So far this pregnancy I haven't really noticed too much of any symptoms.

What I do notice are slight....

  • mood swings (okay so sometimes these arent that slight)
  • nauseous (not to the point that I vomit, but it sneaks up on me and I gag)
  • nap time (I usually take a 2 hour nap everyday, though some days I can stay awake)
  • energy (even if I am awake, I just don't have energy to do much of anything)
  • eating (seems like I can get very little down before I know nothing else will stay down and I need to eat every 2-3 hours...otherwise see symptom #2)
So those are most of them. The others a bit more obvious are the using the restroom (every 2 hours!) and my stomach stretching.

The other day Dave and I were grocery shopping and I moaned and held my stomach. He, of course, thought something was wrong. I laughed and said if something was wrong I would let you know. He wanted to "know" what it felt like...the best I could explain was like a crocheted blanket, pulling in different directions. I know they are just making room...but sometimes it almost takes my breath away. I can only imagine what it is going to feel like with 4 little hand and feet kicking all around!!

I'll take it!!! :)
