Question for those of you who are on your 2nd or more pregnancy... the last few days I've had horrible pains in my back and left butt cheek. I thought maybe the baby is on my sciatic nerve but everything I've read says to expect that much later than 22 weeks. Is the baby big enough to pinch my sciatic nerve at this point or should I assume the problem is something else and make an appointment for a chiroprator?
Happy to report that by week 23, the pain was gone...Still don't know if she was sitting on something, or if it was another type of pain, but glad it's gone! I'm also finally looking pregnant... I still look just "heavy" in a few of my shirts, but in the majority of them, I'm showing baby belly... I picked up an adorable maternity shirt to wear with black slacks to our special Valentine's Day dinner. Last one without a baby Enjoy your VDay everyone!
Hi, I wanted to find other women for support. I am due June 19 with boy #4. I am married, but my husband left me, for the 2nd time this year, early February. I am working part-time and taking care of our boys, 15, 6, and 3 without support financially or emotional from my husband. I am 41 and find myself feeling a little better (emotionally) yet still suffer from migraine headaches. I wanted to know if there are other married (or not) women out there in similar situation.
aniri - Yay for boys! I have an almost 3 yr old little guy, and he's a honey. Cuddly, hilarious, and not exceedingly naughty...I wouldn't mind having another like him.
kare.bear - glad to hear your weird pains are over! I moved too many boxes yesterday and my back is protesting. To be expected.
tarewoodley - Is your husband contributing financially? He should be, as well as taking care of the boys sometimes too. I can't imagine what you are going through right now. Do you have a support base at church? Is there anywhere locally that you could find such a group?
WhooHOO! Hit the 6 month mark...Now I'm just feeling like I've been pregnant forever and will be pregnant forever...
I had to laugh, made a date to see an old friend tonight...Haven't hung out with her for over a month and wasn't showing much then... She asked me how adventerous I felt - like should we go skiiing or something???!!! Now, last month I may have had the energy to do it, but still would NOT have in case I were to fall, but this month - take one look at me and ANYONE could tell, I am NOT going skiiing....LOL... I had to tell her that a little less adventerous activity like dinner and a movie would have to suffice
Anyone else get some ridiculous suggestions for activities while pregnant?
Today I reached 6 months (24 weeks) mark! I considered it as a "golden month" of pregnancy,because everybody can see that you are expecting and you are not too big and exsausted like at the end.So far so good. My baby boy is very active I can feel it and I like it.
hi all....yay i found you.
anyway, i am due june 7th with #2, seperated by 8 years! this one is a boy!!
i had a dr appt today and now i will start going every 2 weeks, wow, that came quick.
congrats to you all.
Welcome, Coleysmommy! I'm just a couple of weeks behind you with my first. For the most part, I've been feeling great, but today my whole body is sore like I've just run a marathon... Perhaps I did after the dreams I had last night
I had a friend's husband ask if I wanted to participate in a bike ride across the state in July. HAHAHAHA! I reminded him that I would have a 1-month old baby, and that my husband wouldn't even be allowed back in our bedroom yet!
I'm hoping he was thinking that I could drive the relief van, but still. With a newborn?!
lyzjost: I can just see you pedeling across the state with a huge baby carrier being pulled behind...Maybe he wanted you to fill the extra corners with snacks, water, and the tent...after all, how much space can a newborn take? LOL!!!
