lost weight!

I have lost weight since my last checkup. I saw the endo for my thyroid check yesterday and I was down three pounds. I know it's not that much, especially since I'm 30 pounds overweight to begin with, but it seems counterproductive to me. And I guess I just feel like I'm not really pregnant even. Here I am, exactly three months, and nothing is happening lol. No firmness starting in my low abdomen and no weight gain. Pregnancy is so fricking slow. I'm definitely going to have to do it a second time so that I can enjoy the bump and the movements earlier on like some of you ladies! Also I am calling myself in the second tri after tomorrow, even though I keep seeing places that say the second tri doesn't start until week 13 ENDS not begins.

I completely agree on how slow the 1st trimester goes. I feel like it has taken forever. This is #3 and it still feels the same. I would tell you to start saying you are in the 2nd trimester even today. Since were measuring ahead on your last U/S you are probably there anyways. Wink I lost weight from my last apt too! I was up 10lb and now back to my pp weight. The doctor did not even say anything about it. I actually feel better; I think it was a lot of water weight if that makes any sense.

Yes it could just be bloat finally coming off. Though my pants are not any looser. I'm excited because I've gotten telling the most important people out of the way and now that my miscarriage risk is going to be a lot less, I feel comfortable talking about it on facebook finally! I may even tell some of the extended family at Easter, who knows. I think I will be a lot less crabby when my bump comes out of hiding and especially when I get the big ultrasound and find out who is inside my tummy so I can start shopping!

BAH! I have no clue what frickin' trimester I'm in. My ticker says 2nd starts tomorrow but most websites I find say 2nd tri starts at end of week 13. It's kind of bugging me even though it shouldn't matter. It should only matter that after 12 weeks, miscarriage risk goes down and placenta takes over and baby's organs are all developed. But geez, can't there be a straight answer for trimesters?

I think if you were a little overweight to begin with then weight loss during the first half is pretty common and totally not something to worry about.

I know this is going to sound like a tall order, but try to enjoy it! I know you aren't feeling "pregnant" like you want to, but in a few months you'll be going crazy wanting to feel normal again! A lot of women fall into this trap (including myself at times!) we want it to go faster and we want to get to the next part and then, before we know it, it will be all over. Then we want it back!

My deal is I don't feel normal. I feel moody and irritable and sick and I just want to have some of the fun parts of pregnancy to go along with this crap!
