I began my TTC journey in January 2005. It finally worked with the 5th IUI and along came Eliana! I started trying for a second (T42) a little over a year later, and was thrilled to get pregnant on the second try this time. Jacob soon joined our family! Not sure if I am done at two, but come along for my journey in motherhood. If you stop by, please leave me a short note! I like to know when I have visitors. :)

I used to have a hard time sleeping. It would take me hours to fall asleep. But then something happened (maybe having to wake up at 5am for work!) and I was falling asleep quicker and quicker, and usually even sleeping right through to my alarm!

No longer. It takes me a little longer these days to fall asleep, but if that was it, I could deal. But no. I am waking up many times at night, sometimes because I have to pee, but mostly just because I am waking up...and I am dreaming all the time which is very bizarre for me too. I suspect it is the combination of all these things that is making me feel like I get up in the morning no better off sleepwise than when I went to bed...

So, in spite of my protests yesterday about not feeling pregnant, maybe this is a pregnancy sign that I can take some comfort in, even if it means no sleep for the next 10 years or so of my life. LOL

When I was pregnant, I slept a lot but I also had a very active dream life. It was so good I couldn't wait to go to sleep! Sounds like you're getting your much-awaited signs :-)

BTW, are you going to buy the gender predictor kit?

Oh, I would tell you if I knew! LOL. I go back and forth between of course I will, to why waste the money...
I can't think beyond the ultrasound right now...I have to see that there is something in there before I can even think about a real baby. :)

Katrina, please don't worry about the symptoms. Just enjoy it. Live "as -if" you know this is going to work. I speak from experience....No symptoms at all, I had a very nice, easy pregnancy, no morning symptoms, swelling, etc....Even when the baby started to move, I didn't feel very different. Just wait until the last trimester, and then you will FINALLY feel pregnant! Love Raven
