I thought I wasn't having many symptoms to begin with but man was I wrong. In my first trimester, I was a bit nauseaous but no throwing up. and I was tired alot. Second trimester I felt the heartburn and indigestion constantly. And now on the third trimester I feel heartburn, indigestion,tired all the time, hard to breathe, depressed about my weight, pressure in my pelvic area, braxton hicks, and my back hurts like ahhhhh!So I think Im getting to feel a little of everything.

About six weeks in I got morning sickness. Like, have to be medicated and I still felt like crap, morning sickness. I have retained that through the ENTIRE pregnancy, I still get sick when I eat...or if I don't eat. My hoo-hah hurts, doc says I have varicose veins down there, but she hasn't looked so that's not a certainty I guess. Bending over makes me sound like a beached whale. Getting up off the couch is always good for a laugh. I have indigestion and heartburn like crazy.
Everyone says it's all worth it. Smile

Yes, Jessica wins an award for longest period of morning sickness!! Haha.

I had morning sickness from about 5.5 weeks to 15 weeks. 2nd trimester was pretty awesome until about 22 weeks when I started having this pelvic pain, which I still have. Apparently its called SPD. I have to wear a support belt around my belly all day. It also affects my tailbone and feels like my hips are coming out of socket when I walk. And on occasion I get a burning pain in my inner thighs. This is the reason for the chiropractor this week.

Other than that, I have had some heartburn, but surprisingly it hasn't been as horrible as I imagined it to be. I have been lucky to not be constipated this pregnancy, a lot of my friends complained about that.

I am really interested in this SPD. What is it?? I have the SAME symptoms you just described! everyday it hurts to walk, it feels like every thing down there is bruised or broken, if i sit for even a short amount of time getting up HURTS my pelvic region ( SO finds if kinda funny when I say my Puss hurts lol) but man oh man it's not fun it's mostly on my right side pelvic bone to my inner thigh bone i don't know if it's just regular pregnancy pains but it sucks to put on pants lifting my legs like that !

Sorry you are in pain too. My midwife explained that my body is producing too much of the hormone called relaxin and so my joints are separating from each other causing ligaments to hurt and what not. Here is the wiki page for it....

I had m/s from 5-14ish weeks I believe. Now sometimes I just feel blah like when I eat too much sweets (or sometimes any sweets at all) or sometimes anything I eat. It's annoying and I don't remember it being this bad w/ my other babies.
Other than just feeling huge and not being able to get through tight spots or bend down easily, I'm feeling okay still. My back doesn't hurt too much, I don't have too many weird pains or anything. Honestly most of the time when I'm walking around other than getting winded more easily I don't really "feel" pregnant.
