2nd Trimester

Pregnancy likes / dislikes...

Yes, I know it's a miracle and I am blessed. But honestly there are certain things about pregnancy I am not too fond of.

Likes:
Feeling movement and kicking
My amazing hair
My skin is flawless

Dislikes:
It's gross- but the discharge I could live without
My body temperature- sweating like a pig constantly
Round ligament pain

How about you?

Re: Pregnancy likes / dislikes...

  • Funnily enough I would list exactly the same things as you have. Happy with my lovely hair, but I'm sick of feeling tropical all the time. I was out shopping on Saturday and everyone around me was wearing winter coats, scarves and gloves. I was wearing a thin shirt over a tank and I was still warm.

    I am an absolute furnace

  • Even though this pregnancy did not come easy, there's a big difference between discomfort and wishing a pregnancy away. Even though some symptoms make me miserable, I wouldn't ever wish to not be pregnant, so I try to allow myself time to whine about feeling bad :)

    Likes:
    feeling baby! the absolute best
    knowing what a miracle we will be experiencing in a few short months
    thicker hair and nails
    getting special treatment (ie doors held open) because I'm pregnant

  • Don't really have any likes yet, lol.  

    I haven't noticed any better hair, nails, or skin.  
    Haven't felt baby move yet.
    Not getting special treatment yet.

    But I'm only 18 weeks!  I'm sure I'll start at least getting baby movement shortly.

    The dislikes... ugh.  Lol.  The sweating, the discomfort of sleeping, the increased acne, the round ligament pain, the nausea, the changing food tastes, the emotional bouts, the anxiety, heart palpitations, constipation, and back ache.

    When does pregnancy become a magical time?  LOL

    Likes: Not been sick at all during pregnancy, awesome! Craving for anything food. Comfort that my baby is kicking and strong. I smile all the time. Having my first baby with my husband. Summer baby! Dislike: Can be emotional for things that are not a big deal. Sleeping on my side and peeing a lot which disrupts my sleep. Annoying cramping and round ligament pain. Feeling tired at odd times. Mild Acne.
  • This is my second baby.... and the pregnancy is completely different. I felt awesome the first time. This time I will say I feel much more exhausted and run down.... maybe that has to do with the 3 yr old!
  • Likes: So far this has been an easy pregnancy, other than some nausea first tri, everything has been good.  Even though I'm the one who's pregnant, my husband is the one who's nesting, it is just too cute how he wants everything done before the baby is here.  Which the way he's been, means end of January despite her not to arrive until end of May.  Just love how excited he is, this is our first.

    Dislikes:  I really miss having a good night sleep.  I'm a light sleeper to begin with, add bathroom visits, cat visits, high winds with all these storms, work on my mind, pretty much anything could wake me does and then I'm awake for a long while after that.

  • Likes: the non-stop movement; the way DS will wave to or pat my belly; thicker hair and great skin; feeling energized; still being able to run; how much more thoughtful DH has been;

    Dislikes: my boobs. I am a small girl with small boobs (32a on a good day) and they're already filling a 34b, sigh. I wish I was one of the lucky ones who's boobs didn't get bigger until their milk came in. :/. I don't have a bump yet, ad these girls look ridiculous on me.

  • Likes: thick hair and nails. My nails have never been able to grow. They are so long now. Knowing I have a little miracle growing inside of me. Not having to stress about dieting. (Which does not mean I am pigging out; just not dieting) husband stepping up with the chores. Speaking of husband... I think pregnancy has given him a special glow too. :\"> oh... And why hasn't anyone mentioned the boobs. They are HUGE!!! I love them.


    Dislikes: ugh. Nausea. Can barely brush my teeth because I gag. Strong sense of smell. I smell everyone's breath... I know who has raw meat breath and who has shit breath from 3 ft away. I smell things no one smells. And it's driving me mad. Gas. Too much info but I am farting like a machine. Headaches since ringing in the long anticipated 2nd trimester. Worst thing yet. And... Acne. I had beautiful skin and was looking forward to the pregnancy glow but got stick with zits. Yay.

    All the dislikes are worth it of course
  • Likes:
    - Hair looks great

    - Acne - on my face, my chest, my arms, my shoulders, my back. Seriously?!
    - Not being able to indulge in a glass of wine or bottle of beer completely guilt-free
    - Peeing. All. The. Time.

    Absolutely everything else about pregnancy.


    I suppose I make a pretty shitty pregnant lady.

    This exactly....
    I have had the worse nausea and all day sickness. The simple thought of food makes me want to vomit on most days.
    It's been so bad that I am honestly considering only having one baby for the first time in my life... I honestly can't imagine being this sick again... I'm 14 weeks today and am worried about my drs appt on Wednesday. I've easily lost another 4 lbs (15 total) and really don't wanna get yelled at :(

  • Some babies are harder to feel than others, but at 18 weeks you should be able to feel some movement/ push back if you press against the lower abdomen. (about an inch below your belly button) I'm 18 and a half weeks and finally figured out my little one doesn't want to move much or if he is he just is doing so quietly. If I press against him he'll press back ever so slightly. 
  • Likes:
    Awesome hair
    Special treatment
    The fact that I basically made a couple new friends because we just happen to be pregnant at the same time
    The baby moving
    The awesome re-shaping my body has done since getting prego... thinner arms and legs, firmer backside, gigantic boobs.

    Dislikes:
    Terrible all day sickness in the first tri
    A continuing, violent aversion for bananas (one of my favorite fruits)
    Movement when I'm attempting to sleep
    the back pain from the gigantic boobs.

  • Likes: movements.
    Prepping for the arrival

    Not being able to do anything real exciting since it's unsafe for pregnancy.
    Morning sickness
    Lack of energy
    Depression

    Yes... because having some dislikes about pregnancy...like nausea and consuming alcohol are the same thing.

    I can have an opinion- just like everyone else on this site. Funny- you look at the loss board and you see women that struggle and would give anything.....ANYTHING for a healthy pregnancy and baby; including myself. I did everyhing right and I get to terminate my pregnancy at 27 weeks tomorrow- so go ahead and enjoy your glass of wine.

    You need to stop.  No one here would want to be in  your shoes.  What you are going through is terrible and anyone with a heart is hurting for you.  

    You are coming back to these posts after the fact and throwing it in everyone's face and lashing out.  When you make statements that people who have an occasional glass of wine (in my case with my doctor's okay and blessing) and say that they all "have issues" you are going to get called out for it.  You can choose for yourself what you are comfortable with, but you have no business judging others and behaving in a holier than thou manner.  It's not going to go over well. 

    Please take care of yourself.

    This.  We are sad for your loss.  Truly we are. 

    However, your loss is not connected, in any way, to your judgemental, holier-than-thou words on the other thread.  Your loss has happened after you judged women who dared have a glass of wine (with their doctors' blessings, no less).  To come back here and try to make us feel guilty for calling you out is a pretty shitty thing to do.

    Like:
    Feeling the babies move
    Getting ready for them
    The ultrasounds (carrying twins so they do an ultrasound every month... it's amazing seeing how much they grow each time!)
    Chuckling at our 3yo's confusion about what's going on and her occasional insistence that I'm carrying a variety of animals as well. Yesterday, we were expecting triplets because one was a "little baby yap yap doggie"

    Dislikes:
    Tired. Lots of tired.
    Waking up all the time to go to the bathroom
    DD chose this as the perfect timing to break her arm... which keeps life interesting

  • So happy you have been able to get your little one to respobd to you. I do want to say that not everyone will be able to feel movement at this point or any point in their pregnancy. Where the placenta attached, the size of the mother and how the baby is positioned can all be reasons you will or will not feel movement. This type of forum is a great reasource but telling people they should be doing or feeling something can cause anxiety to those not experiencing the same thing, especially FTM.
    ready-or-not
  • I thoroughly enjoy being pregnant, although I suppose there are some things that are not so fun.

    First, A few LOVES...
    -Feeling the baby's movement
    -My 5 year old DD being very affectionate with my bump and making baby comments in general (3 yr old DS isn't there..yet!)
    -splurging on sweets
    -feeling very deserving and not so guilty of naps


    Dislike...
    -waking up to pee
    -not staying hydrated enough
    -sciatic nerve pain
    -getting weighed in at doc appts
