark or false unicorn root? My doula recommended both to help relieve some crampiness I've had. I don't have an appointment with my midwife for a couple weeks, so any opinions would be great!!

Hi everyone

It is great to read that some people are starting to feel better.
I feel like I have been on a rollercoaster lately - I have an 18 month old son and I nursed him for the last time last Tuesday at 6:00 am. I am in mourning. After a prolonged nursing marathon I ended up with massive blisters on my nipples and then with a terrible case of mastitis. I made the VERY hard decision to stop nursing my son. He has actually coped very well - I think it is because I had been doing the "don't offer, don't refuse" plan for a couple of months so he wasn't quite as attached to nursing as he had been. That said, it has been a hard week. I miss nursing him.

I can't believe how big I am. I am now 16.5 weeks pregnant and have only gained a pound, but I am already in my maternity clothing!!!! I am as big as I was at 5 1/2 months last time!!!

Hugs to all,

Emma

Okay, I don't get it...I'm 11 weeks and I'm already in maternity clothes, is that normal? I'm 5'9" and weighed 130 before I got pregnant...I've gained 10 pounds already. I don't know if I'm going to keep growing at this rate or if I just a had a freakish spurt. People look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them I'm only 11 weeks. I haven't gained weight anywhere else, I just have a perfectly round pooch. Not that I mind looking pregnant so soon...I love my belly! Other than the tremendous belly growth, things are wonderful! I've been pretty pukey and tired all the time, but that's starting to get better... THANK GOD!! I was able to hear the heartbeat at 8 weeks...so amazing!!
I feel like I freak out over every little thing...it's so nice to have people to talk to about it!!

HELLO
Can you add me to the list to? I've been trying to keep up with all of you ladies...I didn't want to join in till I reached (that magic)12 week point....well....
I'm at 14 weeks, due about Sept. 21, and going to be atempting a VBAC at a hospital with my midwife there as my doula in a bigger city neighboring mine since I live in a unfriendly VBAC community!
My ms went away for 'bout 3 weeks while we were on vacation but now that we are back home it's back too...and I too have been so so tired! It's unbelieveable!!

It's nap time

Moonchild: I'm also due on September 21! Great! Good luck in your pregnancy and VBAC

To all the rest of the mamas: I'm glad most of you are feeling less tired (me too! I'm taking walks every night) and nauseous.

Best!

One thing I'm definitely not over is being tired. It doesn't seem to matter how much sleep I get at night, I get sleepy in the afternoon and sometimes fall asleep for hours without planning to. This throws me off and I wind up staying up too late. My sleep schedule is completely whacked and out of control.

Hi - it's so nice to hear everyone's updates.

Emma - I know it must be bitter-sweet to have weaned your son. to you and your ds.

JLav - don't know if it's normal, but I always gain loads of weight when I get pregnant (I'm 15-16 weeks or so, and I've gained 14 lbs already - same as my first two pregnancies).

Sounds like you were very slim before getting pregnant, so I think your weight gain is just your body's way of looking after both you and the baby!

Mamapenelope - I hear you about the pelvic stuff. I'm beginning to have all those horrible pelvic floor pains - I know I'll be sleeping with a pillow between my legs soon and taking about 5 minutes to get out of bed in the morning and another 5 minutes to start walking normally.

I have really easy pregnances except for that - and that is SO sore. But I guess if that's my main pregnancy complaint, that's pretty good. But all these nasty pregnancy symptoms seem to show up earlier with each pregnancy - I guess your body is used to those pregnancy hormones, and so responds more quickly to them...(sigh).

Congrats to the new 'joiners', and glad to hear that most people are feeling better (I still have the occasionally queasy moment, but in general am feeling much better as well).

Okay, well not really *newly* since I've known about my new pregnancy since January...but I'm new to this roll call and am currently 10w6d. I'm due on/around Oct. 17th. This will be baby #5 for us, though we have lots of spirit children due to numerous miscarriages.

At my 8 week appointment the OB sent me to u/s because of cramping and bleeding. We saw the HB and the little arms and legs. I could swear that was the best thing that I've ever seen. I have to have a very medicalized pregnancy because I'm diabetic and hypertensive and overweight. I, however, have *very* quick L&Ds so I will more than likely be having a homebirth with a *possible* transport to the hospital to check things out when we're done. My last baby was born after a 45 minute long contraction (no that contraction never ended...), my previous child was a labor of 1h23m and I never have to "push". My kids are long and skinny and just kinda slither out...

Probably more than you wanted to know... Well, you can find out more about me in my sig! Glad to be here!

Welcome to all you just joining us! It is so helpful and supportive to share the journey with other Mothering mums.

Carolyn thank you for sending the hugs - he hasn't asked to nurse in the past two days. I suppose it is a good thing, yet it makes me sad... Who knew weaning would be so emotional.

Ds and I were at Kindergym this morning. It is amazing. There are 12 mums and 12 tots in the class, and 7 of us are pregnant!!! We are all due within 6 weeks of each other!!! Is it me, or does it seem like everyone is pregnant?

Hugs to all

Emma

It does seem like a lot of ladies are pregnant. There are three out of thirteen ladies in my office pregnant...and in my family my cousin just gave birth, my SIL just gave birth, my other SIL is a month ahead of me, and two more cousins are due within two months of me. By Thanksgiving there will be 6 new babies in family!! There must be something in the water.

Re: stretching pain in pelvic symphysis area
That could also be from the round ligaments that holds the uterus to the pelvis. A warm compress often helps. If you get that when you are standing or walking, then pulling up the leg on the side of the pain toward your body also helps (as if walking up a tall step)

I just returned from a trip to Hong Kong for my sister's wedding. It was wonderful, but tiring. morning sickness is gone and when dd will get over her jet lag, maybe we'll be able to get some decent sleep.

Well, I have a horrible cold. It really sucks!!! Lots of head and chest congestion. The stuff I'm coughing up is so gross!
Same here! I've been feeling so badly since Sunday. I feel like it is hard to breathe, but it is because I have to breathe through my mouth which often makes me cough. I have had a fever off and on since Sunday, and I have no appetite. I hope this goes away soon!
