My kids reactions to the baby kicking them
Knowing that even while sitting on the couch watching TV and neglecting my housework I am still WORKING.
Not so fave:
Feeling sore this early in the pg
Not being able to pick up the kids very often
Having to really slow down with everything-from walking, cleaning to the fun stuff like playing or having sex.
- Feeling and seeing movement. So stinkin' cool!
- The belly. Really. Maybe I'm just naive because I have yet to experience that last-few-weeks belly, but I am really enjoying the bump and the way I look in the right clothes.
- How over-the-moon excited dh is every time he feels a kick or we look at baby clothes, and how much love he looks at me with even when I think I look like a hot mess and I've been crying about things like baked goods and not having enough clothes.
- Crying about things like baked goods and not having enough clothes.
- The aches and pains, and the lack of sleep that comes with it.
- I don't want to go into detail on the main board (and because, frankly, it's gross), but a hemorrhoid has been making my life a living hell for a little while now. It's just one, but it's terrible.
DD's haugs and kisses for baby/belly
How great I look and feel with the right clothes and attitude and all the compliments I get Not so faves:
Nausea that lasted until 18 weeks
SPD and ligament pain as belly gets bigger
Wt gain....its not much...but a tad more than I like
MOVEMENT - I adore feeling him move
DH snuggling with the belly to hear his heart & talk to him (plus they poke each other)
Of course seeing & hearing him via Doppler or ultrasound.
Not so favorite:
NO ENERGY - I was tired with DS but this is ridiculous. I get like 1-2 spurts of energy a WEEK. Feel either like an old woman or a lazy slob most of the time.
PAIN - I have gotten used to living with chronic pain in the last 2 years, but this is starting to get to the point of " I can't deal with this or I'll go insane!" especially since I am not allowed my chronic pain med & only Tylenol atm. Will hopefully be getting in with the pain clinic soon so they can MAYBE help get me relief without doing harm to my boy.
Cramping (legs & back) - Feeling like I want to jump out of my skin.
Just being downright uncomfortable!!!
