You would think that by the third child you would know the ins and outs of pregnancy, but nope. I am finding that each one is very different. We just found out we are pregnant and mid-tri. It's so amazing and I truly feel so blessed!! My biggest challenge is staying off of my medication. I usually take Zoloft and really don't want to expose my baby to it. Last time around, my child was exposed as little as possible (I became severely depressed while pregnant), the first time around I was totally fine without any medications. This time around its been a day by day, hour by hour thing. I tapered off when we found out and have been off since, but it's really hard at times.
That's my biggest struggle right now. I have morning sickness, headaches, crave fruit and ketchup/french onion dip, hold back tears at every emotion sometimes--very sensitive, really tired (actually, usually exhausted after doing minor chores around the house even). I think the fatigue may be contributing to my struggles especially since I do daycare and my little tikes are pretty busy. I'm ready to fall on my face around 9 or 10 am some days.
Anyway, I am really glad to have found a site that deals with pregnancy!!
Hi there. I'm new to the boards too. I just found them today. I've been going to a couple other mothering/pregnancy sites and came across this one. I really like it so far.
I'm pregnant with #3 and will be 41 in a couple of weeks. Some parts of the pregnancy have been tough (especially the acid reflux!!) and some have been okay. It's actually been easier than I thought it would be, well once I got past the morning sickness in the first trimester. That was horrid! But I've had it with all of my pregnancies.
hi. i totaly understand the thing about each pregnancy being differant. with all of my other pregnancies i had a ton of symptoms right from the beginning and this time around i have a lack of symptoms as a matter of fact i poas yesterday to remind myself that i was really pregnant (like the blood work wasnt proof enough) anyways.....
i am faith 38 yrs old and pregnant with #4 due in may 2010
