    Traci @salamigirl3k, did you get the ointment @nicole mentioned? And hope the pain has subsided at least.

    Tee @roxy, at this rate, it looks like, I might need to be stalking you. That’s how much I miss you girl.  Hope you great.

    Wemi @wemi, welcome to the group and Congratulations once more. I need your LMP or EDD though, so I can add you to the tickers.

    Dooshima @ddo, I sent you a link, answering your question about the childbirth service operator in the US.

    Hi Ladies –  :hug:

    I pray everyone is fine. Me and baby are moving right along. @nicole I looked for your ointment and did not find one that would do the trick. The only thing that brings me relief these days is direct heat to my breasts. I seriously use my office mate’s hair blow dryer for relief at work lol. As painful as these breasts can be, I thank God for the temporary pain and this pregnancy. The sweetest thing is all the Movement in the middle of the night. I wouldn’t change the experience for the world.

    Hubby and I hope to move to Brooklyn soon for a larger flat. We are simply priced out of Manhattan now. The flat we have is just too small to accommodate a new baby and our parents who will travel to help us. Please keep us in your prayers, between searching for a new flat and a busy office, this pregnancy is really flying by!

    @salamigirl3k, it’s always so good reading from you :hugs:.

    Aww, so sorry you couldn’t find the nipple cream. I remember I used Palmers Cocoa Butter Nursing Cream, and it really helped me. I used it even before I gave birth, so you don’t have to worry about the name. But I had to :haha: at the thought of you positioned with a blow dryer over your boobies at work! Fun times, right :haha:

    As for the move to Brooklyn, a lot of people I know move out of Manhattan when it’s time to grow their family, so it’s perfectly normal. I know it’s stressful, especially now, but you’ll love it in the long run. My close friend moved to a lovely townhouse, also in Brooklyn, and even though she has a longer commute to work, they love their new home…with a little garden and all! We’ll be praying for you hun  :hugs:   :hugs:

    :bye: :good:   B-) Hey second trimesters!! It’s so crazy how the weeks are now flying by! I’m so happy when I see another day go by….Does any one use any pregnancy apps to track??

    <span class=”bbp-user-nicename”><span class=”handle-sign”>@</span>Oluwakemine</span> you remembered my cravings! :hug: ..the cravings were fully satisfied…because I discovered a Redeemed Christian Church of God!!In my little hamlet in southern england!! That church means business when they say they want a church on every street….anyway I discovered them and went to try their sunday service..to cut a long story short..became friends with the pastors wife…only to discover they had been TTC for 9 years and just blessed with twin boys!!! They had their naming ceremony for the boys a few weeks ago..and it was food orgasm. Look NIgerians are Nigerians whereever they go! Women from other Redeemed Churches around the UK came to support their person…..I was just eating things from different coolers & once they knew I was pregnant what did I not go home with..ofada sauce..meat pie..somebody shared buns…souvenirs…jollof rice…look I was a very happy camper! B-)

     

    Other than that the second trimester has been kind…the whole period really…and I thank God…looking forward to the 20 week scan…let me know how my crop is doing!…sleeping well now..though I wake up at 6am on the dot which is really strange..I cannot remeber when I never not needed an alarm clock to wake up..have not thrown up..been tired or any of those usual symptoms you fantatize that you must have during pregnancy..so to feel among I am happy to annouce I bought a pregnancy pillow :blush:   :blush:

    Love light and hugs to all!!

    Hi Ladies –

    My husband and I celebrated our graduation to 3rd Trimester last Sunday! We are over the moon. My breast are still giving me problems but I’ve been managing with the good ol’ blow dryer lol. Let me tell you I had my doctor literally laughing out loud about my solution to the problem. It’s honestly the only thing that saves me. Please pray for my attitude and patience these days. I see myself chewing heads off when people cross me and I’m not proud of myself. Everything is irritating me. I’m counting down the days until my maternity leave.  :hug:

    :haha: :haha: Traci @salamigirl3k, you got me Lol in public over this your now legendary “solution”  :haha:   :haha:   :haha:

    Rest and rest. I guess, you are once of those women, who feel extremely irritated as their EDD get closer. It comes with the territory but just try control your temper a bit. I used to know a woman, while growing up up, who whenever, it was nearing her EDD, she picked a fight with practically everyone in sight, small or big, baby or adult, no one was off limit.

    Those babies, she had back then are all grown ups now though. And nowadays, she’s as calm as a dove.  :wacko: Is a dove really calm? But you do get my drift? :-)

    It’s just a phase, it will pass and welcome to the third trimester. How far have you gone with baby preps?
