I can't wait to be able to eat garlicy/Italian food again. Ugh. The thought of the homemade spaghetti sauce I made still brings to the back of my throat. YUCK!

That is so tough! I get bad heartburn but it's nothing like I had with DD. I still keep smoothie Tums on hand to be safe, but I don't require it in the bathroom, kitchen, purse and vehicles like with DD.
My biggest gripe is these progesterone shots in that my body reacts to them. It wasn't an issue for the first month, but after that the shot area will get raised and itches like crazy. It's usually just on the side of my hip which is okay it's just a pain. My other gripe is my lack of flexibility! I don't think I'm really "bigger" with this pregnancy but my bump gets in the way so much more then I remember with DD.
I'm tired of being moody. DH and I laugh about it... but I'm really being a total jerk to him and I just can't help it. Also, no DTD over here... and he's not a big "belly rubbing" person, so I'm feeling a total lack of intimacy. I'm ready to get that back.

well seeing as I am on bed rest my gripe is that..can't wait to not be on bedrest lol. Heartburn has also been 10 million times worse than with ds...
Marie- I just made DH make me some homemade speghetti sauce the other night! I coudln't stop thinking about it all day. That's funny that it's one of your aversions. It gave me killer heartburn! My biggest aversion is to shellfish or other types of fish. I normally love all fish and have access to really fresh seafood because of where we live so it's kind of a bummer not to ever eat it now. It just really grosses me out though!
I think my biggest gripe is just feeling run down and weak. I was anemic at my last appointment and I go back to take the 3 hour diabetes test on Wednesday because I failed the 1 hour test. I am bummed about that. I hope I pass or else I won't be allowed to deliver at the birth center. I will have to deliver at the hospital which is fine, but I really, really want to do it at the birth center. It's got huge birthing tubs, nice lighting, all these relaxation things to use to help you get thru labor, etc. It would just be ideal to do it there and stupid diabetes might jepordize that.
Ugh, pregnancy can be so hard!
Kristy, I can relate to the moodiness thing. I'm super irritable and emotional. We had a situation with my son at school and while I was talking to the vice principal, I was sobbing like a blubbering idiot! Ugh! I just couldn't control it. I feel so dumb!
I think my biggest gripe right now is the weight gain and not being able to exercise as much as I used to. I have basically just given in to all of my pregnancy cravings and I'm really feeling the gain in my legs, hips and face. Yuck. And then I'm not working out as hard as I would like to because I'm just tired and really busy and working out hard just makes me more and more tired. Plus the cramping in my legs is worse when I work out hard so I haven't really been doing anything. I can't wait to have my body back! I want to get back to running and jumping and lifting heavy weights!!
That I sat down tonight and didn't feel the baby move ( although I felt the baby move earlier) so I vacuumed and sat down and saw the baby make one good move and I started bawling. Normally I know the baby won't always move but gee wiz. Because of how crazy this baby is I worry about her getting all tangled up or something happening these last few weeks.
i needed to come back and add one... lack of sleep! I am already having a very hard time sleeping..constant discomfort..baby is awake at all hours of the night..heartburn makes it difficult to sleep in certain positions.
