My Symptoms: Still feeling good. I’ve been having some round ligament pain (During pregnancy, your uterus expands from about the size of an apple to the size of a watermelon. The ligaments that surround and support your uterus and connect it to your groin (collectively called round ligaments) have to stretch and thicken to accommodate that change, and this can hurt a bit, especially in the second trimester. You might have sharp pains in your abdomen or hips, and those pains may increases when you move quickly, go from sitting to standing, cough, or laugh.) and this is no joke. If I stand up to fast, sneeze, or cough, it hits me like a ton of bricks. It woke me up yesterday morning around 4am. It sucks, but if that’s all I have to deal with, then I’m okay with it. It’s still slightly obnoxious, but whatever, I’ll deal!
I’ve also been dealing with emotions – there’s a reason people say pregnant women are over-emotional. It’s because we are. There is a lot I could say on this topic, but what I will say is that its super ironic how everyone knows pregnant women tend to be miserable (in many different ways, shapes, and forms) yet the minute one of us complains, it’s like “well you knew this was going to happen” or “you knew it was going to be this way” – yeah…true…that doesn’t mean it’s easy to deal with, and while I AM amazingly excited and pumped, I’m also really scared and nervous and I over-analyze everything. end rant.
Weight: Not sure…I do know that I feel like a cow, regardless of what the scale says.
