I always know with-in just a few days of conception that I'm pregnant. It hits me like a ton of bricks...the extreme fatigue, sore boobs, and over all bloating. I don't know why my symptoms come on so strong or with such intensity, they just do. The first trimester is difficult right from the start. I feel beaten up and just plain icky! Icky...There's a good mom term for you.
The reason I know this so well, is that I have been pregnant now 6 times, 4 of which have been this year. Of the 32 weeks so far in 2010, I've been pregnant for 21 of them. You can probably guess how I'm feeling so far about good old year 2010. Life has been hormonal, emotional and tiring. All these pregnancies have taken a visible tole on my body, and a not so visible tole on my heart.
