How far along are you? 13 weeks.

What symptoms are you experiencing and how are you feeling in general? I seem to get randomly tired.  I have huge bursts of energy, then I crash, hard.  I'm also going through periods of severe nausea and then I'm completely starving.  Even worse, occasionally I'm both at the same time.  And OMG the boob pain.  Gas as well...I don't remember many of these symptoms from my first pregnancy.  I do remember the boob pain, though.

What's been happening recently with your prenatal care? I'm elevated risk, so they keep seeing me every two weeks.  That gets kind of old after a while.  We haven't heard the heartbeat yet, but we had a dating ultrasound a few weeks ago, so I'm not concerned.  The OB thinks Baby is hanging out behind my pubic bone.  I have an appointment one week from Monday to try again..if they can't find one, I'm going to go in for another ultrasound.

Last time, the doctors were terribly concerned about my weight.  I'm definitely in the plus-sized category.  This time, I weigh more, but they haven't brought it up even once.  In fact, they occasionally yell at me for not eating enough.  I'm going to try to stick to the "gain fifteen pounds" deal, only because I don't want to try to lose a ton of weight after the baby comes.

Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc)? Too much.  My husband's company laid off about 50% of the staff.  He's in the remaining half, but they were all given a 20% pay cut.  If things don't turn around soon, he'll probably lose his job.  I can get insurance through my work, but it's not nearly as good of coverage, and I know already that I'd have to change OB/GYNs.  Actually, we'd probably qualify for welfare if we were just on my income...did that for the last baby, and while things turned out fine, it was a very stressful two months.  Apparently me getting pregnant makes us lose/quit jobs.

My mother also had surgery yesterday.  She had to have her hip replacement completely replaced.  There was an abcess that formed behind the bone because it started to wear funny.  Thankfully she seems to be doing fine.

Any questions you want to ask? Nope.
