8 weeks and counting

Hi Room 679. I so far all is well, but haven’t seen the doctor yet. I’ve got normal pregnancy discomforts. The fatigue is way more profound this time–I’m thinking because of the GBS. I had a bit of shortness of breath, but that seems to have resolved. I’m really looking forward to the 2nd trimester and more energy.

Elle — I’d like to know what you do about the delivery. I did natural childbirth last time, and had shorter than average labor, but I’m worried about my endurance and muscle strength this time. I’ve got time to build it up obviously, but my hips were the weakest, and remain so now. Will you let me know? Thanks.
