  • OH MY!!! I am SOOOOO tired!!! My mom says that I was this tired with DS but I didn't already have a baby, I wasn't working or going to school, so I just slept all day. I remember being tired, but this is insane, I can't remember things b/c I'm so sleepy! I also have a bad backache, which I remember EARLY with DS, but I don't remember it this bad. I'm so thrilled to be pregnant but I hope the backache gets better, I can manage the exhaustion!
    My other symptom is HUNGER. I'm still nursing DS and he's been teething so he's nursing even more, between him nursing more and me being pregnant, I can't seem to get enough to eat or drink. I feel like a heiffer because I eat everything that's not moving.....haha. I have been nauseated a couple of times in the evening but nothing bad. I'm grateful for all of these early symptoms and just constantly praying we see a healthy heartbeat next week!

  • I totally understand! I ate so much in the 1st trimester and still lost 7 lbs as I was bfing!

    Do you have a chiropractor you can go to? That helps a ton with pg back! Hauling around a baby while being pg is really harsh on your back. I lived at the chiropractors for my 2nd pg and again with this one. I'm hauling around 26 lbs of crawling mischievous baby as I'm sure you are too! Its a lot of being on the floor and bending down, plus hauling all the extra weight of your little love!

Thank you LAB!

  • hmmm, chiropractor might not be a bad idea!!! Yes, John is a BUSY mess at 20 pounds! I didn't even think about all the carrying I do and crawling around on the floor.....hmmmm. Might call my mom's chiropractor!

  • I've been pretty tired lately too and I remeber that from the 1st time around as well. But, I can't take naps whenever I want this time, lol! And yesterday I felt famished! I don't know if it was b/c I started the day with a small breakfast or what, but man....I was hungry all day. I ate a more substantial breakfast today, so we'll see how the rest of the day goes.

    The only other thing so far that is different than the 1st time is headaches. The first time around, it was like being pregnant blocked whatever it is that causes headaches, but I've already had 2-3 heaches this past week. Nothing too bad, but definitly different than last time.
Thank you MrsS1stbaby!

  • I hear ya! I was also very tired and very hungry in the beginning. Then the tiredness went away and the hunger stuck around. Now that I have entered the third trimester I find myself being very tired again and well still hungry!
Thank you nisey79!
