is it all downhill from here?

Postby megan6912 » Wed Jun 05, 2013 10:57 am

I'm 19 weeks but I'm the same size as I was at 37 weeks last pregnancy. I'm waddling, my crotch hurts, my back hurts, I'm leaky so I run to the bathroom 3 times an hour to make sure its just normal discharge, I'm crampy, and starting to feel miserable. I know I will look back when I'm 30 weeks and laugh cause I know this is the easy part, but is it all downhill from here? I thought I would get at least a few more weeks of feeling good before hitting this phase.

It started getting interesting for me around that time. I think you just adjust until the next crazy wave of symptoms hit. I felt ok around 22 weeks up until about 27 weeks then things started getting crazy again. Now I feel like I've hit a giant brick wall and I'm so tired and achy it's ridiculous! Hopefully you're just going through the halfway growth spurt and will re-adjust quickly!

It gets tough really fast. Nothing's easy about a twin pregnancy I'm afraid! At the point you're at I would go back and forth between good days and bad.

I think I was still pretty ok at that point but like Meg said, I had good days and bad days, and then progressively got fewer good days. Sorry it is seeming to hit you so early though!

yes, downhill from there. I felt like I went from morning sickness miserable to other aches and pains pretty quick without much of a honeymoon

I feel ya. I'm growing fast and starting to be more and more uncomfortable. My back and ribs are starting to really hurt too. At 22 weeks I'm the same size as another woman at my work who is at 30 weeks. Prenatal yoga is helping me a lot. But yeah, I know things will continue to change fast and that I should be happy with how good I feel now.
