Re: Having a really hard time with pregnancy

I am in the same boat as you mama! This being my first time being pregnant, I can't imagine EVER wanting to do it again. They say you forget, though...

I had a bout of awful sciatica where I couldn't move at all. I felt like an old person. On the recommendation of my boss I got Shiva Rae's prenatal yoga dvd at Target and after a few days of doing it, the sciatica was almost gone. A week later I don't have it anymore. I really recommend it.

I feel awful after breakfast too and I'm thinking I've got low blood pressure or low blood surgar or something because I have almost passed out twice now while just sitting. It's definitely not fun.

I won't say anything like hang in there it's all worth it to you because that's so not what you want to hear right now (trust me, I know.) I guess all I can say is I try and do things to make me happy(er) like get my nails done, get pedicures, eat something yummy and take warm baths. I also make lists of all the amazing things I'll do once this is over like drink wine and beer, eat lots of sushi, and start dropping this excess weight. It's the only thing that keeps me going!
