I feel like I haven't slept in days and keep getting this sharp pain in my ribs on the right side.

Don't ya love it? :). It's hormones... I was so achey and all over the place with my emotions. I've been exhausted since the beginning too. You might want to get off your feet more..take some healthy snacks.

I'm with you. I feel like I was given a shot of too-tired-to-do-anything the day I got my BFP. I've read that pregnancy is harder for us not-so-spring-chickens, and it's true. Building a baby is exhausting work, and at 41, my body is not as awesome at accomplishing this as it was in my 20s (I had Jake, our last, moments before I turned 30).

And you know, I'm reading about how when you hit the 2nd trimester, it's much easier, you get your energy back, and it's the honeymoon phase of the pregnancy. .

NOT!! I have yet to feel that feeling where I've hit my stride, where it's all lovely and easy and I'm just glowing and floating about effortlessly. Every week it's a new pain or ache. And don't get me started on my humor. There are days I wonder how I even have three children, nevermind working on a 4th. Yesterday was a good one. I was irritated at everyone and everything for one reason or another.

The best news is that no one is pregnant forever. It's 40 or so weeks. So, you're in your 2nd trimester -- you'll have that baby before you know it, and all of this will be some fleeting dream, and it will all have been worth it. That's what gets me through the tough stuff. :)

Hang in there!

Mom to Libby/17, William/12, and Jacob/8

Our bodies must be in sync..I am due in September as well. This entire pregnancy I have been so crampy and UGH exhaused. I went for my ultrasound the other day and the tech said oh you are having alot of BH contractions. I NEVER had these with my other pregnancy so I realized this entire pregnancy I have just been having them...hence the cramps.

I am fat, I can't breathe and I wake up like 12 times a night to pee. This is miserable...but as someone pointed out. TEMPORARY thank goodness.

The only thing I am worried about now is...what cerntury will it be before I get a good nights sleep again. lol
