@eecuadrado: Oh, girl. You have a slew of things to “look forward to.”
Constipation (eat prunes. If you hate prunes, get orange flavored ones. Stay clear of fiber one bars. If you’re like me they give me horrible gas that first makes me feel like my insides are forcing themselves out of my bellybutton)
Acid indigestion/heartburn (I eat applesauce–I swear to cheesus it works)
Sore boobies (if you find a cure, let me know)
Headaches (and possibly some dizziness/tingling of the face) (Tylenol is only thing approved)
Frequent peeing (lean forward when you pee to make sure you’re empty)
Mood swings (just tell everyone to steer clear and have a small piece of chocolate)
Anxiety (get a maternity pillow like the Snoogle. You will need something anyway if you are a back sleeper becuase after the first tri, you shouldn’t sleep on your back anymore, so this hjas trained me to sleep on my side. Sleeping with something between your legs helps. You body will start creating more blood and oxygen, so you will feel weird, and a maternity pillow helps a lot. If your heartbeat is fast, it’s ok. If it reaches over 100, go in just to make sure you are ok. Obviously this happened to me so I feel like an expert lol)
aaannnndddd cravings. All you need is a good man willing to go to the grocery story after you’ve told him 3 times “I want salsa” and then changed your mind 3 times. Then when you finally decide, “Ok, I really do want salsa” he will look at you and say, “Are you sure this time?” And you look at him unsure, he totally gets it anyway, lol.

**I also want to add that unless you are having very bad cramping along with bright red bleeding, don’t freak out. I have had cramping every since I conceived, and my baby is ok (as far as I know–my 12 week is October 4). I haven’t had any spotting, but it is normal, so don’t panic.
