I am 17 weeks and 1 day. This is my first pregnancy and I am EXHAUSTED! I feel like the baby is draining the life out of me, I can't sleep well, my breathing is horrible, and it takes everything I have to move. Does anyone have any helpful tips to get through this? I thought the 2nd trimester was supposed to be a breeze.

I am 16 weeks 2 days and this is my first pregnancy. I feel the baby move at times but, I have not gained any weight and have no bump. I am concerned with this, as I have lost 15 pounds. Anyone else have this issue?

I'm 17 weeks& 2days. This is my first baby, I feel the baby move alot but, also started feeling baby move really early. I've had some discomfort in my lower back and under my ribs. It's hard to get comfortable to sleep cause i feel my baby laying in my back but feel ok for now. Also have questions is it possible for the baby to lay on my nerves cause some of the time my legs will go to sleep or one of my arms? Also I know baby is growing fast but sometimes I won't be hungry and my belly will be rumbling for food so I some times force myself to eat cause I don't want baby to go hungry? Is that bad?

I'm 17 weeks pregnant, and it is my first child. I am having so many problems with this baby. I have the hurting on the left side. I don't know what to do. All I really wanted to do was go to sleep at night, but I can't sleep. I'm very tired. I don't understand what I can do. I'm having problems with my uterus. I'm also having problems with my the lower part of my back. I don't know what else to do or who I can talk to. I am very scared with this pregnancy because I've been having problems every since I found out I was pregnant, and is not really normal because with my last 3 pregnancies, I was just fine. I'm at all of my baby at 36 weeks. I don't know if I'm going to have this baby early enough. Someone please give me some answers.

I'm 17 weeks and 4 days. This is my first pregnancy. I feel very uncomfortable. I don't know what a baby kick it supposed to feel like. So, I don't really know. I haven't felt the baby move, or if I did I didn't know. I have little crampy feelings. I guess that's the baby. When will the pain stop?

I'm 17 weeks and 5 days pregnant with my second bundle. Baby moves when he/she wants to. I feel kicks and punches. It feels like a karate session at times. I can't wait to meet my little munchkin!

I am 17 weeks and 5 days. I haven't felt my baby move either. I get very paranoid, and keep thinking something is wrong. I have my appointment next week with my gynecologist. I can't wait to hear my baby's heart beat. I'm sure, since we saw the first time. We are just getting worried, and hope everything will be okay.

I am 17weeks and 5days pregnant with my second baby. I don't feel my baby moving! Is that normal? Because I've heard I should be feeling the baby moving right now.
