M/s has eased up, thankfully. I haven't been sick since 14 weeks and I'm 21 weeks now. I have lots more energy too. I definitely feel better, but the symptoms I feel now are really horrible heartburn all day and the feeling that I'm whale-size already. It's so hard to move around! So... since I still have a long way to go... I assume the heartburn and the difficulty being mobile will get worse! It's ok though. She's kicking away now, and that makes it worth it!

I feel really good right now. I've actually had energy for the last few weeks. And he's kicking the crap out of me now, so that is wonderful! My BP has been completely normal for weeks (all on it's own) and everything is perfect so far. My only complaint right now is that I have Pubic Symphasis Dysplasia pain...my pubic bone is sooooo tender and my groin is sore...I walk around like a duck!

I am almost 17 weeks now. Most days I feel okay, not great. Still zero energy and now I seem to have REALLY crampy days. The good news is I feel the baby rolling around it there a lot tha past few days Makes up for EVERYTHING else

I am having a hard time believing I am even in the second trimester. My m/s has not eased up much yet but it really has not been that bad over all. I do find it's worse at bedtime - regardless of whether I eat a late snack or avoid a late snack. I am feeling my energy slowly coming back too. I will be excited to see it return - even if it is short lived.

Thanks Chelsea (GraysMama) for my fantastic signature!

Life as it is...

Love your angel babies for making you the person you are!

I am MUCH less sick as long as I eat every few hours. If I miss a snack, I start feeling awful really quick. My belly is huge or feels it anyway. I feel crampy and sore a lot, but I am chasing around my son all day so I think that is why. I am feeling the baby more but still not big kicks like I want to feel. I think in the next two weeks that will start. Still, so glad to have less sickness and a bit more energy back

I'm almost 25 weeks and feel great. M/s is gone but heart burn has set in. I have tons of energy, except that my belly is getting in the way. The only bad thing is that everything is starting to ache now....the sciatic pain is starting and it's getting harder to bend over and lift my legs. other than that it's awesome!

I'm 21 weeks and feeling great physically. I never had morning sickness but I do have most of my energy back. I'm starting to feel a little bit of normal pregnancy aches and pains but nothing terrible. I think as I creep closer and closer to 26 weeks (when I lost my other son) I'm starting to lose it a little more emotionally. I have another ultrasound set for about 24.5 weeks to hopefully ease my mind a little bit.

I am feeling alright. I am really, really tired still. The M/S is gone but the heartburn has taken it's place. Water gives me heartburn, even. But what're ya gonna do, right?

Otherwise, baby boy is kicking and seems to be growing/doing well as far as measurements go.

16 weeks and feeling a lot better. Now I just want to eat random food and then cry about stuff. But, no more morning sickness.

I'll get a little nauseated from heart burn though
