I read this today on Baby Center:
Some old friends — heartburn and constipation — may take center stage now. The pregnancy hormone progesterone relaxes smooth muscle tissue throughout your body, including your gastrointestinal tract. This relaxation, coupled with the crowding in your abdomen, slows digestion. Sluggish digestion can cause gas and heartburn — especially after a big meal — and contribute to constipation.
(I'm pretty sure I posted something similar to this last time around, but I am too lazy to look.)
I'm sure part of my not feeling right is this. But, I feel too, that with your first pregnancy, you spend so much time being elated, planning, building, living, that you don't realize when things are wrong or right. Now, the second time around, I'm not sure what is right or wrong, but I know I don't feel well.
I called my doctor's office at 9 this morning and left a message. I haven't heard back. I'm sure I'll have more to say about my OB practice at a later date. Right now, I still feel a little off, but I feel much better. I'm looking forward to going home and snuggling with my very very crabby child. We both need it.
