    Well, I am exactly one week behind you, and I'm with you on some of that stuff!

    The graphic dreams are UNREAL. They can be really good or nightmarish, either way they just go on and on. This only started about a week ago. Not a night has gone by since then that I haven't dreamt all night (or felt like it IYKWIM!).



    Very, very tired, can't be arsed doing anything most of the time!

    You are very lucky on the hungry thing, my m/s is still hanging around, in fact I think it might be worse! I go off food more and more every day...........hence, I still feel very pregnant LOL! And I'm getting a nice big bump to help that feeling (it's really popped out today!).

    Headaches definitely, and I've just noticed the dry skin (very unusual for me), I thought it might be the weather????

    I cry most nights, but that's usually because I feel so bloody awful at night. Poor DH!

    Can you send your boob growing vibes my way now you're done with them? Mine are yet to do anything much at all LOL!

    Isn't it amazing how everything is so different for everyone? Hope it's not too hot for you in Portland today.

    PS Our best friends names are Nikki and Rick!!

    I had morning sickness in the first 4 months, mainly just feeling sick though. I also felt very tired. I'm almost 26 weeks, and these past few weeks I have had bad heartburn.

    I get pins and needless and numbness 'down there', especially when sitting in one position too long, it's kind of awkward LOL

    I'm 20 weeks and now experiencing:

    Difficulty getting to sleep, I can't breathe properly!

    If I'm on my feet for a few hours, then I lie down on the couch, when I get up - I can't walk! My lower back & legs are so crampy!

    Boobs are sooo huge! I hear they grow three times! I have had to order a bra in cos the size of them are soo big! With my first pregnancy, my boobs grew and did not go down. I think I'm gonna get a reduction later!

    Lying on the left side, but I prefer the right side.

    Stomach getting tightness sometimes (Braxton Hicks?)

    A decrease in wanting sex with my hubby. Actually finding it quite dry/painful.

    Hungry and eating all the time, but smaller amounts.

    Tired and;

    Peeing all the time, esp at night. !!!

    The last few days if i stand up for too long/in the same spot my right knee seems to go numb/to sleep, I'm having the glucose test in the next few days and then to see my doctor going to check with him as why its happening.
    Also the last few days i've been SO much more hungry during the day, DP comments that every time he looks at me i'm feeding my face i say :P to him hehe.

    I've got all sorts of strange symptoms:

    Sciatic nerve pain
    Feeling like I need to pee, but not much comes out
    Freak hairs growing randomly
    Light headedness
    Peeing myself when sneezing
    Sharp pains in tummy
    Lethargic
    Short tempered (NOT my usual self!)
    Thirsty (but it's been really hot!)
    Craving ice blocks!
    and yes, I too have strange tingling nipples. It seems to occasionally feel like they are itchy or changing shape rapidly. I always have to look down in a hurry to check that I'm not leaking! No leaks yet though!

    Aren't we a strange lot?! ha ha!

    Well, I'm just in to 2nd tri, but here's my list so far:

    OH MY GOD CONSTIPATION!!!!!!
    occasional feeling like someone has my nipples in a vice! oooh it hurts!
    insomnia
    stuffy nose compounded by hay fever
    and tiredness.
    breathlessness
    pounding heart
    just feeling so weak whenever I do anything, combination of the previous 2 on list.
    That's all I've had os far, but thats enough for me!

    side note:
    With the constipation, is it posible to hurt bub, like crush it, while you're... um.. straining? I'm scared i might push it out or something. Sorry that makes me sound really dumb. I'm just worried.

    LIsylee - I reckon you're more likely to do yourself damage than bubs... if you strain too hard you could hurt yourself. Try eating some high fibre fruit or dried fruits like figs or prunes (they don't taste too bad!) to help ease your constipation. Also make sure you're drinking plenty of water.

    I'm not a doctor or nurse or anything, so this is just my humble opinion. But I'm fairly certain you couldn't crush it or push it out or anything - the most you'll do is burst some blood vessels which may upset the placenta (maybe?) - but that's only if you're really straining to the point of fainting.

    Hope it gets better for you soon!

    Tummy rubs for you,

    Nettie

    LisyLee I know exactly what you mean !! I keep thinking I'm going to give birth when I have bad constipation, I know you can't but you don't stop thinking you're straining so hard it'll pop out ... I've just been eating fresh and dried fruit and haven't had constipation for a while now ...

    Hi - I've just entered the second trimester and I've got the following symptoms.

    These I've had since 3 weeks and don't appear like they will ever go away:
    Stuffy nose.
    Bleeding gums.
    These I've had for a while or on and off through the first trimester and are continuing:
    Tiredness
    Lack of sex drive
    Cry easily
    get angry easily
    memory loss
    pimples on BBs
    smaller appetite (I've lost 1.3 kilos).
    These have started within the last 3 weeks:
    low abdo pain when sneezing
    vivid dreams
    gone off vegemite
    pimples on chin
    sciatic pain on right side
    itchy tummy
    waking earlier than normal
    light nose bleeds
    sneezing all the time.

    I will be very interested to see how my symptoms change over the next 3 months.
