I've been doing much better, but this week a stomach bug has hit us. UGH. And I think I'll now not be able to continue with my Zumba class, as if you miss too many classes, yer outta there! We've had some conferences and such, and now....

OH, Sandi! I hope they let you back in. I went to my Zumba class today and it kicked my butt, but I paid attention to all the signs (heat, hr..) and I was fine. I love Zumba. I did Zumba until the morning DD2 was born and hope to continue the trend this time around! I swear that's what spurred the early/super fast labor. I am not complaining and I'd love a repeat!

So many appointments, Melissa!

AFM: feeling pretty good now that I'm back in the swing at the gym. IL's are coming tomorrow for a whirlwind weekend and then back again 2 weeks later for DS's 3rd birthday, so this afternoon and tomorrow a.m. it's all about cleaning. I need a nap, too!

School starts next week, so I know my schedule will really get a boost and this pregnancy will seem to fly by.

No horrible symptoms... tired, a little discomfort, but it's good!

Next appointment is the end of the month, and in less than 2 weeks, I'll hit viability, which is a huge milestone for us all

I've actually been feeling energetic. Thankfully. Ignoring the shortness of breath and severe GERD (and the damage i am doing to my esophagus.. ugh) -- things are great. I have my 27 week appointment after labor day. Just another boring appointment. My 32 week appointment the first week of October, we have an u/s scheduled to make sure my placenta has moved up.

feeling pretty good, just soooo exhausted all the time. I'm a person that needs alot of sleep to function already so pregnancy is kicking my butt. I have to say I think my nesting instinct is kicking in though.. I'm not the type to constantly clean, I usually wait until I can't take it anymore and do one big cleaning. but lately if im not sleeping, i feel horrible if i dont clean. laundry, dishes, everything I usually hate LOL hopefully it continues because it's a good habit to have! I have an appt with my new ob next week.. fingers crossed I really like her!

I feel ok most of the time. Still nauseous a lot and of course, the heartburn. My little bout with vertigo is finally over (lasted about 2 weeks). My normal feet/ankle swelling still has not arrived so fingers crossed that it passes me by this time. The tiredness is creeping back in as I get bigger.

No big appointments to speak of. My next regular appt. is on September 5. I'll do my second one hour GTT around then, too.

I have felt the worst in the past week that I have in years, to be honest.

And I am busy as you know what, in addition to that.

Oh, and I just did a bunch of laundry, washed a motherload of dishes, got the oil changed and packed my family because we are headed out of town for the 2nd time this week...this time for a funeral.

I am NOT in a good mood AT ALL.

I'm feeling alright, although I've got lots of sciatic nerve pain and my hips have been bothering me. Probably because I forgot to take my body pillow on vacay with me! We did ask for extra pillows, so hopefully I'll sleep better tonight. We've got two more days at the beach, the weather is looking great, and we're going out for a nice dinner tomorrow night! DH and I are getting along great. I'm so glad I don't have to go back to work until Tuesday. And Tuesday afternoon we go back for an ultrasound to finish up the fetal survey. After that we go back for a growth scan on September 10th and from then on we'll have growth scans every 4 weeks!

Other than the terrible cold turned sinus infection that I've been battling for the past 2 weeks, I'm feeling pretty good. At least, much better than I expected at this point. I no longer have the 1st trimester yuckiness of feeling like I need to sleep and puke all day, nor do I have the rabid hunger of early 2nd trimester. No back or hip pain to speak of, and the incidences of pulling a stomach muscle when moving around funny have also decreased. As I'm likely measuring 28 to 29 weeks now, I'm sure my "honeymoon period" is coming to an end and I'll start getting all those lovely aches and pains soon, and the resurgence of heartburn.

I'm afraid to say this because it might come to an abrupt end, but I'm actually not feeling too bad these days. I can't believe it. The back and hip pain isn't as bad as it was I think she is head down now and not transverse (kicks higher in my belly instead of in my pelvic area). Hopefully it stays this way.

im ok, minus pressure headaches above my eyes... and lower back pain.

my next appointment is the 26th which i guess is a big appointment, since i find out the gender finally from the ob...but ill probably have to ask since theyve never openly shared any results from any ofmy labs.

Feeling pretty good here too. This may sound silly, but all those months TTC....this is the point I couldn't wait to get to....big belly, feeling movements, undeniably pregnant and feeling better than I have since the first symptoms at 3 weeks. I lost my body pillow and desperately need a new one because sleeping without it causes hip and back pain while I sleep and that wakes me up, plus I get these pains in my belly if I turn over to quickly or move to fast. I always get that at this point in pregnancy. I guess my only complaint is that i want to sleep more...I usually get to bed by 9:30 but don't sleep until around 11 and then i am up by 5. I have a regular midwife appointment next Thursday and my monthly ultrasound with the MFM/Genetics specialist next Monday and then the big Echo Fetal Cardio Gram on Sept 3. School starts on the 29th so I am sure the craziness of this house will come to a slow down, at least for six hours a day.....
