Oh is it? Mine seems to have cleared up at last... For now anyway.

Any advice on pillow arrangements for sleeping? I am so uncomfortable, I wake up in pain in the morning, I have one of those pillows at you lie in the middle of and I usually have a pillow between my knees too but my lower back is killing me.

No good advice but lots of sympathy t&n'sm. I've got a DreamGenii pillow which does lower back and between-the-knees support as long as you stay on your left side, but I usually wake up lying on my back with bits of pillow twisted between my legs and spend half the night trying to get comfortable again.

No great advice here re pillows either. I too need one between my knees to drop off, but then wake loads as I have to take it with me when I turn. I have to say the one bonus to having been I'll this week is that I've slept like a log for the first time in months. Not sure it's quite worth the trade off, but a silver lining at least...

Induction tomorrow as waters have gone - just like with munchkin. Gutted as means lots of monitoring and restrictions, but guess healthy safe baby is the priority.

Good luck NK, I hope everything is going well for you! I was induced with L and all the equipment and monitoring were definitely a pain and not what I had planned on, but it still managed to be a good birth experience overall.

Just had an appointment today at 18 weeks. Baby was being shy and it took a while to find the heartbeat, but we did track it down eventually. Dr. was surprised at how tired I still have been, and is having me get bloodwork done again to test iron levels and also my thyroid. My iron levels were fine at last check and I don't think I have any other symptoms of a thyroid problem, but I guess it is good to have it checked to be sure. It would be nice if there was some magic cure to help me get a little more energy! We're now scheduled for our anatomy scan two weeks from today. I am very excited to see the baby again and find out what we are having!
