It seemed to take me FOREVER to get over the m/s, and then we all got a stomach flu. I am finally feeling better and enjoying it while it lasts. I am also more relaxed because I can feel the baby more.

I'm almost there (19.5w). Still feeling crummy in the afternoon, even threw up on Monday trying to take out the trash. And my SI joint pain is kicking in making me walk with a limp sometimes. BUt overall, I have a *bit* more energy and I can feel the baby every now and then, so that makes it all the more worth it.<br><br>
I have a feeeling that while the first half dragged for me, the second half is going to fly by.

I'm here and that is about the best it gets. I did manage to clean the living room and dinning room all by myself yesterday! And I went grocery shopping! But that is it. Tomorrow I go for my u/s so that will be fun. I hit 20 weeks today!

I'm 5 days short of the halfway mark, but so excited about getting here! If it weren't for the back-to-back nasty colds I've gotten over the past few weeks, I'd be feeling great! I can't wait to be rid of my current cold and enjoy the next couple of months before all the discomfort starts in.

I know, crazy, eh? I had better get busy finding day care!!!<br><br>
My hips are freaking killing me when I get up in the morning, so far that's the worst thing that's happening to me.

Halfway.... I am feeling EXHAUSTED. Luckily dh is starting to clue into that fact and is actually helping. Well, two days in a row he has been so hopefully it continues because I really can't keep doing everything (raising 4 kids, educating them, all household responsibilities etc.)<br><br>
129ish days to go....<br><br>
Hmmmmm, would anyone notice if I just went to bed and woke up in 129 days?? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

i could've written that post - except that i'm squeezed between DD and DS, DH is on the other side of DD <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> in fact i was just saying we need to rearrange so that i can be on the outside!<br><br>
other than that, i'm good. of course, i'm not *quite* half-way... i'm 19 weeks tomorrow. but close enough!

I'm 3 days past the halfway point! Still exhausted, that never let up from 1st trimester. Left thigh has been numb for a month now, but doctor says don't worry so I'm zen about it. On Monday my face all of a sudden got really red and hot, and has stayed that way through today despite some things I've tried to help it - lemongrass mint mud mask, calming lotions, aloe, etc. Acne is really bad now, too. I remember some folks talking about "pizza face" in the early weeks - I guess mine waited to show up until now. Using the body pillow every night helps with the hips and sleeping, so that's a blessing. I still haven't felt ANY movement yet, so I'm really looking forward to when that happens.

21 weeks here and I think I feel better when I'm pregnant than when I'm not.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"><br>
Hate getting up in middle of the night for pees, and hate the weight gain <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: (although having the tummy is kinda validating <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">), but otherwise doing really well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
Love the movement and am really excited about meeting baby!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm either 22 or 23 weeks. I forget. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>
I feel very pregnant. Can't imagine feeling any more pregnant than I already do. I have absolutely no idea how I will keep up with my 3 1/2 year old and 2 year old from this point out. Each day I get less and less done in terms of normal keeping up with life stuff.<br><br>
I have so much to make and knit and a diaper stash to get started on too. Just not much motivation because it all costs $$ and I don't want to spend too much. So I technically don't even have supplies (yarn, fabric) yet.<br><br>
I've started feeling baby parts moving across my abdomen. You know when you wonder if it's an elbow or a heel? This baby is a stronger kicker earlier on than my other two pregnancies.<br><br>
I dug out my birth book (a journal with tons of papers stuck in it) and read my lists and birth plan and got on the birth forum with the homebirth supplies sticky and started a list for this time. I found all the blessings that mamas had written and sent with the birth bead swap from my last ddc. And all my pregnancy/birth affirmations. Oh, and my list of labor helps. I guess I'm a lister. I also found my birth art. It was nice reminiscing.<br><br>
I'm exhausted when I don't sleep but pretty much okay until after lunch. I next to never get a nap because my eldest ds doesn't really nap anymore and he is way too creative and inquisitive to be left unattended (he likes to "cook"). Seriously, I need a clone of myself.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Passed the halfway point a week ago and I can still remember those early days when I was so worried about something going wrong. I had one day about 8 weeks in, when I had a little pink discharge and completely lost it, broke down, thought we were doomed. I still worry immensely. I don't know if that will ever go away. But I've been feeling the baby kicking the last few weeks and that is really reassuring. On top of it all, I was dumb enough to opt for the quad test and got a call from the doc's office saying I was at "higher risk than most for my age group" for Down Syndrome and the lady asked if I wanted to do an amnio and have the lvl 2 u/s. I said no, I wanted neither. I'm somewhat concerned, but also kinda pissed that she didn't give me an exact number, so that I could at least have some perspective. I'm hoping my OB doesn't try to pressure me into more testing at our next appt.<br><br>
I'm just trying to take it a day at a time and stay positive and hopeful for the best.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Peace.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Peace">

I know it sounds naive and crazy... but... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br>
I'm very excited to be done with student teaching next week, so I can enjoy the rest of my pregnancy... and actually <i>think</i> about being pregnant.<br>
Besides the tight clothes, I haven't really thought too much about it.<br><br>
I'm pretty zen at the halfway point.

I'm finally feeling great!<br><br>
First few months were really emotionally tough. Then I was having a hard time with morning sickness. Then I was just feeling fat and yucky.<br><br>
Now I'm finally feeling pleasantly preggo, my belly is rounding out & I'm getting excited about getting everything ready!

22 weeks here and I'm feeling big and awkward already. The nausea is gone and I'm a lot happier, but still tired all the time. This pregnancy is so much more exhausting and intense than my first and I get more sleep and rest this time! I'm loving my boobs though (now they're getting to be average size instead of non-existent). And I LOVE feeling all the movement-and being able to see it.
