I will try not to judge but my second trimester sucks and everything I read says I should be feeling good. I'm still nauseous, still throwing up a few times a week, still under pre-preg weight but at the same time I'm HUGE and super uncomfortable and my vag hurts (sorry tmi)

Is this you...
"You may feel comfortably pregnant. Your enlarging abdomen is not too large and doesn't get in your way much. You're still able to bend over and to sit comfortably. Walking shouldn't be an effort. Morning sickness has probably passed, and you're feeling pretty good. It's kind of fun being pregnant now!"

This is me, but I feel like maybe my pregnancy isn't typical compared to other women. I get a lot of flack from girls I know who have had babies, because I never had any morning sickness or raging hormones (I've just generally been pretty happy throughout this pregnancy). So I'm not sure if I'm a good person to be voting here? lol - this is my first pregnancy to progress past 8 weeks so I don't know what's normal and what isn't.

It is somewhat me.. However, I was like you Jenny with my 1st. Not an ounce of MS. Not a single complication. I was happy and comfortable. My hormones weren't bad. The only time I didn't like it was at the end when I was huge and 10 days past my due date. This time has been totally different and I don't feel great but MS has passed and I'm not super huge so all in all, I guess I feel pretty good considering I'm growing a human.

This is pretty much me. I have engery, am no longer sick, the belly is obvious but not in the way. My only problem is I keep getting sick. I actually have a slight fever tonight. I don't think I have had a fever in 10 years

My morning sickness and severe fatigue went away around 16 weeks. I feel huge and some of my abdominal muscles really hurt from stretching, but generally I'm not in too much pain or too awkward yet (although I did have some swollen, painful crotch issues a couple of weeks ago). I've started itching a little though, so I am afraid that my third trimester from hell due to cholestasis might be starting early, but still crossing my fingers that I won't get it.

Ha! No. Belly is big and in the way, my feet swell after being on them for more than an hour, its getting uncomfortable to walk, and my lower pelvis feels like its starting to pull apart. Ow.

Definitely NOT me! I'm HUGE, belly is always so tight, hips ache, legs ache with varicose veins ( I think even my lady bits have them) everything is dragging on the floor! LOL The past few days I've been near tears at how big and uncomfortable I am already!

My first and second pregnancies I was perfect though, so I guess the 3rd is harder! lol

I have a constant pressure in my chest that makes me queasy still. I'm tired, and I get out of breath climbing the 4 steps to my house. I'm constantly angry and hungry. So tired of being pregnant!

No, though I keep hoping I'm on my way. My nausea is rare and I'm off the Zofran, but I'm seeing a chiropractor three times a week because my neck and back were so messed up and causing tension headaches daily, which triggered a daily migraine. It's better, but still with the ligament pain and some discomfort. I'm better than I was, but if this is the honeymoon stage the end worries me.

I am huge already and uncomfortable. My hips are constantly giving me problems and my pubic bone feels like its going to break in half and pops all the time. I am usually sick my whole pregnancy so I'm used to that but the hip and pelvic issues just plain suck!

i never had morning sickness or anything like that but i'm just so exhausted all the time. i thought it would have gotten a little better but i'm still always freaking tired. i'm not huge, but i feel like i am, especially when i'm standing up or walking ugh. i haven't gained any weight though. my lower abdomen hurts from stretching and if i move a certain way or reach for something it's worse. i'm so ready for this baby to be out already. hurry up october!

Babygreenes, my ob told me at my last appointment if I'm having trouble breathing, which I am, like you, then no more sleeping on my back. We only have a few weeks left anyways and we shouldn't be doing it regardless.

I voted yes, it's not perfect, but around 18 weeks I became a lot less miserable, then last week I discovered that having a pillow between my knees almost eliminates my hip pain, so I'm feeling pretty good now!

Not nauseous anymore, but still tired. I feel like I should be in my 3rd tri already by the size of my belly.

I'm getting the lightning crotch too! Lol.

And my tummy bumped into the fridge yesterday.
No M/S but I am getting Braxton Hicks Contractions pretty often.

My first two pregnancies were pretty easy. This one, my body is just more tired and worn out I guess. Kid #3 for the win!!
