    Default The good, the bad and the ugly

    I seem to be simultaneously complaining and loving some pregnancy things. Thought we could share them here.
    The good: feeling bubs kicks, having people smile at me when they see my belly, baby shopping

    The Bad: when bub kicks my bladder, leg cramps, getting up a million times a night to wee.

    The Ugly: vaginal discharge, leaky boobs, hormonal teary outbursts

    Lol! My husband says I complain alot but I also love it!

    LOVE: the kicks and wiggles and even feeling like I have a real bump now

    HATE: when he must pick the smallest part of the uterus to Roll over the pressure can get really icky feeling and when he kicks my stomach so bad I chuck!

    The UGLY: agreed the vaginal discharge is sending me mental and I've never had "BO" really before I feel stinkier than pre preg

    The good: the kicks/movements, seeing my stomach move, feeling so much love for my baby already

    The bad: waking up every 2 hours, pains in my ribs, not being able to bend over

    The ugly: agree with ally on this one - the BO! no one warned me this would happen and its disgusting lol

    Oh goody!
    The Good:
    how much my bub kicks when i'm reading or watching tv. The fact that DH and i have figured out a name finally, after weeks of to-ing and fro-ing.
    The Bad:
    How much my bub kicks when i'm trying to concentrate at work or sleep!! The constant worrying about how we will cope with our new budget when i go on leave. Oh, the swollen feet.
    The Ugly:
    Yep, the discharge, the thrush, the itchy nipples, the apparent dermatitis/chronic dry skin around my privates. Ggggrrrr.

    Thanks OP, i needed that.

    The Good: Feeling bub wiggling and moving, watching my bump move, and the fact that m bump is big enough so that other people now know I am pregnant and not just fat :P Also I'm going to go against the grain here and say leaky boobs, I love knowing that my body is getting ready to feed my bub

    The Bad: Not sleeping well, rib and back pain, having no sex drive whatsoever.

    The Ugly: Like everyone else, for me its discharge :P

    The good:
    Feeling bub move, having an excuse to wear my pjs all day every day, having an excuse to not have to go do things I don't want to, the fuzzy warm gooey pregnancy hormones, the super nice and healthy finger nails.

    The Bad:
    Vomiting at certain smells, sneezing and then being kicked in the bladder so I have to sprint to the toilet, Being on bed rest/minimal movement rest and pelvic rest, looking like a fatty fatty fatty (my silly little bump hasn't popped yet!), the crazy tears, the clingy feels, not fitting into pretty clothes, hip/back pain so I walk like an old lady after getting out of a chair.

    The Ugly:
    I agree the bo - I don't have enough pj shirts to compete with the sweat!
    The discharge - ewwww.
    The phantom boob leaks (Ive only leaked once so far but I keep feeling like I'm leaking!), itchy nipples.




    (p.s sorry, I know I'm not quite 3rd tri yet )

    I was similar. And DP didn't like DTD as he was scared he'd hurt the baby! Lol. Mind, a lot of the time we didn't cos I would go to bed and just pass out instead of trying to get him in the mood. Lol
