* Boobs are bigger with more pronounced veins, but feel okay
* Abdominal area is crazy bloated
* Out of breath
* Nausea is creeping in...usually in the morning
* I'm hungry ALL THE TIME. I just had dinner with dh and he can't believe that I am already hungry again. He's cutting up some fruit for me now. It's not that I need to eat tons *more*, just that I need to be munching just about all the time.
* I'm starting to feel fatigue. I took a 15 minute nap in the car earlier and felt so refreshed.
Mother of 3, welcomed a new baby girl July 2011
Today I'm just really sad. Sad about everything. I chalking it up to hormones. It sucks. I just want to cry, cry, cry--and I don't really know why :
I am also starving. When I eat I have to force myself to stop, otherwise I could really eat a ton. I guess it is the nursing. But then today after snacking on some sesame tortilla chips I felt so queasy. Guess maybe I ate too many? I wouldn't mind skipping m/s again, but if I have to have it for my pg to be different this time and maybe have a GIRL I will deal with it!
Or the smell of bacon cooking? *shudder*
I thought the m/s was bad before...I've been dragging myself off the floor for the last few days. I'm bloated, feel like I'm growing a ton (lots of round ligament pain)
Never had a problem with it before. The smell now? OMG, get me to the toilet, please! It wakes me up from my deep, DEEP sleepy slumber, even these days!
OK, now this may sound like an odd question, but does anyone else get way hairy during a pregnancy? I don't really get the sore bbs until later, and I don't normally battle constant m/s, but I become sasquatch woman. I feel like I'm constantly having to shave or pluck something. It's fortnate that I have fine, fair hair, but there's just so much if it. If I went without plucking, I'm sure in no time I would have a Bert (of Bert and Ernie fame) unibrow, and a 70s mustache I don't even want to say what I would look like if I didn't shave. So weird, but even around my belly button, hair has appeared out of nowhere. I don't mind it when the hair atop my head becomes full and luxurious, but I do mind it when my belly button hair does.

The smell of just peas, of all things, in the car the other day was making me gag.
*Excessive thirst/hunger (I feel like the venus fly trap in Little Shop of Horrors..."Feed me Seymour"!!!)
*Bloating, stinky farts, and general wierd gurgles in the colon region
*Cramping in the uterus region
*Waking up at 4 am every night with incredible urge to pee
*Mild nausea, but no vomiting spells
*Little crazy "inside" alter-ego person erupted a couple of times when I really needed to eat
I say enjoy the sadness, watch a tear-jerker like beaches and just ball your eyes out. It's so funny, that is how I knew I was pregnant every time. I am not a crier so much, but I will cry at an AT&T commercial before I realise I am pregnant. I was watching some tv show and bawling this time and realized "I must be pregnant" One pregnancy test (alright 3 pg tests) later and here I am. Who are you seeing for your pregnancy and where are you planning to deliver?
I've been crying at everything lately too. I was having a rough morning yesterday--super sad and down again. I was standing in line at the zoo, holding my dd and chatting away when I heard a little voice down by my leg. A sweet little girl was looking up at me and said, "You look really pretty". You do not know how much I needed to hear that. I teared up a bit and thanked her
My mouth is hurting but it's because I had a wisdom tooth pulled yesterday so it's only contributing to making me feel not so great.
I am so happy to be pregnant again though!
