I would love any tips! I can't imagine how uncomfortable everyone feels at 38 weeks if I feel this uncomfortable now! I hate complaining but it's true.



BP naturally starts to go up around the 2nd trimester. Mine is low like yours, too. Usually around 90/60 or 100/75 or something, and right now it's more like in the "optimal" range so I start to feel it pretty quickly having been so accustomed to having low BP for so long.

 

As for comfort: body pillow!!! I can't recommend it enough. I love mine. There's also this thing I've seen tons of people talk about called a Snuggie? It's like a C-shaped body pillow that can fold around you so you can put it between your knees, around your back and under your head at the same time. Looks super comfy.

CrunchyClark, that shirt came from Target in their maternity section!  I love Target maternity clothes...they are usually pretty stylish and not too expensive!

Somehow I'm 20 weeks already and the time is flying by!

It must be chasing the toddler and 7y/o that's making this pregnancy seem soooo much faster than the last two...

18 weeks today!  Comparing this pic to last weeks makes it seem like my belly hasn't grown that much...it sure feels like it though!

Okay, this was 18 weeks, like a week and a half ago. Anyone know how to rotate pics?

Thank you Rach03! I found the shirt yesterday at Target :)  Whoohoo!  It was exactly what I was looking for :)  I wear a TON of 'black and stretchy' (per my teens who help with laundry LOL). But, I don't have a huge wardrobe, so I do lots of black for shirts/dresses/skirts/etc. and then have bright scarves/other accessories so it seems like I have more things to wear!

19 and a half weeks. Post dinner, lol. Anyone have any idea how to rotate images here? In my photobucket and desk top my pics face the right way, then I upload them here and they don't.

OrangeMoon, you can download and install Gimp (The GNU Image Manipulation Program) for free if you don't have something like Photoshop, MS Office Picture Manager, or another picture manager. I haven't used it since I have another program but heard it works just fine and it's free which I always love!

23 weeks today with our first baby, and it's a girl. :)  I didn't think I was really showing until I took today's picture. I have a little dip where my belly button is, but that is starting to even out now too.  I think all of your bellies are glorious!  I wish mine was that round!  Seems I've gotten a little wider too, especially in my hips.  Could be I hadn't gotten off my butt for 4 days because of the weather in the Ft Worth area. I feel so beautiful though...except for the acne appearing on my face. I haven't really enjoyed pregnancy so far, but now the headaches are a little better and I'm actually starting to show. 23 weeks today.JPG

Finally a pic of my belly at 22 weeks. It's hard to believe I've still got another 4+ months (#1 was 17 days late) of growth ahead of me! 5ce0920b-80c6-3fae.jpg

I'm going to have to download the picture I just took at 21 weeks, but I just went back and looked at my belly last pregnancy and can I just say I'm scared?!  I'm as big at 21 weeks this time as I was at almost 34 weeks last time.  jaw.gif

Here's me at 23 weeks. I feel happy when I see my belly!

Unfortunately, I got a really cruel series of comments from a friend of mine about my weight a couple weeks ago. It's been hard to shake off, truthfully.  It's great to have a safe place to celebrate our bodies!
