How are all the older Mama's doing?


There doesn't seem to be too much action in this forum. I just wanted to stop by and see how everyone is doing on their journey.


I'm going to start my 2nd trimester soon, so I'm excited about that and almost believing that I'm pregnant finally!

I couldn't wait to start showing. It seemed like it would take ages, and now all of a sudden I am showing and I feel like time is just flying by. I used to feel like I was researching everything prematurely, now I feel like I haven't researched enough for where I am.

I am starting to get more hormonal and more easily tired out. I am nesting and trying not to stress out about finances and just enjoy this time since it will be my last pregnancy. I am simultaneously giddy and frazzled. I think I might be driving DH insane.

Largely fine but then there are bouts of nausea... Mostly I am at a loss at what to eat!! My gct was 154 and so I've been ordered off sweets including fruits... I try to take salads but they r not as filling... Somehow I just don't want to eat anything despite being hungry but I'm also pretty concerned my babies will not get the required nutrition... Any advice?

Hello! I'm almost at the end of the second trimester. So far this part has been uneventful, I even forget I'm pregnant at times, until a good kick reminds me

I'm followed very closely because my first was a micro preemie but so far, so good

I had to give up all grains for medical reasons and am allergic to many fruits so all I eat are mostly veggies and meat, mostly in the form of salads. When I first made the transition i thought I was starving to death but the trick to feeling full for me was to get plenty of meat and fats, so I use a lot of olive oil, eat sugar-less peanut butter, and eat more meat then I used to.

Good luck!

No fruits? Oh my. I wish I had some advice. I know I need to eat better but I'm still trying to get over this m/s!
