18 weeks today and...

I've had a bit more spotting (not enough to alarm me, but enough to be annoying), and the morning sickness is still going strong. At this point, I'm just hoping it eases up before I go into labor. ;) 

How are you ladies feeling?

People make fun of me for waddling already, it's just more comfortable on my hips to walk that way.

I'm having a horrible time sleeping, and I can't get comfortable!

Sleeping comfortably is nearly impossible. :(

And it's hot as hell which makes it worse.

Hope you feel better soon.

 18 weeks today as well and i've been feeling pretty good...insomnia has its good and bad nights which is better than i was dealing with.  My wardrobe is getting smaller and smaller and smaller...althought I haven't gained any weight, I think i wear the same outfits to work every week because i just don't have many options with this growing tummy. 

What is your dr saying about your spotting and ms??

18 weeks & 1 day and I'm feeling good, still sleepy most of the time (my days and nights are messed up right now) and I barely have energy, I still have a horrible gag reflux but its not nearly as bad as before.

The good news is I'm feeling baby girl move around SO much! She is very very active at night and I'm just loving being able to feel her kick so much! :)

The spotting is light enough that I haven't called about it. At my last appointment the doctor asked me if I'd tried this that and the other thing and expressed unhappiness with my unwillingness to take the medication that had been described to me, but that was about it. I'm not losing a ton of weight anymore (in fact, hadn't lost or gained ANYTHING since my last appointment), so she's not worried.

Hoping the spotting goes away soon, although not alarming I'm sure it must be pretty frustrating and worrisome. I'm 20w2d and feeling good except for occasional dizziness and a super hard time finding and keeping a comfortable sleeping position. Ugh.

Well at least you aren't losing anymore. Is spotting normal for you in pregnancies?

Yes, unfortunately, it seems normal for me to bleed in some capacity or another in my pregnancies.  It's very frustrating, but I'm glad it's light this time. With our first I woke up drenched in blood at 20 weeks. That was terrifying.
