2nd Trimester! + QotD 6.20

Woooo. 14 weeks today. Roxi too! I'm so excited to be in second trimester...

unfortunately I'm still feeling slight nausea (mostly when I haven't eaten enough/ in time) but I haven't thrown up in over a week!!!!

I probably won't relax more in this pregnancy until 24 weeks (my next appointment with a specialist) but I do feel happy that things are going great thus far.

What Symptoms are you currently experiencing? How have they changed over time?

Currently I have crazy crazy exhaustion and every great once in a while I get nauseous. Also still can't have chicken. And my son is super super cuddly and has to hug me, be picked up, loved on, kissed, cuddled with at every available opportunity. (I've always heard that children and dogs become more cuddly/protective when mom is pregnant, but I didn't really believe it til now!)

I was super sick to begin with so all of this is a nice progression from that...I just need some hope that the exhaustion will truly go away eventually.

:woohoo: I'm so excited to be in T2 now too! Yay for not throwing up, Maddie!!

~ Exhaustion kicked in around 10 weeks but is easing now.
~ Nausea is so much better now.

All the other symptoms I had seem to have gone away, but I have developed random aches and pains and a constant very mild headache.

me too!!! my ticker is a day behind, i've just been too lazy to change it...lol.

No symptoms.......never really had any.

i do get a little crampy like by my hips when i get up from a sitting position, but i'm assuming thats just round ligiment pain and things growing and stretching.

My DD also is sooo much more cuddly and wanting mommy's attention.....she also just started to call me mommy instead of ma, mama

This pregnancy's strangest symptom so far is definitely a new one for me. I cannot eat meat. The thought of eating makes me ill. I have been able to eat shrimp so far, but no chicken or beef. Ugh. All I wanted to do with my first pregnancy was eat an entire cow. Now all I want to do is eat a big bowl of fruit or vegetables.

Congrats on being in the second trimester! It's funny how everyone considers the second tri to start at different times. My dr office considers the second tri at 12 weeks.

I am 15w5d. My nausea is mostly gone. I haven't thrown up in a couple weeks. Hopefully I'm done with that. I am having a lot of problems with my heart rate which I get in pregnancy. I've also started having terrible pubic bone pain. I had it with DS also. Apparently I make too much elastic and the joints in my pubic bone get too loose and it hurts!! I'm still peeing a ton, having terrible fatigue in the evenings and a growing belly. I think that's pretty much it.
