Body like clockwork...

I'll read the weekly updates like "You're in the 2nd trimester now, things you'll probably start to experience is swelling, excess mucous, back pain...etc."

Then it's like the next day, boom. I have all of it.

I just hit the 3rd trimester and it was like the second I was in it... I'm getting up to pee twice a night now and I have to pee like at least every hour or so... I have terrible heartburn in the mornings and I can't lay on my back anymore without being elevated... my back pain got worse and now my hips are hurting from sleeping on my sides...

I guess the 2nd you're out of the honeymoon trimester, you're really out.. it's like clockwork.

Is anyone else experiencing it like that too?

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make my happy when skies are gray.

You'll never know, dear, how much I love you. So please don't take my sunshine away.

  • I think the minute I hit the 3rd trimester it was like BAM heartburn, nausea return and holy exhaustion. On top of already feeling crummy. I didnt have a honeymoon 2nd tri it just feels like 2nd tri and 1st all in one lol

  • Mine was like a light switch. The last day of second trimester I felt great then the morning of the first day in third tri I felt like garbage.

  • I feel like my body got it backwards...second tri was awful.  No lovely glow, no burst of energy, I was sick, sick, sick.  However, I seem to have hit my stride now entering the 3rd.  Not sure how long it will last but I've got energy and feel strong and healthy again.  We'll see how long it lasts :P

  • Guess I'm not the only one then... I never really had the honeymoon part of the 2nd tri, but it was defintely better than my 1st tri.... I didn't have that hot pregnancy sex that everyone was talking about... and now I'm on pelvic rest.. so there goes that!

  • I have to admit most of my 2nd tri was pretty great. Im just barely in 3rd tri, but my hips and my back definitely hurt. I was hoping for a few more good weeks!

  • YES! YES! and YES! I was fine up until last week and then *bam* it hit all at once.

    I have trouble sleeping even with my snoogle- I have to change sides once every 1-2 hours to keep my hips & shoulders from hurting, and at the same time rolling over is a JOKE... I have to roll over facing the bed and pretty much get up on my hands and knees to do so. If I try to roll over facing up it HURTS my abs. I really think I pulled a muscle in my abs while sleeping. I hate sleeping on my side, always been a stomach (ouch) or back (can't breathe) sleeper. I was slouching on the couch last night watching the baby roll around in my stomach and after maybe a minute I realized I was having trouble breathing- same thing happened in the bath tub, I pretty much have to stay sitting straight up.

    Friday I had to buy a bottle of tums to keep in my car because the heart burn started up, ironically it's only when I eat out or eat a really big meal so at least I know how to prevent it.

     And...the back pain is back big time Sad I finished physical therapy in early Dec for sciatica and I was out of the clear pretty much until now-maybe 6 weeks of relief at best.

    Even with all of these discomforts though I feel so blessed to be where I am now. I know so many peopel that are having trouble conceiving or having a really difficult pregnancy. I try to keep my complaining to a minimum and remind myself how blessed I really am to be carrying this healthy baby.

  • Not really, because I have had heartburn and RLP the whole time, and didn't really get that burst of energy I was PROMISED in the second tri.

    WHERE IS MY BURST OF ENERGY????

  • For every trimester change/symptom change etc, I've always got it on the Friday before.  My week changeover day is Monday, but my symptoms change on Fridays!  My 1st tri nausea ended on the Friday before 10 weeks.

    I started 3rd tri on Monday, but sure enough, last Friday I was a weepy, exhausted mess.  I almost took a mental health day because I was such a wreck. 

    I'm choosing to interpret this to mean baby is coming a few days early. Wink

  • I had been waiting for the swelling to hit...... OH goodness. I took off my boots for my dr appt today... and I literally had HUGE indentions in my legs around my ankles from the socks. Like I had cut off all the circulation for weeks on end!

  • I have been up to pee through the night since early on :( 2-4 times... Hoping it doesn't get worse!
  • Pee 2x a night..what I would give I'm up like 6x
  • It happened earlier for me, like 26 week. Bam MAJOR heartburn and peeing every hour at least  and many aches and pains!

  • Yep!  I say it's all the things I hated about the first tri plus more, and feeling huge all in one.
