3rd Pregnancy..and very different

I'll have 4 wks left this Saturday and time is ticking very slow for me.

My 3rd trimester has been the worst for me. I have 2 girls now and while pregnant with them, I experienced little to no complication or discomforts. Actually, the books I read about what to expect, were the total opposite for me. 6 years later, finally pregnant with a boy....all the books that I couldn't relate to exactly what I'm going through now.
I've had terrible pelvic pressure from my 5th month on. This past weekend it was so bad that I couldn't get up and walk. When I visited the Doctor the next day, he really didn't have anything new to say to me about it.
Sleep....forget about it!! I toss and turn about 50 times a night and its very painful each time I move. Laying on either side causes this weird pain underneath my left breast. When I finally sleep, my husband tells me that I've been snoring loud and hard. I've experienced a lot of sleepless nights as well, staying up til 4:30 a.m and having to work at 8.
All in's been hell. My son is definitely making a grand entrance and letting us all know a knew sherriff is coming!
4 weeks seem like a year away and we're all hoping for an early arrival.


Second Time around

Hi there.... I'm 31 weeks pregnant on Baby #2. My son is now 5 years old and I remember feeling absolutely great with his pregnancy. However, the second has been good, if it wasn't for the nausea, the nosebleeds and the breaking out! What's that all about...?

Anyway, after having my ultrasound, we found out we were having a girl, so she's the one giving the attitude! LOL

My fear with my first as well as this one, is if and when my water will break! With my son, I was induced a week early because they thought he may be too big. He was born at 7lbs. 7 oz. which was actually very relieving considering my husband and parents were all 10 pounders.... However, that fear still sits in with this one and along with that, I feel that I'm in denial....

Don't get me wrong, I know I'm pregnant, I know I'm having baby #2, and it's a girl, but I can't believe it's actually happening! and I'm only 9 weeks away! When will it sink in? LOL Does anyone feel that way? I'm happy and excited to see her, but I feel so weird going from one child to two!


Second bundle of joy

I'm in my last trimester of my 2nd child and let me assure all the new mothers out there, the fear is normal but it doesn't ever go away. My first pregnancy I was a total wreck because - oh I don't know - Everything! My baby was the wrong direction, she didn't kick me in one whole day, something might be wrong! Oh - now she kicks all the time, - there must be something wrong. I continuely freaked - what if she doesn't turn around, what if she has something wrong with her, what if I don't make a good mother?
Well, now I am on my second, 8 years later. Yeah, I took some time off before my second, but I can honestly say, I still worry. Not as much, but its there. Can I handle two kids, is she suppose to kick like that, I don't remember my first doing this, what the heck was that? Have faith new mothers, the "insticts" that people tell you will come, they do. But your child doesn't come with an instruction book either, so you get to learn as you go. It's fun, if you just remember to take everything in stride.



Hi I'm 36 year old and this is my first pregnancy. I have many fears about my delivery because the baby is in traverse position and I am 34 weeks pregnant. All the test have been positive but still I'm worried. One of my fears is that the baby has movements almost all the time it look like he never sleep except when I go to bed. Maybe because I am too exhausted to feel his movements. I know that the movements is good to feel them but I don't know if is ok that he moves a lot. Some one can tell me if is ok I'm afraid.



I am 36 years old and this is my first pregnancy. As you can imagine, all the fears have been present in this pregnancy. Thank God all the tests have been positive, but my fears are still there. Every morning I wake up thinking if my bb is ok, if I went to the pool probably I did something wrong and she could be hurt. I am afraid to tell my husband - he may think that I am getting crazy, but some times I can't sleep only thinking about the well being of my little girl. Any one feel the same?
I am so scared.
