I know how you feel. I am just over 19 weeks and am not showing yet so I am still in that just looking chubby phase. Seems that the only thing that has gotten bigger is my butt. I had spotting early on and was advised against sex and although it has stopped the fear is still there (for both me and DH). And to top it off I have horrible dreams every night of all of my worst fears- plane crashes, loved ones dying and of course my hubby cheating on me. So I have out of control hormones, I don't feel that great about how I look and I am having dreams that remind me of all of the bad stuff that I could ever imagine- it is enough to drive anyone crazy! Just keep in mind that you love each other and talk to him about it too- if for nothing more than to tell him your insecurities. I hope you feel better soon!
hey girl..... i do know how you feel. DH and i can not have sex untill after my first appointment on the 10th, and then i have to get the ok, so it may be longer. i get so wierd about things. my DH always teases about he and his co-workers going 'Hooters' for lunch. he has never actually gone, but it's like a running joke between us. he said that he was going to 'Hooters' the other day and i lost it. poor guy, a funny joke between us got wrecked. i am suspecious of everything. you have to understand my DH is the most monogomous (sp?) person in the world, so my thoughts are all crazy based.
i am already growing out, they say your 2nd you show earlier, but this is silly. i have to imaging alot of it has to do with being bloated.
does anyone else get insecure about the health of the baby? i am always worring about birth defects. i worry about everything.

I understand how you feel, cee27. I guess you already knew that. I feel very insecure about my body. I am getting chubby and have stretch marks on my thighs. Three+ months is a long time without sex, but we made it.
we might of had sex about 5 times since june, and last week the doctor told us not to have any sexual intercourse...so, it's been a rocky 2 months. I don't think we can sex until after the delivery+ and I'm only 14 weeks
I went for 9 months without when my husband was deployed. I got pregnant after a month of him being home.
I have now gone without for 6 months due to pregnancy complications. We are super close, intimate without sex, and are still very affectionate. Maybe it is just me but I really don't see what the big deal is about having to give up sex. especially if it is Doctors orders or could even remotely hurt the pregnancy.
