I should just say that I am in the castle TMI, I am Queen. I do not shy from things that would offend one's delicate sensibilities and do not possess any of my own.

Anyway, here is my first:

I wasn't sure if my boobs were getting "fuller" or not. I thought maybe they were, but I thought I could also be projecting symptoms on this, my still very early stages in PG body.

So, I asked Andy to check last night and he said, "Yeah, they look a little fuller." And then he grabbed one, "Oh WOW, yeah...they're fuller."


There was nothing erotic about this, so it falls within the boundaries established by the user agreement.

LOL. DH and I had a similar conversation a few days ago about how much fuller mine are before dd nurses instead of after. He usually finds them after, so he was really surprised by the size difference! Also not an erotic conversation.

Yeah, I love giving and getting TMI! But, I do warn people when I can by asking, "Hey, would you like 'TMI'? They usually smile, hesitate, but agree to it.

My boobs are a bit fuller, but not much more sensitive than they usually are around menstruation ...

Well, for TMI, I'm the opposite right now. We had the best BD ever last night... although I guess I can't call it that now that there's a baby cooking.

Hee. I think the husbandperson's drive is increasing, mine would be about the same but for the fear-of-puking-or-more-spotting factor.

And yes, why do we not say the word sex on here? "BD" or "DTD" takes longer to type, for me. And gosh darn it, it's called sex!

I told my DP that pregnant sex is the best. even though we're both not in the mood, i can be "talked" into it.

You're right, I just don't want to become a UA violation... because it *was* freaking erotic.

Haha!! My DH did something like this too! I told him my bewbs were really sore and felt much more full and my sports bras weren't comfortable anymore. He didn't believe me. The next day, when I was getting ready (I do my hair and makeup naked) he came up behind me and cupped both of my bewbs in his hands and says, "Those are definitely bigger! You have big tata's now!" Oh sheesh. So, now, he won't stop messing with them!

And, our sex life is totally backwards right now! I'm the one that wants it all the time and DH's drive is practically gone! As far as calling it sex, I only refer to it as BD when we were TTC. If it's just lovey-dovey time, I call it sex.

Well, while we're on the subject...

I think we had more sex when I was PG with DS than at any other point in our lives.

And my boobs most definitely are NOT bigger. I didn't experience bigger boobs with DS until he was born and my milk came in. But I REALLY liked my boobs the first year of breastfeeding. Now they're actually smaller than they were before I was PG, it's so not fair.

My boobs ache. They aren't really sore, just achey. If I wasn't pregnant, I'd be tempted to take a Tylenol. They don't seem bigger, but my sports bra was definitely tight this weekend so maybe they are. With all this aching, they better get bigger next week!

lol, well when i was pg with ds my tatas did get bigger but then after about 4-5 months of breastfeeding they got all small again But alas, I am pg again and they have grown. So all is not lost for me. I guess I just have to always be pg lol.

I second the "pregnant sex is the best" motion!!! Oh. My. God. Delicious. I'm not really in the mood per se, but I can be talked into it with very little work!

And only my left boobie is bigger! I'm all lopsided now and wish my right one would catch up. Dh and I had a laughing fit comparing the two.

I read in one of my pregnancy books that the vagina may feel smaller or tighter because of all the extra blood volume. (Or something like that.) Anyway, I told DH and he was all, "Oh yeah!" in a creepy porn voice.

We're not having issues in the sex department just yet, so we're trying to fill our quota in anticipation of a lull.

If there is any question about this discussion violating the user agreement, I would like to argue that for pregnant women and their partners, this is a quality of life issue that is consistent with the goals of MDC.

I didnt have that problem while pg, but while nursing, DS prefers the right boob to the left one so the left one is bigger. Like a full size and a half bigger lol. It is rediculous. So I stuff my left side. Im pathetic. I feel like a 13 year old girl all over again haha

Are we breaking rules by talking about sex?? This is an adult board, right? We're all of age, right? It's not like we're talking about porn and our fave ones!

We arent having vaginal intercourse at all until I am like 12 weeks along. I dont care how ridiculous it seems. Last time I miscarried it was the day after a particularly fun night. We both agreed we'd feel awful if I miscarried again. Plus my doc at the time said that in a "normal" "healthy" pregnancy sex is fine but if there is any risk you may not want to do it in early pregnancy so I really dont wanna risk it. Plus theres always "other stuff"

So, up until yesterday I was somewhat constipated (like for about a year). Basically only pooping once or twice a week and having a little trouble at that.

Today and yesterday, I had some nice, squishy, stinky poops.

We've only had sex twice since conception, how sad is that? Although, both times it was absolutely amazing, I just can't seem to get in the mood b/c I'm so incredibly exhausted!

Other than that, I feel like I haven't pooped in 80 years and my farts stink to high hell!

I can totally relate!!! We've only had sex 2x since conception and both were fan-freakin'-tastic!. I want it all the time but DH's drive is almost gone. I think he's still afraid he'll hurt the baby or that it's not safe during pregnancy.

And the gas thing! OMG. That was one of my first signs of pregnancy! The smell of my gas changed and it smelled like a baby's diaper! How odd! I thought I was losing my mind until I saw that . I'm not normally a gassy person so this is rediculous!

I'm becoming more constipated as well. Thank goodness I'm taking Juice Plus or I think I wouldn't poop at all! I find that if I have a small cup of decaf coffee in the morning, it jump starts my bowels and gets things moving. It helps. You might try it if you can stomach it. Lots of water helps too.

Oh my, the GAS!!! I am so glad I'm not the only one!!! And I've had the runs actually, up until yesterday. What is it about pregnancy that just makes the emanations of your bowels stink to high heaven?!?!

We've only had sex once since conception! But Dh's been working out of town most of the time, so I think that has the most to do with it. Although last night Dh did make a ridiculous comment about how sex is going to be weird now. I asked him, Oh, why's that? And he says, "Well, I don't want to jizz on the kid's head or anything!" Yeah, this from the guy who knows WAY more than any guy ever wants to about pregnancy and birth. Ok, anatomy lesson commences!!!
