Okay, so, fortunately I don't have that many negative side effects going on, and I have a lot of pleasant "side effects" that help to counter-balance them.
I love having a living person inside of me...however uncomfortable he or she is making it in there! The perpetual little kicks and wriggles continually remind me of the new little person that will shortly be on the outside where we can cuddle and kiss him or her...
Who are you in there?
On the not-so-fun side of things, I'm dealing with a lot of nasty heartburn already...and I still have 10 weeks for it to get progressively worse! Bleh.
The problem with heartburn in late pregnancy...you're supposed to prop yourself up at night to help, right? But you can't lay on your back, so you end up in a very awkward position that often leaves you with a neck-ache and screaming hips in the morning. I think I might end up in the rocking chair or on the couch for the latter part of this pregnancy. :-/
I know many of you moms have dealt with this...do you have any clever solutions or ideas for dealing with heartburn?
