Still here too. Feeling slightly less nausea...yesterday I only took a Zofran in the afternoon, and today I haven't had one yet and I'm feeling pretty good. Hoping the ms is lifting soon this time!!! How's everyone else?

Every time I post that it's been x amount of days since I threw up, I start vomiting again. Never fails! I threw up yesterday for the first time in several days. What's worse is it scratched/burned my throat so bad that it hurt for the rest of the day and made it hard to eat

I still get nauseous a lot, I still take Zofran 1-3 times a day (usually twice) and I still occasionally vomit. I'd definitely say I am better than my lay-on-the-couch-all-day-every-day phase though.

Overall I think the m/s is getting better. I feel pretty good, actually, during the day, but still crummy most nights. I have been trying to get more exercise, which feels good at the time, but doesn't actually seem to make the rest of the day any better, necessarily. Anyway, it makes me feel better about the fact that we went through a whole jar of peanut butter in about 2 weeks cause it's one of the only things I can consistently eat. I pretty much live on pb and eggs. :

I don't know why, but I cannot stand peanut butter since I got pregnant. Just the smell makes me want to barf. Which is fun when I fix my kids their PB sandwiches almost every day.

Does anything trigger yours? Eating less or eating more? Sleep schedule? I'm trying to figure out if it's something I've done different lately.

Mee too! (Not the eggs though) I've been living on PB & honey sandwiches, but today a co-worker brought Irish stew and I swear that I've never had anything more delicious in my life!!! :

Being tired or doing too much brings on my m/s. My major complaint though right now, is being dizzy and blacking out. It seems like without fail if I stand up (even if I get up slowly) I start losing my vision and feel weak. I never faint but often my vision goes completely black for a few seconds before returning. Its scary when I'm holding a babe in my arms.
The m/s seemed to get a bit better for a couple of days, but it hit full force again this am. I'm glad that it's not always full force every day though. That would be horrible! I haven't started throwing up every day yet. : Though according to my notes of other pregnancies I still have another week before that starts. But I've already thrown up more this pregnancy then any of my previous ones. Oh well, I know this passes! Just please make it soon!

This morning I woke up thinking "pate." So I went to the grocery store before school and bought some fancy French chicken liver pate. And I ate half the package at lunchtime.....

Today has been the best I've felt in a while (knocking on wood). I hope it lasts!!!

OMG, pate!!!!!!! Wow! I consider myself to be a true epicurean, but I just never have been able to handle pate. After you said "deviled eggs" I totally started to salivate. I will be making them as soon as I get home today. Yum!!!! :

I'm glad you have felt so good! I felt pretty good yesterday, too. In fact I made dinner for the first time in 6 weeks!!!! It wasn't much, garbanzo bean and tomato soup with rosemary, but it was really good.

I have a question for you all. I have a strange "gut" problem. By the end of the day, when I try to eat dinner, I can hardly eat anything at all but I feel STUFFED!!!! I mean, like after you eat Thanksgiving dinner AND dessert. So I'll be starving, but I can't eat more than a few bites of anything or I feel just awful. I don't know if it's gas...I don't seem "gassy" when it happens, and I certainly am not actually full already. I've tried Gas X and Tums, and neither does a bit of good, but I'll be feeling pretty good and then this will happen. To top it all off, my stomach will be so distended and firm that I look like I'm about 5 months pregnant. It's awful!!! Does anybody know what could be causing this, or have any advice about how to get rid of it????? HELP!

ok...I need my cheerleading squad. I'm Xdpo, because I don't understand my chart, but I wanted to share with my long-lost friends. I'm feeling very pregnant. Many symptoms. Like, either I'm pregnant or I have a weird post-m/c phantom echo thing going on. Can you ladies think pregnant thoughts for me? I really want to join you again this month, m/s and all!!!! Ok, early April would be ok with me. I don't even know when I should test...but not quite yet. : ps---I don't believe the crosshairs on FF. I think I O'd on CD17

Based on that chart I'd wait at least another 5 days to test. But it's so all over the place, it's hard to say for sure.

: for you. I know how confusing a post-mc chart (and a post-mc body!) can be. We're all watching your chart and hoping for a BFP for you this month!

It's so good to hear from you! I think your chart looks great, and we want you back asap. I think you probably O'd on CD17, too. Anyway, I would wait 4 or 5 days to test, like Talula said. I know a bunch of women who have gotten pg their first cycle after a m/c. A woman at my husband's work had a m/c at nearly 12 weeks and then got pg the next month. She is now 26 weeks along with a baby boy. Even if it's not this month, it will be soon.

Add me to the list of chart stalkers. :

Thank you so much for your support, ladies!!! I hesitated to post about this here, but I just needed to lean on the shoulder of some of you original TTC chicas. It means so much to me that you're rooting for me! I'm so scared that it's just post-m/c echos. Love you, ladies!

: Thinking of you Tear!

I had a pretty crummy day yesterday. I slept horribly and had really achey hips and an awful headache. I ended up staying home from work and keeping ds home. Fortunately I convinced him to nap with me. I also started getting some big time food aversions....ugh. I really felt, at least when trying to sleep, that I was five months pregnant, not five weeks!
Today was better. Didn't sleep great, still a bit achey but not as bad. I realized though that I think it is sciatica. I had it with ds 1 later in my pg, but have had achey hips with AF ever since. So I'm working on some yoga postures to help and thinking of sleeping in a reclined supported back bend, it felt great when I came home today.
No nausea today really, but some definite food aversions and have a tough time eating the last bite or two of things.
I've got two appointments set up with midwives in a couple of weeks. Very excited, especially about the one I spoke with on the phone.
