Re: CPW: Favorite trimester

  • I'm curious - those who voted 3rd tri - why was it better than 2nd? 2nd always gets all the glory when people talk about energy, etc.
    Am I the only one that thinks that miraculous 2nd tri energy bump is a wicked lie?  Less of a bump and more like imperceptible rise?  Or maybe it is just because I am old.  :)

  • I liked 2nd tri more with DS1. I felt cute, had energy, loved feeling sweet little baby movements, etc. However I think I like 3rd tri more with this LO. I have not been nearly as uncomfortable this time around, I was sleeping well until a couple weeks ago and my bump didn't really show up until 3rd tri either this time.

  • With DS, I loved the 2nd tri. I was out doing stuff, looking cute, feeling great... 3rd tri was a big ball of RLP, heartburn, waddling, and bed rest. Who knows what this PG is going to bring now that I'm 6 years older; it's already a different rodeo with 1st tri (so much sicker/more tired).

    I was still puking up until about 20 weeks and I did not feel that supposed boost of energy or that supposed boost of sex drive :(. Yes @MsAmandaPants‌ I agree its a big lie! Lol. Now, that I'm 34 weeks, I am very uncomfortable (but I have scoliosis, so I've kinda learned to live with being uncomfortable and its not a big deal to me).

    But, I chose 3rd tri because feeling her move, even when it's a painful karate chop to the rib, is the absolutely most amazing feeling in the world! Last night, DH was reading her a story and she got all perky and flippy. Best. Thing. Ever!

  • I just hit third trimester last week, and I already feel fatigued again. So, second tri was definitely the best for me. Other than having a belly, I didn't really feel pregnant - I felt like my usual self.

  • Lurking...

    Second, hands down.

    First is a PgAL mess for me (2 first tri losses here). Third brought me pre-e with DS and GD with DD....not to mention paranoia about a late loss. So, second wins my vote. The a/s is nervewrecking, but the rest aint bad.

    I have liked 2nd tri the best both with DD and with this one too. I had a cute bump both times and felt cute in my clothes. I had lots of energy and was motivated to get stuff done. I have been more uncomfortable in 3rd tri this time around and I still have 7 weeks to go.

  • 2nd tri. I had my appetite back, I had energy...no sex drive, though, and when we do have sex it's painful, which sucks. But now I just feel like LO is constantly pulling on my skin, my energy is depleted, I'm going through a bottle of Tums a week, and I miss sleeping on my back and belly. I'll still take all of this over 1st tri with its nausea and worrying, though.

    Am I the only one that thinks that miraculous 2nd tri energy bump is a wicked lie?  Less of a bump and more like imperceptible rise?  Or maybe it is just because I am old.  :)
    Not to go all "talk to me when you get to 3rd tri" on you, but I must say that for me, the 2nd tri energy is more obvious in retrospect than when I was in it.  I didn't realize that between weeks 28 and 30 I would just CRASH.  Of course, everyone's different.  But I would say I felt on the tired side of relatively normal in 2nd tri, versus the crushing fatigue of 1st tri and the just plain wiped the hell out of 3rd tri.  And I am old too.  :)

  • I absolutely loved 3rd tri. 1st tri was all worry and trying to keep secrets, then I had horrible hip pain during 2nd tri. I just loved when he was so big I could feel his little butt, elbows and feet stick out and I would poke at him and he'd kick back. It was just so amazing. I miss it so much and can't wait to experience it again! Now after 39 weeks was a different story. I made it to 41 weeks - still felt great but boy was that 9lb1oz baby heavy in there!!!
