How is everyone feeling today??

I'm so/so. i woke up in a lot of pain. I think I slept wrong and it hurt my back. Ugh. So I haven't been doing much. Been putzing on the computer and reading. I played w/ the kids too of course and actually got the dish washer loaded. I can't believe how much I'm hurting tho...

Emotionally I'm feeling more positive about this pregnancy at last. I still worry off and I and drive my poor DH nuts, but I'm starting to feel like perhaps this little one will make it.

Do any of you keep a pregnancy journal? I keep one on paper and one online so my friends & family can keep up w/ the pregnancy. I love journaling.

I'm doing alright this morning. I feel your pain, literally. It's like I can't get comfortable at night and my DH makes fun of the fort of pillows I have around me. I've dealth with sciatic pain for the past few years and it seems like the pregnancy makes it worse.
You know, I've been wanting to start a journal, I just haven't because I remember I did with my first pregnancy and then it ended, so I just couldn't bring myself to start one. I feel pretty good now, so maybe today is a good day to start writing.

I'm sorry you're both in so much pain! At least you have an excuse to make a fort, though! I haven't kept a pregnancy journal with this one. I did with others and because I kept losing the pregnancies, I didn't want to have to go through it again. Once I start feeling better, then I might start one. Is that cheating?

I'm so glad you're excited about your pregnancy!!! Your little one WILL make it!!! You and your DH deserve to be happy about this one.

I'm not even that far along and my back is killing me all of a sudden. Other than that, typical pregnancy stuff and paralyzing worry over an ultrasound today!

Jessica my back is killing me too! It's that "it hurts so good" kind of pain though...reminds me that there's a baby in there and my body is preparing for the long road ahead. I told my b/f to remind me not to complain about any aches because I am welcoming them all if it means my baby is healthy!
It's funny you thought up the journal thing...I was feeling a bit down yesterdya and had a new journal so I opened it up and wrote my baby a letter...I've decided that I will continue to write to the baby about what I'm thinking and feeling throughout these 9 months and perhaps when the baby is an adult give it to him/her so he/she will know I loved them from the start. I am a little scared of something going on but I decided to face my fear and do what I want to do regardless of the "what if's" we can't live our life by what if's right?

Wow, I thought it was just me...my back has been hurting everday for the last week or so.It usually just last for the morning and disappears.

I'm doing ok today. I was feeling great until I went to the store to do groceries. Several things went wrong: First, I get halfway done and it hits me that I've GOT to pee. So, i think, maybe I can finish this up really fast, as I do the pee-pee dance down the produce isle. Then I get one of my dizzy spells and realize that I haven't eaten much of anything today. So, i just left and went to check out. Before the cashier could say a word, I said " I-have-to-use-the-restroom-please-start-checking-me-out-Im-sorry" When I got back, she was laughing and said "you must be pregnant"

Wel, i got out to the car and at some cookies and felt not so dizzy and went home. Now I am about to take a nap. That's the end of my adventure in Walmart.

im' not a big jounaler, so I dont think I will do that. I plan on starting a scrap book once I get a good heartbeat and I think I will write a few letters to the baby to put in there.

Dancing at 5 am?!?! Where do you get the energy?! I certainly don't have it... not that I can dance

My back is better today, now I have a headache. I think that's exhaustion. My oldest had a bug of some sort this weekend and we were up all night w/ him throwing up. Poor kid. He's doing 100% better today... but I'm exhausted.
