    I love being pregnant but now I am done. The swelling is so bad now that it hurts and I can't do anything. I dread going to work because I have to stand the whole time.

    1. Laura- 28
    2. This is my first, but I do have an 11 year old step daughter
    3. Here
    4. I don't have internet at home, so the only time I get to check anything out is at work when I can sneak on for a bit.
    5. I just love the fact that I'm actually pregnant. Not too many complaints- I have GD which sucks! but other than that I'm just happy. My my has PCOD and it took her 9 years to have my lil sis, so I was afraid it might be harder for me to get preggo, but it didn't....thank God.
    Me Laura (28) DH (33) SD (11) First LO- Aubrey Grace due 12/05 3 fur babies Kharma (bull dog 4), Greivous (Catahoula almost 2) and Padamae ( Catahoula bulldog 3 months)

    1. Darrah - 33
    2. This is our first!!
    3. Just here in the preg community
    4. FB
    5. I love every little move she makes and I treasure every part of this experience - good or bad. The worst part was all of the horrible around-the-clock m/s in the beginning. The only complaint that I have now is how tired I always am and how I just don't seem to sleep well any more - EVER. :)
