Spring/Summer 2012 Baby Bumps!

8/30...hows everyone feeling?

How is everyone feeling this week???


The m/s and burping are getting progressively worse for me but DH has been great about cleaning and making me dinner!  We had grilled cheese and potato soup last night and it was amazing! 


I did my make up really well today and that made a big difference on how I feel about myself at work!  Yesterday I looked awful!


According to LMP i'll be 6 weeks tomorrow!

I'm feeling pretty miserable. Morning, noon, and night sickness is really kicking in. I'm struggling to keep anything down. I just want to nap all the time.

I'm still finding myself to be exhausted but when it comes to bed time I get a burst of energy and it's annoying!!!  LOL...i'm just ready to feel good again.  I'm only 6 weeks and I told DH I don't know if I can go through all this again and it hasn't really gotten that bad.  But this is my first pregnancy and everyone says by the end it's awesome!  And of course with an awesome result!


I just don't know how i'm going to get through the next 6 weeks at a faster pace because right now it's sooo slow and ugh!

It's gets better - promise!  By the 2nd trimester you start feeling normal and once you start getting that lil bump the excitement kicks in!

The second trimester is awesome from everything I recall. You actually start to look pregnant instead of just fat. lol I felt sooo great with the last one, and DH enjoyed the huge jump in my sex drive. I've read that this is a really common "symptom" of the second tri which is good since the thought of sex makes me want to vomit right now. Then again, what doesn't? lol


Totally convinced this is a girl already. I had no morning sickness with my son, and terrible with both of my girls.

I'm too scared to DTD while pregnant...lol...is that sad?  I feel like i'll be hurting something.  But this may be tmi...so far while being pregnant I feel like a teenage boy with dreams...which then causes me to cramp really bad at night. :/  But are these dreams normal?  LOL...


I'm definitely ready for the 2nd tri.  I want people to know that i'm pregnant and i'm ready to show but I think i'm terrified of getting so big...lol.  I'm only 5'2 so I can't even imagine how big i'm going to get!  I think i'm more curious as to how long i'll be able to work.  I'm very active with my job...teach dance at a high school! 


I think for me reality is setting in and it's sort of freaking me out a bit.

YES THEY DO!!!  It's scary...but they send me into major cramp mode {not in a good way ;)}!  Then I feel guilty like i'm doing something wrong...lol.

First, you're not going to hurt anything! We DTD past our due date with the last one in the hopes that it would start labor. FYI, it didn't work. lol I've never had dreams like yours, but I don't think there is anything wrong with it.


The work thing is really going to be up to how you feel. You will definitely lose your sense of balance in the last trimester, so I wouldn't be doing much dancing. I used to teach, and I quit when I was pregnant because it was just too much for me. You might be in better shape though. I just figured I can't trust my feet if I can't see them.

So far feeling pretty good still. knock on wood! Calm before the storm??? NO m/s yet. Still just tired and a little bloated. I've been trying to at least go on a long walk with my dog to get a little bit of exercise. Pretty sure I am 6 weeks on Friday. I agree this first trimester is going to go so slow. I am dieing to tell friends and family were pregnant but trying to keep the secret. Just both moms know. I don't go to my first dr appointment for three more weeks either...the wait is killing me.


Glad to hear everyone is doing ok minus the m/s.

@NYC.bride - Fingers crossed that you don't get morning sickness! Just know that it's not always that bad. It comes and goes for me. I was so proud to tell DH that I didn't feel sick at all last night. lol It had started getting to a point where I felt sick every time I ate.

I'm feeling a bit better today!  I find that if i'm busy and my mind is on something else i feel better...and most of the sickness is right in the morning, goes away, then comes back after lunch or at dinner time.  I tend to be like Julie and feel sick every time that I eat but I've found some things that help:


Orange Juice...still not sure why this one works!


Spearmint Gum...it's my life saver!!!


I was so excited about going to Logan's steakhouse last night but when they brought me my steak I could only take two bites and then I had to ask the waitress to take it away.  But I ate all my rolls and my entire salad along with my onion petals! I'm hoping the chicken salad sandwich that sounds amazing for lunch will actually agree with me! :)


 


FYI: i'm so excited to see more people posting in this group...I LOVE IT!!! :)

The foods that don't bother me are kinda weird, too. I've been eating alot of scrambled eggs (which I don't usually like). I kept craving this really hot pepperjack cheese that we had in the fridge, but I was really scared about what that might do. Turns out really spicy stuff doesn't bother me at all. I ate a ton of it, and last night I had a bunch of salsa con queso. So hot cheese products work for me. lol

Julie I have been eating a lot of spicy things too and keep thinking ...uh oh am I going to regret this later....and so far I haven't so I am going to keep on going for it :)


Also I had "one of those dreams" last night you girls were talking about which is funny because at the time I didin't relate and now I am like "oooooohhhh I get it."
