I hear you on the energy thing. When mine's good, I workout and feel GREAT! But the next day, I may only manage routine stuff around the house and pass out in my chair for a few hours! I wake up wondering where my day went, but I guess if I'm that tired, my body must need it? Hubby is looking forward to when HE will be able to feel some of the kicks and punches I've been getting to enjoy lately, but I assure him the times that little Miss is moving around when he starts talking...like she recognizes his voice. I'm noticing she's more active in the day and then maybe for 5-10 mins around 11pm. But mostly, when I get out of bed, she's already been moving for a little while, or else starts to as soon as I'm up. And again late morning, and earlier in the afternoons. I'm not getting my hopes up, but would it ever be awesome if she kept that schedule OUT of the womb! lolView Thread
Thanks! And Congrats to you and your growing Family as well! I'm really enjoying feeling her move and being able to tell the difference in punches, kicks, and her rolling over. It's been quite the experience! My lower back, if I'm particularly busy in a given day, requires I take it easy the following day, but it's not too bad...just lets me know I have to adjust to certain things. My energy is pretty good, though last week there was a day I found myself taking long naps most of the day! Haven't been THAT tired since my 1st Trimester! But for the most part, my energy has actually been quite good! How about you, how have you been feeling?View Thread
Oh yay! Will do! Yeah, I alternate yoga on days I'm not doing a modified circuit routine, and I'm really enjoying it! I have an elliptical I use, but as I get bigger, I'll likely switch to the stationary bike. For now, I'm doing as much as I safely can! Among the many benefits for the baby, I'm pretty keen on the one I've read that says babies born of Mommies who workout through pregnancy sleep through the night longer! View Thread
I had some very mild queasiness in the very beginning, but that was it. Never had any full on nausea. My workouts in the first trimester started off good and then I was overcome with lack of energy, so it dwindled a bit. Now that I'm in the 2nd Trimester, energy has returned and the feeling I have once I'm done working out is amazing! I go back in 4 wks for the anatomy scan, and you know, as much as I've been looking forward to finding out if we are team blue or team pink, more and more I've also been wanting to know how big my LO is and projected to be on the big day! When do you go in to find out about yours?View Thread
I had something similar happen to me in Oct last year. Following month, just had the light pinkish-brown stuff, so when it was over, went to the Dr. She said Oct sounded like a missed implantation and told me to just relax and take a mini vacation over a weekend or something if need be. We weren't actively trying at the time. Then in Dec we found out we are expecting! So, see how things are next month, if AF is a no show, take a HPT, and either way, you may want to go see your OB/GYN if things aren't what you're used to as "normal" next month. Good Luck and keep us posted!View Thread
I hear you. I did the NT Scan because it was non intrusive. I have no problem giving them as much of MY blood as they want to collect, and of course any time we get to go in for an Ultrasound, it's exciting to get a sneak peak of our LO! Sounds like you're on the right track so far, so stay healthy and keep us posted!
VicsEandJ gives very sound advice. I am 38 and expecting my 1st in late August. We had the NT scan today and while we still have to wait a week for the blood results to come in, we were delighted to see a VERY active LO showing off for us in there today! I worked out on a regular basis prior to conceiving so was given thumbs up from the Dr to continue on for as much through my pregnancy as I can, modifying exercises as need be to make sure my body temp doesn't get too high. I eat several small meals a day, and mostly healthy (hard to say no when DH comes home with ice cream or choc chip cookies tho...lol). So as long as you are both healthy and you know this is something you want, perhaps getting yourself checked out with your Dr first, letting him/her know that you're planning to conceive would help alleviate some of your DH's worries? Hoping we get to hear good news from you soon!
