So, for the last 2 days I just feel...blah, I guess. I've been having a lot of BH's, but nothing regular. But, they are going from being a tightening and breathlessness sensation, to a menstrual cramping feeling. I started having to go to the bathroom all the time (I'd almost forgot about that symptom, I've been so lucky), but not just to pee, my colon has been totally cleaning itself out. I don't want to eat anything, but I make myself. It's not that it makes me sick, I just feel full. Last night, I got into bed and started listening to my hypnosis CD's. But, I was having a really hard time breathing. Almost like I couldn't take a full breath. I was just trying to relax and get over it, but DH asked me what was wrong. He was saying I didn't sound so good, and maybe I shouldn't do the CD's, and relax too much. That kind of worried me, that he could tell that I was having such a hard time. Also, my stomach/abdomen/uterus/whatever has been bothersome, too. I feel like I have to always hold onto it. Not just hold it up, but press down on the top and hold it in.
It's just so strange. I've been so healthy and "feel good" this whole pregnancy, and in the last 2 days it's almost as if the whole thing is catching up to me. I can't catch my breath, my sacrum on the right side hurts, and I'm awkward in my movements.
So, I don't know what is going on. Any ideas from all you experts?
i have no clue if it could be anything serious, but i have felt the same way in that i have stayed healthy and fit this whole pregnancy and this past week has hit me hard! i have been having trouble catching my breath as well, but they checked my BP today and it was fine. ::shrug::
it may just be pregnancy #3, it could just be it's all catching up with us now...you are due in earlier january right?
Ya I have been blah for going on what , two weeks now ? And I mean majorly blah lol , I have also been getting out of breath , one night last week I couldn't breath all of the sudden while I was falling asleep , I had to get up out of bed to try and catch my breath which only worked a lil . And feel the colon cleansing thing as well just a lil , not too bad though . Hopefully if it is a bug or something it'll ease up soon , if it's not I guess it's just like Val said , your pregnancy catching up to you !
Either way I hope you get to feeling better .

as yucky as we may feel, i really think our bodies are just getting ready! we all are so much more mentally invested in our pregnancies and we are listening to our bodies and notcing things going on. in the bigger picture, it really is a good thing! embrace the blah - love it - feel it - look at as your body is working!
