Heartburn is full force for me now! I've never had heartburn before in my life, but it showed up just before Thanksgiving and now returns every night My nausea is not bad anymore, which is wonderful. Except for when I eat cinnamon toast crunch....then I'm pretty much instantly sick.
Anyone struggling with the "fun" symptoms of sciatica? I find the baby will lay on my nerve for 2-3 days at a time, making walking super painful and really unsure ("when I take this step, will my leg give out?"), but then he'll move and it will be a week or two before he puts himself back there. This I can deal with. I'm very much hoping he doesn't get comfortable there and refuse to move!
I'm definitely a hungry pregnant thing all of a sudden, too. I don't even WANT to know what I weigh now. I'm sure it's more than I'm willing to have knowledge of. So hungry!
really having a hard time ladies, i tried to go shopping last night and i got so discouraged, all my clothes dont fit obviously.... but all my non pregnant friends get to look sexy and fabulous i just want my baby to be here and to have my body back and lose the stretch marks. On the bright side my mom has been planing a baby shower and i'm excited for that as well as christmas
Athena- I have had bad sciatica off and on.. It seems I get a few days of it then it goes away for a bit,. I had it really bad at the beginning of 2nd tri.. So far since my lo has switched positions I've been good.. I googled stretches and they seem to help a bit.. I also use a heating pad when it gets bad
no snow here, just bitterly bitterly cold =( Stuff going on with little man, so being pregnant has kinda slipped my mind lol! apart from the bump, and finding clothes lol!
oo third trimester for me on Sunday =) xxx

My heartburn was *really* bad the first tri...The whole time I thought it was just nausea, took the occasional anti-nausea med and it wouldn't do anything. My throat kept feeling sort of tight, so I tried Tums and it'd help for a very little while. So I told my midwife about it and she gave me Zantac (you can buy it over the counter too! Mine was the Zantac 150, but it comes in 75 too) and it was practically INSTANT relief. It left around 12/13wks. But it's weird, mine starting coming back a bit right around Thanksgiving too....so I've had to take a Zantac in the evening a few nights a week now
AmyB - I think you are feeling things that all of us are feeling on certain days. It all IS a very scary process! We may have different histories and be facing different issues in specific at the moment but it's all super stressful and you're right to get it all out as bottling it all inside won't do you any good. There are days where I tell my husband that I wish I could just take the bump off for a few hours and if he wouldn't mind carrying it for a bit. He laughs but I know he's also a bit taken aback…but it SUCKS! It hurts! I'm tired too…we all are…and that's why we're all here to support each other through the bad days I don't know much about GD but I do hope that it will be something you won't have to worry about…GL on Monday and big big hugs to you!
sportys - did you fail the one hour test or do you have history of GD? How come you're doing the 3 hour test? Good luck to you on Friday!!!!
Welcome bladesgirl! Based on your symptoms, you've come to the right place - we're all there with you!!!
Athena - the amount of sugar in cinnamon toast crunch will make anyone nauseated on an empty stomach! Or maybe it's just the cinnamon that I don't like…my bean chills on my nerve every few days and the sciatica is bad where I have trouble walking or moving from standing to sitting and vice versa but then she moves and it's better. Same thing just every few days it changes rather than weeks.
Heaven - there are days where I feel like nothing fits and I just want to cry. Mainly, those are days when I need to put on something nice to meet friends for dinner or what not…I'm much happier in my Gap yoga pants!!!! It's hard to watch your body change…and they DO have some cute sexy preggo stuff…have you ever looked on ASOS? They are an online website that has a pretty nice maternity section of trendy clothes. Check it out!
27 weeks tomorrow! CANNOT believe the third tri is at my front doorstep! I'm not ready!!!!!!!!! We really need to get that crib ordered….
