Second Trimester Chat August
34
Tue, 08-18-2009 - 1:55pm

Here is the place to talk about things specifically related to the second trimester:)

There is still going to be a general pregnancy chat so no one should feel left out or anything like that- just thought this would help with the huge amount of posts in one thread, which can be overwhelming.

Hello ladies!


So Mari, you're next for the big reveal and then Cassie, right? Eek - can't wait to find out what you're both having!! I predict girl for Mari and boy for Cassie. Although I was totally off when I guessed for Lora and Sandy. :-P


Ashley - I'm noticing a big difference (for the better) in my energy levels as well. Last night I even cooked dinner, which I haven't done in days!


Noel - How does the support belt work? Do you recommend it for everyone? I too noticed a difference between your last two belly pics - how exciting!!

Ashley - Welcome to the 2T!! So glad you're feeling better now. Keep in mind you may still wear out more easily than before PG. Sefinitely get your exercise, it'll help a LOT with delivery! If you have much to do with the nursery, I'd go ahead & start now, while you have good energy. The 3T can be very draining, so the more you get done before then, the better.


Christine - the support belt is a wide elastic band with velcro on the front. Once you fasten that, there's a second elastic band that only goes part way around & velcroes onto the first elastic band to give you the right amount of support.It's not comfortable for all of the time, but helps when you're more active & need a little extra help holding the belly up. I didn't have one with my first PG, but can't remember if I needed it. I have definitely enjoyed having it with the others. You can find them easily, so if you start feeling belly muscle strain you can pick one up down the line.


AFM - I wore myself out today playing at the park with the kids + an extra friend along with us. I must not nap, though! I'm trying to get myself going to bed earlier & if I nap I definitely won't. Last night I got to bed half an hour earlier.... maybe another half hour earlier tonight? I hope. I've just been too sleep deprived. That's why I wind up taking such long naps every so often.

Hi Ladies!


Sorry I have been MIA. I have kept up on reading but with my parents here I have not had time to really post.


My parents did leave this morning. Which I took alot harder then I thought I would. I really miss my mom, even more so with all the baby stuff coming up. I gave them both a hug and when they walked out of the house I faught back tears... which didn't last long because DH came to give me a hug and I just lost it. My mom and I are really close and being 1200 miles apart and only getting to really see each other once a year is killing me. I know she will be back when the baby is born or before if I want but I really wish they were closer. It doesn't help that it feels like DH family wants nothing to do with me and they are only 350 miles.


While they were here we went to Virgina City, and a couple others around the area. They are old mountain towns that are being kept alive through history. We had a good timing getting out of town though I Was awake over 24 hours that first day after getting off work at 8am. We went up and spent the night then worked out way back to out place. Mom and I went shopping the next day and I got some really good deals on some clothes. I finally broke down and went into MotherHood Maternity and got two nice tops. I have to agree with Sandy though, what is the deal with all the bottoms being so darn tight in the upper leg? I have on pair of jeans I can wear right now and every pair of maternity jeans I tried on were so darn tight in the leg I couldn't get them on. Very frustrating.


DH also got home which has been wonderful. I really missed him, which I always do when we are apart. He has a couple more weeks before classes start so he will be mostly hanging around the house. His birthday is tomorrow and I have not gotten him anything. I asked him what he wanted and he just said me. Though he did get a pretty big surprise yesterday when my parents got us a 37 inch flat screen tv. It was part anniversary part Matt's birthday. We had an old 19 inch analog that we have been using. We don't even have cable, though we might break down and see what basic will cost with this new TV.


Sorry that was so long. Just a short recap on what I have been up to. I have to go back to work tonight. I'm not really in the mood to, actually a lil scared of what has happened the last three nights while I have been gone. Anywho, I'll stop typing now and go see what else is going on in the new board!
