Well my boobs are killing me, getting lots of headaches, my siatic nerve is pinching alot. I feel like i'm already 5 months pregnant.I only get nausuia if I get hungry and OMG the gas it's terrible LOL, I get a little tired throughout the day chasing after a 10 month old. Other than that I feel great, ready to start enjoying my second trimester.

Nausea, nausea, nausea. It's like a constant companion. The vomiting is almost done, but I still get it a couple times a week. Lots of leg pain, stomach pain, and lower back pain.

I've had next to no nausea this pregnancy which has been a god send! I dont think I would have been pleasant to live with feeling sick and chasing around our now 7 month old daughter lol! I seem to be drinking a lot of iced tea, black tea etc, because milk in my tea turns my stomach now! :( I also cant eat red meat! Chicken is fine but as soon as someone tries to feed me red meat, especially mince or steak, I feel queasy! I can barely stand cooking it for my Hubby.

I am currently breast feeding my 6month old and I tell you I now know why you don't fall preg while breast feeding.. It kills everytime she feeds. Almost as bad as when you first start feeding and you have to peel your boob from your bra. Can't get enough orange juice and now can't stand the thought of coffee, nuts or garlic. And my mother in law keeps insisting on going out to Italian restaurants...Grrr.......The smells :(

Only 14 1/2 weeks along now, but the weird cravings have already started. Not sure if this is unusual as this is my first pregnancy. :) Black licorice and root beer taste wonderful but are 2 of my least favorite things normally! And some of my favorites, like Mexican food, make me shudder....SADNESS!! Also have a very strong libido, which my husband is enjoying. lol (He made me show him in the baby books where it said sex wouldn't hurt the baby, which I appreciated but also laughed at.) Still kind of small for traditional maternity clothes.....taking advantage of the cute stretchy cotton dresses from Old Navy!! FINALLY getting over the initial fatigue...thank goodness!! Anybody else dealing with PAINFUL gas in your abdomen?? I had my knees buckle one day as I was getting off of the couch because the pain was so intense!!! Started paying VERY close attention to the amount of air I took in while eating and drinking and it seems to have done the trick....never realized how much air I swallowed before now. Another BIG difference compared to who I was pre-pregnancy - I used to be the BIGGEST cry baby, but now I'm not. Weird!

This pregnancy is different then my other two children, I flew through them like nothing.. didn't have any symptoms at all really. This time.. extreme tiredness and moodyness.Not much nausea, I guess I am lucky in that area. Besides that , feeling like my boobs are on fire and like I have gained 20 pounds (but I havnt) Having some back aches and headaches. Im starting to look like a alien, I have crazy veins all over the place, popping out all over. Pretty much everywhere besides my face. Does anyone else have crazy veins? lol :)

Ellen, your message made me literally laugh out loud :) Mostly the being horny :) I also am still experiencing that part...and I tell my husband to take advantage of it while he can lol :). I am not due until October 30 so you ladies are a few weeks ahead of me. For me the symptoms that I am experiencing the most are being very tired, which is hard because I have a 16 month old who has more energy than I ever will and doesn't understand why he can't nurse anymore (pregnancy made my milk dry up). I am feeling a little bit of nausea, but nothing compared to my last pregnancy, I was still getting sick the day he was born. What seems to work for me is sipping room temperature gingerale and sucking on lolipops first thing when I wake up, before I even get out of bed. Also, instead of eating normal meals, I have to eat 6 or 7 very small meals, not allowing myself to get to the point of hunger which actually makes the nausea worse. Ebony it sounds like this pregnancy for you is similar to my last pregnancy, although I hope you feel relief much sooner than I did :) Another thing that helped me keep the nausea at bay for me was taking my vitamins only right before bed. But in the end, it is all worth it and that first moment you see that little face, you forget all of the hardships you faced during the last 10 months :) Enjoy your day :)

In a word...nausea! I skated through my first pregnancy but this little one is not playing around...my doctor had to give me something because I was sick from morning to night!
