So how many of us are in the 'I don't feel pregnant stage'?

How many of us are still dealing with MS?

My MS has dwindled down to a 2 on a scale of 1-10 and I am feeling pretty normal again. Other than the belly and the occasional baby movements, and the annoying round ligament aches every now and again, I would say that I definitely don't feel pregnant!

My MS is about a 2, like yours. Maybe a 3. I'll take it though! At night, I definitely feel pregnant since sleeping isn't going so well. However, there are days that I don't feel pregnant at all though. My growing belly an those movements remind me though!

It still does not feel real to me...not sure why since this is my 5th, I've had 2 u/s's, heard the heart beat and I have the worse 24/7 sickness. I think because I don't "look" pregnant yet....I'm in maternity pants, but I just look like I've put on a few pounds....not pregnant...

I'm there! Is this what they call the second trimester bliss? I feel really super good. I have a small belly, but nothing uncomfortable yet. No m/s. Minus headaches, I feel amazing.

MS has become super tolerable. It gets bad if I don't eat but stays away most other times. Refilling Zofran just to be on the safe side but I probably won't even use half of this bottle.

I'm feeling pretty pregnant. Very exhausted. Lots of pee. Congestion with no cold, super dry mouth, crying a lot. Last night I accidentally elbowed Bueller in the face and I immediately began to sob and hold her, apologizing. My DF was laughing so hard and that only made me cry more.

My tummy has also become firm. I can't suck in anymore.

I don't feel any different either. No frequent potty breaks, nothing just bloating. It stinks because I really don't look preggers, just chunky.

I feel pregnant. I have felt baby since 9.5 weeks, and feel he/she everyday now. The ms is gone but man do I get dizzy/winded often. If I didnt know better I would think I were having twins!!! My belly is huge! I mean, I was overweight before, but I did not have a belly, it looked flat for the most part... NOW?!! I couldnt pass this off as "extra weight" If I wanted to. Its THAT obvious. I feel kind of fat though LOL.

Ugh, I totally feel pregnant - but that's ok.

Baby has been head down since around 12 weeks and is giving my sciatica a run for it's money. If I'm on my feet for any amount of time, my lower back and butt cheeks/upper legs start hurting fierce. My belly is big enough to make it harder to turn over in bed....

Good news, only like 5 months to go.. LOL

I don't feel pregnant. I just feel and look like I'm getting fat (which sucks..) lol I haven't had MS at all and haven't felt any movements. My mom was asking me the other day if I've felt any movement and I told her I didn't think so but I don't know what I should really be feeling. Her explanation was butterflies and gas.... haha thanks mom. Only thing that has really changed is the terrible headaches I've been getting.

I definitely feel pregnant. My morning sickness has now whittled down to just the morning instead of all day so I'll take it! I do get dizzy some if I do too much so I have to take frequent breaks. I have food aversions to pretty much everything but especially raw meat! I gag at the thought of it

Definitely feeling pregnant here too. I can totally feel my bump when I sit down, when I first get up to walk after sitting for a while, and when I am trying to sleep. I am so happy that my MS is also pretty much gone. I occasionally still get a bad taste in my mouth, or gag when brushing my teeth, but otherwise, it is gone.

Love this stage!

Depends. My insurance declined to pay for my Zofran over the weekend. Rather than pay $100 I opted to have a go without it. Day 5 and so far so good. I have to be really careful about eating every 2 hours but I'm managing. My hip pain is a fairly constant reminder. I've been feeling movement more and more and just started having BH this past week. All that adds up to feeling pretty preggers. I'm still in denial that a baby is coming in roughly 5 months.

No morning sickness at all!! Which is so weird, I had awful morning sickness up until roughly 10-11 weeks so bad that my dietician said I had hyperemsis gravidarium! Right now my morning sickness is a 0!!

On the other hand my belly is round now and showing, and I have the linea negra and also a little sprinkling of acne, lol.

The times I feel the most pregnant are when I am standing up and can feel the baby move. My placenta is anterior (upper left anterior), so the Dr said I will feel movement later. That is probably why I never feel him move when I'm sitting or lying down. But the moment I stand up, if he's awake it's a totally different story! It's like YES, I am pregnant and the baby is saying hi lol.

The last week or so I haven't felt pregnant other than a bigger belly. It's kind of weird but enjoying it for now until the uncomfortable part starts.

I still feel kinda first-trimester..y but I'm still earlier than most. It's getting better as the days go on. The MS has almost completely gone away but the migraines are still sticking around for now, and the lack of energy. Regardless, I don't feel pregnant. I never do, until the baby starts rolling around in there

I feel that I'm looking more pregnant - my boobs have all of a sudden grown and my belly is starting to look like a pregnant belly/feel more firm opposed to just 'fat'...in that sense I feel pregnant.

As for feeling different, I still feel pretty much the same. I didn't have any morning sickness but did experience quite a bit of exhaustion - for the most part I am able to stay up later now, yet I still get exhausted quickly after activity. I took the dog for an hour power-walk in the woods yesterday and had a nap right after, lol.

I don't really feel pregnant. I'm exhausted still, but I think that's more from my other 2 not sleeping well than from pregnancy. MS has pretty much dwindled. I have a day here or there where I feel awful, but they are much fewer than they used to be. And I haven't felt baby yet, so I don't have that part of the picture.
