Hey all, I have not been on in awhile; I hope all is going well with everyone. However, I have a question for you ladies- as of yesterday I have been feeling an uncomfortable pain in the upper right area of my stomach- is anyone else? Normal? I picked a bad time to switch doctors.

that would really suck if she just did :(
maybe I should consider going to the ER for a checkup? Idk
would you recommend it?
or should I just go to the non-emergency part of a hospital?



I have insurance, but because of moving over an hour and a half away from my original OB and all the fun stuff that I had to do during the move I haven't been back since about 12 weeks, same as you. Also trying to find a new one has not been succesful as the one I wanted was not taking new patients :( and now we may be just sticking with our old one and making the hike out there...



I've felt baby kick many times recently, almost always at least once a night, except tonight. I'm trying not to flip over it though...

My son likes to sit up high and roll over sometimes. Kinda uncomfortable sometimes but nothing major. Maybe your little princess is just making her presence known!

This baby is sooo active compared to how my daughter was. He is always moving all day and all night. Sometimes I just wish he'd give it a break when I'm trying to fall asleep lol. I can actually see his kicks and jabs on the outside now! Lol its so funny to watch my belly dance.



Anyone else's baby super active? I'm 22 weeks.

I'm 24 weeks today and my son's kicks are getting painful at times. My next appointment is Wednesdy. I'm excited!



I've still been walking 1-3 miles 4 days a week even with a 2 1/2 year old and being a full time student. I'm proud of that! My PDS (or SPD) hasn't kicked in yet, and I think the weight I've lost has been helping. I keep telling myself that every pound I DON'T gain will keep me out of pain for a little bit longer.



Not sure if anyone else is experiencing pressure in their cervix-area? My son likes hanging out down low so I'm not sure if he is causing this... Also, with my last pregnancies I remember peeing less in the second trimester as my baby moved up and out, but with this pregnancy and him staying low all the time I still have to pee constantly. How many times a day are you ladies peeing? Sometimes I feel like I have to pee SOOO BAD and I only pee like an ounce. I think I may be peeing 30-40 times a day, but I am drinking a lot of water so it doesn't seem out of the ordinary or anything.

Yeah I've been feeling tons of pressure, the other night it hurt really bad though that I was in tears.
I wish I could go on walks, I hate being on bedrest. Luckily even on bedrest I'm still down 9lbs instead of gaining, I definitely don't want to gain 65 like I did with my daughter.



I drink all day, always have a drink beside me. I say I pee maybe 10-15 times a day. Which that seems like a lot to me since normally I'd pee 4-5 times all day long

This pregnancy is so different from any of my pregnancies I have had. I have always had morning sickness with all of my babies and have also gained alot of weight with them. I am 23 weeks now and I feel I am still small for how far along I am. I cant tell you what my pre pregnancy weight is as I had NO CLUE I was pregnant until I was 18 weeks. I even get told by a lot of people that I am carrying small. Maybe she is just sitting back further than my other babies did. I also see ladies on here saying their babies are kicking like crazy and they can see them kicking on the outside. I cant yet. I can feel her on the inside and its not that hard. I will even lay there trying to see it and nothing yet. My husband has felt her one time on the outside and it was when his leg was laying across my belly. When I put his hand on my belly she will be kicking right under him and he will feel nothing. I have only seen a doctor one time since finding out. My next appt isnt until the 16th. I cant wait to hear her heartbeat again. I can say one thing. I think this pregnancy will go by fast with just finding out and all.

With all of my other babies I have felt it on the outside by now, but with this one nothing really. It is weird. It makes me feel bad cuz I can feel her but the hubby hasnt yet. Except that one time on his leg.

Urg. I feel like if the baby would get off my bladder I could go longer between bathroom visits. It gets really frustrating to have to pee literally every 15 minutes in the evenings, especially when he kicks me right in the bladder some evenings.



I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling pressure. I felt this pressure last time a lot later on in the pregnancy - like the last 10 weeks.



And I wouldn't worry about not getting to exercise. Even though I'm exercising, I am NOT eating as clean as I could. If I have a craving, 90% of the time I get whatever I'm craving. I even drink water all day and then I will have a pop in the evening - so I'm not strictly drinking water only or anything. Since I was down 6 lbs at my last appointment it will be interesting to see what I'm at now. I plan to keep exercising, but I also don't plan to limit myself on what I eat/drink. I say that, but I mean in moderation of course. I really can't eat a lot at a time so if I want brownie and ice cream I will have my SO bring my that from Chili's where he works and I will eat about half and then put the rest in the fridge for the next day. :o

22weeks YAY! Hve to say though having a posterior placenta means I can feel and see every kick with DD it wasn't this strong until 30ish weeks. I'm still under my pre pregnancy weight and hope to stay this weight or around this weight for the rest of the pregnancy. We haven't told family the sex of this baby yet and don't plan on telling them until he is born(SO is finding it hard keeping it a secret).

So I've recently started having BH contractions. Not common, I've only felt it twice in the past 2 weeks. Anyone else noticing them yet?

I have not really had any... but I never have with my other children either so I am not surprised... I never even felt contractions at all even when I was having them until very far into labor... either that or I just never really paid attention haha...



I have an appt. today at 23 weeks and hopefully they will schedule our "20" week ultrasound. We are still dead set on not finding out the gender. I just want to see baby and make sure all is well... if they don't do one we are going to do our 3d/4d in about a month so we will get to see baby then. I am also asking about heartburn meds today because I have it 24/7 and can't stand it any longer!!!
