Nothing so far. Ask me if I can't have this baby naturally and end up being induced at 42 weeks.
*disclaimer: I did not have bad m/s...the aches and pains I can deal with, esp. with help from tylenol and my low-dose narcotic when the migraines hid bad. But the nausea, I cannot deal with. I would love to have a natural birth, but if I am sick to my stomach during contractions, I will cave fast...
Haha: moving back in with Mom to save money. I will NOT do it again!
The pregnancy itself has been terrific, though!
My answer is also nothing.
I've already had one child and it went fine. This one has been easy so far too.
mandolynn81:18 horrible weeks of morning sickness.
This...I wouldn't wish morning sickness on my worst enemy. Oh and having recurrent kidney stones.
Paranoia associated with having high BP and waiting for it to turn into Pre-E.
Possibly labor, but we'll have to wait and see on that one!
Heartburn sucks. Being diagnosed with PUPPs again (I've heard that you cannot get it after the first pregnancy--so I'm good there)
This. This has been the one awful thing about my pregnancy.
If you asked me this during my 1st trimester, I would have said my subchorionic hematoma. I had a blood clot in my uterus. For most women who have it, it just causes a little bleeding or they never notice it. In my case, I bled for 3 1/2 weeks and had a ton of nasty clots. Every time I went to the bathroom, it was like a nightmare relived. I still shutter when I think of all that blood I would see in the bowl and the clots. It was a 3 1/2 week m/c scare with the doctors just saying we had to "wait and see."
Back when this was happening, I said to DH how I don't know if I could go through that again. Fortunately, the clot went away and things have been great since then. I just worry because they say that women who get subchorionic hematomas are more likely to get them with future pregnancies. I guess if it happened again I would know what to expect but it was just so scary and sent me into a mini-depression.
I know it will all be worth it in the end so even with that, I would say I would do it again.
Nothing really. I know all of my annoying symptoms are only temporary. I'm loving being pregnant.
But if I were to complain, I'd say the backne that's cropped up preveting me from wearing tank tops, the constant peeing and bouncing on my cervix. Not fun, but it's managable.
First it would have been the horrible morning sickness in 1st trimester...but I was so wrong thinking that was the worst it could get.......
Then it would have been the complications so far, weekly doc visits, so many transvaginal U/S that I quit couting them months ago, the constant pressure and cramping, the meds that make me sick, the constant worry about going into PTL, the fact that I haven't worked since March b/c of complications, the contractions and severe cervical pain that makes me cry daily....
most recently it's the strict bedrest I am on (previously I was on modified).
This baby may be an only child although I have always wanted 2 kids. I feel kind of selfish saying that but I am so frustrated and tired and in pain.

My Ovulation Chart
I've had a very easy pregnancy so far, with only a few complaints cropping up the last few weeks but nothing major or worrisome.
So having said that, nothing at this point...I haven't made it through L&D yet though...
I've had a relatively easy pregnancy so I don't think anything would make me think twice about having a second child. However, I did not enjoy 1st tri fatigue or 3rd tri feet that are killing me!
i have had nothing that bad to make me not want to do it again, but my bp is a slight concern and I hate the worrying about that...
i have the typical hb, swelling, dry heaves, insomnia...but small prices to pay to get a healthy baby in the end!! Hopefully my bp holds out at least another 3w so he can keep cooking!!
