...don't ever accidentally mark an email from pg.org as spam. Your pg.org account gets blocked, for security reasons. It was just a few days, but seemed like forever, not being able to log in! I was just trying to stop all the viagra and mortgage refi email offers... whoops I should pay more attention next time!
I wanted to respond to so much, but between that & this busy week, I probably won't be able to get around to it.
I do have an OB appt tomorrow, after a growth ultrasound (and to confirm, yet again, Elijah doesn't need a name change because of gender difference, each time was "90% sure it's a boy).
On the agenda to discuss with doctor: lots more pelvic floor pressure, BH contractions very frequent & borderline painful, a few RLP that got me scared because they were so intense for several minutes, hot flashes (although my temp is under 97 degrees when this happens), I think I have sciatica, and I don't like my experience with their surgery scheduling department. All of this is very new to this pregnancy. Previously, I had a cervix of steel, never had BH that I could really feel, and any pain was dull and generalized.
Here's hoping "it's all the typical pregnancy stuff"... although I'd love a magic wand to fix it all. The daytime exhaustion then night time insomnia is not my fave.
I have heard from a few people that the 3rd pregnancy is suppose to be "Different" well I can surely say I believe it. I know no 2 pregnancies are the same but this pregnancy has been completely different then my previous 2. I know exactly what you mean I have never felt half of the things I am feeling this time. I hope your appt goes well & you are able to get answers.
I do not receive emails from Pregnancy.org so glad I don't have that to worry about
Ha I have almost all those symptoms too. Lately I've been having a lot of pressure down there and I swear at times it shoots a stinging feeling all the way up to my shoulder! But I think that is from DS dancing on my cervix lol. Yesterday I doubled over from the sharp unexpected pain as I was walking and DH was like "Contraction?" and I laughed and said no, someone was trying to get out LOL!
I hope your appt goes well. And hope Elijah is still a boy! Lol.

KUP on your appt. tomorrow.
I agree that the 3rd time around is so different. This time I have very few things in common with my last 2 pregnancies. Two nights ago I was telling my husband that it must be my body geting older as to why things are less comfortable this time. Also I highly recommend seeing a chiropractor for your sciatic stuff. Never did with my last 2 but I have been seeing one this time and it is a world of difference.
