Quoting Mama to Lexi & Kinsley:" Quick question, are any of you ladies still having trouble using the bathroom?? I have tried almost everything ... [snip!] ... taken either and it seem to regulate you? I just hate not going and when I do finally go it hurts so bad that im in tears.."


My Dr has me taking Colace twice a day which really seems to be helping. That and a cup of coffee is keeping me pretty regular. I'm also allowed to take Miralax if all else fails.

Pregnancy hormones have OFFICALLY set in!! OMG!! I can't stop crying and getting pissed at every little thing. I start shaking if I get fustrated and im about to "loose" my cool. WTH! lol My mom thinks im completely hilarious and I just get more upset! Any of you ladies have any "cures" or ways to deal with any of this...besides laugh at myself? I mainly need to control my anger issues.. and its not anything extream I just get upset at co-workers for stupid stuff and get fustrated with my DH when they use to not phase me. Sould I talk to my doc about it or will it just be like this till I deliver. The only one I can seem to tolerate is my DD and thats because her cuteness just takes over and how can you be mad when she gives you puppy dog eyes?? lol Other than that im doing pretty good. Im poking out more and still getting morning sickness but its tolerable. No weight gain though so thats a PLUS!!! :)

Thanks hun but I was overweight to begin with, like 30lbs overweight :( so me not gaining anything is what my doc recommended. I will most likley gain it all towards the end like I did with my first. I think all my "belly-ness" is just weight shifted from other parts of my body..lol because IM HUGE!! My family has already commented that im going to be the size of a house by the time DD#2 makes her grand apperance :(

I think you look great with the baby bump. All of the pictures i've seen of everyone on here all look fantastic. I think I look terrible so alas, no pictures of me anytime soon. For those of you mentioning the overweight issue that's where I fall in. I was already overweight to begin with so my baby bump looks more like just baby lumps. My belly hasn't fully rounded out yet so its still hard for people to figure out i'm preggers.



The weird thing was I gained a lot of weight within the first two months. It was like 15 pounds or something. Crazy right? But ever since then I haven't really gained anything. It scared the crap out of me and made me feel like a lard-o.



I'm one of the pregoids that doesn't really enjoy any of the foods I eat so therefore am almost always miserable. I seldom crave anything and its just a minor craving that goes away after I take two bites. :(



But to Lyndsey: I'm the same due date as you! Woot! June 25th! I'm doing a 4D ultrasound on Sunday to find out the gender.

Ayzya - That's awesome :) Mine has changed everytime I go in for an US. My first projected due date was June 27th, which is my birthday...Then it was the 28th which is my BF's. So who knows, we'll have to wait and see...Congrats though! I thought about finding a place nearby that does 3d/4d US and getting one done...still might because I'm so anxious to find out the gender! Is this anyone's first pregnancy? I'm new to all of this lol.

Yeah! It's my first pregnancy too! I am with you on the date. Out of nowhere on one of the paperworks that the doc gave me put my date suddenly as June 27th or something. I'm being a bit greedy about the ultrasounds it probably seems like because i'm getting one done at 20 weeks that was to confirm gender at the docs office, but I'm so stressed out about how the baby is doing that I had to get this 4D thing done early. I know they say you might be able to find out at 16 weeks so I just kinda figured ehh.. why not. I need peace of mind badly. I'm skimping so much on so many other things because I usually spend money like its gonna burn a hole in my pocket, that I'm figuring a splurge like this is worth it.



Even if I don't find out the gender I just want to see my baby. I'm not sure if i'm the only pregnant one on here that doesn't really enjoy the whole experience. I just want my baby here already.

Yea, I was glad it bumped up to the 25th but ya never know when they're gonna decide to come out lol. I really want to do the 4D US but I need to find a place close to where I live that does them. I'm like you though, I get so nervous everytime I go to the doctor but just gotta keep faith :) I've read that during your first pregnancy it can be up to 20 weeks before you feel the baby...about 3 days ago I was getting this muscle twitch in my lower abdomen (almost like when your eye twitches) and everyone was telling me it was most likely the baby, so thats exciting! But I haven't felt much of anything since then :/ which is normal I guess. Are you showing any yet? I'm really short and was curvy to begin with. The past couple weeks I've started getting round on my belly (def looking preggo) but it's not really hard except way above my bellybutton, and after I eat lol. I haven't gained weight either. I actually lost some during my first trimester, and I've gained a few lbs but it's around my pre-pregnancy weight. Glad I have someone to talk to that is in the same stages as I am though! :) And goodluck!
