freaking out for no reason I hope

Hi Ladies. Reassure me here. I am worried because I have started feeling so good. I am not sick at all anymore, I enjoy eating again and I have more energy. After washing my hair this morning more than usual came out on the brush (still less than before I was pregnant) and now I am freaking out that something is wrong. I do have a belly and I keep feeling some uterus stretching (good signs) but other than that I have not felt any movement in the past few days. I am just worrying for nothing right? The doctor said I would likely feel the baby at 18 weeks so I think it's too early to worry. My next appt is the big u/s on Feb 16 (feels so far away). I am thinking about calling and asking for a quick doppler check so I can stop worrying. What do you think?

I really think it is second trimester! I remember with my first I still felt like crap until about 14 weeks, a little bit better by 15 and much better by 16. My hair is still shedding so I think you're good there. I am happy you're feeling better but sorry you are worrying. I'm sure it is just natural pregnancy progression though! Hugs!

Sounds like you are feeling the joy of 2nd trimester - you start feeling better and aren't so big that you feel like a house! I think you are fine.

I hope I feel that good and energetic by 16 weeks! I think it is normal and you should enjoy your energy before 3rd tri gets here and the tiredness comes back.

Woohoo welcome to the best parts of the 2nd trimester!!! I'm so glad you feeling good. Don't worry about the hair thing. I'm still shedding like crazy!!! Food is getting better for me but energy is still a problem for me! Enjoy it while it lasts!!

I think your ok.
I am feeling the exect same way as you - I keep poking my boobs to see if they are still sore! And i thought the same thing about the hairbrush this morning - too funny!
I just hit 18 weeks and still not feeling consistant movement so it worries me some, but I keep telling myself everything is fine...but its hard though.

Thanks ladies. I got stuck going to an off site meeting today and didn't make it to the bathroom for over 3 hours. In the car on the way back to work I felt a really sharp pain. I think that the baby was jumping on my bladder. It hurt but it was reassuring. I hope I can make it until the big u/s (only 15 days to go, 2 weeks from tomorrow).
